I’m Dr. Regina Marshall, doctor of natural Medicine.
In this article, I’m going to be talking about the top eight keto supplements you may consider taking. And let me say too, if you’re on a keto diet, supplements can really benefit you.
Some of these supplements can help you get into ketosis faster, some can help with your energy levels, some can help with stress hormones, so there are some big benefits of taking some of these supplements and natural remedies.
Number one supplement you may consider taking if you’re on a keto diet as an Exogenous Ketone supplement. Biggest benefit there is, if you want to get into ketosis faster this is where this is the best supplement for you to take.
So, if you wanted to get into ketosis faster exogenous ketones give your body more ketones to burn for fuel it can actually support your body getting into ketosis faster.
Number two supplement you should consider taking is collagen or a keto collagen or a multi collagen supplement. You know, collagen makes up 30% of the total protein your body most people are getting zero collagen on a daily basis. And so, this is a collagen that your body is going to use for regenerating and creating new and healthy tissues; everything from your ligaments, and tendons, to your gut lining, to your skin, hair, and nails you can notice big benefits on collagen. The collagen isn’t just for the keto diet it’s for everybody everywhere, but especially on a keto diet you want to make sure you’re getting plenty of collagen.
So, look out for a multi collagen supplement, has multiple types of collagen, or a keto collagen supplement. Again, this is really going to help your body if you’re looking to really just heal your body generally speaking.
Medium Chain Triglyceride Oil
Number 3 supplement you should consider on a keto diet is MCT oil that stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride oil. Now, of all the fats your body loves to burn for fuel, MCT oil which is found in coconut oil, it’s your favorite fat your body loves to burn for fuel.
The reason is it sort of bypasses certain organs like your liver and your body just goes right to burning it as fuel. So, get MCT oil adding a simple teaspoon or tablespoon to a morning smoothie or just doing it straight is a great way to support your by on a keto diet and get some really healthy fats there too.
The brand you take doesn’t matter all that much. I have tried various brands over the years and always come back
to the original, my first and my favorite which is the very popular BULLET PROOF MTC OIL.
If you have never taken MTC OIL then prepare for mind
fog to disappear after your first dose. This really is an amazing product that I cannot recommend highly enough, and wonderful for your Keto Diet.
Number four supplement you may consider if you’re going keto as a keto protein supplement. Now, again a lot of people take protein powders; everything from whey protein, to rice protein, to pea protein; those proteins I believe pale in comparison to the benefits of a keto protein supplement.
Keto protein not only has protein but it’s also going to have lots of healthy fats in there as a supplement, and remember when you’re consuming keto friendly meals you always want to be getting healthy fat along with some good quality protein, but more fat typically. So, when you’re buying a protein powder make sure it’s a keto protein or keto friendly protein.
Number five supplement you should consider on a keto diet our digestive enzymes are supplements in general that support digestion. Now you’re going to be consuming more fat on a keto diet and there’s an enzyme called lipase which actually helps your body better break down fat.
So, you can look for a keto enzyme supplement that can really help with fat digestion, or another alternative is digestive bitters. If you actually take in the ancient sort of a formula of digestive bitters, when your body tastes something bitter it actually causes your liver to produce bile which actually helps you better break down and digest fats. And so, maybe something you didn’t know there but bitters help you better digest fat.
Number six are probiotics again similar to collagen almost everybody on the planet should be taking a probiotic supplement. So, make sure you’re getting your probiotics; you can look for a keto friendly probiotic or an SPO probiotic.
Now, soil-based probiotics are the most powerful in the world that everybody should be getting on a regular, basis but probiotics can line your gut and really help support your immune system, they support digestion, here’s the big thing; probiotics support nutrient absorption. When you’re on a keto diet you want to absorb as many vitamins and minerals and nutrients as possible probiotics will help you do just that.
Matcha Green Tea
Number seven supplement you should consider on a keto diet is matcha green tea. Now Matcha is famed in Japan in areas of Asia for supporting longevity, anti-aging and natural energy support.
So, again look for a keto Matcha or a ceremonial Matcha Green tea. Matcha contains an antioxidant called EGCG which stands for Apical Active Catechin which basically is one of those powerful antioxidants ever that supports age anti-aging and energy.
Keeping Cortisol and Stress Hormone levels low
Last but not least number eight one of the big things that you can really benefit from on a keto diet is keeping your cortisol and stress hormone levels as low as possible. In order to do that, or the best supplement for doing that is taking an adaptogen supplement like Ashwagandha.
Now, Ashwagandha is known for supporting thyroid health as well it’s just general hormones, but Ashwagandha is a great herbal supplement to take that’s going to help lower Cortisol and help you on a keto diet. There’s lots of other good adaptogens like Reishi mushroom, and Rhodiola Rosea that can also benefit you, but Ashwagandha is probably my favorite.
And so, remember I just covered eight keto supplements here, you don’t have to take all of them but maybe pick out between one and four that you really think can benefit and support your body as you’re going on. #1 on my list would
probably be MTC Oil.
The great news is most of these are beneficial whether you’re on the keto diet or not, but especially if you’re going keto, make sure to take some of these supplements to help you be your absolute best and to get your body even faster into your body’s fat-burning zone.
