Metagenics Ketostix 50 Strips
Benefits: Metagenics Ketostix
- For the detection of ketones: Ketostix are reagent strips for the detection of ketones in urine. Ketones are generated by the metabolism of fat as an energy source, when carbohydrates are reduced.
- Can be used in conjunction with the HealthMasters Shake It Practitioner Weight Management Program: Ketostix are a great tool for both Practitioner and patient, to provide motivation and an indication that fat burning is occurring throughout the HealthMasters Shake It Practitioner Weight Management Program. When the diet is followed correctly, the patient may produce urinary ketones registering in the 'small to moderate' range on the Ketostix colour scale. By registering in the 'trace' to 'small' range on the Ketostick (seen as a change in colour from beige to pink); the patient will know they are using fat as an energy source.
