Context is key: exogenous ketosis and athletic performance

Abstract:

Ketone bodies are energetically efficient metabolic substrates, which are synthesised from lipids during prolonged caloric deprivation. Once considered a simple metabolite to fuel the brain during starvation, ketone bodies are now recognised as having pleiotropic effects on metabolism, including modulating the availability and catabolism of other substrates. The combination of improved energetics and fuel sparing observed during ketosis is pivotal to maintaining energy homeostasis during star...
