How does goBHB work?
Mechanism of action of Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB)
Before we talk about the BHB mechanism, you need to know how we get energy.
And how important ketosis is in the process.
3 energy sources
Mainly sugars and starches. Your body breaks down most sugars and starches into glucose, a simple sugar that the body can use to feed its cells. 1 gram of carbohydrate contains 4 calories
Fat is a concentrated source of energy, 1 gram of fat contains 9 calories. Fats break into fatty acids and glycerol.Cheese, nuts,EPA, DHA, oils such as MCT and olive are the common fat sources.
Protein, composed of amino acids, is essential to building muscle mass.Your connective tissues and skins are all built of protein. Egg, milk,meat are the most common sources.
