Ketone Ester Could Be A New Human Fuel That Isn’t Carbs, Fat, Or Protein, And May Cure Diabetes
If you’re hitting the gym or bicycling around town your body needs fuel. To power you through your day you’ll need a human fuel source. Now, scientists believe they have discovered a fourth human fuel that isn’t a carbohydrate, fat, or protein. Scientists are hopeful that ketone ester could be another human fuel source that won’t make you fat like carbs and could cure diabetes by regulating spikes in sugar levels.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Oxford are excited about ketone ester. The researchers found that a single drink of ketone ester regulates blood sugar by reducing spikes in sugar levels. The study, which was published this month in the Journal of Physiology, they tested 20 healthy men and women aged 18 to 35. Participants fasted overnight then half drank a ketone ester made by HVMN, a San Francisco-based company that specializes in nootropics.
