Understanding Ketones

 

Also known as ketone bodies, ketones are produced as the result of the body breaking down fat for energy, which occurs when carbohydrate levels are kept low. The body usually uses glucose as a source of energy so when carbs are decreased, the glycogen and blood sugar levels are lowered as well. The body will then look for another method to produce energy, so it turns to fat as a fuel source.

The breaking down of fat is also known as beta-oxidation and the result is the formation of ketones. The ketones are then used by the body and brain as fuel. Being in this state is known as ketosis (And your brain loves running on ketones).

Acetoacetate (AcAc)

• Result from breaking down the fatty acids
• Will become either BHB or Acetone

Acetone

• A by-product of AcAc, simplest ketone body and least used.
• Quickly removed from the body if not needed for energy.
• Is expelled from the body through breath or waste

Beta-hydroxybutyric (BHB)

• A formation of the AcAc, ( BHB is not technically a ketone due to its chemical structure, but in the context of the ketogenic diet it’s considered to be one of the three ketones )
• Can be used as an exogenous ketone supplement like KETO//OS to assist the body entering a state of ketosis.
