Ketone Supplement Controls Diabetes and Prevents Heart Diseases

Ketone supplement controls diabetes as well as obesity by restraining blood sugar levels, according to the latest research that presents a potential futuristic method intended to curb sugar levels spikes suffered by diabetics.

Since the last few decades, obesity and Type 2 diabetes have been reaching endemic proportions. Such conditions are linked to an extreme rise in the levels of blood sugar, which can be injurious to the vessels supplying blood to the crucial organs, while at the same triggers higher risks to develop stroke and heart attack.

New research findings have been disclosed in The Journal of Physiology, showing that the ketone ester supplement is able to lower the blood sugar levels, though earlier researches had discover that ketone instilling into the blood vessels leads to curb the blood sugar.


A team of researchers from the University of Oxford and University of British Columbia indicate that a ketone ester drink provides a fine control over blood sugar by restraining the spikes in blood sugar levels.

Jonathan Little, one of the researchers of new discovery and professor at the Okanagan Campus of University of British Columbia said that, “Our study was done in healthy young participants but if the same responses were seen in people with, or at risk for, type 2 diabetes then it is possible that a ketone monoester supplement could be used to lower glucose levels and improve metabolic health. We are working on these studies at the moment.”
