Exogenous Ketones

Therapeutic exogenous ketones or the white gold of the 21st century.

Until 10 years ago, exogenous ketones and their mode of action were still largely unknown. We now know that ketones have an important positive influence on our body in many areas.

Just a few years ago, exogenous ketones were reserved for the elite troops of the American military. Now it is also available to the general public.

What are Ketones?

Alongside glucose, ketones are another source of energy for your body. However, ketones "burn" much more cleanly than glucose - comparable to a diesel vehicle to an electric vehicle.

If you now provide your cells with this clean source of energy, so many positive effects occur in your body, which even reinforce each other positively. This is precisely why therapeutic exogenous ketones are so versatile and successful.

empine works together with the market leader Prüvit. Prüvit's ketones are marketed under the protected brand name KETO//OS NAT®. They are the only exogenous ketones in the world that are produced by the natural fermentation of plant extracts. It is therefore a 100% natural energy source that is vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. Incidentally, the process is protected by over 25 patents worldwide. This is precisely why there is no serious alternative.

The products from Prüvit: KETO//OS NAT®

The KETO//OS NAT® product line is the centerpiece of the Prüvit portfolio. The name stands for Ketone Operating System Natural. The products offer various properties and benefits that make them unique in the world of exogenous ketones:

  1. Patented ketone technology: Prüvit KETO//OS NAT® uses a patented form of exogenous ketones known as ketone salts. This technology allows the body to enter a state of ketosis faster and more efficiently, which is normally achieved through a strict diet.

  2. Natural ingredients: As the name suggests, Prüvit attaches great importance to natural ingredients. Its products contain no artificial colors or flavors and are free from gluten and other allergens.

  3. Increased bioavailability: The ketones in KETO//OS NAT® are designed to be easily absorbed and utilized by the body, resulting in a more effective ketosis experience.

  4. Variety of flavors: As we all know, there's no accounting for taste. That's why Prüvit offers its products in a variety of flavors. So there is something for everyone.


The advantages

Ketones are another source of energy for your body alongside glucose. However, ketones “burn” much more cleanly than glucose - comparable to a diesel vehicle to an electric vehicle.

When you provide your cells with this clean energy source, many positive effects occur in your body, which even reinforce each other positively. This is precisely why therapeutic exogenous ketones are so versatile and successful.

Try it out! You'll be amazed...

Higher Energy Level

Ketone bodies are a primary energy source that can be used quickly by the body. Their energy density is even higher than that of glucose. This gives your body immediate access to more energy. The biggest advantage over all other snacks or energy drinks: completely without carbohydrates. This results in a constant supply of energy, free from the usual fluctuations caused by glucose metabolism.

Sustainable Weight Loss

Exogenous ketones support weight management while protecting muscles by putting the body into a state of ketosis, which promotes fat metabolism. In addition, ketones reduce the feeling of hunger by increasing satiety and curbing appetite. This can particularly help people who have difficulty controlling their calorie intake.

Muscle Build-Up

Ketones provide a steady source of energy that is beneficial during long and intense workouts. This sustained energy supply allows athletes to intensify their training and extend the duration of their workout. In addition, exogenous ketones can improve the recovery phase after training. By reducing inflammatory reactions, they also support regeneration.

Better Sleep

Improving the quality of sleep is another benefit of exogenous ketones. By stabilizing blood sugar levels and reducing energy fluctuations, they can contribute to a calmer and more restful sleep. Users of exogenous ketones often report a reduction in the time it takes to fall asleep, a reduction in night-time awakenings and a generally deeper sleep

Stress Resistance

Exogenous ketones can also help to improve stress resistance. By stabilizing energy metabolism and reducing dependence on glucose fluctuations, the body can respond more effectively to stressful situations. Users often report a more balanced emotional state and an increased ability to deal with stressful situations.

Mental Clarity

The enhancement of mental performance through exogenous ketones is a particularly interesting aspect. They can improve cognitive clarity, concentration and general brain function. Ketones serve as an efficient source of energy for the brain and can boost mental performance, especially in situations that require high levels of concentration and mental stamina.

Therapeutic Support

Exogenous ketones support the treatment of metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and obesity by stabilizing blood sugar levels and stimulating fat burning.

They are effective in treating neurological and psychological conditions such as Alzheimer's, dementia, and depression, as well as multiple sclerosis, where they have anti-inflammatory effects.

In cancer therapy, they impair the metabolism of cancer cells.

For inflammatory and immunological conditions, including silent inflammation and post-COVID syndrome, they reduce inflammation and improve energy supply.

They also help in the treatment of eating disorders such as anorexia and are useful in alleviating sleep disorders.

Difference to other products

KETO//OS NAT® is bio-identical and contains only R-BHB ketones. Most (often cheaper) products on the market contain so-called racemates, i.e. equal parts R-BHB and L-BHB. This second, levorotatory isomer cannot be metabolized by the human body. However, it also blocks the receptors, which greatly reduces the effect of the good R-BHB ketones. Overall, racemates of L-BHB and R-BHB are virtually ineffective. For a long time, these statements were controversial, but they have now been scientifically proven.

The production of KETO//OS NAT® is purely plant-based and dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. This means that Prüvit products are also generally very well tolerated by allergy sufferers. Unlike most other products, Prüvit's KETO//OS NAT® are also free from various undesirable chemical additives.

KETO//OS NAT® does not contain any sugar/carbohydrates. This is particularly important for supplementation during fasting and as part of a ketogenic diet. Most ketone products are completely unsuitable here because they contain almost all glucose in non-negligible quantities.

What exactly is included in the starter kit?



You get

✅ the genuine bioidentical R-BHB ketones for the first 7 days
✅ special electrolytes that improve the absorption and duration of action of the ketones
✅ an original ketone drinking bottle.

As the name suggests, the contents are designed to last for the first 7 days. It is important that you start slowly and then increase continuously. The starter kit contains two complementary products:

1. 5x packets of KETO//OS NAT
2. 5x packets of MITO//PLEX

Attention: The specific flavors generally differ from the picture and also vary from delivery to delivery.

Please only take half a packet for the first 4 days. The ketones start a detoxification process in your body. It is important not to overtax your body at this stage. On day 5, you then increase both to a whole packet and keep this up for days 6 and 7.

There are two different variants: with caffeine and without caffeine. Caffeine is generally good at the beginning because it gives your body the necessary activity to make optimum use of the ketones. Only the morning ration contains caffeine. The afternoon is always caffeine-free.

Many of my prospective customers want to jump straight in and buy 20 packets of ketones or more. This ultimately makes sense, because to experience the full effect of ketones, you need to drink them regularly over a longer period of time (3-6 months). If you want to do the same, you can find our recommendations here:

What are exogenous ketones and how do they promote health?

Exogenous ketones are dietary supplements that increase the body's natural ketone levels. They can therefore contribute to weight loss, improved cognitive functions and increased energy. Due to their metabolism-regulating and inflammation-reducing effect, Prüvit's exogenous ketones are used as an adjuvant therapy for various diseases.
How quickly do exogenous ketones work?
In general, the effect varies from patient to patient. However, some effects often appear very early on, such as more energy and greater mental clarity. Sustainable weight loss, metabolic changes and the reduction of silent inflammation, on the other hand, take considerably longer. Initial successes can be seen after around 3 months. Comprehensive therapy usually takes 6-12 months.
How should exogenous ketones be taken?

The ketones are supplied in the form of a powder. This is then dissolved in half a liter to a liter of water and drunk. It is important to take one or two rations a day at regular intervals.

Do exogenous ketones have side effects?
As it is not a drug, there are no side effects in the true sense of the word. Especially at the beginning of the intake, fatigue, acne or softer stools may occur due to the detoxification process.
For which diseases are exogenous ketones already being used today?
Science has now shown that ketone bodies trigger many positive processes in the body. This is why they can and are used in many different ways - usually as an adjunct. These include sleep disorders in particular,
obesity, type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, silent inflammation, depression, Alzheimer's disease and certain types of cancer.

How do doctors and alternative practitioners integrate exogenous ketones into treatment?

Healthcare professionals can use exogenous ketones as part of a holistic treatment plan. In many cases, the patient's already weakened body is strengthened in a healthy way. Often, lasting changes in the patient's behavior are also necessary, such as more exercise or a change in diet. Exogenous ketones can provide very good support here.

Do exogenous ketones require a prescription?
No. Exogenous ketones are freely available for sale, as they are not classified as a drug but as a dietary supplement.
As a doctor, pharmacist or alternative practitioner, do I have to have the ketones in stock?
No. Every patient can order the exogenous ketones themselves. You just send the patients a corresponding link.
