The U.S. Navy looked for natural ways to increase the energy, endurance, and mental clarity of Navy Seals and Marines engaged in combat situations. They wanted to develop a supplement that allowed combatants to derive long-term energy from body fat instead of short-term energy from sugar. To do this, they teamed up with researchers at the University of South Florida.
What they discovered has been heralded as one of the most important breakthroughs in the field of nutrition and weight loss. They patented this discovery and now a Utah-based, LDS-run company, Ketōnd, is now making this all-natural nutrient formulation available to the public.
Key to Weight Loss is Metabolizing Fat for Energy Instead of Sugar
The goal of any credible weight control program is to help you wean your body off of sugar (glucose) as its primary source of energy and to train it to burn fat for energy instead. This is the only way to go from obesity to leanness.
Ketones Are a Chemical Your Body Produces When It Burns Stored Fat
This metabolic process of combusting fat for energy is called “ketosis.” In this process, combusted fat produces a powerful source of energy called “ketones.” When you have high levels of ketones in your blood, these ketones are used for primary energy instead of glucose.
Over time, if you’re overweight, this results in your body burning your excess stored fat until it reaches a healthy level of total body fat—usually 22% for women and 15% for men.
It Takes About a Month of Reduced Refined Carbohydrate Eating to Trigger Ketosis
Ketosis, (not to be confused with “ketoacidosis”—a complication of Type 1 diabetes) can occur when you greatly reduce refined carbohydrates (i.e., sugar/white our) in your diet. It can take up to a month of reduced refined-carbohydrate eating to trigger ketosis.
During this time, most “dieters” become overwhelmed with cravings for sugar and experience uncomfortable and even painful sugar-withdrawal symptoms. This happens because sugar is as addictive as cocaine and is just as destructive to your health.
The Good News: Powerful Ketones Can Be Produced in the Blood With Patented All-Natural Drink Formulation
The U.S. Navy and the University of South Florida researchers discovered ketosis can be stimulated by consuming a precise (now patented) formula of the natural nutrient beta-hydroxybutyrate mineral salts combined with certain fatty acids (goBHBTM).
With this formulation, they were able to elevate and sustain super-high, fat-burning, blood ketone levels.
Single Dose Creates Four Hours of Ketones
They learned that a single dose of this formulation, in the form of a flavored drink, could raise and keep high levels of ketones in your blood for up to four hours at a time.
The implication is from the very first dose you can begin to immediately transition from sugar dependency for energy to the burning of ketones for energy. Your body begins to quickly consume fat for energy, greatly accelerating weight loss.
Patented Formulation Now Available as Ketōnd
Theis new, patented breakthrough formulation, called Ketōnd, has been licensed to Ketōnd an LDS-run, Utah company. It’s now available for those who want to break the bonds of sugar cravings and addiction, to wean their metabolism off of sugar as its primary source of energy, transform their metabolism to one that burns fat for energy, and once and for all get control of their bodies and lives.
Ideal for Senior Brain Health
Ketōnd also helps wean the brain’s dependence on sugar for energy to ketones. New research indicates that excess glucose levels in the brain are a major factor in memory loss, dementia and Alzheimers. The U.S. Navy patent states that the Ketōnd formula is deal for senior degenerative memory issues and other maladies associated with aging.
Pleasant Tasting Flavor Options
Ketōnd is available in seven pleasant tasting flavors: Tiger’s Blood, Citrus Mango, Grape, Blue Raspberry, Strawberry Daiquiri, Key Lime Pie, and Caramel Macchiato.

Summary of Benefits as Described in U.S. Patent #WO2014153416 A1 Granted to U.S. Navy & The University of South Florida
"Compositions and Methods for Producing Elevated and Sustained Ketosis "
1. SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT LOSS: A single dose of powder mixed with water can significantly elevate blood ketone levels (ketosis) and sustain those levels for 4 hours. When in ketosis, the body burns stored body fat for fuel instead of sugar. This helps promote a significant loss of excess body fat. Two doses per day recommended.
2. HELPS STOP CRAVINGS & CONTROL APPETITE: Helps avoids sugar withdrawal symptoms commonly experienced by individuals significantly reducing/eliminating refined carbohydrates (foods quickly converted to blood glucose) from their diet.
3. INCREASES ENERGY & ENDURANCE: Significantly increases energy and endurance levels because the body uses fat (ketones) as a source of energy rather than sugar.
4. IMPROVES THINKING, MEMORY & EMOTIONS: When the brain uses ketones instead of glucose as the primary source of energy, cognitive and psychological health are greatly improved. Stronger memory, clearer thinking, and balanced mood states. Helps alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and dementias.
5. LOWERS BLOOD SUGAR: Reduces blood sugar levels, insulin resistance, and their diabetic effects. This allows the body's cells to metabolize fat and use ketones for energy instead of sugar thus helping to reduce excess body fat.
