The Oxford Ketone and Me: A Consumer Love Story
Humans are inherently competitive creatures. History is all the evidence we need to know that humans have been competing against each other since the dawn of time. Luckily for us, human competition has evolved. We no longer compete for scarce food resources like our ancient ancestors. We no longer fight for fame and glory like Roman gladiators. The stakes have changed. Today, we partake in more “friendly” forms of competition.
Ketosis in a Bottle
As a former D1 athlete and current triathlete, I thrive in a competitive setting. Like many people, competition against myself and others is what drives me to be better than who I was yesterday.
So, when I was first made aware that a team of National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Oxford scientists, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), had patented a new form of energy that was set to revolutionize human performance, cognitive function, and general health, I was beyond intrigued. Would this innovation be a potent catalyst for enhanced performance?
The more I researched the Oxford Ketone, an exogenous ketone ester, the more science-based evidence I found that affirmed the claims that the Oxford Ketone can:
- Increase endurance exercise capacity
- Enhance post-exercise recovery
- Supercharge metabolic processes, specifically glycemic control
- Improve natural sleeping patterns
An Ongoing Love Affair with the Oxford Ketone
I remember how eager and excited I was anticipating my first delivery of Oxford Ketone Esters. The scientific evidence behind TdeltaS’s products was undeniable, but I was anxious of its practical application. Or at least I was until I tried a bottle…
It has been almost two years since I first used the Oxford Ketone Esters, and I have never looked back. At the commencement of my relationship with the Oxford Ketone Esters, I viewed them as precious vials of liquid gold only to be used in high stake competitive environments. As I continued to receive monthly deliveries, my utilization of the esters evolved to encompass all aspects of my training and overall well-being.
And yes, I still get Christmas morning giddiness with each and every TdeltaS delivery confirmation I receive.
