What is Ketosis?

What is goBHB®?

Beta-hydroxybutyrate (as goBHB®) is a patented ketone body that fuels you without requiring a very low-carb diet. It is a non-carb energy source. Your energy and cognitive function increase, while your appetite decreases. This ketone body can deliver a boost to gamers, athletes, busy professionals, biohackers, and more. It can be used in longevity formulas, intra-workout, pre-workout, weight management formulas, brain health products, and more. It can even help stimulate the “metabolic shift” away from glucose dependence.

Some other fun facts about BHB are:

  • Works quickly
  • Spares glycogen stores, which means it’s perfect for endurance athletes
  • Goes great with high fat diets
