The purpose of ketone supplements is to provide your body with extra ketones and to aid in the transition to achieving a state of ketosis. If you're fasting, exogenous ketones can help alleviate the headaches, low energy, and cravings that typically accompany a fasted state.
If you've eaten too many carbohydrates, exogenous ketone supplements can help you get back into ketosis quicker than carb restriction alone. Ketone supplements can also be taken before meals to reduce cravings or before a workout for a boost of energy.
Exogenous ketones, when paired with a low-carb ketogenic diet, can also provide the following benefits:
- Increased mental focus*
- Quicker weight loss*
- Reduced hunger*
- Enhanced cognitive performance*
- Lower inflammation*
- Less risk of disease*
- Better regulated blood glucose levels*
