Host Brad Kearns gets deep into the world of ketone supplements with scientist Chris Irvin from Perfect Keto. Chris and Perfect Keto founder Dr. Anthony Gustin recently published a book called The Keto Answers Book, filled with 268 thoughtful answers to the most common questions about the ketogenic diet and ketone supplements. Chris talks about the good and the bad arising from the explosion in popularity of keto, and has an interesting take on the best use of ketone supplements. Chris mentions their effectiveness for times when you need enhanced brain function. You'll hear about possible reasons for lower than expected blood ketone readings and the surprising suggestion that you should not measure ketones first thing in the morning due to something called the "dawn effect," where you have naturally elevated glucose and low ketones upon awakening.
