BLUF: Tastes amazing. Still not sure what it is for.
If it’s a hot and humid summer day and you just completed a 5k, a little sour peach candy flavored Muscletech 100% Keto Plus shaken over ice would be a refreshing treat that won’t break ketosis. Other than that I’m not sure what it is really for. Here’s what the company says about the product:
“The researchers at MuscleTech® have developed 100% Keto Plus with a macronutrient profile to support a low-carb ketogenic diet while fueling your body with aminos to help optimize your workouts. Together, the goBHB™ salts and aminos help keep low-carb and ketogenic dieters with their goals by delivering exogenous ketones and by helping the body produce ketones.”
As you can see by the ingredient list, the aminos in the product are not BCAAs, but according to Muscletech they are “clinically researched…to support the repair, growth and development of muscle tissue after training.” I’m not a lab technician or medical researcher, so I have no idea if these claims are true. I just have my doubts.
There are plenty of supplements that companies say are good for us, and a whole pile of research that sides with against the effects of supplements. If you take something and it seems to work for you, great. Just be careful what you are putting into your body.
