B-Keto Dietary Supplement
B-Epic B-Keto is a dietary supplement with exogenous ketones for fast weight loss during exercise.
B-Keto offers instant fat burning the natural way. After consumption, the product lead to rapid weight loss. The product work when the body is in ketosis and help to convert excess fat into energy, and reduces blood pressure also.
B-Keto contains BHB-BA. The ketone body BHB (β-hydroxybutyrate) is synthesized in the liver from fatty acids and is an important energy carrier from the liver to peripheral tissues when the glucose supply is too low for the body’s energy needs, for example, during periods of prolonged exercise, fasting , or lack of dietary carbohydrates. In addition to its activity as an energy metabolite, BHB is increasingly understood to perform cellular signaling functions.
But BHB-BA is revolutionary Exogenous Ketone fat-burning formulation that provides more advanced pharmacology and incremental scientifically-proven metabolic enhancement over standard BHB.
B-Keto contains dry extract of natural grape also.
How B-Keto works
Dr. Franco Cavalieri, B-Keto formulator, told the following:
“You know that we in our laboratory have been working on bench and in clinical trials for about 11 years and we have peer-reviewed articles. We’re working at the genomic and proteomic level of the cell and the tissues of the body to determine how our cells are responding on B-Keto product. When we talk about inflammation or we talk about ketosis or cell recovery or generation of endogenous or internal antioxidants in the cell we want to know how our genome, how the body is reacting at a cellular level.
That one product brings an aggregate effect of all your cells to create a body effect, the effect on the brain on the body the metabolism and keto. This affects every aspect of your being from the cognitive to the metabolic, to the entire peripheral tissues and I’ll explain how this works.
A lot of you’ve heard about ketogenesis and ketosis and the BHB exogenous ketones that are supplemented in the marketplace.
B-Keto is very different.
We’ve heard about Ketone salts. These ketone bodies that are taken as supplements, but there’s a lot of misinformation, and our published research unraveled this misinformation and misunderstanding. So we have exogenous ketones that we would take supplements as supplements we have endogenous ketones the body’s gonna make.
Now when you go on a ketogenic diet (low carb, high fat) that it’s kind of hard to stay on that ketogenic diet for the first two or three days for most people. The brain wants glucose – and if you limit glucose availability or sugar availability because you’re dropping your carbs, your brain telling you to eat carbs, not the peripheral tissues of your body. So their body can actually use fat as a primary source of energy but what happens is over a period of two or three days the ketones in your bloodstream tend to escalate and what’s happening there is that the body is making ketones from fat. So, your liver through a process called beta oxidation is going to take fat and make ketones. Fat cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. Your peripheral tissues involved in physical activity they can use fat, but the brain cannot. So, the brain needs glucose, or it can use ketones as an alternative source of glucose.
Your brain says go eat carbs, you need carbs, you need to fuel your brain. So, what we do is provide the ketone in the supplemental form so that your brain doesn’t have to wait for serum ketone levels or blood ketone levels to rise high enough from the production in the body. Ketone production in the body is called ketogenesis and that’s what you’re trying to do with the ketogenic diet is to activate ketogenesis so that we increase serum ketone levels in the blood. When ketone levels in the blood are high enough, they cross the blood-brain barrier they go to the neurons in your brain and they can serve as substrates for your brain to make energy.
So, if glucose is not available because that is basically localized in the brain then what happens is that glucose cannot be used by your brain very well and the ketone becomes a secondary nutrition substrate.
But here’s the cool thing your neurons can make up to 38% more ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) using less oxygen with the ketone so that if you have that ketone available then you’re able to function whether it’s cognitive or physical work. You function more efficiently because you need less oxygen.
You can go further, you can run harder because, you have more stamina, you have backup energy and that allows you to function at a greater capacity very amazing concept.
So, the difference now between the regular ketone BHB salt you might see in the marketplace and B-Keto is profound and that profound difference is demonstrated clearly in our research which you will see in the peer-reviewed journals. This discovery reviewed by peers that have allowed it to be published.
So, you can rely on the data now what’s different between B-Keto and regular BHB ketone salts. The key difference is that the beta hydroxybutyrate the ketone itself that we’re supplementing with is coupled to butyrate short chain fatty acid which serves also as a precursor for beta hydroxybutyrate but a signaling agent and this is critically important which changes the entire ballgame here. It’s a signaling agent for the liver to tell it to make ketones.
B-Keto supplies the exogenous ketone same time at the same time we’re supplying the signal to have your body make endogenous internal ketones from your own fat and this is critically important.
What do you with old standard BHB ketone salts is you shut off completely turn off fatty acid oxidation or the burning of fat in your own body? You completely turn off ketogenesis the manufacturing of ketones from your own fat and that voids anything you’re trying to accomplish on the ketogenic diet so if you’re on a ketogenic diet and you’re trying to stimulate ketogenesis you completely turned it off.
When you take b-keto exogenous ketones it’s not a regular exogenous ketone salt what it is the ketone coupled to butyrate. Butyrate is cleaved off goes to the liver tells your body to continue to make ketones even though that ketone is being supplemented and why this is important is because now you’re burning your own fat.
So you take that before a workout you’re burning your own fat from the initialization of your workout and please know if you go on to a cardio workout for instance um it takes you about 15 to 20 minutes before you start burning significant amounts of fat in that activity.
Typically, you’re going to be burning glycogen first for the first 15 minutes. But most people don’t do a cardio session for more than 20 minutes to 30 minutes and so you’re not getting a huge impact on the oxidation or fat burning for that energy unless you take the BKeto right before the activity.
And what happens in that case is that now your body is going to burn fat right from the initialization of your physical activity and your brain’s going to get all the fuel it needs to keep going and you’re going to be using less oxygen during that activity.
With BKeto fat is starting to be eliminated at a very effective rate your brain is functioning at a completely different frequency your recall capacity whether you’re studying or whether you’re just functioning normally in the day is amazing because the brain is heightened.
One of the key issues when it comes to dementias and cognitive deficits forgetfulness things like that is the failure for those neurons to be using glucose efficiently and it’s being now labeled type 3 diabetes.
You know there’s type 1 diabetes where the body’s not making enough insulin or any insulin at all because of damage that’s caused to the pancreas the beta cells in particular, there’s type 2 diabetes that’s more lifestyle related or it can be genetic there are genetic anomalies of the protein insulin that can contribute to type 2 diabetes where you have insulin resistance, and now type 3 diabetes where glucose is not being absorbed very effectively in the brain. BKeto reduces a rick of type 3 diabetes.
It’s either a cause or a consequence of dementia and the other activities that are current dementia. But by using a product like B-Keto you actually improve neuronal efficiency and even if you do develop dementias and things like that the ill effects and the late stage effects are prolonged so you don’t feel them until you’re very old and you may not ever even feel them before you pass away.
We’re talking about optimizing the metabolism overall so that the foods you eat the foods your body of the cells absorb the nutrients that they require the substrates that they need to make ATP are more efficiently available. So you’re living at a completely different level and frequency of life and you’re able to then point all this metabolic efficiency at whatever goal you’re trying to achieve, whether it’s weight loss, whether it’s just improved cognitive capacity, whether it’s just improve lifestyle and life quality.
So in my opinion this is one of the most amazing products because we’re able to affect the core metabolism improve insulin efficiency improve lipolysis the ability to actually burn fat fatty acid oxidation.
Now you have the ketone coupled to the butyrate acid the short chain fatty acid you actually activate and prolong fatty acid oxidation and ketogenesis the body’s ability to make ketones for the brain.
Your metabolism will work with you towards burning calories and work with you towards your goals whatever those goals are.“
Blackberry Chicken + Spinach Salad Enjoy this SIMPLE, yet GORGEOUS end-of-summer salad today! Sweet + Tart. Savory + Sweet. All of our FAVORITE flavor & texture combinations! Briny feta, crunchy pecans, ripe-juicy sweet berries, with a tiny bite thanks to red onion. We have vitamin C. We have antioxidants. We have fiber. Let’s EAT!
