Today I add a new category; FAQ. Many beginners of keto diet + intermittent fasting are confused about some terms. There are also many frequently asked questions. Here I give some answers from “how many ketone range for ketosis?”. Previously, we brief acquaintance first with the term ketone. Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

What is Ketone?

Ketone is a molecule that Liver produces from Fat degradation (Fatty Acid) as a substitute for Glucose in the brain, and can be used by all cells in the human body, except Liver itself which only uses “Free Fatty Acid” for its metabolism substrates.

All cells in the human body can use Ketone or Free Fatty Acid to be converted into energy in “Mitochondria” (cell energy generator) instead of Glucose. But only brain cells are capable of using Ketones because only Ketone is able to cross into the brain, because of its size is small enough to penetrate the “Blood Brain Barrier” (Coating and Blood Filters in the brain). Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

Where did Ketone come from?

Ketone comes from Fat degradation (Fatty Acid) in the body, when blood glucose (blood sugar) decreases. Ketones are only produced by the Liver such as Fasting, High-intensity Sports, and Low Carbohydrate Feeding (low source Glucose). Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

What is the normal size of Ketone in the Fastosis program?

This is the main topic of this post. The optimal target Blood Ketone in the Fastosis program is 2.2 mMol to 6 mMol, or when through Urinalysis check, the target is +2 to +4. For additional information about ketone, you can read the text below. Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

How many types of Ketone in the body?

Ketone, or so-called “Ketone Bodies”, consists of 3 molecules of “Aceto-acetate”, “Beta Hydroxy-butyrate” and “Acetone”. Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

What is Ketone related to Insulin hormone that I know?

Ketone is a glucose replacement molecule that only appears when the condition of the hormone insulin in the blood is very low. When the hormone insulin is very low, the hormone antagonist (opponent) Insulin is “Glucagon” will become more dominant in the body, where the hormones Glucagon and (with) Adrenaline will trigger “Lipolysis” which is the process of degradation (decay) Triglyceride to be changed Free Fatty Acid and Glycerol, which will then be changed in Liver to Ketone (from Free Fatty Acid) and Glucose (from Glycerol). Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)

Where and when does Ketone appear in the body?

Ketone is produced exclusively in the Liver from Fatty Acid, and is only produced when the “Glycogen” reservoir in Liver is depleted, which is caused by metabolism during Fasting, or low carbohydrate Glucose source).

Why do we need Ketone?

Ketone is required during Fasting, Calorie Deficit or Low Carbohydrate, where with this Ketone present, low Blood Glucose (blood sugar) levels will not trigger a “Hypoglycemic” reaction (low blood sugar symptoms). When Ketone replaces Glucose in the brain, the brain cells will use Ketone for its energy metabolism.

Ketone has a greater “Potential” of energy than Glucose, and this Ketone metabolism will reduce the excess of the Reactive Oxyangen Species (ROS) from the Oxidation in cells (in Mitochondria) that will automatically lower the level of Inflammation (Irritation) that occurs in the brain. This applies also throughout the body, whereas when all the cells in the body use Ketone as a substitute for Glucose, then the levels of Free Radicals (ROS) above will decline. Best Blood Ketone Level for Ketosis Weight Loss – How Many / High / Range Ketones to be in Ketosis (Ketogenic Diet / Diet Keton / Fasting and Ketones)
