Fasting and low-calorie diets have widespread health benefits. One such program is the “keto” diet, which replaces carbohydrates with fat as your body’s primary fuel source. This activates a metabolic process called ketogenesis, which alters your body’s fuel preferences from blood sugar (glucose) to fat. But a long-term, high-fat diet is unhealthy for a variety of well-established reasons.
Bioactive ketone β-hydroxybutyrate
When your body doesn’t get enough carbs from your diet, it turns to fat as a source of energy. It creates ketones from this fat, which it can burn for energy, promoting both physical and mental performance.
In a placebo-controlled study, higher levels of plasma ketones were associated with improvements in cognitive function in older adults compared with placebo.1 And ketones fuel muscular and cognitive function without increasing blood sugar.
But you can get ketones without swapping out all of your dietary carbohydrates for fat. Bioactive ketone β-hydroxybutyrate provides an energy substrate your brain and body can burn efficiently, so you don’t have to ingest large quantities of fat during a low-calorie diet or fasting regimen.
Mangiferin from mango extract
Mangiferin is a plant compound found in several plants, including mangoes. Mangiferin promotes ketogenesis, encouraging increases in plasma ketone levels. In a randomized clinical trial, 150 mg a day of mangiferin for 12 weeks produced increased serum levels of ketone bodies. Blood lipid levels were favorably affected as well.2
FiberSmart® digestive-resistant starch
Finally, Keto Brain and Body Boost provides a form of carbohydrate (starch) that is not readily digested and absorbed in the small intestine to maintain healthy blood glucose levels.3 Instead, it is slowly fermented by bacteria in the large intestine to promote gut health.4 Resistant starch has many health-promoting benefits.5-7 Clinical research shows that it can support ketone production and produce a very small glycemic response.8 This type of starch may also help promote the feeling of fullness.6
