Beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a dietary supplement ingredient that is self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS). BHB raw material is typically supplied as a stable mineral salts, such as BHB sodium, BHB calcium, BHB magnesium and BHB potassium.
BHB is a naturally occurring metabolite formed during fat digestion and metabolism, known as a ketone body. Much like glucose is the energy molecule derived from carbohydrates/sugars, and amino acids are derived from proteins, ketones are energy molecules derived from fat. BHB is an energy dense molecule that naturally fuels your brain, heart, and muscles during periods of low carbohydrate intake.
