What Is Gluconeogenesis?

Gluconeogenesis (GNG) is the metabolic process that ensures our cells have the fuel they need from non sugars and carbohydrate foods.

Glucose can be produced from fats and proteins by the body naturally. This means the body does not need to consume carbs, and sugars for ‘energy’.

A keto diet supports gluconeogenesis.

Gluconeogenesis, a term derived from Greek roots meaning “glucose” (glukus), “new” (neo), and “formation” (genesis), is a vital metabolic pathway in living organisms, including humans. It’s the process by which glucose is synthesized from non-carbohydrates.
