KetoPro by KetoSports
KetoSports’ KetoPro is a unique probiotic blend consisting of magnesium in combination with 10 billion CFU of organisms from 4 different bacterial strains. Magnesium is an important mineral that supports energy metabolism, benefits the nervous system and muscles, and contributes to mental resilience. When you eat low-carbohydrate, not only your metabolism changes, but also your electrolyte balance. Electrolytes are important minerals - including magnesium - that leave your body through the urine more quickly when you eat fewer carbohydrates, because you lose more water during this diet. For this reason KetoSports developed KetoPro, which combines probiotics and magnesium in one supplement. As magnesium supports maintenance of the normal water-mineral balance, this supplement will interest any devoted keto-fan! This unique combination is particularly suitable for people with active lifestyles and those on low-carb diets.
Taking care of your gut flora
The intestinal flora, also called microbiome, is an extremely important ecosystem inside our body. Did you know that our intestinal system is very personal and is just as unique as our fingerprint? Essential substances are produced here, including vitamins and neurotransmitters. The microbiome also plays a key role in the digestion of food and the subsequent absorption of vitamins, minerals and other core nutrients. To facilitate these processes the body collaborates with the intestinal bacteria present. The body acts as a host for these microbes. These microbes can be divided into different bacteria and fungi, desirable and less desirable species, and passing or permanent residents. As with all life, microbiomes are about balance. Naturally, it is important to take good care of your intestines, something specifically true in ketogenic dieting.
What are Ketones?
When the body mainly consumes carbohydrates and less fats and proteins, the body uses carbohydrates converted into glucose as fuel for energy. However, if there is little glucose in the body, for example in the case of food shortages, when you are engaged in prolonged physical exertion, are fasting or when you follow a strict low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) diet, your body will transfer from a 'sugar burn' to a' fat burn'. The liver then breaks fats down into fatty acids and glycerol, which can be converted back into ketones and glucose, respectively. Your body now enters a state of 'ketosis', a well-known phenomenon for people who have followed a ketogenic diet. It is also the state in which you are born as a baby and the state in which our early ancestors often found themselves, as they naturally dealt with extended periods without eating and their diet often consisted mainly of fats and proteins. Ketones are basically water-soluble molecules that are produced in the liver and enter the bloodstream when the body switches to fat burning.

The function of a ketogenic metabolism
The fact that the body in times of scarcity first turns to its own fat reserves instead of consuming valuable muscle mass, is an impressive survival mechanism without which our ancestors would probably not have survived periods of food scarcity. The process of ketogenesis which then takes place in the body has, moreover, the benefit of assuring sufficient energy supply to the brains, even when no carbohydrates are available. Ketones play a crucial role in this. Fatty acids and glycerol obtained from fat are an excellent fuel for most organs and tissues, but cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. That is why the liver breaks down fatty acids even further into ketones, which are released into the bloodstream and can cross said barrier. This adaptability in the metabolic process is a unique and fascinating propensity of the human body.
The process of ketogenesis
During ketogenesis bodily fatty acids extracted from fat are turned into ketones, a process that mainly takes place in the mitochondria of liver cells. The liver can produce three types of keto bodies: acetoacetic acid, acetone and beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). Initially, acetoacetic acid is produced, which is then further processed into acetone and BHB. The keto bodies are transported via the bloodstream to various tissues. Acetone leaves the body as a residual product through the breath and urine. Hence, when you are in ketosis, your breath can temporarily smell like acetone. BHB, on the other hand, is an energy source that can be used efficiently by body cells. Slowly but surely we are learning more about this 'super fuel' of the body, but there is still plenty to discover!
Ketones as premium fuel
Much research is being done into the effects of a ketogenic metabolism on the body. Some researchers suspect that the body prefers giving to the combustion of ketones, but since glucose burns faster and is easier converted by the body than other forms of energy, it is still the primary source of energy when present in our body. Bottom line, however: ketogenic 'fat burning' is more efficient than 'sugar burning', because on balance ketones deliver more energy and produce less waste than glucose. Ketones function as the body’s true premium fuel: a fuel marked by a clean combustion and which also benefits "engine maintenance".
In 2010 American organic chemist Patrick Arnold - known as "father of prohormones" owing to his previous discoveries - was awarded an application from the University of Florida to chemically produce beta- hydroxybutyrate (BHB) for research purposes. Once the chemist succeeded, very interesting experiments could be done with the substance. Patrick Arnold was also impressed by the experiments and suddenly saw new possibilities for the use of this substance. He set to work and the result of his research process was a new product: a compound of BHB with sodium and calcium. In the years that followed, he developed a high-quality line of various products containing exogenous ketones in the form of BHB linked to minerals including KetoCaNa, KetoForce and KetoBlitz -- all under the name KetoSports.
