Also known as beta-hydroxybutyric acid, 3-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB, beta-hydroxybutyrate is one of the three compounds produced and burned in the human body. Noted nutrition brand, NamFon Nutrition, has recently discussed the benefits of BHB.
SANFORD, NORTH CAROLINA, Aug 13, 2019 /prREACH/ -- NamFon Nutrition, a well-known manufacturer of health and nutrition products, has recently discussed the benefits of beta-hydroxybutyrate for the human body. The company’s range of products includes exogenous BHB for men and women, currently available on Amazon.
More information about NamFon Nutrition products can be found at their official website, https://www.namfonnutrition.com.
According to NamFon Nutrition, beta-hydroxybutyrate is created as the most abundant by-product of fat metabolism in the liver. Following its creation, it moves into the blood and circulates through the body to be used as a fuel source. This process, however, takes place only in the absence of glucose (sugar) in the body. In the absence of carbs, the human body shifts to a metabolic state that uses its stored fat for generating energy, and beta-hydroxybutyrate is created.
“When the body starts burning fat for energy, the first things you see are changes in blood glucose levels and insulin levels. So, we're going to see insulin levels go down and insulin sensitivity changes in metabolic syndrome markers like cholesterol. Improvements in HDL cholesterol and LDL, and even changes in blood sugar levels also occur,” said Joel Johnson, the spokesperson for NamFon Nutrition.
NamFon Nutrition also mentions that BHB salts can be used in a plethora of healthcare applications, as mentioned below:
- Improved overall health performance and possible fat loss.
- Nutritional therapy for obesity, neurological disorders, and even some types of cancer.
- Therapeutic treatment of epilepsy.
- Improved brain functions, mood, and concentration.
- Impacts the hunger hormones to reduce food cravings.
- Maximizes the energy supply for the body.
“Our BHB products contain exogenous BHB salts — clinically proven to jump-start or maintain ketosis and add more energy and fat-burning power,“Johnson adds. “Since quality is important to us, all our products are produced in a state-of-the-art FDA registered lab facility that is also GMP certified.”
