3 Best Keto Supplements to Improve Ketosis
Omega-3 Fatty AcidsOmega-3 fatty acids can help enhance the effects of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet by helping increase insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammation. Another major benefit of omega-3s is that they can help balance out your intake of omega-6s. When someone’s eating a high-fat diet, it’s ideal that their saturated fat sources be grass-fed if they’re from animal sources. Otherwise, commercially farmed animal products typically have higher omega-6 to omega-3 ratios. Fortunately, by supplementing with omega-3s, you’re able to help counteract some of this effect.
A group of 34 overweight male subjects between the ages of 25 and 65 were analyzed. The subjects followed a ketogenic diet for four weeks and were divided into two groups (one that was supplemented with omega-3s and a control group).  All of the subjects experienced significant body weight and body fat losses. Triglycerides and insulin levels decreased more in the ketogenic diet group that supplemented with omega-3s (although levels decreased for both groups). The omega-3 group saw significant decreases across various measures of inflammatory biomarkers.
CaffeineCoffee is a morning wonder drug for most people because of its ability to increase alertness and thermogenesis. Much of these benefits are due to the caffeine content found in a typical cup of joe.
A study aimed to evaluate the ketogenic effect of two doses of caffeine (2.5 mg/kg and 5.0 mg/kg) in 10 healthy adults.  Caffeine was given at breakfast and found to significantly stimulate ketone production in a dose-dependent manner (88% and 116%, respectively, for the two doses). The caffeine administration also raised plasma-free fatty acid levels.
This study highlights how caffeine can assist a typical low-carbohydrate diet by increasing the production of ketone bodies and elevating free fatty acid levels for greater fat oxidation (fat burning).
Exogenous KetonesExogenous ketone supplementation like KetoLogic’s BHB can be a major help for individuals trying low-carb, high-fat diets because it can induce a state of ketosis.
A test was done on male rats being administered exogenous ketone supplementation for 28 days. Weekly whole-blood samples were analyzed to measure levels of glucose and serum BHB. The exogenous ketone supplementation caused a rapid and sustained elevation of serum BHB levels and a reduction of glucose, which demonstrated the efficacy of exogenous ketone supplementation for inducing ketosis independent of dietary restrictions. 
This makes exogenous ketone supplementation a major luxury for individuals following a low-carb diet because they can help you get into a state of ketosis even when you’re not strictly adhering to a ketogenic diet. This can be a major convenience for busy people as it becomes difficult to follow a diet as closely when schedules become hectic.
