Product developed in Tampa Bay playing key role in Keto craze

Local News

A popular product line developed in Tampa Bay is playing a key role in the Keto craze.

Real Ketone is a collaboration between a top USF researcher and the co-founders of Real Ketones.  It’s a product designed to guide a person’s body into ketosis, without the extreme diet restraint of no carbs.

USF’s Dr. Dominic D’Agostino created the ketone formula six years ago and worked with Real Ketones co-founders to roll out a product line designed to help guide a person’s body into ketosis without the extreme no-carb demands of a typical keto diet.

“Bottom line is through Dominic we where able to create this product which is a combination of beta hydroxybutyrate and MCT, which does that magic, so that formula is unique, and we are the only ones in the market that has that formula.” said Rob Rogers, a Real Ketones founder.

For six years, the Real Ketones team has been researching how the ketone helps the body burn fat, how it is easily absorbed into the central nervous system, and is possibly heart healthy.

The study also focused heavily on alertness and energy.

“So all of a sudden you get two-and-half times the energy with Ketone than you do with glucose when your body is processing it, it produces 45 times less free radicals than when you are eating carbs and gluclose,” said Gary Millet, a Real Ketones co-founder.

Real Ketone is now available nationwide. Learn more here.
