Ketone salts contain BHB bound to mineral ions, creating a balanced electrolyte formulation with a superior fuel energy molecule. 

The main ingredient in KETOSTART is Beta-Hydroxybutyrate /BHB/

The most abundant of the ketone bodies, beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), serves as an alternative fuel source to glucose and free fatty acids. It has been demonstrated that burning ketones, such as BHB, can yield more ATP (cellular energy currency) per unit oxygen, compared to glucose. In fact, ketones can generate 27% more energy than glucose. They have a “higher metabolic efficiency,” and have a greater “heat of combustion”, meaning they release more energy per molecule. In other words, the e.g. muscle tissue become more efficient, requiring less O2 for the same amount of mechanical work.

In addition, when our mitochondria are hard at work supplying energy in the form of ATP, reactive oxygen species (ROS) are made, and these molecules contribute to what is called “oxidative stress,” which puts both the mitochondria and other cell components, including our DNA, at risk for damage. Ketones have been shown to suppress the production of mitochondrial ROS, as well as help our cellular antioxidant defense systems to disarm ROS before they can cause damage.

So, when people are referring to ketones as a cleaner, more superior fuel source, they are often referring to their capacity to generate greater amounts of ATP and emit less (potentially damaging) by-products naturally produced during mitochondrial energy metabolism.

BHB can also be produced outside of the body and taken as a supplement, these are called “exogenous” ketones. Normally, BHB is synthesized in the liver from fatty acids and it serves as an essential carrier of energy from the liver to peripheral tissues when the supply of glucose is too low for the body's energetic needs, such as during periods of prolonged exercise, starvation, or absence of dietary carbohydrates. Research shows that BHB is not only a passive carrier of energy, but also has cellular signaling functions. These signaling functions of BHB work at the cell surface and inside the cells too, which can affect, for example, gene expression (epigenetic gene regulation), lipid metabolism, neuronal function, and metabolic rate.


Balanced electrolytes to complement a healthy lifestyle



Ultimately, electrolytes are necessary for normal body functions, including heartbeat, brain function, muscle contraction and relaxation, and so much more. The need for supplementation increases when we cut carbs while transitioning to or following the ketogenic diet since the hormone insulin (which is suppressed on a ketogenic diet) plays a vital role in the kidney’s regulation of electrolyte levels, more specifically, sodium levels. When insulin levels fall, the kidneys retain less water and excrete more sodium in the urine, which can cause other minerals to become imbalanced. The ketogenic diet can also lead to increased water loss through glycogen loss (stored glucose). Every gram of glycogen stores around 3-4 grams of water, flushed out as glycogen is burned for energy, carrying electrolytes out with it. It is well-known that a ketogenic diet can lead to increased sodium excretion and water loss through the urine, which is associated with unwanted symptoms, such as fatigue, muscle cramps, and headaches, commonly called as “keto flu”.
