Keto Actives Weight Loss Supplement, Product Overview
Keto Actives is a fat-burning supplement that supports weight loss and is specifically (although not exclusively) recommended for those following a ketogenic diet (low carbs, high fat).
Created by dietitians and manufactured by Vital Nutrition LLC, each serving contains eight components which they claim help to reduce fatty tissue and block the body from storing it. In addition, Keto Actives helps to regulate and maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels which can also help prevent Type 2 diabetes in overweight people, and suppresses hunger so is also recommended for those with excessive appetites. Keto Actives is also claimed to boost energy and increase stamina and concentration.
In this Keto Actives Review, I’ll be looking closer at these claims and looking at some user testimonials to try and offer a fair and balanced review into how effective this product is and whether it’s worth spending your money on.
An Overview Of Keto Actives’ Benefits
- Supports the metabolism, reduces fatty tissue and prevents fat storage
- Reduces hunger and snacking urges
- Boosts energy, increases stamina and concentration, and provides energy for training
- Helps to regulate and maintain cholesterol and blood sugar levels
- Made from 100% natural ingredients
Keto Actives is marketed as a ‘modern dietary supplement’ to help you lose weight even on the most challenging areas of your body (for many this can be the hips, thighs, glutes and belly).
Vital Nutrition make some bold claims here whilst also stating that regular use will effectively support weight loss and guaranteeing the product will make you feel better. They back up their promises with a 90 day money-back guarantee.
Over an eight-week period, Keto Actives is claimed to help you shift significantly more weight (through the burning of fat tissue) when compared to a normal balanced diet by up to 25%. You should start to see the effects of Keto Actives after just a few weeks of use.
A key consideration for me when looking at any supplement is that it must use natural ingredients, meaning you’re not risking your health and wellbeing by consuming processed or unregulated lab-created products. Keto Actives is sourced from 100% natural ingredients, which is a big plus from me.

How Does Keto Actives Help You Lose Weight?
Keto Actives is recommended for those who are following a ketogenic diet, but can be used by anyone to help support and supplement their weight loss goals.
The Ketogenic Diet works by decreasing the amount of carbohydrates and sugar (glucose) consumed through food, which is the body’s main source of nutritional energy, causing ‘ketosis’. When the body is in a state of ketosis, it increases the burning of the body’s fat stores to use as energy. During this process, ketones are produced that are then used as clean energy for the muscles and brain.
By using Keto Actives regularly, you help support and accelerate the body’s natural fat burning abilities while decreasing cravings and boosting energy – which can suffer as a result of ketosis.
Let’s take a closer look at how this is all achieved:
A reduction in appetite: The ingredients Clarinol CLA, chromium and bitter orange extract help reduce hunger and food cravings, which can be especially helpful if following a restrictive diet. By reducing appetite, you snack less, reduce your meal portions and cut down on calories, helping to lose weight more quickly.
A boost to the metabolism and fat burning: The ingredients black pepper extract, bitter orange, capsicum and Clarinol CLA promote a faster metabolism, increasing the body’s ability to burn fat. This in turn helps burn fat stored in your body’s tissues, reducing body fat percentage when combined with a calorie deficit and regular exercise.
An increase in energy levels: The ingredients caffeine and bitter orange help to boost energy levels, improve focus and increase alertness to help performance and stamina in the gym and assist in burning more calories.
Helps to regulate blood sugar levels and decrease cortisol: The ingredients ashwagandha and chromium assist in reducing blood sugar levels and cortisol (the stress hormone which affects fat burning) therefore helping to prevent fat storage. By regulating the body’s blood sugar levels, you help avoid dips in energy levels throughout the day and prevent sweet cravings.
Things To Be Aware Of
The key thing with Keto Actives is that it is derived of entirely natural ingredients, however that does not mean that it is free of side effects for some people.
Both caffeine and bitter orange extract are stimulants and therefore, as with anything new, or when you plan to increase your intake of it, you need to make sure it won’t have an adverse effect on you. For instance, if you suffer from heart complications then these ingredients could cause you more harm than good. Likewise, if you suffer from Type 1 diabetes and take insulin then chromium and ashwagandha could interfere adversely on your strict blood sugar level control.
- Caffeine and bitter orange extract may cause racing heart and raised blood pressure and negatively affect your sleep quality.
- Nettle root may cause an upset stomach and excessive sweating.
- CLA can cause an upset stomach and, in extreme cases, affect normal liver function.
These are extreme cases however and, as with any new diet, you should consult a health professional if you are unsure, or if you suffer from any underlying medical conditions.
I couldn’t find many customer reviews but the ones I did find were mixed with an average 3.3 rating out of 5 from four customer testimonials. 50% would recommend the product based on their own experience of using it, 75% said it offered good value for money and 75% thought it was a good quality product.
It’s always difficult to tell with those who post negative reviews about a product such as this as results vary from person to person and are heavily dependent on the individual combining the product with a balanced diet, remaining in a calorie deficit (consuming fewer calories from food than your body needs) and exercising regularly. It should be added here that Keto Actives isn’t a magic pill and unless you’re prepared to put the work in yourself, you will see little to no results.
From this however, it’s difficult to say with any certainty how successfully the product works in reducing body fat for most people. The counter to this however is that you have a money-back guarantee which means if it doesn’t work, when used as described, you can return the product within 90 days for a full refund – so it’s a low risk purchase.

Keto Actives: Pros And Cons
- 100% natural ingredients
- Created by dietitians
- Suitable for vegetarians
- 90-day money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied
- Worldwide shipping
- Limited customer reviews found online.
- Not a great deal of information about the manufacturer.
- Product cost is expensive per bottle, but can be offset if purchasing larger packages, bringing the price down significantly.
- Shipping costs are added in addition at checkout and are fairly expensive. Also, the cost of shipping remains the same whether purchasing one or six bottles – which seems a little unfair!
- Ingredients can cause side-effects in some cases, especially for those with underlying health conditions.
My Final Verdict
Generally speaking, Keto Actives looks to be a safe, legitimate health supplement that contains natural ingredients and no processed substances. It’s produced by dietitians and contains proven ingredients such as CLA, caffeine, bitter orange extract, chromium and Indian nettle root that have been found in studies to promote fat loss and support a healthy digestive system and blood sugar levels. For more information on some of these ingredients and their effectiveness, you can read my article on fat burning supplements here. The added benefits of increased stamina and concentration appear to be bonuses too – great for helping you to power through a workout at the gym or for concentration when at work.
My only concerns are with the limited customer reviews to be found and the shipping which I think is quite expensive and remains the same whether you purchase one bottle or six – which I think is a little unfair. This can be offset obviously if you’re buying the standard or best value packages – but this seems to be a sneaky way to entice you to spend more to buy the bigger packages. With the biggest package however, this does work out to a fairly significant saving per bottle, so something to consider at least.
I’m glad there is a 90-day money back guarantee, which means you can try Keto Actives almost risk-free (you won’t get the shipping fees back though, or the cost of returning them) so if you’re unsure whether it will be for you then you can try it out, assess the results and return if you’re unhappy.
All in all, considering the safe, natural ingredients, the money back guarantee, and above average customer ratings (although limited), I’ve given this product a solid 8.5 out of 10 (let down slightly by the cost of shipping and the lack of consumer reviews).
My conclusion is that it’s worth trying the product out as long as you keep in mind that it will only work if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise regime. Of course, as with most products, there’s always the possibility it won’t work for some people at all. If this is the case then the worst you can expect is a boosted metabolism, good digestive health, and increased concentration and stamina – which could be enough to convince some it’s a worthwhile investment even without the fat-burning elements included.
As always however, assess the risk of any potential negative side effects, however small they may be, and if you have underlying health conditions, or you are unsure, then consult with a health professional before trying.
