The Power Exogenous Ketones Play in Our Body
Many people are also choosing to live a ‘Ketogenic lifestyle’ based on the science of the potential benefits for health, performance and possibly even fat loss. Ketones are made in the liver from the breakdown of fats and circulate throughout the blood to be metabolized or used as energy. The body will use glucose up first but upon depletion and more Ketones, you will go into Ketosis.
The Ketogenic diet promotes high levels of healthy fat, moderate protein and very low carbs; it’s very strict but when the shift happens and you start burning fat instead of glucose, you’ve just brought on a more efficient fuel. As it can be challenging to eat a ketogenic diet, exogenous ketones – those ingested from nutritional supplements, like those by Pruvit are used to support a ketogenic diet or used on its own, to keep your body running at peak performance and support stamina, endurance, and recovery.
