Ketone sticks are used to detect ketones in urine. The Medical Vita Diet is known as a Ketogenic Diet. On the Vita Diet a person’s carbohydrate intake is restricted over a short period of time causing the body to use its backup energy source, the fat cell. When the fat cell breaks down, it releases ketones into the blood stream and later into the urine. These ketone traces can be monitored using the Vita Diet ketone sticks enabling Vita Diet fat burning results to be tracked.
These sticks provide a safety check that you are not burning fat too quickly.
