With Metagenics Exogenous Ketones, you can induce acute ketosis within just 15 minutes and increase circulating ketone levels for at least an hour - whether to help you on your path to shake off "the keto flu" as you're starting your ketogenic diet; or to restore you to ketosis after 'sinning' by eating too many carbs; or to give you a more efficient source of energy that the brain in particular is able to use, to boost your mental clarity for an exam or presentation, for example (even if you're not on a keto diet).
It sounds too good to be true - eating fat to burn and ultimately lose fat, while also increasing energy levels, endurance, focus, mental clarity, and performance in the process! But that's just what a proper ketogenic diet can do - but it takes a great deal of discipline to adhere to, to achieve and maintain the state of ketosis, where that happens.
Ketones are byproducts of the metabolic breakdown of fatty acids, and can be used to supply an alternate source of cellular energy (rather than from the glucose we get from carbs); if supplied from outside ourselves (rather than from burning our own fat reserves), they are deemed "exogenous."
Metagenics Exogenous Ketones powder provides a whopping 11.7 grams of ketones per serving in a delicious berry blast flavour to fuel your cells by initiating the production of their energy currency, ATP.
