Ketones, produced by the liver

"Your body naturally goes into ketosis when you go for several days with low or restricted carbohydrate in your diet. The main ketones produced within the body are beta-hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate and acetone. Ketones are produced by the liver from fat and provide an energy source that acts as a substitute for glucose for the cells of the body to produce ATP."

Brianna Stubbs, Olympic Medalist, DPhil (PhD) in Physiology in Ketosis
