Where To Buy Keto Strips

Testing for Ketones is an important step during a Keto Diet, and one of the most popular ways to do it is through Keto Strips. Sometimes it is not clear why to use them and how they work. In this article, you are going to see their mechanism and where to buy Keto Strips.

Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic Diet is a popular diet these days. It is a very effective diet for fat loss and better energy.

The Keto Diet is based on the principle of Ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body burns fat instead of glucose for fuel. It is a normal process that you can trigger through fasting, starvation, or, more easily, cutting carbs—not having carbs available, the body will switch to a secondary fuel, fat.


Ketones are the source of energy during Ketosis. When in Ketosis, your body starts sending fat to the liver to convert it to energy. The liver processes the fat and transforms it into a substance that can be used as fuel, Ketones. So Ketones are a by-product of Ketosis.

Why Testing For Ketones?

Ketones are a product of Ketosis. They prove that Ketosis is actually present. However, Ketones can also be dangerous when the concentration is too high. It is important to test for Ketones for the following reasons:

  • Avoid Ketoacidosis; when Ketones level is too high, there is the risk of Ketoacidosis, which is a dangerous state where the blood turns acidic
  • To check if you are in Ketosis if you are on a Keto Diet, you want to start and maintain Ketosis to benefit from it in terms of fat loss and energy levels

Why Using Ketones Strips?

There are several ways of testing for Ketosis. All these ways involve testing for the presence of Ketones.

You can test Ketones in the blood, in the breath, and in the urine. Different ways have different costs and processes. We find that the Ketones strips are a good balance between cost, ease of use, and reliability.

When you test Ketones in your blood, you need, in fact, blood and a blood tester. This can be expensive, and also, not everyone is keen to get blood for a test, not even a drop!

Testing Ketones through your breath can also require a costly device, and the reliability is not always worth it.

Ketones Test Strips, on the other side, are very cheap. They are easy to use because you only need to get some urine on a strip and wait a few seconds to get the result. They are fairly reliable, and due to their simplicity and cost, you can test them every day if you like (yes, I used to do this for a period of time).

Where To Buy Keto Strips?

If you decide to try to test for Ketones through urine (like I recommend), you might want to know where to buy Keto strips. Good news for you!

Ketones Test Strips can be bought in any pharmacy; you can ask at the counter. However, I found that retail pharmacies usually are more expensive than online stores, so I would suggest checking if there is an online store that can sell and ship in your country.
