"Exogenous ketones for athletic performance, recovery and adaptation.” Exogenous ketones are a novel tool that athletes can use to alter their metabolism in ways that might help with performance. This talk will cover the background to the different types of exogenous ketones and how they differ from the state of endogenous ketosis and then focus on the data exploring the effects of exogenous ketones on performance and recovery.
Dr. Stubbs is a world expert in exogenous ketone metabolism and its implications for performance, resilience and health-span. She completed her PhD in Metabolic Physiology at the University of Oxford, studying the metabolism and the application of exogenous ketone salts and esters. Whilst completing her studies, she competed on the British International Rowing Team, and was a two-time World Champion lightweight athlete. Brianna spent two years as Research Lead at a San Francisco based start-up called HVMN, where she helped to launch the world's first commercially available ketone ester drink and set up a collaboration with the US Special Operations Command to investigate the effects of ketone drinks on physical and cognitive performance in extreme environments. Brianna is currently Lead Translational Scientist at The Buck Institute for Research on Aging where she's part of a team focused on developing our understanding of ketone biology, the metabolic effects of novel exogenous ketones, and the translation of these findings into tools for implementation as part of a holistic approach to healthy aging.
