The American Brain Council has named VitaNav’s Kenetik Ketone Drink its “Preferred Product” in the category. A recent study that the Council commissioned notes that Kenetik tasted better, cost less per serving and was easier to use than competing products. In addition, the study found that Kenetik was as effective or more so than other drinks at boosting ketone levels in the body and that it does not require a user to get acclimated to it.
The investigational study was designed to determine the best products currently available for promoting ketosis. The ABC said, “After reviewing the recommendations of some of the top experts in Brain Health (like Dale Bredesen, MD from UCLA, who recently reversed cognitive decline in 9 of 10 advanced Alzheimer’s patients, and who is a major advocate of ketosis), reviewing comparison studies on more than a dozen of the best products in this category, and conducting our own in-house comparison trial with 20 seniors, ages 57 to 90, we have chosen to endorse Kenetik, as our ‘Preferred Product’ in this category.”
Ketosis is the condition the body enters when there are not enough carbohydrates, e.g., glucose, available to burn for energy. During ketosis, the body burns fats, and ketones are the result. This provides a clean, potent alternative energy source for the brain. Historically, accessing ketones as an energy source required fasting or a ketogenic diet to achieve. Research has shown, however, that consumption of exogenous ketones can induce nutritional ketosis and provide energy from ketones on any diet.
The American Brain Council’s report cited numerous benefits to the brain and central nervous system that ketones can produce. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Crohn’s patients could benefit from ketone drinks along with those fighting ALS, MS, diabetes and hypertension according to the ABC.
Peter Bayne, co-founder of VitaNav Inc. said, “The benefits of ketosis have become clear to researchers, and the fact that exogenous ketones can produce the condition in the human body is important. Fasting or following a ketogenic diet long enough to achieve ketosis is hard, and it’s just not practical…
