Carl Franklin and Richard Morris discuss the science behind exogenous ketone supplements. Do they help with weight loss? Are they a shortcut to nutritional ketosis? What can they do for diabetics? Can they help battle cancer or dementia? These are great questions answered on this week's episode.


Richard spoke about the his blood glucose ranges changing slightly after going off Metformin. His previous dawn values were 6.1 mmol/l (110 mg/dl) and his daily range was 4.9 mmol/l (88 mg/dl) to 5.2 mmol/l (94 mg/dl). His new Dawn values are up to 6.5 mmol/l (117 mg/dl) and daily range from 5.4 mmol/l (97 mg/dl) to 5.7 mmol/l (103 mg/dl).
