The Power of Ketones!

Ketogenic diets have been used
therapeutically for the
treatment of
epilepsy since the 1920s.
Today armed with even more
scientific
evidence, many practitioners
have
continued using Ketogenic diets
as
nutritional therapies for
obesity,
neurological disorders and even
some
cancers.
What got me really
excited over
the last couple years was using
this
powerful metabolic therapy for
an
expanding range of applications,
including neurological diseases,
cancer
and performance applications.
Many people
are also choosing to live
Ketogenic
lifestyles based on the science
of the
potential benefits for Health
performance and possibly even
fat loss.
Joining us today to help us
understand
more about the power of Ketones
is Dr.
Andi Cappitelli welcome
Dr. Andi.
Thanks
for having me.
Thank you so
much for
being here today.
Let’s jump
right in.
What exactly are Ketones and how
do they
work.
Within our body, we have
three
macronutrients.
We have
carbohydrates
which are really great for an
instant
source of fuel in the body we
have
protein which helps build muscle
and
then we have fat when our body
breaks
down fats in our liver.
It
creates these
little molecules called ketone
bodies,
which then move into our blood
and
circulate through the body to
whichever
organ system use them as a
source of
fuel.
We only do that when
there’s a lack
of glucose or sugar in our
system.
What
does eating a Ketogenic diet
look like?
Right, it’s a very different
from the
standard American diet.
We’re
so used to
really high sugar foods.
Foods
that spike
our blood sugar, spike our
insulin and so
we get energy rises and crashes
that go
along with that.
With the
Ketogenic diet,
it’s actually a very high fat
diet so at
least 70% of your diet comes
from high
Healthy fats, moderate protein
and very
low carbohydrates so less than
10
percent of your diet or under
about 50
grams of carbs per day.
So quite a quite a shift from
what most
people are used to consuming.
Everyone is
so used to low-fat, no-fat, so
it’s really
getting that, mind… of
switching your
mind and that mind frame to
embrace the
fats and really understand the
benefits
that fats have for you in your
body and
that eating fat will not make
you fat.
Well, I know that endurance
athletes
really love burning energy this
way.
Because they feel like it
maximizes
their performance.
How so
exactly?
So in the past
athletes are very sugar fueled.
We’ve
heard a lot about carb loading
and
things like that but now we’re
seeing
athletes are moving more towards
that
Ketogenic state, because it
gives such a
great source of fuel, really
great for
the brain, for mood, for
concentration but
also helps a lot with endurance
so and
also the research is showing
from a
muscle stem plet, helps to build
and
maintain muscle mass, so there’s
a lot of
benefit for athletes.
Are there
any other
benefits aside from you know
maximizing
their energy supply?
Absolutely, so
because the diet is moving to a
lower
carbohydrate higher fat diet the
first
thing we see are changes in
blood
glucose levels and insulin
levels.
So
we’re going to see the insulin
levels go
down, we’re seeing improvements
and
insulin sensitivity changes in
metabolic
syndrome markers like
cholesterol and so
improvements in HDL cholesterol
and LDL,
even changes in blood sugar
levels and
we also know that Ketones can
impact our
hunger hormones are
letpin ghrelin.
So we’re seeing changes in food
cravings
and our sense of satiety or
desire to
eat so a lot of really great
benefits.
iIt
sounds like a Ketogenic
lifestyle can be
difficult for some, so do you
have
anything that will increase the
level of
Ketones in your body?
Absolutely and
you’re right it can be quite
difficult
for some people to follow those,
the
strict guidelines of the
Ketogenic diet
and in the past that was really
the only
way to get Ketones into our
system or
into our blood but recently in
the past
few years we now have exogenous
ketones.
So we have keto OS by proof,
it as
an exogenous ketone supplement.
Where you
can actually drink the Ketones
allowing
your blood levels of Ketones to
increase
so puts you into a state of
ketosis even
if you’re not following a
Ketogenic diet
and if you do follow a Ketogenic
diet it
really does help to support that
transition in the body as well
well.
We’re going to actually be
meeting in
just a little bit with Brian
Underwood
who is the CEO of Pruvit,
who’s got lots to say about
these type
of Ketones.
So stay with us and
we’ll be right back.

Welcome back to Access Health.
We’re here
with Dr. Andi Campitelli and
we’ve just
welcomed Brian Underwood CEO
of Pruvit.
Welcome Brian, so tell me a
little bit
about Pruvit and how you’ve
managed to
bring Ketones to the market?
When we
started Pruvit the focus was
how can
we introduce evidence based
products and
programs to help people become a
better
version of themselves and that’s
when we
found the technology of Ketones
and some
of the research that Dr.
Dominique
D’Agostino was doing.
Our
product is
actually utilized as a patent
that he
patented through some of his
research
through Ketones or Ketogenic
diet at the
University of South Florida.
Tell me a
little bit about what we have
here today?
Well, you know our products were
inspired
and formulated to just help
support the
keto lifestyle or for anyone
that’s
looking for a greater fuel
source.
It’s
really simple to take.
We
wanted to make
it convenient so you have little
packets
that you can take with you
during the day.
I generally suggest taking it
first
thing in the morning, to start
your day.
If you’re new and you’ve never
had them
before start with one serving in
the
morning and we also have a keto
cream
that you can start with.
Take
it in
the morning, see how you feel
but
generally I like to do it twice
a day so
first thing in the morning when
you wake
up and then in the afternoon
when you
feel that energy dip, kind of
around
three o’clock.
Brian where can
we find
more information about Ketogenic
and
