Ketosis is a metabolic process that occurs in the body. When the body lacks carbohydrates to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. In this process by burning fat, the body mainly produces beta-hydroxybutyrate ketones (BHB). Many cells in the body prefer to use glucose for fuel. When your body doesn’t have enough glucose to fuel these cells, levels of the hormone insulin drop, causing fatty acids to be released from the body in large quantities. Many of these fatty acids are transported to the liver, where they are oxidized and converted to ketones, also known as ketone bodies. These are then used as an alternative energy source throughout the body. Unlike fatty acids, ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier and fuel your brain in the absence of glucose.

In addition to providing a long-lasting source of energy, ketones — and BHB in particular — may help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which are thought to play a role in the development of many chronic diseases.


Additionally, there are a number of established and potential benefits to being in nutritional ketosis. Regulates appetite: One of the first things people often notice when they are in a state of ketosis is that they don’t feel hungry as often. In fact, research has shown that a state of ketosis suppresses your appetite. Studies also show a decrease in ghrelin, the so-called “hunger hormone”.
