Peak Supps Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) powder is bonded with the Ketone Salt Magnesium. It is an unflavoured powder with no colourings or flavourings.
BHB has gained popularity through those aiming to achieve Ketosis. It makes ketosis easier to achieve than a ketogenic diet (which requires long periods of time without consuming carbohydrates). However, BHB generally helps boost ketone levels for short periods of time.
BHB acts as an energy source. It enters the mitochondria of the cell and is converted to acetoacetate, after which it undergoes a reaction where CoA is added. The result is acetoacetyl-CoA, which forms acetone and acetyl-CoA.
Acetyl-CoA progresses into the Krebs cycle and results in the production of ATP, which is one the bodies primary energy systems.
BHB is an exogenous ketone. Exogenous ketones come from an external source since they are not produced in the body. There are a number of exogenous ketone supplements, such as:
- Ketone Salts (e.g. BHB with Magnesium, potassium or sodium)
- Medium chain triglycerides (MCT).
- Ketone Esters
To form the Ketone salt, Peak Supps BHB is bound to Magnesium.
Magnesium is an everyday mineral required for several bodily functions. It contributes to: normal functioning of the nervous system, electrolyte balance, normal energy-yielding metabolism, protein synthesis, muscle function, psychological function, the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and a reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Magnesium can be lost through the body from excessive sweating, caffeinated beverages, carbonated drinks and refined sugar foods.
