keto/low carb eating?
arrived quickly. the strips are easy to use and work just great, as part of my low carb dieting. I know when I have not stayed within my carb limits and can quickly pin point what food may have pushed me out of ketosis. Great color chart is easy to read

Test color chart is too small to compare and colors don't match
The price and quantity of these are great but the color chart on the bottle is small and colors don't match up at all, it also takes 40 seconds for the complete outcome while other name brands take only 15 seconds.
But you get 125 strips for a great low price! I saved the old bottle from my last name brand strips and the colors match up on those so I just use it, also, I noticed the pictures of the chart on some of the other reviews and that is not at all what the chart on this bottle looks like
So the bottom line is if you don't mind the extra testing time and you save an old name brand bottle these are really great! And ketone test strips are still an awesome motivation for carb dieting!
on 2017-01-12 Not a fan anymore of these strips.
I used to buy these, but when they disappeared from AlumiGogo (for a few weeks) I tried to contact ZAELusa twice to see what was going on with them and they did not respond to me. I have since found a far superior product here on AlumiGogo: 150 Count (Made in USA) Ketone Test Strips - Bonus Ketone Guide sent via Email
. Not only does the One Earth product contain 150 strips instead of Zael 120 strips, the colors of the results on the "One Earth strips" are much more discernable than the Zael ketone test strips. Zael actually did me a favor by not responding to my two requests regarding the "disappearance" of their ketone test strips as I found a GREAT product in the One Earth ketone test strips!

THE STRIPS I RECEIVED DO NOT WORK!
The test strips that I received did not register anything at all. I used them when I first bought them & every day once I went low carb. Nothing EVER registered. I continued to try, losing patience with my body & wanting to give up on the low carb way of eating. A friend told me to buy new test strips, and WOW what a difference! So, I decided to do an experiment. I was getting a nice moderate-large reading on my "Nurse Hatty Professional Grade Ketone Test Strips", so I did a side by side comparison. My Nurse Hatty's turned pink/dark pink, NOTHING for the "ZEAL" strips. I have been doing that experiment all day, looks like this batch is bad & my money was wasted. I only decided to review this product because it looks like too many others are having this problem. Bottom line.....DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Test These When New
These didn't seem to work. After getting back on keto diet and not cheating, color barely seemed to budge. Finally I tested them with 100% acetone, and no color change either. Diluted acetone with water, tried another, nothing. Maybe I had them too long in the bathroom; humidity tends to ruin test strips.

It's pretty easy to tell if you're in ketosis or not
My only complaint is that the colors are so close together ! Sometimes it's really hard to tell which indicator it corresponds with. It's pretty easy to tell if you're in ketosis or not, so for my dieting purposes, it worked.

These sticks don't lie
We use these to monitor where we're at on our Keto diet. My significant other was convinced they weren't working until I peed on one and it turned dark purple....and then he remembered he had a few bites of a donut earlier....

Works as described. I'm a cheapo, and always testing my ketone levels while low carbing. I actually cut mine in half, and double the quantity. 240 strips vs 120!! Woo hoo!

I like these because they are very detailed on what the shades mean with ketone levels. I used to think the darker the better, but it really isn't the issue. NIce product.
