Dr Brianna Stubbs is back with us today to talk about the long awaited launch of the ketone mono ester supplement that the team at Oxford University led by Prof. Kieran Clarke has been working on for the the best part of 25 years!
Dr Stubbs was a previous World Rowing Champion and we discuss her experience as an elite athlete and what it take to be the best of the best.
We talk about why training to be the best is not conducive to a healthy body and how the stress of training and dieting can produce real hormonal problems.
Brianna has published two research papers recently on the metabolism of ketones in humans and how a ketone ester drink has shown to affect ghrellin and appetite which we discuss.
The application of the new ketone ester supplement is something of much debate and we clarify the current data, uses and potential future value of the ketone esters to the public.
All in all its a great way to celebrate the 100th episode of the podcast!
