New KetoneAid – How To Get All The Effects Of Alcohol *Without* Drinking Wine, Beer, or Cocktails
You may have heard me talking lately about how I’ve been enjoying an evening cocktail comprised of ketones instead of alcohol. This drink is a shockingly close equivalent to both the taste and effect of popular drinks like Gin & Tonic, Moscow Mule, Pina Colada, etc., but without any toxic side effects of alcohol (while I have no problem with a glass or two of organic, biodynamic red wine or a healthy cocktail here and there, it’s been really nice to have a tasty alternative).
The company that makes the drinks I’ve been consuming – KetoneAid (https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/ketoneaid) – was founded by my guest on today’s podcast, Mr. Frank LLosa, a serial entrepreneur who has an incredible track record of success in a number of fields from real estate, to highly technical photography for National Geographic, to one of the first cloud-based storage systems available to the public.
Also formerly an elite Division I track athlete, Frank currently incorporates biohacking to stay competitive in all his endeavors, including a vegan ketogenic diet, hitting levels over 8.0mm on diet alone (as mentioned in a podcast with Dave Asprey, CEO of Bulletproof, where Frank made a cameo at the end).
Beer, wine, and spirits all contain the same type of alcohol, called ethanol. If you’re into the keto diet, you want to avoid ethanol. While many other companies had tried to create a non-ethanol alcohol, none had succeeded. But Frank has a unique ability to find a path where others have failed, and he was determined to use that skill set to find a way to make the world’s first non-ethanol ketogenic alcohol (spoiler alert: he did it).
The first roadblock to bringing the product to market was finding a commercial laboratory able to actually make the ketone ester at scale and under $100 a serving (Dave Asprey spent $25k for one serving in 2015!). Frank and his team were warned in advance that multiple huge public companies over the last ten years had tried and failed to deliver the ketone ester at an acceptable purity level and price.
Frank’s team contacted hundreds of labs within six months to find the perfect partner. Ultimately, they needed to buy all the necessary equipment three separate times to scale from bench to pilot and ultimately to full-scale production. Working together as a team, they succeeded in making small batches of the purest ketone ester ever tested – and that’s what I’ve been drinking.
