The ketogenic or keto diet is a very little carbohydrates, high-fat diet. Once an individual starts the keto diet it takes several days for the body to enter a state known as ketosis. It is a nutritional state characterized by high levels of ketones in the blood and weight loss. Ketones are a chemical created by the liver when the body does not have enough insulin to turn sugar (glucose) into energy. The body then needs another source, so it uses fat instead. The liver turns fat into ketones and releases them into the bloodstream where muscles and other tissues can use them for fuel.
There are two main ketone bodies produced during ketosis, acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate. These ketone bodies replace glucose with fuel and provide the brain, heart, and muscles with energy. It is these bodies that may be responsible for weight loss associated with a ketogenic diet. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24140022/
Ketone salts are one of the forms of ketone supplements. In this form, ketones are bound to a salt, usually sodium, potassium, calcium, or magnesium. Ketone salt supplements have been shown to increase blood ketone levels mimicking what occurs during ketosis when a person follows a ketogenic diet. Therefore, ketone salt supplements are a safe and simple method at raising ketone blood levels, compared with the difficulty of preparing and consuming a ketogenic diet. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3810007/
Apple cider vinegar may help with weight loss. Studies have shown that vinegar can increase satiety (feeling full), which will help with eating less calories and therefore aid in weight loss. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16015276
Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fat called triglycerides. Since MCT’s have a short chain length, the body can digest them easier and many health benefits are linked to the way our bodies process these fats. Like apple cider vinegar, MCT oil has been shown to increase the feeling of fullness. This is due to MCT oil increasing the release of two hormones: peptide YY and leptin. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4192077/
MCT oil may support weight loss by increasing fullness, but it will also help in the production of ketones. MCT’s are a type of fat that the liver can use to produce ketones, which in turn will help an individual stay in the fat-burning state of ketosis. https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/mct-oil-benefits#section1
Green Tea Extract can aid weight loss by increasing the number of calories your body burns through thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is the process by which your body burns calories to digest food and produce heat. Green tea has been shown to boost this process by making your body more effective at burning calories, which can lead to weight loss. Green Tea Extract is rich in potent antioxidants called catechins. The most important of these catechins is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism. Green tea contains bioactive substances like caffeine and EGCG, which can have powerful effects on metabolism. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17201629
