There’s been so much buzz surrounding Ketone Esters and athletic performance recently! Serious athletes are lining up in droves to chug this expensive elixir of pure performance gold.
BUT drinking high-dose (and high-ticket) ketone bottles all day long is not practical for most -- it's also not even necessary if you’re just trying to suppress hunger and maintain health, not powerhouse through a major training session or super charge recovery...
Until now, the amazing benefits of ketone esters have only been available in very expensive high concentration bottles or questionable ketone salts products.
But now all that's changed. Now there's a more affordable way to support your athletic and mental performance, general health, and weight loss goals.
Introducing the brand new...
Delta ΔH will put you in mild ketosis versus deep ketosis of DetlaG. It's designed more for daily health maintenance, weight loss goals, and as a support for a ketogenic lifestyle. Carb-restriction and keto-diets are not required to get the benefits. A healthy diet is recommended for best results, of course!
Being in a ketogenic state has been demonstrated in human scientific studies to support
Immunity: Use daily to help support a healthy immune system
Metabolic health: when taken daily, by helping maintain healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels (if already within the normal range). By regulating hunger, it supports a weight loss plan which maintains healthy body composition.
Rejuvenation: As a daily tonic, △H helps to support cellular repair, brain health, a balanced mood and to decrease occasional anxiety.
Delta ΔH is an efficient fuel that is used rapidly by both the brain and the body.
When fasting, on a low carb diet, or during endurance exercise, the small store of glucose (which is glycogen in the liver and muscle) quickly becomes depleted. As a result, the body switches from burning glucose for energy to burning fat. To replace the diminishing supply of glucose, the liver converts fat into ketones for the brain.
Considered the fourth fuel source (alongside carbs, fats, and protein), ketones are produced by your body as ‘brain food’ when glucose is not available and your muscles are burning fat as a fuel source. The ketogenic state is unique to humans as an evolutionary mechanism to keep the brain alive and thriving even when food is scarce.
When ketones are present in your body, your brain will function in an almost elevated state. You’ll be flooded with clean, long-lasting energy that doesn’t have the ‘bonking’ effect or sugar crash that carbs do AND they help in muscle recovery, sleep and hunger suppression during fasted states. Not to mention they are being studied for prevention of certain diseases, aging and cognitive decline, and neurological issues like Parkisons.
While science has known about the benefits of fasting and ketosis for years, it wasn’t until a research team at Oxford, in response to a challenge from the US Army, developed drinkable exogenous ketones (Exogenous means originating outside the body) that you could get the benefits of ketosis without fasting and carb-restricting. Now you can, in minutes not days.
The formula for drinkable Ketones originates from Oxford University. They hold the patent and Professor Kieran Clarke's (one of the two head researchers that developed the formula) company T Delta S Global is the only manufacturer of this formula, which is the one that’s been used in all the clinical studies. To clear up confusion, the formula was originally marketed via HVMN but is now exclusively available via T Delta S (using the same formula).
The difference is in the chemistry. Ketone esters are ketones fused to an alcohol molecule. Ketone salts are ketones fused to a salt molecule...
ketone salts are not recommended by most experts. We don’t carry them at The Feed with the exception of KE4 as it is an ester/salt blend and the salt content remains acceptable.
The reason that salts are no good is that the amount of salt you have to ingest to get a beneficial effect of ketones is alot. Enough to give your cardiologist a heart attack at five or six times the daily recommended salt limits.
What’s the difference between MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil and exogenous ketones?
MCT oil is not ketones. It’s more like a precursor to ketones and can help your body go into ketosis faster, BUT they will not induce a state of ketosis on their own. They are great to use for fasted workouts and carb-restriction to jumpstart ketosis but they need to be taken away from carbs or their effects will be… nada. When you take ketone esters, you’re literally drinking actual ketones, which your body recognizes as ketones and utilizes as ketones, no fasting required!
For best results, drink ΔH® Ketone Health daily as a single serving in the morning or several servings throughout the day to maintain intermittent fasting or a keto diet, and to support healthy immune function and general well-being. To support healthy sleep, drink ΔH® Ketone Health before bed.
Are Ketones Safe?
The FDA states that Ketones are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe).
Are Ketones Legal?
Yes. They are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency list of banned substances.
What's inside the bottle?
You are getting BHB Ketone Ester and some light flavoring. There is no caffeine, sugar, salt, or fat.
You can then choose a single bottle, a 3 pack, 25 pack, or 50 pack.
What do they taste like?
Nobody drinks ketone esters for the taste. In fact, their terrible taste yet incredibly popularity is a testament to their effectiveness. That being said, there have been some developments in the taste profile recently and the newest formulas are slightly less jet-fuel-like than previous formulas. Now they lean more towards cough syrup. Many athletes report chilling the ketones helps. Delta ΔH is definitely a more pleasant experience than ΔG.
△G and △H can both augment or replace a ketogenic diet, although they will not be effective in someone with poor eating habits.
In the keto-adapted athlete, △G raises ketone levels to be used as an endurance fuel and to help maintain healthy levels of glycogen and preserve muscle.
△H complements a ketogenic diet for healthy weight management and/or improving body composition. △H drinks can alleviate feelings of hunger and blunt the impact of a carb-rich “cheat meal” by expediting the return to ketosis.
