Supplements – Keto Hacks – Keto Before 6 – B3


So let’s look at the supplements that
are available now as “keto hacks.” Now the first and foremost to talk about is of
course, exogenous ketones, exogenous ketones are taking ketone bodies notably
beta-hydroxybutyrate in an oral form as a way to bring ketone bodies in the
blood up. Now this will bring ketones into the blood you can use some of those
ketones for energy, but let’s look at the way that you test.
You’re usually testing by urinary dipsticks showing that you’re spilling
over excess ketones into the urine but what are those ketones that you’re
measuring in the urine? That’s actually acetyl acetate that is a byproduct of
conversion in the liver from beta- hydroxybutyrate to acetyl acetate and
what does that mean? That means that you have not actually fat adapted at a
cellular level, and your cells have not engaged the proper chemistry to be
voraciously feeding on ketones and as a result the excess is flipped into this
form that goes out through the urine. You’re actually detoxifying your excess
ketones instead of using them. Meanwhile you’re
looking at your keto strip and saying, “look I’m deep in ketosis,” but actually
you are not. Okay, so if exogenous ketones represent the least amount of total
engagement into ketosis by your body that means we want to make ketones
ourselves, that leads us into talking about MCTS. So, MCTS are converted in the
liver from a medium chain triglyceride into two little carbon snippets called
ketone bodies. Now just taking a big bolus of MCT will allow you to make your
own ketones, but does that mean that you’re in ketosis?
Does that mean that you’ve got mTOR blocking? Does it mean that you’ve got
autophagy? No it does not. It’s just the easiest way to make a
ketone. You really need to engage at a deep cellular level, and that means
activating these things called nuclear transcription factors. If you hear me
talk about detoxification I advocate activating Nrf2 which brings up chemo
protection. Here we’re using Ppar gamma, and Ppar alpha, and Ppar beta, and
Ppar delta. All part of the Ppar family which is a family of nuclear
transcription factors bringing up transcription of a family of proteins
that turned your body into a fat-burning machine.
