What is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a metabolic state where most of the body's energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis where blood
glucose provides most of the energy. Ketosis is characterized by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 millimolar with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. However, with ketone supplementation Ketosis can actually be induced even when there are high levels of blood glucose.
