Introducing HVMN Ketone: the world's first ketone ester drink. It's clinically validated to improve training, recovery, and performance.

Our technology originated from a DARPA program to enhance warfighter performance in mentally and physically demanding missions. After a decade of collaboration with Oxford and NIH, HVMN Ketone is now publicly available.

Each pocket-sized bottle of HVMN Ketone contains a full single serving of 25g pure ΔG™ Ketone Ester.

Performance

Go stronger, longer.

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.

Recovery

Recover so you can do it again.

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.

Post-workout, taking HVMN Ketone could expedite the resynthesis of glycogen (by 60%) and protein (by 2x), which allows faster recovery3,4. So you can get back in the saddle and do it again.

The feeling was like being in the world of my own, very concentrated and focused on what I do. I could do it to the best of my ability and push for longer in the high performance level.

A practical upgrade for any athlete.
Fits into any pre/post-workout nutrition strategy.

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.

Works immediately.

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 outplays the competition.

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 minutes2,5,7This 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.

I had never experienced anything like the feeling about 20 minutes or so into the test. Seemingly without any extra effort, the speed just kept increasing and far from weakening I felt like I was getting stronger and stronger. It’s a feeling and performance I will always remember.

Instructions

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.
