The keto diet has gained a lot of attention because it lets you have your morning java and other beloved things like bacon and cheese. Brands are going hard making products that purport to follow this fad, and now there's a caffeinated beverage called It Works! Keto Coffee that claims it can help you hit ketosis quicker - the part of the diet where your fat is burned.

Dieters have seen positive results in the Keto diet by following its high fat, moderate protein, and very low carb regime. By keeping that up, you enter ketosis - the metabolic state where your body burns stored fat instead of glucose that comes from carbohydrates. The new keto-friendly beverage claims to help dieters reach this state quicker. The milk in the drink allegedly fires up the body’s ketone production to break down that stored fat even faster.

Women's Health caught up with Registered Dietician Pamela Nisevich Bede, on the new coffee, and she says it's not all bad. “There are ingredients included in this product that can help support some of these claims,” she explains, such as caffeine, that can help break down fat and boosting energy levels.

But, she's not exactly sold. “The MCTs from the grass-fed butter can be digested rapidly to allow for immediate energy production," continued Bede, "...the amount needed for that to work is quite high and will cause GI distress for most people.” Other ingredients that make up the new drink are as follows: hydrolyzed collagen peptides, xanthan gum, Himalayan pink salt, and milk.

Now that you have the low-down, you can decide for yourself if It Works Keto Coffee will make it into your next coffee rotation.
