What are Ketone Supplements?
Ketone supplements are products that can be taken that will increase ketone production. There are supplements such as coconut oil that contain Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) that convert to ketones (Beta-Hydroxybutyrate) in the body. Often times consuming Coconut / MCT oil can cause some GI discomfort until the body is efficient at processing the fats.
A new technology has recently been made available to the public that allows us to drink ketones / Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) that within 30 mins will increase ketone levels to a therapeutic level with little if any GI discomfort. These supplements are exogenous ketones, meaning we are putting ketones into our body instead of relying on our bodies to create its own ketones.
Both of these ketone supplements have been found to be beneficial. I currently consume both and recommend them both highly. I’m extremely excited and passionate about the advancements in the exogenous ketone supplementation.
