Gluten Free & More magazine’s primary focus is all about gluten-free living! We focus a lot on those with celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and those with a wheat allergy. However, as gluten-free has changed and evolved over the years, we also include other diets that are often used as another addition to your celiac-safe diet. Paleo, primal, AIP, and Keto are some of the diets that are gaining in popularity for those already on a gluten-free diet. Today we’re going to talk about the ketogenic diet with Ancient Nutrition and Get Real Nutrition and Dr. Axe Keto-friendly products!
According to Ancient Nutrition, the ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat and moderate-protein diet that shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat burning and ketone production, putting the body into a metabolic state called ketosis. In short, the ketogenic diet positions the body to burn fat as fuel.
But, as keto diet followers can tell you, it’s not easy! It’s more than just eating avocados and bacon and eggs!
hen the body has the ability to burn fat as fuel, the liver naturally creates fats called ketones. Ketones can provide energy more efficiently than carbs can, which, in turn, stokes the body’s fat-burning potential.
The liver naturally produces “endogenous” ketones while in ketosis, but exogenous ketones are those provided from outside the body. Exogenous ketones are often used by the keto dieter and non-keto dieter alike.
This is where KetoFIRE steps in!

It contains MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) that you may know from paleo coffee that uses butter or coconut oil to increase your dose of MCTs. It contains caffeine from organic coffee cherry, and adaptogenic herbs, like organic ashwagandha, ginger, black pepper)to boost energy, and exogenous ketones (BHB).
Beta Hydroxybutyric (BHB) is a ketone body and is also known from keto salts. BHB is great for those transitioning to the ketogenic diet and is ideal for those who are already in a state of Keto, or virtually anyone—no matter what diet they choose.
KetoFIRE also provides fat from non-rendered organic chicken bone broth oil and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) from coconut. While there are four primary MCTs contained in coconut, KetoFIRE focuses on caprylic acid, which is also known as C8.
For those following a ketogenic diet higher in fats, it’s important to have the corresponding ratio of fat-digesting enzymes. Lipase, for example, is an enzyme necessary for the digestion of fatty (lipid) substances found either in the diet or as part of normal human metabolism. Lipase helps break down fats into smaller components for digestibility.
You can also purchase a CAFFEEINE FREE version of KetoFIRE.
