What's the Deal With Our Keto Shake Oil?

Now that you're a part of the #LCHF family, you've most likely been inundated with an endless feed of bullet proof coffee, coconut oil hacks, avocado memes and overall, just a lot of bacon. 

The love for fat in the keto community is real and we all know why- it increases energy, promotes better brain function and has an overwhelming success with weight loss. But like any diet, it can be hard to know for sure that you're getting enough nutrition and on keto, the correct ratio of healthy fats. 

Our Keto Shake Oil is designed with optimum ketogenic nutrition in mind. It's packed with the body's preferred amounts of omega-3s to omega-6s, from premium sources such as MCT, Coconut, Olive and Flax Oil. Beyond a great balance of omega-3 and omega-6, our Keto Shake Oil also contains the body's preferred ratio of saturated and unsaturated fat. Regardless of what you eat, the body stores a remarkably consistent ratio of saturated, monounsaturated and poly unsaturated. Phinney and Volek have argued, we think convincingly, that the body wouldn't consistently store the same ratio of fats unless that's what it most wanted to consume during periods of calorie shortages (i.e. Weight loss).

Combined with each Ketolent shake, your body will get into nutritional ketosis and satisfy your body's cravings without having to do any math.The combination of our fast digesting, refined MCT oil (4g per serving) with our slow digesting coconut oil, you'll get a balanced amount of ketones over a longer period of time than just MCT oil alone which means more energy for a longer period of time! Plus, unlike many sources of omega-3, our blend is a delicious addition to our keto shakes or as an added fat in your coffee or smoothies-no fishy flavors included.

The body prefers a 1:1 ratio of omega-3s and omega-6s fatty acids. Omega-3 acts as an anti-inflammatory, commonly found in fish and nut oils and omega-6 is an inflammatory essential fatty acid, derived from nut and seed oils. Since they're essential fatty acids, our bodies can't produce them so they must be obtained through our diet.

The current U.S. food system contains a highly disproportionate amount of omega-6 due to the overuse of soybean and vegetable oil in packaged and prepared foods. Additionally, the consumption of omega-3 is at an all time low. While our bodies do require inflammation to fight off infection and injury, the average American is consuming a ratio of 1:12 and this imbalance has been linked to an increase in incidences of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

A 1:1 ratio of these essential fatty acids is ideal but based on studies done on non-industrialized, hunter-gatherer like populations, our bodies can still operate efficiently anywhere between a 1:4 or 4:1 ratio of omega-6: omega-3. These populations consistently eat meat, fish and plants and as a result, have very low incidences of chronic diseases. 

Ketolent and regular consumption of our shake oil is the perfect option for anyone who dreads weekly meal prep, often leaves the house without breakfast or just wants a simple and easy way to get complete keto nutrition! You'll get your body on track to reaching its #fatgoals and over time you'll actually start to crave healthy foods and they'll even taste better too! And most importantly, achieving this fatty balance can help fight risk of heart disease, mitigate diabetic symptoms, decrease inflammation through out your body and help you to live a healthier and happier life!
