I’ve heard Ketone is harmful to the body, because it is poison (Keto-acidosis)? Why should a Fastosis program exist and be maintained?
Ketone is often misunderstood with the condition of “Keto-acidosis” which is a condition of systemic failure in diabetics.
Keto-acidosis occurs when insulin production decreases and blood sugar becomes high. However, low insulin condition also triggers the degradation of fat for energy at the same time. It creates the appearance of “Ketone” in large amounts of blood that is accompanied by an increase in blood sugar in large numbers, thus forming a pathological condition called Keto-acidosis.
Keto-acidosis is a condition in which “Ketone” is produced in very high amounts in the body
Keto-acidosis is a condition in which “Ketone” is produced in very high amounts in the body, which is above 15 mMol, and always accompanied by high blood sugar above 200 mg / dL.
Conditions Ketosis experienced by the perpetrators of Fastosis program is a condition where ketones form due to “conditioning” to fasting conditions and ketogenic diet (Nutritional Ketosis). The resulting autonomous ketone is the result of decreased levels of the hormone insulin and glucose in the blood, which triggers the rise of Glucagon hormone as a metabolic hormone that promotes fat. Decrease in blood glucose triggers the use of fat energy as a source of Ketones in the Liver. Ketones are produced to replace reduced glucose in the brain, so when Ketone has dominated the energy needs of the brain, there will be no “Hypoglycemic” symptoms.
The Ketone effect produced by the Fastosis program will never exceed 7 mMol of blood
The Ketone effect produced by the Fastosis program will never exceed 7 mMol of blood. However, the program targets the effectiveness standard, establishing the minimum amount of blood ketone should reach 2.2 mMol. Where it means that there has been a mastery of fasting conditions with the applied ketogenic diet. Fastosis program prioritizes the amount of fasting blood sugar that should reach a value below 80 mg / dL. Which means the condition of low blood sugar will not affect the metabolic conditions in the body that has adapted to fasting conditions.
With low blood sugar levels, it will automatically accelerate the “selectivity” of abnormal cells in the body. As well as triggering a thorough improvement that shifts the existence of various cells in the body that are not “keep up” with the condition of calories deficit and metabolism of Fat used.
Examples are “Anabolic” cells such as inflammatory immune cells, malignant cells (cancer), infected cells or pathogens, damaged / aging cells, and other abnormal cells in the body.
