By now, you’ve all heard about the benefits of the Ketogenic diet. Once used as a cure for childhood epilepsy, now being sought-after from endurance athletes worldwide. KetoneAid is a legal performance-enhancing sport and brain drink that quickly elevates ketone levels and provides the benefits of ketosis without all of the hardship.
Until recently, exogenous ketones were a multi-thousand dollar investment. While not cheap, KetoneAid is part of the latest line of products specifically developed to enhance performance by providing a dual fueling system. Also known as glycogen sparing, exogenous ketones offer endurance athletes 60-90min of ketone-fueled energy, saving your precious glycogen reserves for when you need them the most. How does it taste? The flavor is named Very Scary Cherry.
While it tastes better than earlier renditions of the product, it still isn’t up to the standards of something that you would purchase from your local juice bar. Most athletes are fine with it knowing that the longterm performance gains outweigh the short term taste discomfort. Here are some of the performance benefits of using KetoneAid Ketones:
We typically like to consume 45min prior to event and supplement every 60-90min based on total duration. This product can and should be used with additional supplements/gels during your training and racing. During the off-season, we love to use on recovery days as a means of caloric restriction.
One capful is 5ml. Pour into small glass and dilute 1 to 1.
