BHB Salts are great supplements that help you tackle things like the Keto flu, a fix after a carb slip up, and generally just some extra energy during really long days!
Now, these usually come in the form of a tub of base that you can make into a drink, but... they're not terrible travel-friendly. While I do absolutely love the Perfect Keto Exogenous Ketones (definitely keep some of this at home for when you're not road-warrior-ing), I find that it doesn't travel well so, I've found some great alternatives.
I've tried a few, but the on I've used that I've found great success with is InKeto GoBHB Salts.
goBHB EXOGENOUS KETONES: Keto’s maximum strength BHB formula is designed to ignite your ketogenic diet. Our Keto BHB complex contains 2000mg of Beta-Hydroxybutyrate BHB Salts in each serving. Our formula contains Magnesium BHB, Potassium BHB, Calcium BHB, and Sodium BHB to maximize absorption and effectiveness. *
POWERFUL COMBO ((BHB SALTS + MCT OIL POWDER)): Our Keto Advanced supplement contains all-natural active ingredients including BHB salts and ketones, with high doses of magnesium, calcium and sodium beta hydroxybutyrate, premium quality elements to help kick-start your body! Not only that we have added MCT Oil Powder (Median Chail Triglycerides). 100% natural ketogenic supplement for your health’s boost! *
SUPPORTS KETOSIS & BLOOD KETONE LEVELS: Supplementing with exogenous ketones has been shown to boost energy, athletic performance, mental focus and metabolism. Additionally, goBHB has been shown to help ignite metabolism and decrease carb dependence helping you enhance your ketogenic diet. *
COMMON FORMS OF BHB: Beta-Hydroxybutyrate BHB Salts come in Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium and Potassium form. They are often found in powder and liquid form. However, capsules, tablets, pills, softgels and drops are becoming more popular. All forms support ketosis and help increase blood ketone levels. Works great with MCT Oil Powder. *
Medium Chain Triglyceride oils are great to help boost your ketone levels (especially when you messed up at the aiport and ate that burger). These oils are broken down in your liver and converted to Ketones that your body can use to not only power your brain, but help increase your energy, and most importantly tell your body you still want to use ketones (rather than glucose) for energy!
If you want my personal favorite, I use the Bulletproof Brain Octane. Here are some of the direct benefits and useful information about why I think this is the best MCT you can find on the market today and why I use this every single day to boost my ketosis!
NATURAL ENERGY SOLUTION: Brain Octane is naturally found in coconut oil in small quantities, and we concentrate it to provide you with the purest energy source possible. Brain Octane rapidly provides mental and physical energy, powering your day by supporting cognitive function and keeping you satisfied and free from food cravings. Add it to your daily routine, and experience the state of high performance.
PURE AND CLEAN: Brain Octane undergoes our special triple distillation process with only water, heat, and pressure to create the cleanest product possible - free from harsh chemicals and solvents. *
SUGAR-FREE ENERGY: As soon as you consume Brain Octane, it is rapidly absorbed and changed into ketone bodies - providing instant energy to the brain without breaking down glucose from sugars or carbohydrates. Experience the power of using quality fats for fuel, keeping you full and focused for hours. *
EXTRACTED FROM 100% PURE COCONUT OIL: Brain Octane is carefully extracted from 100% pure coconut oil, not palm oil, to protect wild orangutan habitat in Southeast Asia. Not just coconut or MCT oil - Brain Octane is made with only the best parts of the coconut, which metabolize more efficiently into ketone energy than more common oils. *
SUPPORTS HEALTHY DIGESTION: Brain Octane produces 4x the ketone energy of plain coconut oil, and also promotes healthy digestion and immune function. *
Not only can some good high-quality fish oil help you get just a bit more fat into your diet, it can also great enhance your brain function by providing more Omega-3 and Omega-6 that can help boost your brain power. I highly recommend a good Omega-3 Wild Alaskan Fish Oil supplement in order to make sure you're not eating crappy fish and make sure you're consuming good healthy fat!
These are the basics folks. Take a One a Day Vitamin. This one is easy and comes in the form of a single serving pill. This will ensure you're getting the basics even when you're having a beef jerky and almond heavy day!* Statements regarding dietary supplements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition.
