Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a ketone body produced by the liver, from fat, for energy when glucose isn’t available. It ultimately becomes the body and brain’s primary source of energy. Since the liver naturally produces BHB during ketosis, the process can take quite some time, often resulting in symptoms of fatigue, hunger (cravings for sugar, a faster energy source), and mental cloudiness (sometimes called the 'low-carb flu' or the 'Keto Flu'). That’s why supplementing BHB on a keto diet can have a positive impact.
How Does It Work?
BHB, a naturally occurring energy substrate, is the transport form of ketone bodies. BHB mineral salts, such as BHB sodium, calcium, and magnesium are hydrolyzed to free BHB and free metal ions upon ingestion. BHB then travels to the brain and muscles through the blood stream. Once in the cell, BHB is converted into acetoacetate, then to acetyl CoA, to enter the citric acid cycle and generate AT

I don't feel deprived AND I'm losing the weight that harms my self-esteem. In just 30 days, I lost 10 pounds, but it looks like I lost more because I also shaved 2" off my waist and 2" off my hips! I was told not to gauge progress by only looking at the scale and that was great advice - You can lose inches without losing weight!

I truly enjoyed the Keto 30 journey! I was a little hesitant with the meal replacement shake, thinking it would still leave me hungry but the taste was amazing and I was able to stay full and stay satisfied while hitting my macros! I lost 4lbs and 12 inches! I feel incredible and my mental clarity increased!
