My name is Dr. Philip Prins and I am a professor of exercise science at Grove City College
I am starting a new study this year that is looking at the effects of a ketone supplement on 5-km running performance (see flier attached)
The ingestion of commercially available ketone supplements is becoming increasingly popular. Traditionally, ketosis (a metabolic state characterized by raised levels of ketone bodies) was only achieved through dietary manipulation. Recent interest has arisen to develop ketone bodies (compounds produced during the metabolism of fats) that can be orally administered without dietary carbohydrate restriction. With the emergence of commercially available oral ketone formulations, research has focused on exploring their use in athletic performance. Numerous oral ketone supplements are marketed with the claim that they will rapidly induce ketosis and improve exercise performance Therefore, it is important to determine the efficacy of these claims and the appropriate type and amount of pre-exercise supplement to improve exercise performance.
So, if you like running and want to make an easy $200 please let me know if you are interested
