The “BHB salt” is simply a compound that consists of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), and the ketone body β-hydroxybutyrate. In supplements like Ketond these individual components are being held together by ionic bonds; however, when you consume the product, it is absorbed into the blood where it dissociates into free Na+, K+, and BHB since it is a water-based solution. Thus, consuming the product directly and immediately puts more ketones into your blood.
Ketones are naturally slightly acidic, so the combination of BHB with sodium acts as a bit of a buffer to this acidity. Ketones will also naturally act as a diuretic, so you lose salt, potassium calcium and magnesium, and it is generally encouraged to increase sodium intake with ketones. The addition of sodium to the product will replenish this salt loss.
There are 4 forms of BHB Salts – Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium and non-hydroscopic Potassium Salts.
Yes, ketones are safe. Ketones can naturally exist in the body, if your body is in a state of ketosis. Ketone supplements simply provides these ketones from an exogenous source, but they have the same beneficial impact. However, if you suffer from any medical conditions, it is always safe to consult your health care provider prior to starting any new nutritional supplement.

Ketond's original Advaced Ketone Blend was our #1 Rated Keto Supplement for the past 2 years because nothing was able to challenge it. It was stronger, tasted better, worked better than any other keto supplement on the market. We thought it was untouchable. So who on earth could dethrone the "Champ"? Only the newest keto supplement from Ketond - Ketond BioMAX.
It is our opinion that Ketond's "mantra" has always been "whatever Company XYZ does, we can do BETTER and CHEAPER". Not only that but they are totally transparent (ie no proprietary blends) so you know EXACTLY what you are buying. This is crucial when it comes to purchasing a premium keto supplement. 800mg of BHB in a pill?? It won't do anything. 6g of BHB in a drink mix? It might do something, but not much. 11.7g of BHB? That's the clinical dosage used in the weight loss studies and you can bet that you are going to see results.
Ketōnd BioMAX uses goBHB-D - the first of its kind all-natural ketone that is BIOLOGICALLY IDENTICAL to the ketones your body makes! D-BHB is the naturally occuring, endogenously (“inside the body”) generated isomer produced through human metabolism of acetoacetate in the ketogenic process. Once D-BHB enters the blood, it does not reconvert to acetoacetate, and is metabolized rapidly making it a more readily available bioenergetic fuel source for body and brain.
Not only is Ketōnd BioMAX the first to use goBHB-D BUT they have taken it a step further by including an effective blend of natural ingredients that further increase weight loss and appetite suppression. Ketōnd BioMAX is scientifically formulated to help you maximize weight loss and the other benefits of the keto diet without following a keto diet. When it comes to keto supplements Ketōnd continues to develop the most effective, premium products available.
The only brand that uses something similar to goBHB-D is Pruvit in their Keto OS//Max, NAT and Unleashed products. These products contain a proprietary blend containing R-BHB (which is the same thing as D-BHB). Though Pruvit's products are in a "Proprietary Blend" we will soon be receiving a third-party lab analysis that shows how much D-BHB they contain. We have "borrowed" this graph from Ketond.com showing how these D-BHB supplements compare.
Comparing the costs of Ketōnd BioMAX to competitors is pretty easy. Both Ketōnd BioMAX and Pruvit products come in 20 Serving 'To Go' stick packs. As of the writing of this review, there are no other keto supplements that contain D-BHB, so these are really your only options. What's great about all of these products is that they license the same patented ketone technology. The BHB all of these products is natural and biologically identical to the ketones produced in the human body. We "borrowed" another chart that shows an efficient cost breakdown of these products. Now, both companies frequently run specials and promotions, but we didn't take those into account. You will see in the chart below that You Will Pay 45% to 75% LESS for Ketōnd's Products When Compared to the Competition.
Ketōnd has continued to "WOW' us with consistantly improving their keto supplements while holding true to their commitment to offer their premium product at an incredible value. Currently Ketōnd BioMAX is available in 3 unique flavors - Caramel Macchiato, Tigers Blood (a delicious blend of watermelon, strawberry and cocont) and Aloha Punch (a blend of pineapple and blue raspberry). Ketōnd BioMAX is currently available for $79.95 for 20 servings which is about $3.99 per serving – which is close to half the price of the leading competitors. Just compare dosage, ingredient quality, serving size and serving cost and you will quickly realize why Ketōnd is still this year’s top rated keto supplement.

Pruvit Keto//OS (Ketone Operating System) MAX has come a long way since it was introduced. Last year, in 2018, Pruvit reformulated a lot of their products to include their new BHB blend called MAX BHB. MAX BHB is the bioidentical form of BHB called D-BHB. These are the "new generation" of BHB that are being used in the top-rated ketone supplements this year. In fact it is used in Ketond BioMAX which is this year's #1 rated keto supplement.
D-BHB is an amazing ingredient. When dosed properly, it hits you fast and gives you a great boost in energy and cognition. What we don't know is the amount of D-BHB used in Keto//OS Max. Everything is hidden in a proprietary blend. This is why it is ranked #4 on this years list. Well that and the price. Twenty servings of Max will set you back $130 / $6.50 per serving. If you are taking 2 servings per day, which Pruvit recommends for “optimal performance” a one month supply will cost you a whopping $390!! Read Full Review
Granite Supplements Intra-Keto is literally a brand new supplement, so although we haven’t had the opportunity to try it, we are very excited. Jon Meadows, the formulator of this products, has always put science and quality over making a quick buck off of some cheap supplement. What we can tell about Intra-Keto is that it is a blend of BCAAs/EAAs and goBHB, which are, in our opinion, the highest quality ketones available.
The main concern we have is that Intra-Keto only contains 4.6g of ketones / goBHB™ per serving. Intra-Keto retails for about $60 per 20 servings. Our leading ketone supplement contains 2.5x the amount of goBHB per serving as Intra-Keto.
Pruvit has launched some pretty unique products in the past year. One of them is Keto//OS NAT which they "claim" that its ketone salts are created through a "fermented process". Now I have spoked to a lot of companies that import and distribute BHB salts and NONE of them are familiar with "fermented BHB salts". In fact, I heard that they might have been tested to see if any live cultures existed. If these were fermented then live cultures would show up during an analysis. They found that NAT contained no live cultures. So, for me, the hunt for these elusive "fermented ketones" continues.
Apart from that this keto supplement contains an unspecified dosage of R-BBHB aka D-BHB. This is the bioidentical form of BHB, which are the same form that are NATurally produced by the body. These are the "new generation" of BHB that are being used in the top-rated ketone supplements this year. In fact it is used in Ketond BioMAX which is this year's #1 rated keto supplement.
D-BHB is an amazing ingredient. When dosed properly, it hits you fast and gives you a great boost in energy and cognition. What we don't know is the amount of D-BHB used in Keto//OS NAT. Everything is hidden in a proprietary blend. This is why it is ranked #6 on this years list. Well that and the price. Twenty servings of NAT will set you back $130 / $6.50 per serving. If you are taking 2 servings per day, which Pruvit recommends for “optimal performance” a one month supply (60 packets) will cost you a whopping $390!!
Perfect Keto Base is also a relatively new ketone supplement. Perfect Keto is marketed as a supplement that will help you “Get Into Ketosis” and promotes “Effortless Fat Loss”. While we do love ketone supplements, these are two marketing gimmicks that we have an issue with.
Exogenous ketones ie ketone supplements elevate your blood ketone levels. They don’t necessarily put you in a state of ketosis or induce ketogenesis – which is in a nutshell the conversion of fat into ketones by the liver. What Ketones have been shown to do is suppress your appetite.
So, I don’t know if it’s “wishful thinking” or “enhanced marketing claims” but if you are looking for “effortless fat loss” then simply taking Perfect Keto and expecting a miracle might leave you feeling hustled. Perfecto Keto sells for $59 for 15 servings, so about $4 per serving.
Pruvit Keto//OS (Ketone Operating System) is a multi-level marketing company whose primary products are different variations of ketone supplements. Keto OS 3.0 is similar to the 2.1 but contains no MCT powder and comes in a (very bland) chocolate flavor.
Pruvit doesn't disclose the amount of ketones (bhb salts) that are in each serving of any of their products. In fact, right now on their website they don't show ANY of the ingredients in Keto//OS 3.0. Instead of being open about ingredients, they are all put into “proprietary blends”.
When you order Keto//OS 3.0 you literally have NO idea how much ketones, or any of the other ingredients you are getting in each serving. Not only that but because of the Multi Level Marketing Model, these products are REALLY expensive. Thirty servings of Keto OS 3.0 will set you back $160 / $5.33 per serving. If you are taking 2 servings per day, which Pruvit recommends for “optimal performance” a one month supply will cost you a whopping $320!!
