The other part of these ketone salts beta hydroxybutyrate, is a ketone. When levels of beta hydroxybutyrate are high enough in the body, the body is considered to be in ketosis.

This releases more ketones which can be used by the brain and muscles as a source of energy. Ketosis has been linked quite strongly with weight loss because of increased fat breakdown.

Our Nutricost Ketone Salts Review – Conclusion

The ingredients in Nutricost Ketone Salts as well as the dosage contained in each serving is quite well considered and does support the manufacturer’s claim about weight loss. The problem with this manufacturer is that they are not entirely transparent and clear about their guarantee. By not telling the customer how long the guarantee is valid for, they run the risk that the customer exceeds the time limit and doesn’t get their money back. This means that customers are not as protected as they think they are when they buy the supplement. We have observed manufacturers with much clearer guarantees and believe customers should look at these instead.
