Ketones are alternative fuel for the brain
and are anti-inflammatory.
These videos and podcasts explain how increasing ketones (ketosis) through consuming a keto (ketogenic) diet and/or ketone supplements can promote brain health, help burn fat and curb appetite, improve energy level, mental focus, and sleep.

Mild to moderate nutritional ketosis can help overcome insulin resistance, which is a major factor for what goes wrong in the Alzheimer’s brain. Ketones can help fill in a gap in brain energy that occurs with aging and help reduce or prevent inflammation. This presentation focuses on how ketogenic oils (MCT and coconut oils) and a healthy whole food ketogenic Mediterranean diet could promote healthy brain aging and possibly delay or prevent Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

How Ketones Help Alzheimer’s
Glucose uptake is poor in areas of brain affected by glucose but ketones are taken up normally. A diet or supplement that results in ketosis could help.
