Being in nutritional or therapeutic ketosis is important because it is a metabolic state where the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. This occurs when the body lacks glucose, its primary source of energy, and instead switches to using stored fats as a fuel source. When the body is in a state of ketosis, it produces ketones, which are byproducts of the breakdown of fats.

Start with Science

Exogenous ketones are ketone supplements that provide your body with ketones from an external source, as opposed to those produced endogenously (from within the body) through the process of ketosis. When you consume exogenous ketones, the goal is to elevate the levels of ketones in your bloodstream, which can result in several potential health benefits, including improved energy and focus, enhanced athletic performance, and greater fat burning.

The most common form of exogenous ketones are ketone salts, which are composed of a ketone body (such as beta-hydroxybutyrate) combined with a mineral, typically sodium, calcium, or magnesium. A second form of ketones are ketone acids which have the benefit of a lower mineral load such as sodium. Another form of exogenous ketones is ketone esters, which can also rapidly raise ketone levels, but they are also more expensive and have a less palatable taste.

It's important to note that while exogenous ketones can provide benefits for many people. Individualization of a optimized ketosis level for a particular clinical circumstance is best accomplished through a consultation with a trained physician or allied healthcare professional.

The Keto5 Adjustable Targeted Adjuvant Ketosis System known as ATAK System only available through professional healthcare service providers can safely guide you to your best ketosis.

Some potential benefits of being in ketosis include:

  • Weight loss: When the body is in ketosis, it burns fat for energy, leading to weight loss.

  • Improved cognitive function: Some studies have shown that being in ketosis may improve brain function, memory, and focus.

  • Better blood sugar control: Ketosis can help regulate blood sugar levels, which may be beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes.

  • Reduced inflammation: Some studies suggest that being in ketosis may help reduce inflammation in the body.

  • Increased energy levels: By burning fat for energy, the body can maintain stable energy levels throughout the day.
