Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

My Experience with Exogenous Ketones: Tale and Truth

By Mark Sisson
87 Comments

My results, written on white paperI woke up the morning of the ceremony with butterflies in my stomach. I’d done the necessary prep. I’d abstained from carbs the past week and food the past 24 hours. I’d performed four consecutive full-body circuit workouts to deplete muscle glycogen, and undergone a liver biopsy to confirm full depletion of liver glycogen. I wasn’t taking any chances. Although I had extensive experience generating endogenous ketones and subsisting on my own body fat, exogenous ketones were another matter entirely. You don’t want to mess around with a holy sacrament without doing due diligence.

Holy sacrament? Yes.

According to ethnographic accounts from early Arctic explorers who encountered the sacred compound, the exogenous ketone was developed by traditional peoples of the wintry north. No one’s quite sure where it arose first—Siberia, Greenland, Alaska, Lapland. What they do know is that these societies revered the type 1 diabetic, a rare find in the pre-contact Arctic. Using an admittedly grisly and cruel process, these groups would starve the tribe’s diabetic to induce ketoacidosis, harvest the ketone-rich urine, and reduce it slowly to a ketone-rich tar over a wood fire. Tribe shamans would dissolve the tar in pine needle tea and distribute it to members exclusively before hunting trips, warfare, and any other activity requiring optimal physical and mental function to boost energy and improve performance. As Mark Twain famously quipped, “The strongest coffee I ever had was a Laplander’s piss.”

So when I showed up to the small building on the edge of town on a rainy evening, I was anxious. What was I in for? The solemn countenances worn by my two guides for the day—Dr. Peter Attia, wearing dark robes and swinging a thurible loaded with burning MCT oil, and Gary Taubes, face smeared with bacon grease, body adorned with wreaths of stevia leaf—impressed upon me the import of the approaching ceremony.

Detractors are scoffing already. “Sisson, you’re degrading yourself taking the shortcut to ketones with a pill. Instead, spend years sweeping the ashram, maintaining a low-carb, high-fat diet, and doing low-level aerobic activity just shy of the anaerobic threshold to boost mitochondrial fat-burning capacity and generate ketones on command. There are Sami gurus who can produce so many ketones in their saliva that a single French kiss from one will boost your IQ one standard deviation for a day. That’s true power—freedom from reliance on a ketone powder.”

Maybe so. But as I said, I’ve been there already. I’ve lived that life for more than a decade. I’ve long been convinced of the merits of a fat-based metabolism, and now I wanted to push the boundaries. To build on the existing scaffolding.

So I took the ketones, Jimmy Moore effigy made of coconut husks and pork rinds looking on.

All the universe unfolded before me. I was discovering solutions to long-standing problems—business disputes, moral quandaries, plans for the future—before consciously considering them. I’d think about a problem and discover my ketone-enhanced brain had already solved it. If I closed my eyes, I could actually hear the whirr of my mitochondria churning through all the additional ketone bodies. I flung open the temple door and practically sprinted through the hills, covering five miles at 4:15 per without breaking the anaerobic threshold and returning only to purge through both ends.

“All part of the process,” Attia said, handing me a bucket and washcloth.

Jokes aside, I have been playing with ketones. Over the past couple years, I’ve tried a lot of ketone supplements, from KetoCaNa, Pruvit, Kegenix, to a few others. I’ve even accepted and tried a one-off from a person trying to break into the market who I failed to thoroughly vet; that time, I felt like I might die. No joke.

What have I noticed?

There is usually some GI discomfort, occasionally outright distress that’s only relieved once there’s nothing left to give. So you have to plan for that.

About half the time I’ll take ketones right before Sunday Ultimate Frisbee matches. It provides a discernible extra burst of speed during the game, more overall energy (I just feel like “going” more), and less soreness the next day. I speculate that my ability to hit higher performance levels without dipping as deep into anaerobic territory is less stressful overall on my body, so I recover more quickly and with less pain.

There’s also the potential for ketones being anti-inflammatory. Sure enough, exogenous ketones seem to have an anti-inflammatory effect, suppressing expression of an inflammasome involved in various disease states. Some research shows that blocking the inflammasome by deleting the gene responsible for it protects against arthritis in rodents. If the same is true for humans using ketones, that—along with my increased intake of collagen—might explain why I’ve made a strong recovery from serious Achilles’ tendinosis.

I recently did another long fast of over two days. Prior to ketone usage, two days was really rough. I could do it, but I wasn’t happy. This time using a small dose of ketones throughout the first day really helped me through the rough patches. In fact, those rough patches never came. 48 hours was a relative breeze.

I don’t know how much these supplements would help someone on a standard higher-carb diet. It’s clearly a good performance booster on its own, but I think this stuff should be complemented by a foundation of fat and keto-adapted eating which provides a robust infrastructure set up to handle ketones. Longer-term fat-adaptation is the powerful trigger for mitochondrial biogenesis—so you have the extra mitochondria necessary to wring every last drop out of those ketones. You need to look at the long picture here.

Anyway, after the busy holiday I wanted to have a little fun and provide some real actionable information for this post. Hope you all dug it. I’m truly excited about this ketone stuff, and I’m actually feverishly working on a breakthrough new book about keto-adapted eating, living and performing that should come out around Fall 2017. Details TBA.

Thanks for reading, everyone. Have you tried ketone salts or esters? What do you think? What have you noticed?

Take care!

I admit I had no idea what this article was going on about and had to do a bit of research.

I just want to be able to maintain sufficient fitness for an active, pain-free lifestyle as I continue to get older.

Hi Sharon – just curious, are you consistently in ketosis, measured by ketostix and/or blood tests? Are you just in the very light purple region? If so, I’d suggest reducing a bit of protein and increasing fat. I swear, I was in light purple for months but never experienced the energy I do now. I did a ton of reading on it now that I’m an athlete and I was eating too much protein (that was kicking me out of deep ketosis) and not enough fat. Now I’m pouring MCT and butter into my coffee like crazy and my body… Read more »

Interesting stuff, Mark. Funny enough, my bottle of collagen hydrolysate has become my new best friend, especially when I’m on the road and have no access to quality bone broth. I put it in everything from flourless pancakes to store-bought stocks and sauces. I even sneak some in my one-year-old daughter’s soaked oats when she’s not looking 😉

KetoCaNa has become a staple of mine for both sports & big meeting days at work. The benefits are immediate & very noticeable, both physically & mentally. Great when you want to do a 1 rep max or be on your game in a meeting.
The GI distress Mark mentions is very real. having a daily dose of unmodified potato starch goes a long way to mitigate.

I was able to keep a thread of that connection alive by conducting weekly fasts from Sat – Sun. Unfortunately I experienced adrenal fatigue and haven’t done a 24 hour fast for at least 3 years. While I didn’t want to let go of IF either, introducing breakfast has done wonders for my body! Introducing… Read more »

I’ve only recently discovered that I’m also dealing with adrenal fatigue and likely have been for several years. I crossfit like a fiend and have been eating keto for 6 months and Paleo for 5 years prior yet kept putting on weight. I started using pruvit keto//os in February and didn’t notice any difference after 3 months (and like $500!!!) and gave up. Doing more research now and considering giving it another shot but agree it would be really nice to see something on the market that wouldn’t require a second mortgage on my home!

My fasted stated is an easy 16 hours now, sometimes longer and I’m not suffering. Yay to that 🙂 I’ve lost 19 pounds so far. I’m looking at it as a training tool, to get my body used to eating less.

I use Keto OS, there’s a video at keto3.com called “how it works” — it’s how all ketones work. Have you tried the keto diet? IMO, for a lot of people, there’s no other way to lose weight. Blood sugar must be controlled and insulin resistance reversed so your body stops craving sugar and starts burning fat rather than storing it. I also do IF, intermittent fasting. IF is extremely beneficial in a lot of ways, particularly helpful with fat loss. Mark Mattson has a great interview with Dom D’Agostino, easy to find on a search. Mattson is like the… Read more »

Sydney I’m right there with you. Didn’t realize at the time of doing regular weekly fasts and IF’s every day that the reason why I couldn’t sleep was due to fasting and being low carb. I’ve heard if you sprinkle sea salt in your water and take electrolytes along with BCAAs it helps with the sleep. I’m back to tinkering around with macro ratios and generally toward a fat enriched diet to glean some of the benefits from this way of eating.

You are experiencing the release of toxins sequestered in body fat you are using for fuel. Toxins make you pee lots and make hearts race and other horrid side effects like disaster pants. I use activated charcoal between meals away from nutrition to bind to toxins in bile and escort them out of the body instead of being reabsorbed. I also put collagen in my bulletproof coffee if I am trying to avoid adrenal problems. And eat sweet potato if I do get close to adrenal exhaustion.

Sydney

Thanks Hilary. Would love more data on the toxin release theory. I see that posited a lot as a cause but very few hard facts. My understanding is that the heart pounding is a result of an adrenaline/noradenaline response to ketosis. Unless I work closely with someone thoroughly qualified and experienced with this reaction, unwilling to bio hack it. Maintenance is my goal at this point. Not weight loss. But I am impressed by the performance enhancements Mark et al seem to be getting from it. Just wish there was more data rather than anecdotal experience out there. In time,… Read more »

Although right now, I’m past the major toxin release part. It only happens for me at the beginning of the fat loss. Two big helps to avoiding adrenal insufficiency — the new name/theory — are meditation and adequate sleep. The trick is to manage that cortisol.

Sharon you are right on the money about the salt. Being in ketosis actually increases sodium excretion by the kidneys. That is why it is important to add salt to your food, both in cooking and to taste on your plate, and to have your broth either home made(with lots of salt) or a salt supplement as a replacement. If you don’t you can look forward to symptoms like constipation, fatigue, mental confusion, heart palpitations and muscle cramps just to name a few. So get tucked into the salt and check you blood pressure every now and then as you… Read more »

I’ve been experimenting with exogenous ketones as well, as I didn’t love the extended fasts and middling results I was getting after 2-3 days of fasting. After a lot of testing (and trying the brands you mentioned), I found that the brand Perfect Keto worked best for me. Where PK raised my blood ketone levels by 0.7mmol, the other two I tried (KetoCana and Pruvit) only raised blood ketone levels by 0.3 and 0.2mmol respectively.

In my current job, I work 10 hour shifts, mostly walking, not enough break time to eat sufficiently. At the end of the day, I’m starving, cave to sugar cravings, and so goes the downward spiral. It seems like, if I eat a big, fatty breakfast, I have a chance to avoid stuffing myself before bed. Maybe exogenous ketones and a good food management plan could get me over the hump. I certainly have some doubts.
