Keto1 Protein Is the Most Complete All-in-One Ketogenic Supplement!
If you’re on the keto diet and trying to watch your carb intake, we know how tough it can be to find a quality meal replacement and protein powder that isn’t loaded with fillers and added sugars. This is why we took the initiative to create the most complete and delicious all-in-one keto supplement – Keto1 Protein!
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…
Keto1 Protein contains a unmatched blend of herbal extracts, organic mushrooms, BHB salts, nootropics, and insulin-sensitizing ingredients that perfectly complement the ketogenic diet (and even those who follow a higher-carb diet).
Plus, Keto1 Protein comes in delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter and Strawberry Shortcake flavors that are sure to satisfy your cravings. It mixes easily in both hot or cold liquids for a protein and healthy fat boost you won’t find in any other ketogenic supplement. You can even bake with it and add it to foods to take your keto recipes up a notch!
The Ideal Ketogenic Protein Powder
Keto1 Protein is ideal for those on the keto diet and anyone who needs a healthy meal replacement while on-the-go. We know how tough it can be to find nutritious options when you’re out and about or in a time crunch, which is why Keto1 Protein is more than just a protein supplement – it’s an all-day ketogenic fuel and recovery supplement. No matter what time of day it is, Keto1 Protein gives you the quality protein, healthy fats, BHB salts, and phytonutrients that help you stay energized, focused, and vitalized.
If you’re used to relying on meal replacement powders and “protein bars” that are essentially glorified candy bars with some soy protein sprinkled in, then prepare to be blown away by Keto1 Protein. This is not your typical meal replacement powder or protein supplement. We made sure to eliminate sugars and fillers, meaning each serving of Keto1 Protein contains less than one gram of total carbohydrates.
Not on a low-carb diet? No problem. Just add Keto1 Protein to any carb source of your choosing and you have a healthy meal in a matter of seconds. It’s simple to mix with oatmeal, yogurt, etc.
Perfect Keto Macros
Keto1 Protein contains the perfect macro profile for ketosis, with 10 grams of healthy fat, 15 grams of quality protein, and less than 1 gram of carbohydrate per serving. Even better, Keto1 Protein features grass-fed ghee and coconut which are rich in essential fatty acids and MCTs which are rapidly digested and absorbed for a long-lasting and clean form of energy.
But we didn’t stop there, as Keto1 Protein also contains potent herbal extracts, collagen peptides, and organic mushrooms for anti-aging benefits and a synergistic edge you won’t find in any other keto supplement.
Curb Sugar Cravings, Enhance Recovery and Boost Energy
Diets high in carbs and sugar can actually expedite aging processes throughout the body and appear to be the culprit of the climbing obesity rates.3 Using Keto1 Protein is the ideal way to enhance ketone production, performance, and recovery, all without the side effects of acute blood glucose swings that often come about after consuming insulin-spiking sugars.
In fact, many meal replacement powders and protein supplements on the market contain pure dextrose and maltodextrin, which are two of the strongest insulin-spiking carbs known to man. Keto1 Protein is made with premium organic ingredients and none of the junk, like added sugars and artificial sweeteners, that many meal replacements come loaded with.
Instead, the satiating healthy fats and high-quality protein sources in Keto1 Protein help naturally curb your cravings for sugar. This makes Keto1 Protein the perfect way to control your appetite throughout the day, especially when you’re on a low-calorie ketogenic diet.
Did we mention that Keto1 Protein is so delicious you’ll swear you’re eating a sugary treat when you taste it? (Without the guilt, of course.)
Science behind Keto1 Protein: How the Ingredients Work
Whey Protein Hydrolysate, Isolate, & Concentrate
Keto1 Protein contains three different forms of whey protein, including hydrolysate, isolate, and concentrate, for maximizing muscle recovery and lean mass gains. Whey is a byproduct of cheese manufacturing and is the watery liquid that remains after milk curdles.
Whey protein is made by processing whey through various methods that remove most (if not all) of the fat, milk sugar (lactose), carbs, etc. What makes whey protein so beneficial is that it’s the most bioavailable source of essential amino acids for humans, especially branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Thus, whey protein is ideal for promoting muscle protein synthesis and blocking muscle protein breakdown.
Whey protein hydrolysate is made via enzymatic hydrolysis (i.e. splitting the peptide bonds) of whey protein, which yields shorter amino acid chains that are basically “pre-digested” and quickly absorbed. In turn, whey protein hydrolysate is simple to digest and rapidly increases muscle protein synthesis.
Similar to whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein isolate is rapidly absorbed and easy to digest. Whey protein isolate is made by ultrafiltration of whey protein and a subsequent ion-exchange process which filters out unwanted molecules (e.g. lactose, fat, cholesterol, etc.), leaving a final product that is nearly all protein.
Whey protein concentrate is like the bread-and-butter form of whey protein, also made by ultrafiltration processes. We made sure to include high-quality whey concentrate with negligible lactose.
Hydrolyzed Bovine Collagen & Beef Bone Broth Protein
Collagens stand as the most abundant class of peptides in the humans, accounting for upwards of 40% of the total protein content in the body. However, as we grow older the body starts to produce significantly less collagen, which can expedite the aging process. This is why Keto1 Protein comes packed with bovine collagen and beef bone broth proteins, which are rich sources of Type-I and Type-III collagen peptides. Type-I collagen is the most prevalent form of collagen in the body, being present in essentially all connective tissues and organs. Type-III collagen is another abundant form of collagen and crucial for keeping the skin healthy.
Hence, type-I and type-III collagen peptides are arguably the most essential collagen types for protecting against aging and connective tissue degeneration. In other words, bovine collagen and beef bone broth protein are imperative for healthy skin, strong bones, joint integrity, and optimal muscle function.
Grass-Fed Ghee (Clarified Butter)
Grass-fed ghee is a type of clarified butter which is prepared by simmering grass-fed butter so that the clear liquid fat residues separate from the solid fats that settle to the bottom. This gives grass-fed ghee a unique fatty acid profile (high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid) with a nutty taste. In Ayurvedic medicine, ghee is called the “mode of goodness” due to its versatile and expansive benefits, ranging from protection against heart disease, reducing LDL cholesterol levels, lowering insulin levels, inhibiting oxidative stress, and more.
We made sure to use grass-fed ghee instead of the conventional grain-fed ghee you find at most supermarkets and grocery stores. Grass-fed cattle produce milk that has a significantly healthier composition of micronutrients and essential fatty acids than milk from grain-fed cattle.
Coconut is nature’s densest (and most sustainable) source of MCTs, which are essentially “quick-acting” fats that provide lasting energy. Many MCT oils and MCT powder supplements are made by refining coconut oil down to certain compositions of medium-chain fatty acids (capric acid, caprylic acid, and lauric acid). These fatty acids are ultimately what give the MCTs in coconut oil its multitude of benefits, such as supporting healthy gastrointestinal integrity, boosting ketone production, enhancing immune defenses, protecting against cognitive decline, and promoting cardiovascular function.
BHB (beta-hydroxybutyrate) is one of the three ketone bodies made naturally/endogenously as part of fat metabolism. However, what sets BHB apart from acetone and acetoacetate (the “other” ketones) is that BHB appears to have distinct signaling properties throughout the body, ranging from reduction of lactic acid build-up during exercise, amplifying muscle protein synthesis, modulating appetite, blocking inflammatory markers, and conceivably much more. In addition, BHB readily serves as a source of fuel for brain cells, thereby promoting healthy cognitive function and potentially reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases.
The BHB salts in Keto1 Protein are identical in chemical structure to the ketones your body naturally makes as part of the ketogenic diet. Hence, BHB salts are a practical and efficacious way to help you reap the benefits of ketosis regardless what type of diet you follow.
L-tyrosine is an essential amino acid and precursor to catecholamines, specifically noradrenaline and dopamine, which help drive reward-motivated behavior and enhance mood. When your body is lacking L-tyrosine, you’re likely to feel less determined to accomplish much throughout the day and may find it hard to concentrate on mentally demanding tasks.
Studies have shown that supplementing with free-form L-tyrosine helps promote cognition and focus, especially while trying to study, read, write, etc Moreover, L-tyrosine can help you push harder while you’re exercising and training since dopamine bolsters motivation and is a key neurotransmitter implicated in goal attainment.
Organic Lion’s Mane & Organic Reishi Mushrooms
Ganoderma lucidum is the scientific name for the reishi mushroom – a large, polypore mushroom with distinct red-varnished, kidney-shaped caps. Reishi has been used for over 2,000 years in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as it is considered one of the “immortality herbs” in the Compendium of Materia Medica – the most comprehensive and monumental medical book ever written with over 1,800 entries of items (most of which are plants) that are believed to have therapeutic benefits.
Fast forward to now and the evidence supporting the healing properties of the highly acclaimed reishi mushroom are nothing short of compelling. Several studies have shown that the proteins and triterpenes (mainly ganodermic acids) in reishi have strong anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties, even ameliorating the effects of alcohol-induced liver injury and fatty liver disease.
In addition, clinical evidence suggests that ganodermic acids in reishi have antitumorigenic and antimetastatic properties. Researchers maintain that extracts of Ganoderma lucidum are a going to be a viable alternative treatment for managing various forms of cancer in the near future.
Even if reishi doesn’t take off as a standalone treatment for cancer, a recent research review found that cancer subjects who were on either radiotherapy or chemotherapy were 27% more likely to respond to their cancer treatment when they supplemented with reishi extract throughout the process.
While reishi is exceptionally potent for immunity and liver protection, Keto1 Protein also features organic Lion’s mane (Hericium erinaceus) – another beneficial mushroom which has over 70 characterized constituents that may help prevent or treat a variety of gastrointestinal and neurological diseases.
In fact, Lion’s mane is classified as a neurotrophic agent, meaning it helps promote the growth and differentiation of neurons, primarily in the peripheral nervous system (especially those involved in the cholinergic system). This is imperative for reducing the risk of cognitive dysfunction and neurodegenerative diseases.
One study found an astonishing 60.6% increase in outward growth of neurites in nerve cells that were treated with Lion’s mane extract. The study noted that Lion’s mane induces a peptide known as nerve growth factor (NGF), which stimulated nerve cells to grow and differentiate. Since this happens primarily in the cholinergic system (which is governed by acetylcholine), Lion’s mane can significantly boost cognitive function and mental performance.
Further evidence has shown that Lion’s mane is a potent mushroom for protecting the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract, even blunting the growth of ulcers in mice that were treated with ethanol (which normally encourages ulcer development). Lion’s mane also helped maintain antioxidant status in the mucosa of the GI tract, an important factor for overall gut health.
Key Herbal Extracts (Achyranthes Aspera, Artichoke, Ginkgo Biloba, Garcinia Cambogia, Griffonia Simplicifolia)
Keto1 Protein features a panel of herbal extracts that provide a spectrum of beneficial polyphenols and phytonutrients, such as 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), hydroxycitric acid, ginkgolides, cynarin, bilobalide, luteolin, chlorogenic acid, and many others.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), hydroxycitric acid, ginkgolides, and bilobalide appear to work synergistically by promoting serotonin synthesis in the brain and reducing its reuptake. Serotonin is often referred to as the “feel-good” neurotransmitter since it tends to promote healthy mood and fight feelings of depression. Thus, people with higher levels of serotonin tend to have better appetite control and an easier time losing weight.
Moreover, cynarin, luteolin, and chlorogenic acid have pronounced effects on blood lipids by inhibiting inhibiting enzymes that allow cholesterol to be synthesized – similar to the effects of statin drugs. These phytochemicals also appear to protect against hypertension and obesity by helping expand blood vessels (via nitric oxide) and inhibiting enzymes involved in glycolysis.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is touted as being one of the most effective natural anti-diabetic agents. In fact, Hippocrates was said to use a mixture of honey and apple cider vinegar to treat a myriad of diseases. In modern alternative medicine, ACV is used to treat type-2 diabetes, hyperlipidemia, candida infections and much more. A large body of evidence shows that consumption apple cider vinegar (which provides acetic acid) can help attenuate blood glucose and blood lipid (particularly LDL cholesterol) increases by as much as 30% after eating. It appears that apple cider vinegar does this by delaying the gastric emptying rate and possibly enhancing insulin sensitivity, which also consequently promotes a sense of satiety and fullness (thereby reducing food cravings). This makes ACV a highly beneficial ingredient for most anyone regardless what diet they follow.
Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is a plant natively found in high elevations (4000-4500 meters above sea level) of the Andean Region of Peru. Maca is the quintessential “superfood,” with its roots being an exclusive source of macaridine and macaenes.
These compounds appear to be especially useful for boosting sex drive (libido) without altering sex hormone levels; instead, it’s suggested that the aphrodisiac properties of maca arise due to changes in neural pathways that govern libido. Macaridine may also enhance cognitive function and reduce anxiety by protecting brain cells from oxidative stress and neurotoxins.
Another promising benefit of maca is that it’s been shown to inhibit the growth of the prostate gland (which is common in aging males) by blocking the anabolic effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on prostate cells.

It is a diet consisting of high-fat intake, substantial protein, and minimal carbohydrates. This consequently forces the body to rely mainly on fat for energy instead of carbohydrates, thereby increasing the production of ketones.
Keto1 Protein is a high-quality and complete keto meal replacement, featuring virtually no carbohydrates and ample amounts of healthy fats and essential proteins. As such, you can consume Keto1 Protein at most any time of the day as a meal substitute, but at the very least we recommend taking it 30-45 minutes before or after a workout.
No, absolutely not! Our protein is naturally flavored and colored using ingredients such as stevia and cocoa powder.
Absolutely! Keto1 Protein is a nutrient-dense food supplement and also contains BHB salts to help you get into ketosis rapidly.
Stevia is a plant that contains all-natural, non-caloric compounds known as stevioside and rebaudioside-A that have exceptional sweetening power without spiking blood glucose or insulin levels like many sweeteners do.
Our protein mixes easily even with a spoon. Our favorite combos are mixing it in almond or cashew milk for some added richness.
