What Exogenous Ketones do and what they don't

Ketone supplements like exogenous ketones are often misunderstood 🤔 The primary benefit of using exogenous ketones is to help you get into ketosis. ⠀

Exogenous ketones do:⠀

✅ Help you avoid “keto flu” – When transitioning into ketosis, your body may experience side effects like bloating, headaches, irritability, and fatigue. Exogenous ketones can make this transition much smoother, eliminating “keto flu” entirely.⠀
✅ Give you a dietary “wiggle room” – If you need to consume a large amount of carbohydrates, thus “breaking keto”, exogenous ketones can be taken to ensure that your body does not exit a ketogenic state.⠀
✅ Increase athletic performance – A study by Peter Attia, M.D. has indicated that exogenous ketone supplements can improve stamina and power output during prolonged physical activity.⠀

Exogenous ketones do not:⠀

❌ Help you lose weight on their own.⠀
❌ Allow you to eat massive amounts of carbohydrates and stay in ketosis.⠀
❌ Let you replace a healthy, low-carb, balanced diet.⠀

We recommend taking exogenous ketones when you are getting back into ketosis and supplementing your diet with a scoop or two of exogenous ketones on days when you are going to be working out especially hard. The added energy boost from exogenous ketones can help you reduce muscular fatigue, and work harder for a longer period of time.⠀
