Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something the body does to keep working when carbohydrates have been depleted. The human body is like a flex fuel car where it can use one of two fuel sources. The two types of fuel source the body can burn in order to keep running consist of carbohydrates and fats. When the body is in ketosis, it burns fats as the primary fuel instead of burning carbohydrates.
In order for the body to start to go into ketosis, it takes approximately 6 to 10 hours. In order for the body to naturally go into full ketosis, it takes approximately four to five days to do so. Once the body starts going into ketosis symptoms of the keto flu started. The keto flu consists of a headache, often known as the "hangrys". Other symptoms consist of irritability, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea and/or muscle and joint pain. Not everyone will experience all the symptoms.
As the body is going through the keto flu, it starts to develop what are called ketone bodies. Ketone bodies are made up of ketone, acetoacetic acid, beta-hydroxybutyric acid in order to break down fats to fuel the body. Since it takes a long time for the body to produce enough ketone bodies many people don't stick with the diet without supplementation.
Our product called, "Keto-Cellutone" is made up of three types of ketone salts that consist of Calcium Beta-hydroxybutyrate, Magnesium Beta-hydroxybutyrate, and Sodium Beta-Hydroxybutyrate. These ketone salts are metabolized quickly and turn into ketone bodies. Through supplementation, a person can quickly bypass the keto-flu all together or keep it to a minimum to just one day and have better compliance with the keto-diet. Better compliance means more fat loss leading to a leaner body.
