Yes, if you are an athlete following a normal diet, you will see the greatest benefits by combining H.V.M.N. Ketone Ester with your normal pre- and post-workout carbs. The gold standard of carbohydrate consumption for athletes doing endurance exercise is ~60g/h.
However, if you are an athlete who follows a ketogenic diet, carbs are not essential. H.V.M.N. Ketone Ester will give you carb-free energy that does not trigger insulin release.
If you are taking H.V.M.N. Ketone Ester without exercising, you do not have to take it with carbs. Irrespective of your diet, H.V.M.N. Ketone Ester will raise your blood BHB levels. We recommend lowering your intake of refined carbohydrates as this is likely to have a positive impact on your health.
