What are Ketones?
Ketones are high-performance energy cells naturally created by our liver in certain conditions when our body is at peak performance.
Our liver breaks down fuel from our food and converts it into substances that can easily be transported by the blood.
- When our body is converting sugar or carbs into fuel it creates blood sugar
- When our body is converting fat into fuel is creates ketones
Ketones are a more efficient type of fuel – they significantly boost muscle and brain performance and positively impact our hormone balance and body functions.
These are ketones that are manufactured within our body through a process called ketogenesis.
When our body is producing ketones directly from fat, we can be said to be in a state of ketosis.
Sadly, this state of elevated mental and physical performance is not easy to achieve – it normally only occurs during and after intense exercise, or after some weeks or months of strictly following a low-carb high-fat ‘keto’ diet or fasting (the time to achieve ketosis varies according to your body and level of exercise).
Recent breakthroughs in science allow the manufacture of ‘nature identical’ ketones that can be dissolved in water to drink.
The word exogenous means they are made outside our body.
There are various types of exogenous ketones, each with different characteristics, quality and cost. The one that best for you depends on your body, lifestyle and goals.
It’s important to get advice from a health coach or ketone expert to help you choose the right ketone product according to your personal goals.
