T delta S

 

Brianna Stubbs is an employee of T delta S and a DPhil student at Oxford University. T delta S is dedicated to developing metabolic products to enhance physical and cognitive performance. Brianna is working on their product “ΔG” which is a ketone monoester that can be given in a drink to raise levels of ketones circulating in the blood stream. ΔG has several potential applications, including as a sports supplement or as a nutraceutical in diseases where metabolic perturbations or oxidative stress occur.  

 

Ketones are the body’s evolutionary answer to starvation- in a healthy person they are produced from fat stores when other fuels are lacking, they allow the maintenance of physical and cognitive performance and stop potentially harmful protein breakdown.

 

Previous work in rats and in humans has suggested that providing supplemental ketones as an energy source could have several advantages over other metabolic fuels. Brianna’s project will build on current knowledge, firstly to better understand the uptake and elimination of the ketone drink before moving onto studies designed to measure the effect of ketones on cognitive performance and skeletal and cardiac muscle metabolism during prolonged exercise. We believe that ketone bodies are not only acting as a fuel themselves but also influencing how the body is able to use conventional fuel sources and Brianna’s experiments will be targeted to help understand these complex interactions.
