Beta amino ketones: Molindone hydrochloride

Beta amino ketones are a specific group of ketone bodies that are produced during the breakdown of fatty acids.

Beta Amino Ketones

Beta amino ketones are a specific group of ketone bodies that are produced during the breakdown of fatty acids.

Beta amino ketones can be used by the body for energy in two different ways.
  • First, they can be used to produce energy directly through the beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) pathway.
  • Second, they can be converted into glucose, which can then be used for energy.
There are several different types of beta amino ketones, but the most common one is beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). Other types of beta amino ketones include acetoacetate (ACA) and acetone.

ACA is produced in the liver from fatty acids and acetone is a by-product of the ketone body production process.
