Ketogenic Drinks Improve Glycemia and Insulin Sensitivity

A ketone supplement, taken as a so-called 'keto drink' half an hour prior to consuming glucose, reduces glycemic response and improves markers of insulin sensitivity without affecting insulin secretion, show data from a small randomized cross-over study in healthy volunteers.

According to the authors, led by Étienne Myette-Côté, PhD candidate, from the University of British Columbia Okanagan, Kelowna, Canada, "ketone monoester supplements could have therapeutic potential in the management and prevention of metabolic disease." The article was published online February 15 in the Journal of Physiology.
