BHB is a molecule that is considered a ketone body. It is one of the main molecules that helps your body produce energy in the absence of glucose. This molecule is essential if you’re using your own fat for fuel, or taking BHB as a supplement to increase energy production — essentially to be in nutritional ketosis.
WHERE DOES BHB COME FROM?
ENDOGENOUS BETA-HYDROXYBUTYRATE (your body makes it)
Beta-hydroxybutyrate can be made in the body. Endogenous means your body makes it. Think EN = in.
In this scenario, when your body is done using up a certain substrate to create energy (acetyl-CoA) after eating carbohydrates, it will start to find creative ways to get the job done. If you didn’t do this, you’d be dead after fasting for a very short period of time. The liver will start making BHB from long chain and medium chain fatty acids that are liberated from your fat tissue. You are turning fat into fuel.
EXOGENOUS BETA-HYDROXYBUTYRATE (you put it into your body)
Sometimes waiting for your body to make the switch from carbohydrate metabolism to beta-hydroxybutyrate metabolism (aka ketosis), can be an uncomfortable and lengthy process. It can take days, up to two weeks! Another way to get BHB into your system so your body is using “clean” energy is by taking it supplementally. This is an exogenous BHB. Exogenous means you get it from outside of your body. Think EX = exit = outside.
Exogenous BHB is usually attached to some type of other compound (sodium, potassium, calcium, or magnesium) so that your body can process, then cleave the bond between the salt and the BHB. BHB + bound to a salt = BHB salts, which is what most people in the ketosis community call exogenous ketones.
Supplementing with BHB Salts provides many benfits. Some of the most talked about benefits are:
1. It’s a “Super fuel” of your body. Provides instant alertness and energy to the brain.
2. Enhances athletic performance and endurance.
3. Decreases food cravings/increases satiety.
4. Improves insulin sensitivity and normalize blood sugar levels.
5. It is a powerful antioxidant and has a potent muscle-sparing effect.
6. Source of necessary minerals/electrolytes along with the ketones.
