HVMN can deservedly be called a breakthrough product.
The result of research into the power of ketones derived from coconut oil, HVMN ketone ester is the essential ingredient isolated for ultimate availability, developed by Professor Kieran Clarke and Dr. Richard Veech.
It’s expensive to extract and expensive to package. Hence the small size.
However… having had our own issues with cognition in the past, and having used coconut oil and studied its performance over the last six years, we’ve been waiting for this product. We’ve made the decision to sell it at cost in Australia- simply because we believe it should be available to people like us who need it. Each bottle is 1 full serve for athletic purposes.
Here are the claims its inventors make.
(If you are really interested, we suggest spending time on the US site to check the science.)
Improved cognitive performance.
Ketones: the preferred fuel for your brain. It can cross your blood-brain barrier as a highly efficient fuel for neurons3.
Long races are mentally exhausting. Improve and sustain peak cognitive performance during exercise3.
HVMN Ketone provides a fuel source that’s 28% more efficient per unit oxygen than carbohydrate1.
Burn ketones and carbohydrate simultaneously. Obtain metabolic benefits of ketosis without a ketogenic diet1.
The ΔG® ketone ester was invented by Oxford and NIH scientists as part of DARPA “Metabolic Dominance” Program.
Protected by a family of US and Global Patents exclusive to HVMN.
Elevates blood ketone levels to 3-5 mM in 30 minutes without a salt, acid, or fat load.
Accelerate muscle protein and glycogen resynthesis by 2.5x1.
Reduce lactic acid production by 50%1.
Activate natural anti-inflammatory and longevity pathways4.
HVMN Ketone enhances endurance performance. In an award-winning scientific study conducted at Oxford University, elite cyclists rode 400+ meters further in a 30-minute trial when fueled with HVMN Ketone1.
“The first time I tried HVMN Ketone in training, a 50-minute time trial felt like 30 minutes. I was so focused and had much more energy in my legs. The combination of mental lucidity and extra physical energy was strong and effective.”
Vittoria Bussi broke the UCI Hour world record on 2018-09-13 while fueling with HVMN Ketone. Vittoria rode 48,007 meters in 1 hour, the furthest ever ridden in 1 hour by a woman.
What’s the history behind the ketone ester?
Oxford, NIH, and DARPA scientists led by Professor Kieran Clarke and Dr. Richard Veech invented the ketone ester in HVMN Ketone under the 2003 DARPA “Metabolic Dominance” program to develop foods to enhance US soldier physical and cognitive performance.
HVMN exclusively licensed the patents in 2016 and worked (and continues to work) in close partnership with the original researchers to bring ketone ester to the world in 2018. All other “ketone esters” on the market are falsely advertising, selling an adulterated product, and/or stealing intellectual property from the inventors.
How does HVMN Ketone work?
HVMN Ketone is the world’s first ketone ester drink. HVMN Ketone contains no caffeine, no sugar—only pure, natural energy from ketones to help you reach peak performance. Learn More
Exogenous ketone esters allow the body to use both ketones and carbohydrates for fuel at the same time, not possible with any other nutritional strategy.
Why does HVMN Ketone cost so much?
HVMN Ketone’s ketone ester is a novel technology and is still very expensive to manufacture. We hope to bring down the cost per unit as more people buy and adopt HVMN Ketone into their life. More production of HVMN Ketone allows us to get economy of scale.
You’ll pay more now so we can charge less later. A good investment.
Is HVMN Ketone approved/certified for sporting use?
Yes. HVMN Ketone is an NSF Certified for Sport, compliant with World Anti-Doping Agency regulation and is regulated by the FDA as a food ingredient (GRAS).
- HVMN Ketone is most effective for endurance exercise lasting an hour or more,
- Drink one serving 30 minutes before exercise with usual pre-workout fuel (carbs, caffeine, etc.),
- For extended endurance exercise (2+ hours), consume an additional serving every 1.5 – 2 hours with usual carbs.
Drink one serving 30 minutes after exercise with normal post-workout nutrition (protein, carbs, etc.)
For other purposes including ketosis
Drink one 5ml serve. (Max 5 per bottle.)
