Do you ever feel like you want a sports drink, but you just don’t want all the extra sugar? Ketone 1 is a new sports drink that uses ketones and electrolytes for a low carb and low energy sports drink.
Limited Labs from Austin, Texas created Ketone 1. They are currently crowdfunding through IndieGoGo to launch this sports drink alternative. Please be aware that any information in this post is not intended as medical or professional advice.
Do I Need A Sports Drink?
During short workouts, I just drink water. However, I tend to crash during long-duration, low-to-moderate activity, especially between meals.
Once I had an early lunch then attended a one-hour Pilates class followed by a 90-minute dance class after work. About an hour into the class, I felt that familiar trembling feeling, my balance started to suffer, and I suddenly could not remember the combinations and choreography that I knew well. Then I started to feel dizzy and was obsessed with sugary foods! I snuck out of class and bought a pastry from the bakery downstairs from the studio.
In a moment of weakness, I undid an otherwise active and healthy day. I wish I knew about Ketone 1 sports drink!
I must admit, the previous story was not a one-time occurrence. The activity varies, but this experience is all-to-frequent as I like to exercise after work and before dinner.
Ketone 1 appears a perfect way to replenish energy, whether it is a long hike in the sun, a day working outside, or cross country skiing.

About Ketone 1 & The Theory Behind It
Ketone 1 is a minimalistic, sugar-free sports drink. It is the first sports drink to contain ketones and electrolytes. Ketones are a favored fuel source for people on low carb or ketogenic diets. According to the creators at Limited Labs, Ketone 1 replenishes your electrolytes, powers you through your workout, and suppresses hunger. Drink Ketone 1 before engaging in strenuous exercise and endurance-based training.
To understand how Ketone 1 works, you need a basic understanding of ketosis. Limited Lab’s explanation of ketosis is so clear; I decided to borrow it!
“Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body is not dependent on glucose (from carbohydrates/sugars), but instead relies on ketones. Ketones are unique little metabolites that form from the breakdown of fats. So when you are in ketosis, your body burns its fat stores to create ketones to fuel your cells.” (Source Limited Labs)
If Ketone 1 Doesn’t Contain Sugar, What Does It Contain?
Ketone 1 is an innovative alternative to traditional sports drinks. Ingredients include ketones, electrolytes (including calcium, magnesium, and sodium), and natural flavors. As someone who usually prefers a shorter ingredient list, I find their transparency refreshing.
Ketone 1 only contains 26 calories per bottle! I usually prefer to eat my calories rather than drink them. However, sometimes I need a little liquid energy during a hike, dance workshop or even when working a long-day at a sporting event.
