What are Exogenous Ketones?

Exogenous ketones (Beta hydroxybyutyrate or BHB Salts) are synthetic ketones and come in the form of salts as the Beta-hydroxybutyrate chemical binds with salt.

Ketones are the alternative to glucose and they are the original energy source for the body. When the body is starved of glucose and carbohydrates, the liver converts stored body fat and nutritional fat into endogenous (in body) ketones which are then used to fuel the body. Supplementing with exogenous ketones gives you additional ketone energy as well as many other benefits listed below.

Why use exogenous ketones?

The majority of people use exogenous ketones to catalyse fat burning, increase their cognitive focus, and improve their physical and athletic performance. Exogenous Ketones put your body into ketosis within 15-60 minutes from consumption.

Ketosis is beneficial for a myriad of reasons, namely that it reduces inflammation in the body. This can alleviate brain fog, headaches,chronic illnesses, seizures, joint pain and is even linked to curing cancer. Ketosis increases cognitive focus and physical energy, balances hormones and blood sugar levels and can catalyze fat loss.

The list just goes on! Read more here.

How do you supplement with exogenous ketones?

The BHB Salt powder form of exogenous ketones can be consumed with hot or cold drinks and even added into food recipes. We always recommend starting with a half-portion heavily diluted with iced water or iced unsweetened almond milk.

For boosting physical or mental performance: Just take the exogenous ketone salts 30 minutes before you plan to begin and even during longer workouts.

For catalysing fat loss: They can be taken as a meal or snack replacement.

If you also combine them with MCT Powder, you will achieve an even longer lasting effect with further elevated blood ketone levels.

Kegenix Prime

Kegenix Prime discontinued the original sachets (late 2017) and have now released tubs of Kegenix Prime and have just re-released the sachets. Kengenix Prime contains 6g GoBHB (Beta hydroxybutyrate) an 4g of GoBHB MCT powder per serving. Even though the actual BHB salt content is moderate, because it has been blended with MCT powder, it makes for a very effective ketone elevating supplement and is now one of our best selling supplements.

Available in refreshing orange and lemon flavours. Unlike some ketone supplements, these are not too sweet.

    Hi Guys, When will Pruvit Splash be available? And the amped?
    SO far, I’m very pleased with the KetoBlitz, Orange Dream Pruvit and KetoLogic Cucumber & Lime.
    Thanks, JB

      Hi John! We’ll have Pruvit Splash in next week! Amped is intermittently released by Pruvit so I can’t say when it will next be available. Glad you like the Blitz, Orange and Ketologic! Sara 🙂

    • Sara says:

      Hi Leala, Of course! Essentially, they contain the same bhb salts (exogenous ketones), just in a different blend. So that is absolutely fine. Just be aware that the more bhb salts you have the more water you’ll need to drink to keep your hydration levels up. Any other qs, let me know. Sara 🙂
