What You Should Know
KETOSlim Shake is a protein powder supplement with “Critical Keto-Nutrients”. The supplement is formulated for use with carbohydrate restricted diets as is common with diabetics and those trying to lose weight.

While KETOSlim Shake may include ingredients other protein shake companies leave out, the metabolism boosters leave much to be desired. Super Citrimax is a common ingredient that claims to boosts metabolism and increase weight loss. Unfortunately, KETOSlim Shake does not provide medical or research support for this claim. The same goes for apple cider vinegar. The old wives tale that drinking vinegar caused an increase in weight loss has been disproven many times over.
KETOSlim Shake does offer a healthy supply of green foods and intestinal flora which can make a positive impact on digestion. When digestion is intact, the body tends to process foods more efficiently and thus need less food over time. This effect is minimal, however, in terms of weight loss.
Despite the fact that a Critical Green Whole Food Blend is a major part of the KETOSlim Shake, there is no fiber in the supplement. Fiber occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables including alfalfa sprouts, spinach and peaches, but no fiber amounts are listed on the nutritional label of the KETOSlim Shake.
One can of KETOSlim Shake, which offers only 10 servings at the 0.8 pound size, retails for about $20.00. KETOSlim Shake cannot be ordered from the Nature’s Plus website despite being manufactured by the company.
- Protein shakes can offer healthy alternative to high calorie meals.
- KETOSlim Shake lists all ingredients online.
- KETOSlim Shake is priced higher than comparable protein and meal replacement shakes.
- Despite being rich in green foods, there is no natural fiber listing on the nutritional label.
- Protein shakes do not support weight loss on their own.
- No healthy meal plan or exercise routine is offered to help with weight loss.
- Supplementation of fat burning supplements may be needed at an additional cost.
KETOSlim Shake may be a good meal replacement product for a diabetic patient, but weight loss is not the product’s primary goal. Nature’s Plus does not offer product pricing or ordering from the official website. Links to research data supporting the ingredients would have been a good idea.
