WHAT ARE KETONES?
Ketones or Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (aka BHB) is a molecule that is considered a ketone body. It is one of the main molecules that helps your body produce energy in the absence of glucose. This molecule is essential if you’re using your own fat for fuel or taking BHB as a supplement to increase energy production — essentially to be in nutritional ketosis. Exogenous ketones raise blood ketone levels to mimic the bodily process of natural ketosis. Our Ultimate Beginner’s Guide will help you transform your life.
WHO SHOULD TAKE KETONES?
Those who are living the ketogenic lifestyle by eating a ketogenic diet of 70% fat, 20% protein, and 5% carbohydrates daily, for the purpose of managing or losing weight. Similarly, those on a low-carbohydrate diet can also take exogenous ketones as in both situations, ketosis is the desired result to be achieved.
WHEN TO TAKE KETONES?
One time per day, in the morning before eating food. Effects can potentially include increased energy, hunger suppression, general well-being feeling, and/or increase mental acuity and focus.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO TAKING KETONES?
Some general side effects of your body producing BHB is essentially the lull in time it takes to switch from carbohydrate to fat metabolism, which can take 3-4 days, or up to two weeks in some cases. This can lead to mood swings, fatigue, and general low energy. Taking exogenous ketones increases blood ketone levels to help your body transition into ketosis faster and skip this “keto flu,” as your bodies tries to adjust to using fat as an energy source versus carbohydrates (sugar). If you experience slight gastrointestinal distress when taking too much supplemental BHB, take half the daily recommended amount until your tolerance builds up.
