Drinking Ketones Research

Ketones Research

The ketogenic diet, which is commonly referred to as the “the keto diet”, is a diet that is high in fat and very low in carbohydrates and results in a metobolic state called ketosis, in which the body burns fat instead of carbohydrate as its primary source of energy. This page is dedicated to the Ketogenic Diet, Nutritional Ketosis, and Exogenous Ketones research!  The science behind exogenous ketones, especially the patented formula by Pruvit, is the Bio-Hacking solution we have been looking for!
