Introducing HVMN Ketone: the world’s first and only ketone ester drink. It’s clinically validated to improve performance, recovery, and metabolism.
ΔG® ketone ester technology was invented by Dr. Kieran Clarke of Oxford and Dr. Richard Veech of the NIH through DARPA’s “Metabolic Dominance” program. The goal was to enhance warfighter physical and cognitive performance, and the ground-breaking results were spun out via University of Oxford technology transfer company TΔS. After 15+ years of R&D, ketone esters are now available exclusively through HVMN.
HVMN and TΔS are proud to introduce HVMN Ketone, a truly unique metabolic performance drink. Each bottle of HVMN Ketone contains a full single serving of 25g pure ΔG® Ketone Ester.
Ketones are a fundamentally different fuel source from the carbohydrates and fats your cells typically use for energy.
When taken before or during exercise, D-βHB from HVMN Ketone is 28% more efficient than carbohydrates alone — meaning your body does more work with the same amount of oxygen1.
Because HVMN Ketone affects metabolism in a fundamental way, there are compounding benefits that add up to superior performance. Athletes go ~2% further in a 30 minute time trial2.
Athletes using HVMN Ketone show a decrease in the breakdown of intramuscular glycogen and protein during exercise, compared to carbohydrates alone2.
During workouts, D-βHB from HVMN Ketone are anti-inflammatory, and reduce exercise-induced oxidative stress — the buildup of free radicals that can cause damage to the cells.
HVMN Ketone provides some of the benefits of ketosis on top of any athlete’s diet, complementing your current intake of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Add HVMN Ketone to your standard pre- and post-workout nutrition that you already know works for you.
HVMN Ketone takes effect within 30 minutes. HVMN Ketone is 98.24% ketones plus water — at that unique level of purity, it quickly and effectively delivers the optimal ketone levels for accelerated athletic performance2,5. It can take up to 3-4 days of fasting to raise blood D-βHB to this concentration6.
HVMN Ketone gets you into ketosis higher and faster than ever before. HVMN Ketone typically gets a 140-160lb person to 3-6mmol/L in minutes2,5,7. This range of ketones is clinically proven to enhance performance2.
HVMN Ketone contains no salt, fat, or carbohydrates, and it’s the only ketone that is classified as a food by the FDA. HVMN Ketone delivers 100% natural form of ketone bodies (known chemically as D-βHB) directly into your brain and body. Everything you want; nothing you don’t want.
Consumption elevates blood beta-hydroxybutyrate levels without a salt, acid, or fat load
Taken along with carbohydrates:
Decreases appetite and ghrelin5
Improve cognitive function8
Activate longevity signalling pathways9
HVMN Evidence Grading
We share full knowledge of our understanding of the effects of HVMN products and their ingredients. Specifically, we indicate the grade of evidence underpinning HVMN products:
Theoretical effect or in vitro evidence
Animal model evidence of effects
Early human evidence of ingredient effects
High-quality human evidence of ingredient effects
Human study of product as sold
† Daily value not established.
Percent daily values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
Ingredients: Water, D-betahydroxybutyrate Ester (ΔG™ Ketone Ester). Contains less than 2% of Stevia Leaf Extract, Natural Flavors, Malic Acid, Potassium Sorbate & Potassium Benzoate (for freshness).
For performance, take one bottle of HVMN Ketone 30-60 minutes before training or a race, with your normal pre-workout carbs (optimal = ~60g/h of carbs). For extended exercise, re-up every ~90-120 minutes.
For recovery, take one bottle of HVMN Ketone 30-60 minutes after your workout with your normal post-workout carbs and protein.
If you are taking HVMN Ketone but not planning on exercising, we would recommend taking it at least 30 minutes before a meal OR 60 minutes after, to make sure the food in your stomach does not slow down the uptake of BHB.
