Nutricost has developed a premiere Ketone Salts (4-in-1) supplement, a naturally-derived compound that mixes sodium, potassium, or calcium, with exogenous ketone Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (BHB) to improve absorption. Ketone Salts (4-in-1) are designed to provide a multitude of touted benefits such as athletic performance enhancement, efficient weight loss, optimized cognitive function, and anti-inflammatory properties.* However, exogenous ketones seem to have the most benefit for those already in dietary ketosis.* They are especially useful for already lean individuals in a caloric deficit, who train and perform at high levels and are looking for an additional energy burst, without resorting to adding in carbs prior to workouts.
There are 3 different types of ketones: Beta-hydroxybutyrate, Acetoacetate, and Acetone. Beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate are the most abundant ketones, while acetone is produced in much smaller quantities, and excreted as waste from the body through respiration. Beta-hydroxybutyrate can also be converted via BHB dehydrogenase into Acetoacetic acid, and ultimately Acetoacetate. This makes Beta-hydroxybutyrate the most vital ketone. Ketone bodies are then utilized in the citric acid cycle to synthesize energy in the form of Adrenosine Triphosphate.
While most exogenous ketones have a diuretic effect, Nutricost has added calcium, sodium, magnesium, and potassium to their Ketone Salts (hence the 4-in-1) in order to reinforce healthy electrolyte balance. Each exogenous ketone is bound to either four minerals to increase stability, bio-availability, and absorption. Any individual familiar with being in dietary ketosis knows the importance of consuming adequate electrolytes, since it is much easier to become electrolyte imbalanced in the absence of carbohydrates. Insulin signals the kidneys to retain important electrolytes, and with less carbs and less insulin production, it is easy to see why low carbers need a surplus of these crucial minerals.

Nutricost has developed an exogenous ketone supplement, Ketone Salts (4-in-1), to provide a boost of ketones and electrolytes for low and non-low carbers alike.–>
Dissolve 1 rounded scoop in 8-12 ounces of water. Consume before or during workout, or as directed by your physician. Do not exceed 3 servings per day.
May not be suitable for those who are pregnant, or nursing. Do not exceed recommended dose. Consult your physician with any questions or concerns.
Beta-hydroxybutyrate – Beta-hydroxybutyrate is the most abundant ketone found in the body, and able cross the blood-brain-barrier into the central nervous system, where it is utilized in the citric acid cycle to yield fuel.
Q. What Are Ketone Salts (4-in-1)?
A. Ketone Salts are exogenous ketones such as Beta-hydroxybutyrate, that increase ketone bodies in the bloodstream, and may enhance performance as ketone bodies are converted to energy.
Q. What Does The 4-in-1 Stand For?
A. Each exogenous ketone is bound to either calcium, sodium, magnesium, or potassium in order to increase bioavailabity of the ketones. For those who are already in ketosis, consuming an excess of electrolytes is important in order to avoid electrolyte imbalances.
Q. Do I Have To Be In Ketosis To Use Ketone Salts?
A. No, however most benefits may be seen for users already in nutritional ketosis.
Q. When Is Best To Take Ketone Salts?
A. It is best to consume Ketone Salts prior or during workout for athletic performance properties.
Q. Can I Take Other Products With Ketone Salts?
A. Yes, however you may want to watch carb content of other products if you are in nutritional ketosis. Ketone Salts do not inhibit you from getting kicked out of ketosis upon higher levels of carb consumption.
