Prüvit’s KETO//OS ketone supplement product launched in 2015. Since I began taking the product in March 2016, it’s become part of my routine and diet. Not long after, I decided to partner with Prüvit as a promoter, sharing my story and helping educate people about the product., consider any side effects and even look at a few recipes.
My goal is to give you my opinions of KETO//OS and provide the info that covers most of the questions I’ve had and received from others. I hope you get a lot of value from this guide.
So, I wanted to put together a complete KETO//OS review and results guide. In this guide, we cover what KETO//OS is, what it does, results on the product, compare the different versions

What is KETO//OS?
To put it simply, KETO//OS (Ketone Operating System) is a patent-pending exogenous ketone supplement drink. It puts Pure Therapeutic Ketones in your body to use as an alternative fuel source. It creates a dual fuel source where ketones and glucose exist simultaneously inside the body (more on ketones and ketosis below).
KETO//OS also acts as a fourth macronutrient since the ketones in the product have caloric value just like fat, protein and carbs. The product’s origin goes back to research funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and the Office of Navy Research. It has been lab-tested numerous times. More info on the reach done on KETO//OS and its applications can be found here.
The ketone in KETO//OS is beta-hydroxybutyrate (or BHB for short). It’s formulated to put you into ketosis within one hour. Essentially, it’s a revolutionary on-demand ketone delivery drink.
There has been a lot of confusion between KETO//OS and a ketogenic diet. KETO//OS is not a ketogenic diet product. You do not have to be on a keto diet to take the product. While a ketogenic diet can—through drastic carb and sugar restrictions—put you into nutritional ketosis, KETO//OS puts the ketones into your body.
Understand Ketones and Ketosis
To understand what KETO//OS is and what it does, it’s important to understand ketones and ketosis.
Ketones are produced naturally by the body when you are in fat-burning mode instead of burning carbs. This state is called ketosis. This is when your body is using ketones as energy instead of glucose (because the glucose has been used up).
Reaching ketosis was much more common before our modern diets shifted to be very carb-heavy. High fat and modern protein was the norm. But with today’s high-carb, sugar-packed diets and foods, reaching ketosis can be incredibly difficult since it requires strict limits on carbs. So, the vast majority of people never get to experience the benefits of being in ketosis and being fueled by ketones.
Elite athletes, especially body builders and fitness models, are quite familiar with what it takes to reach ketosis since they often have to cut weight for competitions. This means almost no carbs or sugar.
With KETO//OS, you can experience the incredible benefits of ketones as a fuel source without the major restrictions of a ketogenic diet. Benefits of ketones and ketosis include:
Heightened sense of focus and mental clarity (reduced brain fog)
Lasting energy without the crash
Reduced cravings (especially for carbs and sugar)
Reduced inflammation and stiffness
All this helps you to not only feel better, but makes it much easier to make healthier choices, be more active while protecting your lean muscle mass. Ketones create more ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) per unit of oxygen than glucose, which makes working out much more efficient. It also results in more endurance.
Another profound aspect of ketones is that they do not require insulin to enter the cell for energy. This is a game-changer. Also, multiple studies have shown that cancer cells cannot thrive when the body is in a state of ketosis. This certainly does not mean that KETO//OS treats or fights cancer, but it’s clear that ketones are a major enemy of cancer cells.
KETO//OS Review and Results – What to Expect
Of course, results are what matter. Everyone’s body, health and goals are different, so everyone’s results using KETO//OS are likely to be different as well. But here are a few things to expect.
One of the main questions people ask: What does KETO//OS taste like?
There are a lot of nasty supplements out there, but KETO//OS honestly tastes fantastic. The original Orange Dream flavor tastes like an orange cream cycle or an orange sherbet. It’s sweetened with stevia. It’s a fine powder so it’s very easy to mix. A shaker cup and some ice water will do.
How I Feel on KETO//OS
Some of the first things I noticed when I began incorporating KETO//OS into my diet were nearly instant reduction in cravings, less overall stiffness, increased mental clarity and a natural, calm energy. This is different from a stimulant, where energy can crash quickly.
(And trust me, I’ve tried a lot of stimulants and supplements.)
Most days I drink a serving around 10:00 a.m. and then eat my first meal about 11:30 or noon. Here’s a link to my blog post and video giving my KETO//OS Review in my first two weeks on the product. Some people experience results from the first serving. Others, it takes a few days or even weeks for them to notice a major difference. Again, it all depends on the individual. Someone who is sedentary with a lot of weight to lose is probably going to experience different results than a performance athlete on a low-carb diet.
How to Use KETO//OS
There is no KETO//OS diet plan or any specific menu to follow. The product can be incorporated into what you are already doing. There’s no need to make drastic changes. Just use KETO//OS whenever you need your four best hours in the day. Ease it into your routine.
As mentioned earlier, KETO//OS can me mixed with a simple shaker cut and some ice water. You don’t even need a mixer ball or a blender. The powder is fine enough to mix very well with water and ice (plus, the ice acts as a mixer).
You don’t need to pound it down. In fact, drinking it too fast might upset your stomach a little, especially the 2.1 version that contains the healthy MCT fat. I usually drink mine over the course of about 15 minutes.
KETO//OS Before and After
There have been thousands of people experience weight loss on KETO//OS. This of course depends on individual goals and lifestyles. Some have experienced a moderate amount of fat loss, while others have shed more than 100 pounds.
Now, this doesn’t mean that KETO//OS is a weight loss product. It’s not (remember, we covered what it is earlier). Rather, it’s a ketone supplement that optimizes your body for fat loss. It can help turn your body into a fat-burning machine.
The combination of appetite suppressant (you eat less), increased energy (you feel better and want to be more active) and heightened mental focus (you are more engaged in what you’re doing, including your workouts), result in a body optimized to burn fat and preserve muscle (which burns MORE fat!).
Comparing KETO//OS MAX vs. 2.1 vs. 3.0 vs. KREME
Currently, KETO//OS comes in three versions and flavors, with a fourth flavor on the way (see below). Then there is the KETO KREME product. Info on all KETO//OS products and packs can be found here.
So, what’s the difference in the products and versions? Let’s look at them in the order they released.
KETO//OS Orange Dream 2.1 is the original flavor, and this one has even gone through a few formulations. Version 2.1 comes in Charged (caffeine) and Caffeine-free. It has MCT powder (medium-chain triglycerides), which is the primary source of the fat. This is the same type of fat in coconut oil. From my experience, this version is the best appetite suppressant because of the combination of the BHB ketone (the primary ingredient) and the MCT fat.
The 2.1 version has the most calories at 110 (60 calories come from the fat). If trying the 2.1 version for the first time, you might want to take half a serving in case your stomach isn’t used to the fat. Eating something small before you drink it can also help. But if you are used to the fat, you should be fine.
More info on Orange Dream 2.1 can be found here.
KETO//OS Chocolate Swirl 3.0 was the second flavor and version to release, this one with a chocolate flavor some compare to a Tootsie Roll. The main difference with 3.0 is that does contain caffeine but does not contain any MCT fat. There is also additional potassium and slightly more sodium to balance out the natural diuretic effect ketones can have. It also includes a prebiotic to promote healthy bacteria, and adds an amino acid blend (L-taurine, L-tyrosine, L-arginine, L-leucine).
With no MCT fat, this version is just 56 calories per serving. The 3.0 version may be a better option the morning or early afternoon since it contains caffeine. Some people drink 3.0 in the morning and then a serving of the caffeine-free 2.1 in the late afternoon.
More info on Chocolate Swirl 3.0 can be found here.
KETO//OS MAX Maui Punch is the most potent formula available and it contains the most amount of ketones. As Prüvit states on its website, “KETO//OS® MAX is the most advanced version of our Ketone Operating System yet.” I definitely notice the most results on the MAX. It tastes like a Hawaiian Punch flavor, and like the other versions, is sweetened with stevia. It’s not as “heavy” as the Orange Dream 2.1. Pruvit uses the term “bio-available” which means that MAX is optimized so that your body is able to absorb and use the ketones better and faster. It’s essentially the result of continual improvements on the product.
MAX comes in both Charged (caffeine) and caffeine-free versions. It also has the fewest calories of the versions with just 40. There are no calories for fat, protein or sugar, and there are just 5g of carbs. So, the calories are coming from the BHB ketones. Currently MAX can only be order in the individual On the Go packs (more on the ways to order below).
More info on KETO//OS MAX can be found here.
KETO//KREME is a totally different product than KETO//OS, yet is incredibly complementary. KREME does not contain any ketones, but is formulated to help the body adapt to and produce ketones. Here’s how Prüvit describes it: “KETO//KREME, derived from the heart of the coconut, is one of the healthiest natural fats known to the world. Our bodies convert fat into energy quickly giving you a powerful mental boost–we call it brain fuel.”
KREME makes a healthy coffee creamer, giving your body healthy fats to convert to energy. There are several creative KETO//KREME recipes for baking and cooking as well (see some below). It contains coconut better, a patented Ceylon cinnamon extract, stevia and MCT powder. It helps provide quick energy to the brain and helps digestion and gut health. One serving is 160 calories.
More info on KETO//KREME can be found here.
KETO//OS MAX Swiss Cacao was available for purchase in limited-supply bulk order only near the end of March. It is essentially a chocolate MAX flavor. This version was available to Prüvit promoters to try at the company’s convention at the end of January, and should be fully available to customers for purchase in April 2017.

How to Buy KETO//OS – Packs and Costs
OK, so we’ve looked at and compared the different versions of KETO//OS, now let’s look at how to buy KETO//OS. There are a few different options in quantity, price, how often you get it, and even the possibility to get it for free.
There are two packaging options: On the Go (OTG) individual packs and KAN 30-serving canister (includes serving scoop). Quantities ordered can vary. KETO//OS MAX currently is available only in the OTG packs.
The Smartship option saves you roughly 10% as an automated monthly order. You can cancel your Smartship any time. The benefit is that you don’t have to place individual orders every month, and you don’t have to go days without your KETO//OS.
Here are the basic options for purchasing KETO//OS:
KETO//OS Orange Dream 2.1 and Chocolate Swirl 3.0
15 servings (OTG) = $85 ($76 w/Smartship)
30 servings (OTG) = $160 ($144 w/Smartship)
30 servings (Kan) = $144 ($133 w/Smartship)
60 servings (Kan 30 + OTG 30) = $300 ($255 w/Smartship)
20 servings (OTG) = $130 ($117 w/Smartship)
20 servings (OTG) = $74 ($66 w/Smartship)
60 servings (OTG) = $197 (saves $25 – no Smartship with this option)
Family Pack: 90 servings (90 OTG Mix Pack, Orange Dream & Chocolate Swirl) = $408

“I put on 30-40 pounds when my wife had our baby. When I first tried KETO//OS, I felt like superman in 20 minutes. I’ve lost over 45 pounds so far with this product!”
-Michael Rutherford, Independent Pruvit Promoter
“MAX is the one I use for energy while I’m working out. It definitely makes me feel better in my training.”
-Anthony Pettis, UFC Fighter and Independent Pruvit Promoter
“KETO//OS is an alternate fuel source that most of us just don’t get to use unless we starve ourselves.”
-Toney Freeman, Professional Bodybuilder and Independent Pruvit Promoter
KETO//OS Side Effects
There are just as few minor KETO//OS side effects. Primarily, with the Orange Dream 2.1, some people may not be used to the MCT fat, so there might be some minor stomach discomfort at first. To help this, it’s recommended that you eat a little something before taking your first serving. You might also want to take half a serving at first.
Other side effects would be any typical reactions someone might have to caffeine – about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.
There are more ways to drink KETO//OS than just missing it with water. There have been a lot of cool and fun recipes created with the product. Here are a couple KETO//OS recipes you can try:
Better Iced Coffee
1 pack KETO//OS MAX Chocolate Swirl 3.0
5 oz unsweetened caramel flavored cold brew coffee
1 oz heavy whipping cream
8 oz water
Pour over ice, shake vigorously, and drink with purpose
1 pack KETO//OS MAX Maui Punch
12 oz pineapple flavored sparkling water
4 oz strawberry flavored sparkling water
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
Shake, pour over ice, sip, and think of the sand between your toes
