Worse, you could experience digestive issues that impede your travel plans and keep you from having a good and productive time.

Tecton is the Perfect Healthy Travel Companion

Ketones are considered to be the 4th macronutrient that provide significant health benefits. Previously, the only way to get these benefits was through a highly restrictive keto diet. Now, Tecton’s nature-identical ketone beverage provides many of these benefits without strictly adhering to the diet.

Tecton is the world’s first and only ready-to-drink beverage that contains 10g of nature-identical ketones that doesn’t contain 1,3 butanediol (a secondary alcohol or ethanol dimer). Tecton has been noted to be safe, even at very high dosages, as reported in a recent publication in the scientific journal, Nutrients.

Scientists also tested the absorption rate to determine how quickly Tecton ketones get into the bloodstream after drinking a can of the product. So, with analyses by Mayo Clinic, a pharmacokinetics (PK) study showed that Tecton’s ketone ester has a rapid absorption rate, reaching a maximum concentration in just 30 minutes, putting the user into mild ketosis in minutes. A similar blood level of ketones usually requires two days of fasting or several days of strict adherence to a keto diet!

Because Tecton has zero sugar and zero caffeine, it is a simple and safe alternative, or accompaniment, to fasting or a restrictive ketogenic diet. Regarding intermittent fasting, Tecton ketones may allow for an extension of the fasting period, which may aid overall weight loss/fat loss over time.
