Nutricost has made another addition to their popular Ketone Salts line, an Exogenous Ketone supplement containing Potassium. Potassium Ketone Salts is a blend of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate and Potassium, intended to support electrolyte balance while providing a boost in energy and fat burning.* Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is also associated with enhanced cognitive function and anti-inflammatory properties.
Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is the most important and abundant ketone body, and in the absence of glucose it is the primary source of energy. While Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is naturally occurring, there are several benefits to consuming exogenous sources. For those already in dietary induced ketosis, exogenous ketones can deepen the ketogenic state. Exogenous ketones are also beneficial to help get back into ketosis if you have transitioned into glucose burning from higher carb intake, or want to avoid glycogen depletion.
The reason Beta-Hydroxybutyrate makes such a great impact on cognitive function, is its ability to cross over the brain blood barrier where it is immediately converted into ATP energy. Even for non-athletes, the mental focus boost and clarity is an exceptional reason to take exogenous ketones. And for those who are athletes, or in ketosis, the much needed Potassium is a welcomed addition to help you keep your electrolytes in check.
