Disclaimer: I have not been compensated for this review. I purchased all the Perfect Keto products mentioned below. The opinions expressed in the post are my own.
There is one thing I cannot start my day without. And that is my keto coffee. Well, my version of keto coffee at least. Black, with a scoop of MCT Powder and a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. (learn more about that here)
The combination of the caffeine and healthy fats from the MCT Powder gives me the boost I need to get my day started as a working mom and army wife. And, the Collagen Peptides helps give me that boost of collagen for my joints and gut.
However, I suffer from hormone imbalances, adrenal issues (yes, I know coffee isn't the best for this and I do limit my caffeine intake) and gluten sensitivity. So, I have to be very careful about what I am putting in my body, in order to avoid flare-ups.
(note: I've drastically reduced my gluten intake and am working on the hidden gluten identification… so far with cutting things out and trying to be mindful has helped me alleviate almost daily migraines)
I try to stick to whole foods as much as possible, and I usually only supplement with products that I know will definitely improve my health, from brands that trust.
One such brand is Perfect Keto. I use four of their products (two of them daily!) and I can honestly say that I noticed definite improvements since taking them.
The products I use are:
- The Perfect Keto Base (Exogenous Ketones)
- Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder
- And! Perfect Keto MCT Oil Liquid (I change it up sometimes
- Perfect Keto Nootropic
I wanted to share my experience with you about using these products. I wasn’t sent these products by Perfect Keto – I purchased them myself and have been using them regularly for a while now.
So you can be sure that what I am sharing with you is based on actual experience.
Are Perfect Keto Products Worth The Hype?
Honestly, at first, I thought it was a bunch of hocus pocus and folks hopping on the keto bandwagon to product city.
There are few companies that I love and use on a daily basis, but Perfect Keto is one of those. I grabbed their Exogenous Ketones Base and the Nootropic when I was first getting started to see how I'd like them and eventually grabbed the MCT Oil and then the MCT Oil Powder.
Truth be told, I navigated to the powder because I don't always blend up my coffee so the oil would sit on top and not be mixed well.
Now? I keep myself stocked up.
I've tried other products for experimenting purposes, but I come back to Perfect Keto.
Their customer service is ON POINT, their products are super high quality and they are truly out to help people navigate the keto world. The company is amazing.
Perfect Keto Base (Exogenous Ketones)
When you switch the keto diet, your body goes from burning carbs to burning broken-down fat (i.e. ketones) for energy.
Exogenous ketones provide an extra source of these ketones for your body to use (but without the spikes and crashes, or jitters, that you get from other energy sources).
Benefits of Consuming Exogenous Ketones
There are many benefits of consuming exogenous ketones in addition to the extra energy it provides.
It provides heightened focus and clarity. It can also trigger ketosis (which in itself provides many health benefits) and helps with feeling full.
And the most interest benefit of adding exogenous ketones to your daily diet is that it can help with your sense of well-being and emotional balance.
The Perfect Keto exogenous ketones were developed by a doctor (which gives me peace of mind!) It is also free of soy, dairy, gluten, artificial sweeteners, binding agents, or anything artificial.
You can choose from a variety of flavors – chocolate, coffee, peaches & cream, salted caramel, and vanilla.
My favorite flavors are the chocolate and salted caramel (I’m the kind of girl that will always choose the chocolate flavor if there is the option).
I add my Perfect Keto exogenous ketones to coffee and smoothies, but you can also add it to plain water – it tastes that good!
The ONLY “bad” for this product is that it doesn't fully dissolve in hot liquids. I use either a milk frother to blend it up or I'll put it in a blender.
Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder
I mentioned earlier that I cannot start the day without my coffee and a scoop of MCT oil powder. And now I’ll explain why.
Starting the day with plain coffee initially gives you that little caffeine jolt, but the energy disappears pretty quickly.
But MCT’s provide a clean burning, constant source of energy. No mid-afternoon slumps!
By now you’ve probably seen and heard about the ‘miracle fruit’ that is the coconut. Ok – some of those claims were false or hyped up. But – coconuts do provide an excellent source of healthy fats.
What Perfect Keto did, was to concentrate the best parts of the coconut (the MCT’s), and turn it into a creamy powder.
Benefits of consuming MCT Oil Powder
Glucose, caffeine, and other ingredients that provide energy work by giving you a quick energy spike, but it is then followed by a crash.
This is not only an unpleasant experience but also not healthy for the body.
MCT’s provide a constant source of energy for the body, so you don’t have to deal with a crash.
MCT stands for medium-chain triglyceride. This means that MCT oil contains medium-length chains of fats that are called triglycerides.
Their shorter length makes MCT’s easier to digest, and there are many health benefits that are linked to the way your body processes these fats.
MCT’s provide a wide range of benefits in addition to the constant energy source. These include increased focus and mental clarity, increased fat-burning, and it also triggers ketosis.
At first, I thought it was weird to take the MCT oil and turn it into a powder. It just seems like an unnecessary step. But then I realized I could take my powder with me when I am out and about. I don’t have to worry about the oil messing as I am pouring, or leaking in my bag.
You can also take it to work with you, and not worry about messy oil spills on your desk.
For some people, the MCT oil powder is also easier to digest than the oil.
The Perfect Keto MCT oil powder is 100% pure. It contains no soy, dairy, gluten, or artificial sweeteners. The only ingredients are coconuts and acacia fiber.
As I mentioned earlier, I use the MCT oil powder in my coffee every. single. morning.
You can also add it to fat bombs to up the fat count, as it mixes in with the other ingredients really easily.
Perfect Keto MCT oil powder also mixes in easily with smoothies and even plain water. It comes in quite a few flavor variants, including chocolate, vanilla, matcha, salted caramel, matcha, and even an unflavored version.
Perfect Keto MCT Oil Liquid
This isn’t just any MCT oil. To explain why we’re going to put our science hats on.
Perfect Keto uses a pure C8 formula.
C8 is the short name for caprylic acid. It is a shorter chain molecule than C12 and C12. This means that C8 converts into ketones more efficiently.
Only 6% of the MCT’s in coconut oil at C8! This means that your Perfect Keto C8 MCT Oil is providing you with the best, most efficient source of energy.
Benefits of consuming MCT Oil
The benefits of consuming MCT oil are the same as the benefits I mentioned above for consuming MCT oil powder.
Increased (non-stimulant) energy, improved mental focus, and increased fat-burning – what’s not to love?
I love using my Perfect Keto Pure C8 MCT Oil as the oil base for salad dressings. I’ll also add it into my fat bombs sometimes, to increase the fat count. You can also add this to your coffee (but if you do this, I recommend one of those blender wands to get the oil to mix well in the coffee).
Perfect Keto Nootropic
My memory is not the best. So, I need all the help I can get! 😉
I was intrigued to try the Perfect Keto Nootropic product because I had heard all about nootropics (also known as “brain boosters,” “cognitive enhancers”, or “smart drugs”) for a while, but ignored them.
For a long time, I thought they were a fad diet product that doesn’t actually work – like the green coffee bean extract that was being promoted as a miracle weight loss cure!
After trying other Perfect Keto products and being really happy with the results, I decided to dive in and give this one a try.
I was pleasantly surprised!
The taste took me a while to get used to (it has a slightly bitter taste), but it was worth sticking it out.
I feel more alert and attentive, I can concentrate better. And it is difficult to say for certain, but it certainly seems like my memory is improving!
Benefits of consuming Keto Nootropic
Nootropics have the potential to benefit pretty much anyone. They can help enhance focus, motivation, improve memory, improve your mood, and can even help you de-stress and help you sleep.
It can do all this by enhancing various mental functions by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, regulating the activity of neurotransmitters, increasing brain growth factors, and Increasing neuroprotection.
Keto Nootropic includes Phosphatidylserine, Ginkgo Biloba, Alpha Lipoic Acid, L-theanine, Cat’s claw, DHA, and Alpha GPC to support mental alertness, clarity, and concentration.
The mix also includes exogenous ketones to help fuel cognitive activities, and MCTs and grass-fed collagen peptides for lasting fuel.
As I mentioned – it has a slightly bitter taste, so I recommend adding in some Keto Collagen or MCT Oil Powder to improve the taste. I got used to the taste pretty quickly though, so unless you are sensitive to bitter flavors, give it a try on its own.
I add it to smoothies, and I sometimes even drink it straight, like a shot!
Other Perfect Keto Products I Haven't Tried
This product merges the best of instant coffee with MCT Oil.
- Use daily as your go-to delicious and convenient coffee drink
- As a keto-friendly boost between meals or to extend fasting periods
- Keep in your gym bag for pre-workout pick me up
- Stash in your car, office, or travel luggage for amazing coffee, even on the go
Perfect Keto Instant Coffee is great to stash in your purse for the mornings you have to run out of the house in a hurry.
Since it contains MCT already it makes it great for giving you a boost of energy and fat.
Personally, I use Vital Proteins, but Perfect Keto's Collagen powder is really great I hear.
You can add it to smoothies, coffee, keto mug cakes and much more.
Adding hydrolyzed collagen to your diet has been shown to support your skin, muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, bones, eyes, gut, heart and brain health. With:
- 10g of hydrolyzed collagen protein
- 5g of MCTs
- 0g net carbs
There are no artificial colors or flavors in their products also. Which makes this a great choice for collagen if you're looking for something new to try. They also have multiple flavors too.
The Keto Nut Butters
This product I'm actually curious about. I've heard great things about the nut butter, but I just haven't tried them yet.
You can try it in an 8oz jar or in packets. The packets are easy to carry around making them a great on-the-go snack!
- 20g of fat from MCT Oil
- Raw macadamia nuts and cashews
- Real vanilla bean powder
- No added sugars, sugar alcohols, chemicals, gluten, dairy, soy or corn
There just seems to be no downside to this product.
Blood Sugar Support Capsules
The Blood Sugar Support Capsules are a carefully chosen blend of ingredients that work together to support insulin sensitivity and stable blood glucose levels.
If you feel that your blood sugar regulation isn't so hot then this product may help you balance out your sugars while you're getting started!
- Chromium Piccolinate
- Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf Powder
- Bitter Melon Extract
- Cinnamon Extract
- Berberine Bark Extract
- Banaba Leaf Extract
Use daily to support normal cellular function and overall wellness. Or, take with higher carb meals to support healthy carbohydrate metabolism. It's great for post-exercise to support energy, digestion, and metabolism.
Note: Take with shakes, smoothies or snacks to promote healthy nutrient absorption,
So, What Do I Think About Perfect Keto?
They are one of the few products and companies that I really love and will stand by. The founders have high standards for the products they create and won't compromise on quality just to make a quick buck.
They're out to help everyone on their keto journey.
The customer support is top notch and super helpful every time I write in about a question and they're super great IF you have an issue (which I've never had personally).
If nothing else, there is a Keto Grab and Go bundle that has single serving products you can buy to try. It has all my favs in it plus a few more.
Want to lose weight with keto?
Starting keto can be daunting with all the information out there nowadays. But, I want to help you feel confident and encouraged for starting the keto diet.
Introducing the Keto Freedom 14-Day Detox!
This detox is not your average ordinary detox. You won’t be told to eat boring foods, only drink liquids, survive on juices, or starve yourself to lose weight.
No, that’s just crazy in my mind (I like to eat).
So, what is that 14-day detox all about?
You’ll get a 40+ page guide to keto, 20 recipes, and two weeks of meal plans PLUS shopping lists are already done for you.
Don’t worry, if you want to change it up, you totally can.
I wanted to take the stress out of the first two weeks of being keto so you could focus on your journey rather than scrambling to find information and meals.
