HVMN Ketone Ester

HVMN KETONE ESTER is world-record breaking super fuel to enhance physical and cognitive performance and recovery. Developed by Oxford, NIH, and DARPA scientists. Elevates blood ketone levels to 3-5 mM (Deep Ketosis) in 30 minutes without salt, acid, or fat load.

Add the fourth macronutrient into your fueling and nutrition. Use before, during, and/or after physical activity.

Ketone Ester Per Bottle: 25g (65ml)

Effective and Safe: FDA GRAS; compliant with World Anti-Doping Agency; NSF Certified for Sport.


Train like the best. Fuel like the best

HVMN Ketone Ester can deservedly be called a breakthrough endurance product.

It is the world’s only drinkable form of the exact D-BHB Ketone produced naturally in the body.
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 with great results over the last six years, we’ve been waiting for this product. We’ve made the decision to sell it at near cost in Australia – simply because we believe it should be available to people like you who need it. Each bottle is 1 full serve for training purposes.

Here are the claims its inventors make.
(If you are really interested, we suggest spending time on the US HVMN 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.

Increased endurance performance

HVMN Ketone provides a fuel source that’s 28% more efficient per unit oxygen than carbohydrate1.

It allows you to be both carb- and ketone-loaded, a scenario that’s been proven to improve athletic endurance.

Burn ketones and carbohydrate simultaneously. Obtain metabolic benefits of ketosis without a ketogenic diet1.

Patented Ketone Ester technology

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 (Deep Ketosis) in 30 minutes without salt, acid, or fat load.

Go again, and again and again.

Why be sore?

Accelerate muscle protein and glycogen resynthesis by 2.5x1.

Reduce lactic acid production by 50%1.

Activate natural anti-inflammatory and longevity pathways4.

Go faster, Go longer.

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.

A world record-breaking fuel

“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.” Victoria Bussi, UCI Hour cycling world record breaker.

Bussi broke the UCI Hour world record on 2018-09-13 while fueling with HVMN Ketone. Bussi rode 48,007 meters in 1 hour, the furthest ever ridden in 1 hour by a woman.

Frequently asked questions

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. This is not possible with any other nutritional strategy.

Why does HVMN Ketone cost so much?

HVMN Ketone Ester is a new technology that 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 economies of scale.
You’ll pay more now so that we can charge less later. A good investment.

Is HVMN Ketone approved/certified for competitive 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).

Ketone ExplainedLearn More


For improved athletic performance

  • HVMN Ketone is most effective for endurance exercise lasting an hour or more,
  • Drink one serve 30 minutes before exercise with your 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.

For recovery

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.)

    Amazing delivery time being the next day and the best price on the product. Still assessing the benefit of the product itself. Thank you

  5. Stuart Heseltine (verified owner)

    Great product! could you supply 3 for a discounted price as per the manufacturer?

  6. Tony H. (verified owner)

    Hard to say if there was an improvement based on the product alone for sports. Felt mentally strong, focused and physically able to perform an 8 hour training session. Service to get the product was excellent. Quick delivery also. Product alone I’m still deciding, have a few more bottles to try. Will be using them on an all day event. Nothing to report about odd side effects. Taste is a little nasty … not a fan of stevia so keep a coffee handy to clean out the mouth after. Thanks for providing the product.

  7. Judy O. (verified owner)

    These are as good as they say. I’m looking forward to a time when the price reduces to that of sugar 🙂

    Mum has alzheimers and we can notice a considerable difference since using this product 🙂

    Awesome product to me during the fasting for 3 days on hydrogen and Alcoline water + Ketone with it. It’s just an amazing…
    Mind gets clear and sleepy condition goes away. Meditations are very deep and the body is full of energy and very light.

    Cures my hormonal migraine in 20mins rather than waiting several days to get into ketosis just through diet
