NEW IMPROVED FORMULATION
Update May 2019
KetoAF is a keto friendly pre workout that combines exogenous ketones from both BHB salts (beta hydroxybutyrate) and MCT (medium chain triglycerides), on top of industry leading preworkout ingredients backed by science.
This insane formula is made for the serious athlete looking to maximize human potential.
Energy, Endurance, Focus, Strength, Muscle Pumps
It's all there in this All-In-One keto friendly, and zero net carb (per serving), pre workout.
Naturally Sweetened & Flavored
No Artificial sweeteners, dyes or chemicals. Sweetened with Stevia, an all-natural sweetener with proven health benefits, not risks--and natural flavoring.
When we set out to create KetoAF, we wanted to create the best pre workout available, focused on only the best and most effective ingredients.
While most supplement companies today sell ketone supplements as a weight loss product, scientific studies and independent research shows the best potential use for exogenous ketones is maximizing human performance!
In fact, even athletes not on a low carb or keto diet can benefit from taking ketones before exercise!
Ketone bodies are energy sources that are produced and burned under special metabolic conditions such as starvation and high fat (ketogenic diets). Ketones are a super fuel that can be efficiently used by the muscles and the brain, where they generate more energy (ATP) per unit of oxygen consumed than do carbohydrates, protein, or fat.
We also add MCT powder, which is a quick source of energy for a workout. Due to the reduced chain length, MCTs are absorbed and then metabolized very rapidly. They are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use, instead of being stored as fat. They are used as energy much faster than glucose and have over twice the calories per gram, making them an excellent energy source during intense exercise.
Even before the addition of BHB and MCTs, every other ingredient in KetoAF has been proven effective in independent, peer-reviewed research studies to increase strength, focus, and mood.
Let's take a look at the formulation:
4G Beta-Hydroxybutyrate as goBHB
3G MCT Medium Chain Triglycerides
2.5G Creatine Monohydrate
1.6g Beta Alanine
1G Betaine Anhydrous
1G L-Carnitine L-Tartrate
5G Citrulline Malate 2:1
300mg Caffeine Anhydrous
50mg Theacrine (as TeaCrine)
goBHB™ Exogenous Ketones
Ketones are a cleaner, less oxidative source of energy than carbs. Ketones are a super fuel that can be efficiently used by the muscles and the brain, where they generate more energy (ATP) per unit of oxygen consumed than do carbohydrates, protein, or fat.
MCT Medium Chain Triglycerides
Due to the reduced chain length, MCTs are absorbed and then metabolized very rapidly. They are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use, instead of being stored as fat. They are used as energy much faster than glucose and have over twice the calories per gram, making them an excellent energy source during intense exercise.
We don’t include caffeine just for the energy boost, research shows that supplementation with caffeine also increases muscle endurance and strength. Caffeine also boosts blood ketones!
The best and “must have” supplement for serious muscle building is Creatine Monohydrate for greater strength, endurance, and the promotion of muscle growth.
Citrulline Malate to help promote better muscle endurance, blood flow and bigger muscle pumps
Betaine Trimethyglycine, found naturally in plants such as beets, has been shown in research to improve muscle endurance, greater power and strength during workouts.
A naturally occurring amino acid, studies show that supplementation with beta-alanine reduces exercise-induced fatigue, improves anaerobic exercise capacity, and increases potential workload, which can help you build more muscle.
Research and Studies
One of the most promising areas of studies and research around the use of ketone supplements as a performance maximizer for hard training endurance and power/strength athletes.
Ketone bodies are a super fuel that can be efficiently used by the muscles and the brain, where they generate more energy (ATP) per unit of oxygen consumed than do carbohydrates, protein, or fat.
A study published in August 2016 by Peter Cox [5
] on BHB esters + dextrose gives us great insight about Ketones and human cognitive and physical performance. Below are some of those insights:
- Metabolically, the skeletal muscle will oxidize and burn ketone bodies preferentially over glycogen & glucose. Hence, it is glycogen sparing. The data show 18-22% less glycogen utilized compared to the carb only group.
- Simultaneously, the presence of BHB also shifts metabolism to more efficiently oxidize fatty acids in mitochondria via TCA cycle. Over a 30% uptick here was seen in trained endurance cyclists vs. carb only group.
- Previous data has shown that Ketones/ BHB allow cells to generate about 36% more ATP per unit oxygen used in energy metabolism in a model looking at heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes) And 25% more ATP with Ketone bodies alone . Hence the analogy of Ketones being a "higher octane", "cleaner," more efficient fuel versus carb, or even fat.
- It demonstrated simultaneously an efficient flux through both glycolytic (albeit BHB slows down glycolysis) in cytosol + aerobic, mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation; allowing for less lactate at same exercise workload, and increase in performance (exercise capacity, max distance cycled) in time trial after a 2 hour steady state ride at 75% VO2 max.
Peter Attia, an MD and one of the most brilliant minds in the keto scene who now focuses on longevity medicine at his private practice in San Diego and New York City, has also chronicled his amazing transition 
from sugar burner to fat adapted cyclist.
