What We've Done
Although they occur naturally in the body, ketone bodies are not found in meaningful quantities in any existing food or diet. Through the pioneering work of Professor Kieran Clarke and Dr Richard Veech, TΔS® has succeeded for the first time in identifying and producing a specific and proprietary precursor of ketone bodies, a ketone ester called ΔG®. ΔG® has formulated into a sports drink that elevates the levels of ketone bodies available to the brain and skeletal muscle.
ΔG® is the first in a new group of nutraceutical food products with the exciting potential to enhance physical performance and help muscle recovery. Operating at cellular level within the body, ΔG® is a proprietary ketone ester that breaks down slowly in the body to provide sustained energy release over several hours.
In a manufacturing process that is already protected by worldwide patents, TΔS® uses a proprietary process to transform the body`s natural ketone, D-beta-hydroxybutyrate, into a stable, benign ester that is suitable as a food in its own right.
Already demonstrated to enhance physical performance and slow glycogen loss in rats and humans, ΔG® shows immense potential to provide nutritional effects in a wide range of endurance sports. It has also been shown to be safe during in vivo studies conducted on both sides of the Atlantic.
