    "Ketones don't judge you base on what you eat. They're inside of your body, and science shows that they work on our brain and they get rapidly taken up and utilized".  ~Dr. Ryan Lowery

KETO CONVERSATIONS are chances to gain valuable information from the experts in the Prüvit community. In this episode, Keto Mom, Stephanie Mielke talks with Dr. Ryan Lowery about the KETO UP product and the benefits of KETONES.

STEPHANIE: Hey everybody! My name is Stephanie, and we've got Dr. Ryan Lowery here today. We are so excited to help educate you on our KETO UP product. I'm tuning in from Minnesota, so as you're tuning in, where are you tuning in from?

We're going to talk all about this incredible new can called KETO UP. We also have some other flavors, but we are going to focus on this KETO UP product and what it's all about.

And we've got the best person to share about why he loves it, what it is, how it works in your body, and how it works together with KETO NAT. We also did a live interview with Dr. Ryan Lowery last week where we talked about KETO NAT, which is our number one product. Drinking the product helps put you in ketosis in under an hour.

I like to tell people that it's my "Mom Fuel". I have four daughters, and it gives me energy, focus, appetite, control, and everything that I need throughout my day. So I'm super excited to share with you what product goes along with my Keto Nat.

Dr. Ryan? Why don't you tell us who you are, and then explain a little bit about what this KETO UP is, and how it works?

DR. RYAN: Yeah, absolutely! I'm super honored to be here again. Thanks for having me guys. So, a little background, we've been studying exogenous ketones for nearly almost a decade now.

𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗲'𝘃𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗱𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗸𝗲𝘁𝗼𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝗱𝗶𝗲𝘁 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝗯𝗲𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁.
We quickly realized that the benefits of the ketogenic diet were mainly derived from this process or these things known as ketones, or ketosis.

Fortunately, we now have a company (Prüvit) that allows us to be able to take things like KETO UP and deliver these ketones to our bodies. This product helps us get better brain fuel, and better fuel for all different areas like our muscles, and our heart tissue. It also helps in decreasing our hunger. Who wants to have a decrease in hunger? I definitely do.

So all of these amazing benefits in the KETO UP are just another tool that we have in our arsenal. The KETO UP actually delivers a different form of ketones, would you like me to go into that a little bit?

STEPHANIE: Yes! But before you do, know a lot of people have asked about this new can I'm holding up. We've got a brand new flavor that just launched, and we've got an incredible sale going on. Dr. Ryan's going to teach you about what KETO UP is, and then you can get back to the person that invited you here so you can get your new pink can. So yes, you can now proceed at it, Dr. Ryan...

DR. RYAN: Yeah! I love it! And we've been working hard on this. I know for some of you that have been in the community for a while, you've probably seen the KETO UP before and you're like, "Where did it go?" "What happened?". The company as a whole has been doing a lot of things to make sure we're able to produce it even better, and more cost-effectively, which is super exciting.

One of the things that we have inside the KETO UP, that kind of pairs extremely well with our KETO NAT, is this free BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) technology. What does that mean? We talked about, what makes our ketones different from any other exogenous ketones that exist on the market.

Our ketone has the right key, or it's the right form that our body can actually take up and utilize. And on top of that, one of the things I actually didn't mention is we've done a lot of research on the different levels of the salts. So with the Keto NAT, the BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) is bound together with electrolytes such as sodium, magnesium, or calcium. And that's why it's able to be delivered in powder form.

𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗞𝗘𝗧𝗢 𝗨𝗣, 𝘄𝗲'𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗛𝗕 (𝗯𝗲𝘁𝗮-𝗵𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼𝘅𝘆𝗯𝘂𝘁𝘆𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲) 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝗯𝗶𝗼𝗮𝘃𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲, 𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺.

It's now more of a liquid form, and that's why we're able to deliver it in this kind of lifestyle drink. So when we're talking about KETO NAT, what we see is based on the ratio that we have and the bioavailable form of BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate). You can get this increase and that sustained over a long period of time.

Whereas KETO UP is like a quick hit, and it's more of a lifestyle drink. You sip on it and you don't need to chug it down in five minutes. It's more of a sipper, you can sip on this probably for the next hour. You can get little doses of a very rapidly absorbing form of BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) on top of the other ingredients that are in there, to really stimulate your brain. So you can use the KETO UP as more of a lifestyle drink, paired with our Keto Nat.

STEPHANIE: So good! I love it! So if you're already drinking the KETO UP, what is your favorite flavor? I have the brand new KETO-UP Kiwi melon. It's absolutely amazing, it tastes like kiwi and melon. It's delicious! This is also how I use the product, Dr. Ryan, it's a lifestyle drink. If I go to one of my girls' volleyball games, our friend's softball games, or a matinee movie, walk around the mall, or just do different things with our girls, I'll take it with me.

It looks really pretty when I'm carrying it around, and it helps me share the ketone conversation. I love it because I'm not grabbing something else that's full of sugar. I like to sip on things when I'm out and about, like when I'm shopping, watching movies, or at the softball games.

𝗜 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗜 𝗴𝗼 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗼 𝗸𝗲𝗲𝗽𝘀 𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸.

So some people are asking, "I'm going to a party and I don't want to be drinking all of the sugar, what can I take with me?". This works great for that! Some people are also asking about the freestyle ketone. Dr. Ryan, do you want to explain that a little bit?

DR. RYAN: Yeah, and you bring up a really great point. If we're being honest, when walking around, some people will grab some type of energy drink, or hit up Starbucks and grab the nice-looking pink drink that's loaded with sugar, and is terrible for you. But now, we actually have something that has no sugar in it, and it's really good for you too. Something that's actually going to feed your brain and not decay it.

And so when we talk about the free cell technology, it's allowing this BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) to rapidly be taken up. It actually starts to be taken up as soon as it hits your tongue. There are receptors underneath your tongue that respond to this kind of free acid form of BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) for it to rapidly be taken up. This is why you probably don't need to chug it down very quickly.

It's something that's more of a sipper. You can sip it slowly and enjoy it when you're at the kid's volleyball game, or you're out and about doing your thing. You're going to get these mini doses of ketones to your brain, which is where it's rapidly taken up and utilized. So again, the KETO UPs are not a replacement for the KETO NAT, but it's a different delivery form that actually works very well.

𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁!

In the morning, I like to get the salts and the electrolyte to get my day started. So I use this as a sipper throughout my day, whether I'm recording videos, out and about at the office, or walking around town. And then I might even have another KETO NAT later on in the day. Maybe a decaffeinated version, kind of heading into the night. So that's my way of utilizing it throughout the day.

STEPHANIE: That's exactly what I do as well! My kids try to steal it from me, but I tell them they cannot because it is mine. But I agree! I drink my ketones in the morning, and I usually drink the Keto Up in the afternoon or a caffeine-free Keto Nat later in the day. So Dr. Ryan, what's your favorite flavor? Do you have one?

DR. RYAN: I do! Right now, I'm drinking the older Unicorn Slam. I love that, but there are actually some new ones. One of which, you just mentioned, and it's amazing. And as I said earlier, we are investing a lot into improving its efficiency of it. But we're also investing a lot to understand what people like, flavor-wise, and making it taste very good. Because it's very hard to make ketones taste good. That might be hard to believe because all the flavors taste amazing. But it's a really hard process to do that, and I always love the innovation we have with brand new flavors tasting even better.

STEPHANIE: Yeah! So real quick, for those who did not watch our video last week, we talked all about our KETO NAT. Make sure you go back and you can scroll through the page to check it out. Make sure you also get back to the person that invited you here and ask them about ketones in general.

Here are the biggest questions that come up with any of our products...

  • "Do I have to be on a keto diet?"

  • "Will it benefit me in any way shape or form if I'm just low carb or just my version of healthy?"...

DR. RYAN: Yeah, absolutely it will help you! You do not need to be on a ketogenic diet in order to see the benefits. Being low carb or more conscious of your nutrition will absolutely amplify the results. And you will still get the tremendous benefits, even if you're not on a ketogenic or low carbohydrate diet.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗸𝗲𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝗱𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝗷𝘂𝗱𝗴𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝗮𝘁.

They're inside of your body, and science shows that they work on our brain and they get rapidly taken up and utilized. Whether you're on a diet, whatever your diet is, it's rapidly getting taken up and utilized by your brain. And it's also rapidly getting taken up by your heart tissue and your muscle tissue. The most important thing that I like to talk about is the benefits for the brain, but we often forget that most people around us are struggling with satiety or a hunger problem.

Most people are reaching for snacks, and they don't realize how much they eat because they're chronic snackers. Very few people are eating two or three whole meals, and that's all they eat throughout the day. Well, guess what? This is a great tool to provide energy for your brain while helping you minimize your snacking. Ketones work on lowering your hunger levels and increasing how full you feel. So that way, you don't go and grab that bag of M&M's or that snack in the drawer. It helps you with that.

STEPHANIE: I love that! I also share that same information as I'm coaching people on how to eat better, and not necessarily keto. I love that you talk about being carb conscious because a majority of people are simply overeating. They're snacking when they don't need to. And so this product legitimately turns on my brain, and it helps me have the energy to stay focused throughout my day. I truly feel like it helps me not overeat.

If we can just simply work on our water intake, drink ketones, be aware of our food, stop snacking so much, and stop eating out of emotion or habit. This product will help you immensely feel better and get those results that you're wanting. It's a tool to help you not go for the candy, the Oreos, or the chips. It's going to help you get there further faster.

DR. RYAN: Exactly! I like to say ketones help put appetite back in your control, right? Everyone wants to be in control. Ketones are tools to help all of us put our appetites back in our control.

STEPHANIE: I love that! So we also have a fun sale or a promo going on. And we now have our own facility where we make our KETO NAT. It's an incredible system and facility with incredibly passionate people that are making and putting this product together for us.

So Dr. Ryan, why are we able to lower the price, and what do we currently have now that helps us distribute this product faster?

DR. RYAN: This is incredible because if you turn on the news, everything's just skyrocketing and prices are going up and up. But we're kind of investing to do the opposite, and we're working on making our products more cost-effective. So that more people can get this technology in their hands.

𝗪𝗲'𝘃𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗵𝘂𝗴𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝘃𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘆.

One of the biggest challenges over the last two years was the supply chain issues. Most people probably didn't even notice it, but all throughout the world, it's one of the biggest problems that people face. And so we said, "You know what, we're not going to let that happen, and we're going to bring everything in house". And so we made this huge investment to build this amazing, beautiful facility that can now produce these cans for us in our own house. And it's allowing us to be more cost-effective, and really be able to allow everyone to get their hands on this technology.

STEPHANIE: And we won't have to wait in line for anybody else. It's so exciting! I actually got to go down there with my husband when we went down to Texas earlier this year. We got to see the facility, see the new machines that our company Pruvit invested in so that they can lower the price. That way more people can drink it because it's so incredible. I love that we're always innovating. I love that we love to help educate and just do things the best that we can to help more people feel better.

DR. RYAN: I love that! And we're going to always continue to innovate and find new ways to deliver ketones. But now we're able to do it in a whole other way, at scale with our KETO UP. So I'm super excited about it.

STEPHANIE: I love that! Thank you very much, Dr. Ryan. Is there anything else you want to say about the KETO UP before we tell people to go grab their own cans?

DR. RYAN: No, I'm super excited. And please continue to share and use this as a lifestyle drink. I think that the most important thing is it's not a replacement. It's not something that you can decide on either KETO NAT or KETO UP. They're both different technologies together. We'd like to use the word synergistic, meaning one plus one is five. You're might say, no way! But that's what synergy is. One plus one is five, meaning both of them are far greater than either one of them on there.

STEPHANIE: Well, we truly appreciate you, Dr. Ryan! Thank you very much.

I love all of them, they're so great. Share this with your friends, and get back to the person that invited you. We do have more education, so if you want to see more videos from Dr. Ryan, Dr. Jacob, and some other thought leaders in this space, make sure you download our free app called PRUVIT TV. You can get a ton of education about our products, ketones, how they work, and what they do for your body.

I look forward to seeing you all later. Thank you, Dr. Ryan! I appreciate you. Bye, everybody!
