Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania intend to evaluate the effects of ketone ester on the consumption of alcohol and brain function.
Ketone ester is a type of sports drink that increases an energy source in your body called ketone bodies. The ketone ester drink has been used regularly for endurance sporters. Ketone bodies are normally produced by your liver when you fast several days. They put your body in a state called “metabolic ketosis” in which the body and brain use ketone bodies instead of glucose as an energy source.
Our study will test whether the ketone ester, when compared to an inactive placebo helps people to
reduce their drinking.
