Brendan Egan, PhD, is Associate Professor at Dublin City University. One of the research topics he has investigated extensively is exogenous ketones and exercise performance, and this is also the topic of today's interview.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-The physiology of ketone bodies and ingestion of exogenous ketones
-How and why elevated ketone levels through a ketogenic diet and exogenous ketone ingestion are not the same
-Dosing protocols, and the important differences between ketone esters and ketone salts
-How does exogenous ketone intake impact endurance performance?
-How does exogenous ketone intake impact recovery-related outcomes?
-Practical recommendations for athletes based on current evidence
