Calcium Beta-Hydroxybutyrate Facts
Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a dietary supplement ingredient that is self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). BHB raw material is typically supplied as a stable mineral salt, such as BHB sodium, BHB calcium, or BHB magnesium. BHB is a naturally occurring metabolite created during fat digestion and metabolism, known as a ketone body. Much like glucose is the energy molecule derived from carbohydrates/sugars, and amino acids are derived from proteins, ketones are energy molecules derived from fat. BHB is an energy dense molecule that naturally fuels your brain, heart, and muscles during periods of low carbohydrate intake
This elevated β-hydroxybutyrate level is naturally expected, as β-hydroxybutyrate is formed from acetoacetate. The substance can be used as an energy source by the brain when blood glucose is low. Diabetic patients may get their ketone levels tested via urine or blood to show diabetic ketoacidosis.
Some general side effects of your body creating beta-hydroxybutyrate are effectively the lull in time it takes to change from carbohydrate metabolism to fat metabolism, that can take 3-4 days. This can lead to mood swings, exhaustion, and general low energy.
