Four Steps to Ketosis
Start with one serving size
It might take your body a few days to adapt to this new macronutrient, and it might take you a few days to adapt to the “keto buzz.” Start small to ease into the adoption process
Take it with food
Has taking vitamins on an empty stomach ever made you feel queasy? We recommend taking your Switch with food to help your body adapt to and absorb the ketone ester.
Grab a chaser or mixer
All high-quality ketone esters have a noticeably strong taste (and if your ketone ester doesn’t, you probably need a new one…).
After just a few days, you’ll find yourself getting used to the taste. You'll be ready to take your Switch as often as you want to be in ketosis -- for some that might be daily.

I usually take mine on Mondays with my morning coffee. I like knowing that I’m putting my body into ketosis and giving it a nice boost after the weekend. It always helps me push through the Monday-blues.

Commonly Asked Questions

Just like when you add a new food to your diet, your body may need time to adapt to this new macronutrient. That’s why we recommend starting with just a single serving per day (½ bottle for the drink, 1 scoop for the powder) and taking it with food. After a few days (3-5), you’ll get used to feeling that “keto buzz” and to the taste.
The best time to take it is the time that works best for you! Some people like to take Metabolic Switch with their morning coffee. Others like to use it as a nice afternoon energy boost. The more you can incorporate Metabolic Switch into your day-to-day routine, the better!
That’s up to you! Some people like to be in ketosis daily. Others will drink it a few times a week. Find the routine that works best for you, and stick with it!

All high-quality ketone esters have a noticeably strong taste (and if your ketone ester doesn’t, you probably need a new one…). That’s why we recommend starting with smaller servings and taking your Metabolic Switch with a chaser or mixer.

For the drink: We recommend keeping your Switch in the fridge, and chasing with something like coffee or bubble gum to help with the taste.

For the powder: Using a shaker bottle, mix the powder with 10-12 oz of your favorite health beverage to soften and even mask the flavor. We recommend for best flavor, use a citrus flavored liquid water enhancer and ice. 1 or 2 packets of stevia will further enhance the taste.

You might still notice a slight “ketone ester” flavor. If so, we recommend drinking water after consuming your Metabolic Switch to help cleanse the palate. Don’t worry - you’ll get used to it after a few days!

The somewhat bitter aftertaste is common for all high-quality ketone ester products, including both our powder and drink options.

The Drink: Make sure to refrigerate your Switch and take it with a chaser (like coffee or bubble gum) to help with the aftertaste.

The Powder: The advantage of our powder is that it can be easily mixed to soften and even mask the flavor. If you are new to ketone esters or have a sensitive palate, we recommend starting with our powder option.

Ketones are a highly effective source of energy. You might notice that you have higher energy levels or an increased ability to focus. Not feeling anything? No worries! Research has shown that you’re still getting the benefits, whether you feel it or not.
The powder and beverage are both ketone ester products with the same health benefits. The main difference is in how you consume them.
Our unflavored powder has the benefit of flexibility. You can easily work it into your morning or other routine, mixing it in with your favorite health beverage, and it’s a great value per scoop. For strict keto dieters, it also contains no net carbs.
For customers looking for a pre-mixed, ready-to-consume option, our ketone ester drink is the perfect choice! Just grab a bottle and take it with you for ketosis on-the-go!
We recommend starting with a single serving (½ bottle for the drink, or 1 scoop for the powder). Once you have adjusted, you may increase your intake to as much as two servings (1 full bottle of the drink, 2 scoops of the power) per day to achieve your goals.

Hint: Consider monitoring your ketones using keto strips or other devices designed to measure ketosis.
Metabolic Switch quickly puts your body into ketosis that lasts for several hours.

How does it work? Metabolic switch is a C6 Ketone Di-ester - a compound that helps your body create ketones biologically identical to the ones your body creates naturally, putting you into deep nutritional ketosis.

Typically, when your body cannot rely on traditional sources of fuel (carbs and glucose), it instead breaks down fats and creates a “back-up” fuel, called ketones. Ketones are a powerful energy source that are proven to be especially beneficial for metabolic health. When ketones levels in the blood are elevated, you are considered to be in ketosis.

When consumed, the C6 Ketone Di-ester in Metabolic Switch is broken down to create butanediol and medium chain fatty acids. Butanediol is metabolized to create ketones, while the fatty acids stimulate ketogenesis - the same natural process which converts fats that originate in the body into ketones.

In other words, Metabolic Switch gives your body the building blocks it needs to produce ketones.
Nutritional ketosis is said to begin when the ketones in the blood are elevated to a certain level (around 0.5 mmol/L of BHB in blood). In a human study, we saw that one serving of Metabolic Switch (½ bottle of the drink, or 1 scoop of the powder) elevated blood ketones comfortably beyond this level. In other words, one serving of Metabolic Switch resulted in nutritional ketosis.

Deep nutritional ketosis begins when ketones in the blood are elevated even further (higher than 0.5 mmol/L of BHB in the blood, and up to 4 mmol/L). In the same human study, we saw that two servings of Metabolic Switch (1 full bottle of the drink, or 2 scoops of the powder) amplified the body’s response and led to deep nutritional ketosis.
Metabolic Switch allows you to switch to burning ketones for energy without a restrictive diet or fasting. If you’re already on the keto diet, Metabolic Switch can complement your diet and even help you stay in ketosis. That said, taking Metabolic Switch has not yet shown the same weight loss benefits as going on the keto diet. That's because when you’re taking Metabolic Switch, the ketones come from the drink, not your own fat.
