A relatively new entrant, Keto-Drive is an exogenous ketone supplement from supplement brand, Zhou Nutrition.
Among dozens of health and wellbeing supplements, Zhou Nutrition has two keto related products – Keto-Drive in an Orange Mango flavour and MCT Oil powder.
Zhou Nutrition prides itself on the taste of Keto-Drive, claiming they’ve finally formulated a ketone drink that tastes good. We would agree that the Orange Mango flavour is pleasant, which is consistent with other reviews.
Keto-Drive is transparent about how much BHB it contains, sitting at 11.7grams per serve.
Unlike other ketone supplements, Keto-Drive has no carbs, no caffeine and no sugar.
It’s where a number of supplements fail in our books, and that’s price. A tub of Keto-Drive which has 16 servings will cost you around $108AUD – that’s $6.75 a serve.
Plus, the formula does not contain MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), which means you would need to purchase these separately. With this included (to be comparable to other products on the market), you would be looking at around $7.75 a serve.
While we didn’t experience this, a number of reviewers have complained about getting a headache almost immediately after taking, as well as a body “crash”.
Zhou Nutrition suggests stirring one level scoop into around 8oz of cold water. They say it can be consumed between meals, on an empty stomach, before workouts or whenever increased physical and mental performance is desired.
They suggest no more than three servings per day.
Keto-Drive is among the most expensive on the market, priced at around $7.75 per serve.
