KETONE SALTS EXPLAINED

Ketone salts AKA Keto//OS were developed and tested at the University of South Florida in the labs of Dr.Dominic D’Agostino and have just become widely available in 2016 through network marketing by Pruvit.

Ketone salts (Keto//OS) are carefully formulated and contain the actual ketone betahydroxybutyrate bound to sodium, calcium and magnesium and can increase ketone levels much higher than coconut or MCT oil and could bring about even more improvement. Using ketone salts could be part of the overall strategy to raise ketones, keeping coconut and MCT oil as the foundation.

Ketone salts are now widely used by people with a variety of conditions who are reporting positive responses, including brain fog, memory impairment, sleep problems, low energy, and conditions caused by inflammation (ketones are anti-inflammatory in addition to providing alternative fuel to the brain and other organs).  Many people have reported substantial fat loss, especially when combined with a low carb diet and without hunger (ketones can suppress appetite and encourage fat loss by reducing glucose and insulin levels and stimulating fat breakdown).  World class athletes and body builders are using ketone salts to enhance physical performance.

A healthy person could take a full serving of Pruvit KetoOS or KetoMax right away. For elderly people or those with chronic medical conditions I recommend getting doctor’s approval so that electrolytes can be monitored and I suggest starting slowly – 1 or 2 teaspoons once or twice a day and increasing gradually over a week or two as tolerated to 1/2 to 1 serving daily, or more as tolerated.  Also very important – the person taking the salts needs to be able to drink plenty of fluids to avoid a dehydrating effect of raising ketones.

The KetoOS 2.1 orange dream flavor is the ketone beta-hydroxybutyrate PLUS MCT oil powder with mild oragne flavor and stevia.  Works well in hot or cold drink – tea (cold or hot), water or sparkling water.  I know someone who doesn’t like it as a drink but puts it into Jello!!

The KetoOS 3.0 chocolate swirl has a light chocolate flavor and contains the ketone betahydroxybutyrate but NO MCT.  It does contain certain amino acids that help maintain muscle mass.

The KetoMax is Hawaiian punch flavor and is probably the best at elevating ketone levels the highest. Can be used in cold or hot drinks.  It is the more bio-available form of betahydroxybutyrate called the D-form.  Also has no MCT.  KetoMax will be coming out in a “hot cocoa” flavor soon.

KetoKreme is a combination of coconut and MCT powder (no betahydroxybutyrate) with stevia and cinnamon that you can put into a warm drink like coffee or tea.  I use this one myself in the morning in coffee and love it.

The most economical way to buy the ketone salts (Keto//OS) is a 30 day serving supply in a can which comes with a one serving scoop.  One scoop contains about 8 level teaspoons of the ketone salt powder, so if someone starts with one or two teaspoons as their serving the can could potentially last quite a bit longer than a month.  For more information, you can link through my website www.coconutketones.com OR www.marynewport.pruvitnow.com

New Important Article on Ketone Ester from Dr. Richard Veech NIH

New Important Article on Ketone Ester from Dr. Richard Veech NIH

 

A groundbreaking research study of a ketone ester in an Alzheimer’s mouse model was released for publication January 4, 2012, in Neurobiology of Aging by Yoshira Kashiwaya, M.D. and others in the laboratory of Dr. Richard L. Veech at the NIH in Rockville, Maryland. This study showed that, compared to animals fed a normal control diet, the Alzheimer’s model mice who were fed the ketone ester (D-beta-hydroxybutyrate-(R)-1,3-butanediol) had significantly less amyloid and tau protein that form the plaques and tangles in the Alzheimer’s brain, and the animals showed reduced anxiety, and improved learning and memory compared to the mice fed the control diet.

The Alzheimer brain in people becomes resistant to insulin beginning at least ten to twenty years before symptoms appear and this affects the ability of the brain cells to use glucose causing them to malfunction and die. It was discovered in the late 1960’s in the laboratory of George Cahill, M.D. (now deceased) that the brain easily switches over to using ketone bodies as an alternative fuel during starvation when glucose supplies are used up. This new research is the culmination of decades of research that followed, and, for the first time, shows that ketones could lessen the changes that occur in the brain and also improve cognitive function in this disease. In addition to acting as an alternative fuel, ketones mimic some of the effects of insulin and are also anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is another key feature affecting the Alzheimer’s brain.

Toxicity studies have already been conducted of the ketone ester in people showing there are no adverse effects and it has been approved by the FDA as “Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS)”. Funding is now urgently needed to mass produce this ketone ester and conduct human clinical trials.

Here is a link to the story:

This story spawned a similar TV story on ABC Action News that aired in the Tampa Bay area.  I will post a link when I receive it.

Sorry, I have not posted here much lately!  I have been more active on Facebook.  Just look up Mary Newport and ask to be friends.

The second edition of my book was released a couple of months ago.  There is a link to order from Amazon on my website www.coconutketones.com.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT on Cholesterol, ApoE4, Statins, Beta Amyloid and Alzheimer’s

Here is a link to a very thorough and highly researched article by Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT discussing the importance of fat and cholesterol, how they work in the brain, why statin use may be counterproductive for people at risk for and dealing with Alzheimer’s, the function of beta amyloid and why a high-fat diet may be beneficial.  I found this especially enlightening in its explanation of how cholesterol is packaged as it is transported throughout the body, and what it is packaged within LDL particles, for example, may be a surprise.

Dr. Seneff has written many other similar articles of great interest to those concerned with cholesterol, statins, Alzheimer’s, autism and other neurodegenerative diseases, many of which can be downloaded from her homepage. http://people.csail.mit.edu/seneff/
