Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), is one of the three Ketone bodies (energy molecules) your body makes when it’s running on fat instead of carbs. It’s also known as 3-hydroxybutyric acid or 3-hydroxybutanoic acid (3HB).
The three main ketones your body makes from fatty acids are:
· Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). It is the most abundant, making up to 78% of total ketones in the blood.
· Acetoacetate (AcAc). It makes up around 20% of ketones in the blood.
· Acetone. The least abundant, making about 2% of ketones in the blood. It’s not used for energy.
5 BENEFITS OF TAKING EXOGENOUS BHB SALTS
If you’re on the fence about taking BHB salts, here’s all they can do for you, in a nutshell:
1. PUTS YOU IN KETOSIS FAST
2. DECREASED "KETO FLU" SYMPTOMS
3. NORMALIZES BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
4. INCREASES FAT BURNING
5. MAY HELP LOWER ANXIETY
New research finds that supplementing with ketone salts decreases anxiety-related behavior in rats. BHB salts powder can also make the brain more resistant to stressors that worsen behavioral performance. This effect fits with the anti-depressive and anti-anxiety effect of endogenous ketones, although more human trials are needed. There’s no doubt exogenous BHB allows you to tweak your metabolism in a way you couldn’t do just a few years ago. It basically lets you enter ketosis on command. Still, there’s one more thing you can do to make BHB salts more effective: Add MCT oil. Studies find that supplementing with a mix of BHB salts and MCTs skyrockets BHB production.

Taking BHB salts is safe, as seen by trials in humans and animals. Most exogenous BHB supplements contain 11-16 grams of BHB, which is an effective dose that doesn’t cause any major side effects.
It’s not dangerous to supplement with BHB salts as long as your blood BHB remains at a level of nutritional ketosis (0.6-3 mmol/L).
As always, consult with your doctor before taking a new supplement.
