Recent data have indicated rates for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart disease (CHD) are declining but still more than a third of all deaths in the US, and nearly half of the deaths in the EU, can be linked to heart disease. Fiber has long been proposed as a possible cardioprotectant; there have been studies that assessed dietary fiber and its effects on hypertension, obesity, increased serum cholesterol and insulin sensitivity. It has been suggested that other components of…

The presence of excess inflammation is the main driver behind metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance, obesity, metabolic syndrome (MS), type 2 diabetes (T2D), cardiovascular disease (CVD) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammatory marker produced by the liver and adipocytokines (bioactive molecules produced in fat tissue) such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor- α (TNF- α) are molecules which are key in this inflammatory process. Treatment options focused on dampening inflammation by reducing these…

by Milene Brownlow, PhD The metabolism of exogenous ketones, in ester vs. salt forms, are explored. Highlights Ketone ester (KE) drinks elevated blood βHB to a greater extent (>50%) than Ketone salt (KS) drinks, while KS drinks increased blood levels of L-βHB, which was metabolized more slowly Both drinks had similar effects on FFA, TG, glucose and electrolyte concentrations, although only KE significantly decreased blood pH below normal range Consumption of a meal prior to KE intake decreased total blood…

Ketogenic diets—diets that restrict carbohydrates to usually < 50 g/day to induce ketosis—are gaining popularity, for nutritional ketosis has been shown to lead to metabolic advantages including weight management and improvements in glycemic control and blood lipids. However, adhering to such a strict diet to sustain ketosis may be difficult for many. As a result, there has been growing interest in maintaining nutritional ketosis via consumption of exogenous ketone drinks such as ketone esters (KE) and ketone salts (KS). The…
