Exogenous vs. Endogenous Ketones: Which One is Better?

Exogenous vs. Endogenous Ketones: Which One is Better?

Ketone powders and ketone supplements are usually very limited in scope and do not usually show strong efficacy when it comes to performance and health outcomes. The potential benefits of ketones seem to arise from the endogenous production of ketones.

Though many products purport that they put you in instant ketosis, this is merely because ketones in these products bypass the processes of generating ketones within our body and simply pass into the bloodstream to raise the blood ketone levels.

This is mainly 'mock' or 'temporary' ketosis which isn't the same as your body using your fat stores or fat from the diet to turn them into ketone bodies. MCT oil, a key ingredient used in our Energy Pods, promotes endogenous ketone production in our body and is the correct nutritional way to rapidly produce ketone bodies.

For most people and therapeutic purposes, the endogenous production of ketones is what scientific research has shown to be associated with benefits. Right now, exogenous ketones do not show strong science showing their benefits, save for some rare conditions. Most people will reap the benefits of exogenous ketones and more by using endogenous ketone production.

Lastly, fat loss occurs when our body's fat stores are released. Though exogenous ketones artificially bloat blood ketone readings, this may be counterproductive to fat loss or may not accurately represent the process of fat loss.

Conclusively, it is best to use endogenous sources of ketones for any therapeutic benefits. Energy Pods contain fats that promote the endogenous production of ketones which is something supported by scientific research as well.
