Here’s another keto product line that’s hitting the ground running with the word keto – Keto Zen. These supplements are a little different from others because they work more like keto fat burners than a traditional keto supplement. That means there are stimulants in the mix somewhere.
Our researchers knew when they saw the ingredient lists that Keto Zen was different.
Keto Zen refers to a set of two supplements – Keto Zen BHB ketones and Keto Zen Weight Support Blend. PremiumDist sells the supplements on Amazon, but the company also sells a variety of other supplements. All are shipped directly from the company’s warehouse, which has been certified as an Amazon Prime warehouse.
This is how much it costs to start on the respective program. We always recommend trying a product before making a large investment.
= Initial product cost is less than $5
= Initial product cost is between $6 and $50

Keto Zen Claims
Both of the Keto Zen formulas – BHB and Weight Support Blend – make some pretty fantastic claims. The difference between other keto products and Zen is that there are stimulant ingredients in the mix, so there’s some science out there that makes the supplement worth a try. Most throw in BHB and disappear.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Sodium – Nutrition & Metabolism shows blood ketone levels increase in rats who’re given BHB. This doesn’t mean improved ketosis or a jump into ketosis if the diet isn’t lower in carbohydrates.
Guarana Extract – Increases energy as a stimulant. Guarana works similarly to caffeine.
Raspberry Ketones – If you’re looking for clinical research to proven raspberry ketones will work for weight loss, the best you’ll find is a test-tube study on rat cells. A study in the journal Planta Medica shows improvements in fat metabolism with the use of raspberry ketones. No human studies, however.
Acai Berry Fruit Extract – Acai is a potent antioxidant and, according to Pharmacognosy Review, “Antioxidants prevent free radical-induced tissue damage by preventing the formation of radicals, scavenging them, or by promoting their decomposition.”
Mango – Irvingia Gabonensis Extract – Lipids in Health and Disease shares, on irvingia gabonensis supplementation by obese individuals, “Irvingia gabonensis seed may find application in weight loss.” In the study, the obese subjects lost between 3% and 8% of their body weight.
Green Coffee Bean Extract – We found a review of clinical research published in the journal Gastroenterology Research and Practice that claimed a “significant difference in body weight with [green coffee extract]” resulted.
According to the Keto Zen product instructions, users should consume 2 capsules 1-2 times a day.
Benefits and Results
The reviews for Keto Zen are about 50/50 on Amazon. Mind you, there are fewer than 25 reviews, so there’s not much to go on. The negative reviews focused on the fact that the supplement didn’t work. There is no elaboration into what that means.
Keto Zen Cost and Where to Buy
You can purchase Keto Zen products from Amazon stores. Right now, Keto Zen BHB in a 60-ct bottle sells for $59.99 with free shipping. Amazon does not fulfill this product – the company you purchase from will send the product directly.
The Weight Support Blend sells for $49.95 with free shipping. This product also comes in a 60-ct bottle for 30 days of use. Your supplement is sold and shipped by the same people who do Keto Zen BHB.
Keto Zen Side Effects
The side effects with Keto Zen products may not be side effects at all, in some cases. Traditional side effects of stimulants like those in these formulas include:
However, if you are using Keto Zen and you enter ketosis, you may feel the effects of the keto flu. The symptoms, which mirror the flu to a T, include:
Joint Aches and Pains
Difficulty Eating Due to Loss of Appetite
Pros and Cons
Pros and Cons
We like to say that the pros and cons are the good and the not so good. In most cases, there’s nothing bad about supplements we review, they’re just not as strong as they could be or they don’t include the right ingredients or enough of the right ingredients to be effective. With Keto Zen, the pros and cons are basic because there’s nothing outrageous about the formulas.
Affordable – compared to other keto products
Some clinically-proven ingredients are used
Very little information on the products
Lackluster ingredients are used
Only available on Amazon
No official website
What Users Are Saying
“Pounds Melting Off – Using Ketozen each day in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise (running a mile each day, try!) has been the perfect formula for me to lose 10 pounds and start feeling like myself again. When diet and exercise don’t work, Ketozen may help. No doubt it’s helped me jump start my body to start losing weight and seeing results.”
“This is a rip-off – Doesn’t help.”
“Disappointed – Did not deliver the results as expected.”
Bottom Line on Keto Zen
Here we are at the final look at Keto Zen. We like that a company is finally standing up and combining the BHB you’re looking for with stimulants and other weight-loss ingredients. It’s like the user gets the best of both worlds. With that said, we’re not sold because we have more questions than we do answers and without more than a few online reviews, we’re not even sure anyone has purchased the product yet. New?
