BHB Beta-hydroxybutyrate (Sodium)
What is Sodium Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB)?
Beta hydroxybutyrate also known as BHB or Keto BHB, is a mineral salt and a stable, naturally occurring metabolite formed during metabolism and fat digestion. Ketone bodies are water-soluble molecules that contain the ketone groups produced from fatty acids by the liver (ketogenesis).
Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) Benefits †
Beta hydroxybutyrate, BHB, can help fuel the heart, muscles, and brain during periods of low carbohydrate intake. Its energy-boosting properties can aid in prolonged exercise and mental function. Sodium combined with BHB may help with muscle maintenance, nerve function, and fluid balance.
Since ketones can cause the body to lose electrolytes at a more rapid rate, those on the ketogenic diet may benefit from additional sodium intake.
