According to the Cleveland Clinic, while caffeine (found in most energy drinks) can stimulate your heart to help you feel energized, it can also cause insomnia, headaches, dehydration, and high blood pressure if you’re not careful.
Many people get desensitized to caffeine, making it less effective.
We need real fuel, not a stimulant, to create real energy (called ATP) in our cells. ATP can be created using a variety of substrates.
But our brain cells can only use two things for energy — glucose from carbs, or ketones.
When consuming high amounts of simple sugars (e.g. sugar-laden drinks), blood sugar can rise rapidly (within 15 minutes) leading to a surge in insulin production and release.
The result? A rapid fall of blood sugar within the first hour or so — often generating a feeling of fatigue: the crash.
When the body is deprived of carbs (glucose/sugar), the liver breaks down fat for energy. These fats are turned into energy-rich ketones.
Supplemental ketones can provide the body with a rapid energy source without impacting blood sugar!
Nature found a way to help humans to survive when we endured extreme physical effort or starvation that depleted carbs in our bodies, a primary source of fuel.
In order to, perhaps evade predators or find our next morsel of food, we needed a superior source of energy.
This is when our livers burn fat to produce one of nature’s most efficient fuels. These are called ketone bodies.
To help us think more clearly, endure longer physical effort, suppress hunger, and recover. And perhaps, live to fight another day…
This diet involves strictly limiting daily carb intake to less than 50g (about 2 pieces of toast), along with a moderate amount of protein and a higher amount of fat. It’s been around since the 1920’s to help people with epilepsy, and more recently for weight loss and athletic performance. Most people swear by it, but some struggle to sustain it.
Whether you can or cannot do this diet, Tecton can help by suppressing hunger while giving you the fuel to increase mental and physical performance.
Tecton contains nature-identical ketones that you can simply drink. These ketones will provide the same fuel as those produced through the keto diet.
Tecton is the world’s only Ketone Hydration drink that contains zero sugar, zero caffeine and no “1,3 butanediol” (a secondary alcohol or ethanol dimer).
You can also drink Tecton as an accompaniment to the Keto Diet. Some people use it as insurance to keep themselves in ketosis even if they accidentally consume a few extra carbs.
Keto aware people may want to understand how Tecton will raise their blood ketone levels and for howlong. This question is answered by doing what’s called a pharmacokinetics study (PK, for short).
We conducted our own PK study. Blood was drawn from participants at 9 intervals over 12 hours in oneday with and without consumption of our ketones.
The samples were sent to Mayo Clinic’s Lab for analysis. The data we received back indicated that our molecule is rapidly absorbed and reaches peakconcentration in 30 min, putting you into ketosis.
