In this review we will be looking at a new supplement that could redefine diet, nutrition and human performance called Prüvit™. I will try to address what this supplement is all about so you can make an informed decision if this product is right for you and if it can help you “do more, be more and achieve more”.
Before I get into the details, I want to be clear… this is NOT a “miracle” supplement that will make you lose weight without having to do any work. Pruvit’s Keto OS, or Keto Operation System, is the first natural consumer product to provide elevated blood ketone levels to the body without having to follow a “Ketogenic Diet”. What does that even mean? Well, let’s discuss…
Prüvit is not a product line. It’s not a program. It’s more than a company. Prüvit is a movement that is redefining human performance and moving past the status quo. We’ve set out to Prüvit in the spirit of ambition. PruvitNow.com
What is Pruvit Keto OS?

The Science Behind Pruvit
Keto//OS is ketone supplementation that gives someone the benefits of ketosis without having to be in nutritional ketosis. It is also a tool for people that want to follow a Keto lifestyle by reducing symptoms of the Keto flu and accelerating the use of ketones as energy, thus assisting to be Keto-adaptive more efficiently and effectively.
KETO//OS is a proprietary, “first of its kind” Exogenous ketone delivery drink. Rarely does a nutritional based product come along that has the ability to make a measurable and substantial impact on health and wellness. Prüvit’s KETO//OS (Ketone Operating System) is a revolutionary drink mix that is based on a proprietary ketone energy technology that delivers advanced macro nutritionals and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, energy and longevity. Ketones are a high energy product of fat oxidation that deliver a more efficient and higher energy yield than glucose which makes them the ideal fuel for powering the human body. Ketones are traditionally only produced during times of prolonged fasting and therefore have been limited in their availability as an alternative energy source.
KETO//OS contains a specifically engineered ratio of proprietary ketone mineral salts that provide a high-energy fuel compound without having to incorporate an energy-restricted diet. KETO//OS contains a perfect ratio of ketones for optimal protein synthesis and a high fiber based MCT formulation for sustained nutrient energy and digestive health and cognition. KETO//OS assists in improving the pattern of LDL Cholesterol and increases levels of HDL (good cholesterol). KETO//OS will make you feel more energetic, more focused, more fit and healthier than you ever have. It provides an exceptional nutritional foundation to help you lose weight, feel great and perform your very best.
Pruvit was formulated by Dr. Jacob Wilson, who is one of the fitness and bodybuilding industry’s leading experts when it comes to nutrition and supplementation. It is Exogenous Ketones and if you know anything about Ketones there are numerous benefits and until now you could only get them endogenous, which means produced by the body through breakdown of fatty acids only done by being on a Keto diet. Now that has changed. With Pruvit Keto OS you don’t have to be on a ketogenic diet in order to use it at all!
What are the Benefits of Ketones?
- Freedom from hypoglycemia, food fixations and sugar cravings. This is by far the best benefit in my opinion. Having control over your eating habits is very empowering.
- Lack of hunger: Ketone bodies dampen the appetite, and fat is very satisfying. You’ll notice at times, you may forget to eat. You may find this is the most amazing part, especially if you struggle with food addiction issues.
- Lower blood pressure: Low carb diets are very effective at reducing blood pressure. If you are taking any blood pressure medications, be aware that you might start feeling dizzy from too much medication while on a ketogenic diet plan. You may be able to reduce your BP meds (talk to your doctor first).
- Drop in Cholesterol: Cholesterol is made from excess glucose in the diet. As you eat less sugar creating foods, you do less damage to your arterial system and inflammation drops. Your cholesterol will drop as your body has less glucose from which to make it, and less need for repairing the damages of inflammatory chemicals.
- Increase in HDL Cholesterol (the more saturated fat you eat, the higher it will go.) This is actually a good thing, because it improves the ratio of HDL/LDL. Higher HDL levels (above 39 mg/dL) indicate a healthier heart.
- A drop in triglycerides: carbohydrate consumption is closely tied to triglyceride levels, and one of most well known ketogenic diet benefits. The less carbohydrate you eat, the lower your triglycerides readings will go. The ratio of triglycerides to HDL (expressed Triglyceride/HDL) is the best predictor of heart attack risk and is one of blood test results to which you should really pay attention. The closer this ratio is to 1:1, the healthier you are. See this paper.
- Drop in fasting blood sugar and fasting insulin levels: less sugar coming in, less sugar driving up blood sugar and insulin levels.
- Your levels of C Reactive Protein (CRP) and HbA1c proteins will decrease. These are both markers of inflammation and heart disease risk.
- More energy. You’ll be amazed at how much energy you have. Any chronic fatigue symptoms should get better. If you are taking a statin (a cholesterol lowering drug) see my statins page on my other website. Statins compromise cellular mitochondria which results in fatigue and muscle pain.
- Decrease in stiffness and joint pain. This is one of the best side effects of following a ketogenic diet plan. The diet eliminates grain based foods from your diet, and they, in my opinion are the biggest cause of chronic illness and pain, especially muscle stiffness and joint pain. As I often say, no grain, no pain.
- Clearer thinking. The “fogginess” that accompanies a high carb diet will disappear. My theory on this is that the brain is over 60% fat by weight, and the more fat you eat, the better it can maintain itself and work to its full capacity. Others more scientifically inclined might talk about essential fatty acids and neurotransmitter function.
- Changes in your sleep patterns and an improvement in sleep apnea symptoms. I believe that sleep apnea is tied to grain consumption, the heartburn it causes, and reactive hypoglycemia from a high carb diet. I used to have apnea, but once I cut grains out of my diet and permanently reduced my carb intake, I no longer have it, just as I no longer get heartburn or hypoglycemia. Another sleep benefit of eating less carbs is that those urges to take a late afternoon nap will go away. Not falling asleep at your desk every afternoon is one of the best ketogenic diet benefits.
- Weight loss: sticking to a ketogenic diet plan can be very effective for normalizing your weight. However, if you have very high fasting insulin (and high insulin resistance) you may need to add a high intensity exercise program like Doug McGuff’s Body by Science: A Research Based Program to Get the Results You Want in 12 Minutes a Week. High intensity training has the effect of increasing the insulin sensitivity of your muscles, thereby decreasing your fasting insulin and help you lose weight.
- Heartburn relief: if you suffer from GERD or other heartburn issues, the symptoms should lessen or disappear. Heartburn, I believe, is a direct result of eating grain based foods, sugar and for some people, nightshade vegetables such as tomatoes. I also believe it is tied to problems with sleep apnea, as described above in the sleep section.
- Gum disease and tooth decay: sugar changes the pH of your mouth and contributes to tooth decay. Three months into a ketogenic diet, any gum disease you might have will decrease or disappear.
- Digestion and gut health get better. You will see a decrease in stomach pain, bloating, gas etc.. These are all associated with grain and sugar consumption.
- Mood stabilization. Ketone bodies have been shown to be beneficial in stabilizing neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine which result in better mood control.

How Do You Take Pruvit Keto OS?
Dissolve 1 heaping scoop or OTG pack in 12-16oz. of cold water and shake/stir vigorously. Can be taken with or without food.
Therapeutic dose = 1 daily serving
Optimal performance = 2 servings AM/PM
Start using KETO//OS gradually. Depending on an individual’s ability to metabolize fat, start with one half serving up to one serving and increase slowly over several weeks. Too much KETO//OS, especially on an empty stomach, can result in loose stool or a stomach ache. You can avoid these problems by slowly increasing your daily consumption over a few weeks to build up to higher dosages. KETO//OS consumption will increase production of fat enzymes. Because most people are not efficient fat metabolizers their body needs to start optimizing the ability to metabolize and synthesize fat. As a result you will see increased fat loss and lower your total body fat percentage. If upset stomach occurs, lower the dosage for several days and gradually increase it over a few weeks as fat metabolization efficiency increases.
Consumption of KETO//OS before exercise can result in significant decreases in oxygen demand and increases in performance. We recommend 30 minutes before a workout. Note: Pre-workout use is recommended after building up to a full dose. The best way to maximize energy, appetite control and sustain energy is to take KETO//OS first thing in morning. To maximize benefits, build up to 1 serving 3 times daily – morning, afternoon and early evening. May be used with carbohydrate supplements if desired or by itself as a non-carb, highly efficient energy source.
As with any new supplement, consult with your physician before using. If you are using any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, are unaware of your current medical condition, have any pre-existing medical condition(s), have hypersensitivity to salt or have any risk of kidney stones, consult with your physician before using this product. Build up to a full serving slowly to avoid gastro-intestinal discomfort.
No refrigeration required. Keep at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
MCT Powder, Beta Hydroxybutyrate, Natural Flavor, Malic Acid, Stevia and Caffeine. This product is Gluten Free.
My Final Thoughts On Pruvit
Pruvit’s products are good but when compared to other ketone supplements they are extremely over priced. If you are interested in building an MLM business this could be a great opportunity.
