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.

Ketones Coconut Oil and MCT oil for Brain Health

Global Virtual Keto Summit February 2022

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.  Watch video here

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.



Other Conditions That May Be Helped by Coconut, MCT Oil & Keto Diet

In addition to Alzheimer’s, other conditions like Parkinson’s, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, ALS, autism, epilepsy and more, where poor glucose uptake into brain and other cells is at play.


Ketones Help Burn Fat to Lose Weight

Ketones stimulate fat burning during fasting and with low-carb keto (ketogenic) diet. Ketones also suppress appetite which makes it easier to eat less and lose weight while preserving muscle. Ketone supplements can further enhance this effect.
