BETA-HYDROXYBUTYRATE (BHB) is being called a top fuel to the body. BHB may also have more benefits than just efficient energy production.

A study found that BHB may have antidepressant and antianxiety type of effects when it was shown to prevent neuroinflammation in the hippocampus (see ).

BHB may be useful for preventing diseases triggered by inflammation and may help treat inflammatory skin diseases like acne, psoriasis, varicose ulcers, allergic reactions, and skin photosensitivity (see ) and may even help with increasing lifespan (see ).

You may benefit from the Keto diet and then adding BHB supplementation which could raise BHB levels quickly. We can get you a really good and BHB supplement with patented goBHB, as seen on our website at
