Whats all this talk about EXOGENOUS KETONES!?
Well my friends, if you are eating a Ketogenic/LCHF diet, you are already familiar with the incredible power of KETONES!
And if you eat ANY other way, have we got good news FOR YOU!
Ketones are a superior fuel source for the body than glucose!
WHAT THE WHAT!!?
Yup! You heard me right!! Lets go over WHY!
WHAT IS KETOSIS?
Ketosis is a metabolic state where the body’s energy supply comes from KETONE BODIES in the blood. This is in contrast to what we might be familiar with where the state of glycolysis is where glucose provides the enrgy source. KETOSIS is characterized by serum concentrations of KETONE BODIES over 0.5mmol with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose.
KETOSIS is in contrast to KETOGENISIS or Nutritional Ketosis, which is the production of ketones in the liver through the process where ketone bodies are produced as a result of fatty acid breakdown. KETONE SUPPLEMENTATION is simply a substitute for KETOGENESIS but, only bioavailability of ketones in the blood for cellular use can create ketosis. Nutritional Ketosis usually begins at 0.5mmol and it is optimized between 2.0mmol and 3.6mmol.
For those of you with friends or family who are Diabetic, Nutritional Ketosis is NOT diabetic KETOACIDOSIS. This is a serious and rare complication where uncontrolled diabetes can produce high levels of BLOOD ACID and ketones in conjunction with high levels of GLUCOSE, usually when blood BHB reached 5-6mmol or above. As a Type 1 Diabetic, I can speak from experience that nutritional ketosis and low carb eating is a huge benefit for my blood sugar control and health.
KETO-ADAPTATION is the process of shifting your metabolism from dependance on glucose being your main source of energy to FAT BASED SOURCES being your fuel! This fat oxidation increases as well as assisting your body in producing enough ketones that can be used as a significant source of FUEL!
