HVMN Ketone rapidly raises your blood BHB concentrations.
BHB is a ketone that can provide energy for your brain and body. BHB is called a 'super fuel' because:
- It gets into your cells quickly. It does not need any hormones to get into the cell or into the site of energy production in the mitochondria.
- Because BHB is a small molecule, its breakdown is simple and rapid.
- When it is being used to for energy (ATP) formation, BHB uses the same amount of oxygen but increases the energy stored in the ATP molecule. This means that the muscles using ATP made with BHB can do more work for the same oxygen (see source).
