EXOGENOUS KETONE SUPPLEMENT
The low-carb/high-fat diet, also known as the ketogenic diet, has seen many effective weight loss results. However, getting started can be tough. That’s what Keto-friendly supplements are for. Designed to help optimize the ketogenic diet, Keto supplements can help you to manage your weight, improve your brain function, shred excess fat from your body, as well as stabilize consistent energy output.
THE PERFECT FIT FOR ANY LOW CARB LIFESTYLE
Nutricost has developed a premiere Ketone Salts (4-in-1) supplement, a naturally-derived compound that mixes sodium, potassium, or calcium, with exogenous ketone Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) to improve absorption. Ketone Salts (4-in-1) are designed to provide a multitude of touted benefits such as athletic performance enhancement, efficient weight loss, optimized cognitive function, and anti-inflammatory properties. However, exogenous ketones seem to have the most benefit for those already in dietary ketosis. They are especially useful for already lean individuals in a caloric deficit, who train and perform at high levels and are looking for an additional energy burst, without resorting to adding in carbs prior to workouts.
There are 3 different types of ketones: Beta-hydroxybutyrate, Acetoacetate, and Acetone. Beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate are the most abundant ketones, while acetone is produced in much smaller quantities, and excreted as waste from the body through respiration. Beta-hydroxybutyrate can also be converted via BHB dehydrogenase into Acetoacetic acid, and ultimately Acetoacetate. This makes Beta-hydroxybutyrate the most vital ketone. Ketone bodies are then utilized in the citric acid cycle to synthesize energy in the form of Adrenosine Triphosphate.
While most exogenous ketones have a diuretic effect, Nutricost has added calcium, sodium, magnesium, and potassium to their Ketone Salts (hence the 4-in-1) in order to reinforce healthy electrolyte balance. Each exogenous ketone is bound to either four minerals to increase stability, bio-availability, and absorption. Any individual familiar with being in dietary ketosis knows the importance of consuming adequate electrolytes, since it is much easier to become electrolyte imbalanced in the absence of carbohydrates. Insulin signals the kidneys to retain important electrolytes, and with less carbs and less insulin production, it is easy to see why low carbers need a surplus of these crucial minerals.
Anything else I should know?
Many people have a hard time with the Ketone Salts unflavored taste. We recommend mixing this unflavored Ketone Salt with a preferred beverage or using something else to help mask the taste.
