Ketogenic diets force your body to adapt to using fat for fuel when glucose (from carbs) is not present. Ketones are also a great energy source when consumed from exogenous sources. KetoSports' Keto Test Strips provide a fast, convenient way of testing urine for the presence and concentration of ketones via a measure of acetoacetic acid.
These small absorbent sticks change color to reflect the amount of ketones present in urine. Simply dip the reagent end of the strip into a urine specimen or wet reagent area of the strip by passing through the urine stream. Tap edge of strip to remove excess liquid and check color within 10-15 seconds against the color chart provided on the bottle.
The chemical reagent is very sensitive to moisture, including what's in the air. It's important to keep the lid of the container tightly closed at all times. Once opened, they have a shelf-life of about 6 months.
