Can Ketones Fuel Cognitive And Physical Performance?

Can Ketones Fuel Cognitive And Physical Performance?

November 20, 2020 6 min read 0 Comments

Exogenous ketone supplementation, precisely in the form of ketone esters, can enhance performance and possibly reduce anxiety-like state. Combining ketone esters with ketone-salts or MCTs may also enhance motor performance. The addition of keto esters to a ketogenic diet may also provide benefit in reducing the long-term elevations in lipid and cholesterol that can arise from a persistent ketogenic diet alone.

Nowadays, the idea of ketone ester diet has already been utilised by nutritional companies like Ketone Aid, which received positive feedback from athletes claiming a boost to their typical performance compared to training without the ketone ester supplementation.

Ketogenic Diet

Carbs vs Fats. Glucose vs Ketones.

November 20, 2020 5 min read 0 Comments

Glucose or Ketones? Carbs or fats? Carbohydrates have been a staple part of meals for centuries, but there is evidence that ketones produce more energy per mole of substrate than glucose, while optimising body composition, cognition and sports performance.

Following a ketogenic diet allows our body to tap into fat stores to produce energy during extended periods of low glucose availability. Burning ketones instead of glucose preserves carbohydrates in muscle. Therefore transitioning the body’s energy dependence from glucose to ketones could be beneficial in the long run, both mentally, and physically.

In a population of 786 Australian elders, higher concentrations of carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin) and vitamin C in plasma were associated with longer Telomere Length, which is positively correlated with longevity.

Health Benefits of Eggs

The Amazing Health Benefits of Eggs according to Dr. Eric Berg

November 07, 2020 5 min read 0 Comments

In this post, Dr. Berg describes the numerous health benefits of eating eggs: One of the key reasons that I consume eggs on a regular basis is not only do I enjoy it, but eggs have the greatest anabolic effect out of all the food options around. Anabolic means that it's contributing to growth. Building muscle protein.

48% of egg actually turns into your body tissue and that's pretty much the highest, not counting breast milk. Moreover, cholesterol and fat in the yolk actually help in the anabolic effect.

Egg whites have really low amounts of essential fatty acids, while egg yolk contains most of the nutrition.
