From: Oral β-hydroxybutyrate increases ketonemia, decreases visceral adipocyte volume and improves serum lipid profile in Wistar rats

Fig. 2

Continuously β-hydroxybutyrate intake increases ketonemia along the day: a, b Rats continuously drinking βHB solution had a mean increase (22%) in ketonemia during experimental evening (ZT 14–16), while c, d a 51% increase was seen during experimental morning (ZT 0–1). n = 9-10 in all data. Student’s t test. *p < 0.05; ***p < 0.001. Data represent as mean (SEM)
