Although the use of exogenous ketones, such as KETO//OS, is quite safe, there are a few side effects that you may want to be aware of before you begin taking them.
We know that ketones themselves can be a little bit dehydrating. So often one can lose minerals while taking them. When our body is depleted of minerals, the impact of that could result in fatigue, headache, or constipation. So if that’s your experience, then make sure that you are drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. You may also want to consider replenishing your electrolytes with something like a bone broth or miso soup, just to help mitigate that effect.
Often times, people will experience digestive upset. This is due to the ketones, or medium chain triglyceride (MCT) fats that you’ll see in the KETO//OS 2.1 and KETO//KREME supplements. These are the healthy fats that are derived from coconut oil. Those new to the ketone and MCT fats may experience the side effects because the body hasn’t used them before, and isn’t quite sure how to digest them effectively.
If you are suffering from constipation or diarrhea, reduce your ketone dose by half, and increase your water consumption. As the symptoms begin to subside you can slowly move up to the full dosage.
Do you have a history of kidney stones? Learn what you can do to prevent kidney stones from developing while taking KETO//OS. Also, find out what to do if you want to take ketones while on medication.
While there can be mild side effects in taking ketones, they are very rare. Everyone from children to adults can safely enjoy the benefits of exogenous ketones.
