The Effects of Exogenous Ketones on Glucose Tolerance

The ketone body beta-hydroxybutyrate is produced during prolonged fasting or when endogenous carbohydrate stores are depleted and can be used as an alternative fuel source. Exogenous beta-hydroxybutyrate, in the form of a ketone monoester, is proposed to have glucose-lowering potential but this has not been adequately studied. The purpose of this study is to determine whether supplementing with an acute dose of ketone monoester can improve the glycemic response to a high carbohydrate mixed meal in young healthy individuals.
