IN THIS “UPGRADE SPOTLIGHT” EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™…Metabolic biochemist Latt Mansor, Ph.D., joins the show from H.V.M.N. (Health Via Modern Nutrition), where he leads research for the company. He’s an expert in metabolism who consults with elite sport, military, clinical and research organizations.
As a key biomarker of metabolic health, ketones are a source of fuel for your brain and body. They’re different from glucose and fat—and more efficient. Learning about the different kinds of ketones and how they work can help you both understand and harness their power. This discussion explains exogenous ketones, BDO-specific ketones BHB and ketone esters. You’ll also find out how to measure your ketones and why it’s important.
Ketones have been shown to be anti-inflammatory. Another benefit happens during exercise. The increase in your ketone levels directly increases BDNF (brain-derived nootropic factor). When you raise ketones, you have a more flexible brain.
Latt gets into the research behind H.V.M.N.’s development of drinkable ketones to improve performance. Ketone-IQ™ give you advantages like:
- Mental clarity and cognitive benefits
- Oxygen efficiency
- Sustained energy
- Performance, endurance and recovery
- Weight management and improved metabolic health
