Fuel/Energy Source
GoBHB is a patented and self-affirmed GRAS supplemental form of the BHB ketone body bound to mineral salts. It provides an exogenous source
of ketones to help achieve ketosis without a ketogenic diet. 

The first human study suggesting that exogenous ketones could rapidly increase the level of ketones in the blood was published in 2012. Healthy
male and female subjects had elevated plasma levels of BHB and acetoacetate following the administration of a single dose of a ketone monoester delivered at 140, 357, or 714 mg/kg body weight in a meal replacement drink. The same three doses were administered three times daily over a five-day period to assess safety and tolerance. BHB levels remained elevated, but some gastrointestinal effects were reported and attributed to the large volumes of the milk-based drink, not the BHB.*[2]

Performance
It has been hypothesized that during exercise, ketones essentially function as a “fourth” fuel source. They don’t necessarily provide an advantage
over carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, but they possibly preserve endogenous fuel. Limiting the breakdown of carbohydrates for energy during exercise might reduce fatigue and lactate accumulation,[3] two factors that are likely to affect athletic performance. 

In five separate studies of high-performance athletes, the effects of exogenous ketone esters on induced ketosis for physical endurance were studied. Ketosis decreased muscle glycolysis and plasma lactate concentrations while providing an alternative fuel substrate. Ketosis also increased intramuscular triacylglycerol oxidation during exercise, even in the presence of normal muscle glycogen, co-ingested carbohydrate, and elevated insulin. These findings suggest a positive effect of exogenous ketones for improvement of performance.[5] 

Cognitive

Although glucose is the predominant brain fuel, ketones are utilized when glucose is not available. When an individual is fasting, strenuously exercising,
or on a ketogenic diet, the brain becomes receptive to ketone bodies as an
alternative fuel. This was demonstrated in a study in adult subjects (n = 4) in
whom ketones were shown to rapidly cross the blood-brain barrier and provide
brain neurons with energy.[12] This efficient utilization has been suggested
to play a role in the improvement of memory, focus, and cognition when
affected regions of the brain lose capacity to harness sufficient energy from
glucose.*[11,13,14]

Medium-Chain Triglycerides
Slenderella KETONES provides a patented medium-chain triglyceride (MCT)
powder with a high caprylic and capric acid content (C8/C10) that also contains
acacia fiber, a prebiotic that may promote gut health and help optimize the
gut-brain axis. MCTs are easily absorbed, permeate the mitochondria without
the aid of enzymes, and provide a quick energy source without impacting
insulin levels. Unlike other dietary fats, MCTs are not stored as body fat to any
significant degree. The liver metabolizes the MCTs into ketones, which can
then be used as alternative energy sources for brain cells if they are deprived
of glucose.*

In a 90-day, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group
study, subjects (n = 152) with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease were
given an oral ketogenic MCT compound to determine if ketosis could affect
cognitive performance. Significantly elevated levels of BHB were seen two
hours after administration when compared to placebo. Correspondingly,
elevated BHB levels resulted in significant differences in Alzheimer’s
Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog) scores when
compared to placebo.*[16]
