Have you heard about the ketogenic diet? Often simply called keto, it is a very low-carb high-fat diet. Although increasing your fat intake when you want to lose weight sounds counterintuitive, there is actually some good science behind it. By drastically reducing your carbohydrate intake, your body will get into a metabolic state called ketosis. While you are in ketosis, your body becomes far more efficient at burning fat. You can consume an exogenous ketone supplement to make your body adapt to the ketosis state more quickly and to increase your stamina and energy levels. Two popular exogenous ketone supplements right now are KetoForce and KetoCaNa. Both are produced by KetoSports. So, what is the difference between KetoForce vs KetoCaNa?
Packaging and Form
The most obvious difference between KetoForce and KetoCaNa is the form. KetoForce is a liquid supplement that comes in a bottle. It is very practical. You don’t really need to mix anything. Simply open the bottle and drink the content. However, you can indeed mix the liquid supplement with another beverage. This is actually recommended if you can’t stand the original taste.
On the other hand, KetoCaNa comes in a powder form. It comes in a tube. In order to consume it, you need to prepare it in advance. You need to mix the powder with some water according to the directions.
Taste and Mixing
As mentioned above, KetoForce can be drunk right away. However, note that the liquid supplement is unsweetened and unflavored. So, you have to endure the original taste, which is hardly tolerable. It has high levels of alkalinity and salinity. Unless you drink it very quickly, you may want to mix it with something that tastes more pleasant, such as orange juice or grapefruit juice.
On the other hand, KetoCaNa is flavored with an orange flavoring. It is sweetened with stevia. As a result, it tastes much better, even though the taste barely passes the ‘tolerable’ line. However, due to the flavoring and sweetener, KetoCaNa is not mixable. You can’t really mix it with another beverage, unless you don’t mind adding some orange hints from the supplement to the beverage.
Both KetoForce vs KetoCaNa contain the same primary ingredient: BHB. This is known to be the most efficient source of ketones. Unlike energy-boosting supplements that are based on carbs and sugars, KetoForce and KetoCaNa will not give an immediate power spike. Instead, these exogenous ketone supplements will provide constant energy supplies for a long period of time. Also, unlike carbs/sugars-based energy supplements, KetoForce and KetoCaNa will not cause a ‘crash’ after their effects wear off.
Both supplements here contain sodium. However, KetoForce contains potassium for the liquid form. KetoCaNa, on the other hand, contains calcium for the powder form.
- Endogenous ketone body beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB) in sodium and potassium salt form
- Raise the levels of blood ketones (BHB and AcAc) for 2.5-3.0 hours after ingestion
- Product has been shown to decrease the amount of oxygen consumed at a given power output
- Beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB) in an easy to mix powder (sodium/calcium blend)
- KetoCaNa is similar to our Ketoforce product in that it contains the endogenous ketone body beta-hydroxybutrate (BHB)
- Consumption of KetoCaNa before exercise can result in significant decreases in oxygen demand and increases in performance and may also heighten mental acuity and performance
In general, KetoForce is more recommended. Although the original taste is far from enjoyable, the liquid form is much more practical. And it is neither sweetened nor flavored, so it can be mixed with various drinks. On the other hand, KetoCaNa can be your choice if you prefer the orange taste and you don’t mind the powder form.
