Dominic D’Agostino's ketone technology from

the University of South Florida

Informative TED talk from Dr. Domenic D'Agostino on the impact that ketogenic agents can have on neurological disorders. Dr. D'Agostino continues to lead the charge in studying ketosis and his patented technology is what we use to power our product. Take a listen to learn more about the positive benefits of ketones.

Dr. D'Agostino is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida College Of Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology where he develops and tests metabolic therapies, including alternative energy substrates and ketogenic agents for neurological disorders, cancer and wound healing. While studying the effects of gasses on the brains of Navy Seal divers, he developed an approach for metabolically starving cancer cells through diet and compressed oxygen, replacing chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation.

Our Story 

Kegenix discovered how powerful ketones were by following the work Dr. Dominic D’Agostino did with Navy Seals. He was able to solve their seizure issues when using rebreathers during their missions. Dr. D'Agostino discovered that when the Seals were in a ketogenic state, their seizures stopped. This is very similar to what happens to people who suffer from epilepsy. During discussions with Dr. D’Agostino, he pointed out how powerful ketones were in dealing with other metabolic issues and overall general health. The brain, organs, and tissues see ketones as their preferred fuel source over glucose.

There are now hundreds of credible university studies showing the benefits of ketones and living a ketogenic lifestyle. The problem, however, is getting into and sustaining a ketogenic state. It takes a lot of discipline and can even be a painful process.

This is where Kegenix stepped in. 
We developed a product that puts ketones directly into your body. Rob Rogers and Gary Millet, the founders of Kegenix, believe in the power of ketones to help people. They licensed the D’Agostino ketone technology from the University of South Florida, in the hopes they could develop a product that made getting into, and sustaining a ketogenic state, simple and easy. After 4 years of work, Kegenix was released. And now, its second-generation product, PRIME, makes the transition to (60 minutes), and sustainment of a ketogenic lifestyle simple, painless and most of all, EASY.

Kegenix PRIME is the most powerful exogenous ketone supplement in the market. This Kegenix supplement integrates BHB Quad Salts with special Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) and other proprietary ingredients and manufacturing methods.  

The benefits of being in a ketogenic state are numerous, and more are being discovered every day. Our mission at Kegenix, and the passion of Rob and Gary, is not just helping you get into ketosis. It is helping you sustain a ketogenic state in the easiest way possible to improve your health. Contact us to learn more about our products and the ketonic diet.
