Strategies to Augment Ketosis- Variations in Ketone Metabolism


This study is being done to see how individuals respond to a ketone ester (KE) across different age groups and health statuses. With the ketogenic diet becoming more popular, research on ketones (a molecule created when fat is broken down in the body) has grown as well. 

These findings will be used to help develop future research studies and help others to pick the right doses of ketone supplement.
