H.V.M.N. Ketone is the result 15+ years of research and millions of dollars of funding by DARPA, the NIH and Oxford University. Extensive testing has been devoted to taking the ketone ester research compound (called ‘ΔG,’ or ‘R 1,3-butanediol R 1,3 hydroxybutyrate') to commercialization in H.V.M.N. Ketone.

This ketone ester has been extensively tested for safety and efficacy in both animal and human studies.Clarke2012 After one serving of ketone ester, blood ketone levels can increase up to 3-5 mM. Ketone ester has shown to have effects on metabolism that can improve performance for athletes,Cox2016 but can also be useful for general health. The list of possible use cases includes: body composition optimization, obesity, inflammation reduction, treating traumatic brain injury, cognitive improvement or neurological disorders.Veech2004

Studies of the ketogenic diet (i.e., studies of endogenous ketosis) date back to the 1920s, when it was first used to treat children with epilepsy.

Research has shown that low-carb, high-fat diets (which trigger the production of ketone bodies) have potential uses in conditions such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer.Branco2016 However, there are some downsides to the low carbohydrate diet including difficulties in compliance and some potentially harmful side effects.Branco2016

Exogenous ketones like ketone esters, ketone salts and medium chain triglycerides (MCT) may offer a way to induce the benefits of ketosis without requiring adherence to the strict ketogenic diet.Stubbs2017 Exogenous ketone supplementation is a rapidly developing field of research, investigating health and performance benefits of ketone drinks compared to the keto diet.

The research studies are abundant (in both human clinical trials and animal models), and have been conducted using the ketone ester found in H.V.M.N. Ketone.
