Ketones serve as a unique energy source, capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier.
Ketone-induced neuroprotection can improve overall brain health, may mitigate age-related health challenges by improving mitochondrial function, can provide antioxidant effects, and can provide modulation of neurotransmitter systems.
Ketones are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier. Early studies show that ketones could help fight energy deficits in the brain after a concussion or TBI.
Concussions can compromise glucose metabolism in the brain, causing a dangerous energy deficit. Animal studies indicate ketones could fight energy deficits, oxidative stress and excessive free radical production.
Ketone-induced neuroprotection can improve overall brain health and may mitigate age-related health challenges by improving mitochondrial function.
A recent human study noted improved cognition and increased cerebral blood flow following 14 days of exogenous ketone supplementation in middle-aged obese adults.
Ketones are an alternative energy source that can reduce the brain’s reliance on glucose metabolism. Instead of glucose, the brain can metabolize ketones as an energy source.
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 is safe at any dose and for all age groups based on a study published in Nutrient magazine, according to FDA guidelines. The study noted no adverse effects, even at extremely high doses (200 times by body weight).
We also tested the absorption rate to determine how quickly Tecton ketones will get into the bloodstream after drinking a can of our 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. This usually requires two days of starving or up to 2-3 weeks 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.
