WHAT ARE BHB SALTS OR EXOGENOUS BHB?

Keto-BHB-Supplement

There are two ways to get exogenous ketones in the market: BHB salts and ketone esters.

Ketone esters are the raw form of BHB, with nothing else added. However, this supplement is expensive, tastes terrible, and can affect the gastrointestinal system.

Enter: BHB salts.

BHB salts are a novel and effective supplement created in a lab to help people enter and sustain ketosis. 

They’re a mix of:Exogenous BHB, Mineral salts such as potassium, calcium, sodium, or magnesium, or amino acids like lysine and creatine.

The mineral salts added to exogenous BHB help to:

Buffer the intensity of the free fatty acids;

Improve taste;

Lower the incidence of stomach issues;

Make it mixable with food and drinks;

When you take BHB salts, they’re broken down during digestion and release free BHB into your bloodstream. BHB then travels toward your organs, where it starts ketolysis to create energy.

Basically, you enjoy the perks of BHB right away without having to wait for your body to raise ketone levels.

Don’t be afraid of salts like sodium. While it’s true excess sodium is harmful, people on a ketogenic diet can benefit from consuming more mineral salts because ketones make you lose more electrolytes in your urine.

It’s recommended that keto-ers add more electrolytes to their food, such as sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. BHB salts can help with that supplementation.
