Your brain LOVES ketones!
I just spent four days at a conference listening to our nation’s top doctors in the world of nutrition and detoxing.
One thing became extremely clear to me this weekend…
The ketogenic diet puts the body in a massive healing state.
Thousands of research studies are now proving ketones supercharge the brain, shrink cancer tumors, repair the microbiome, and accelerate weight loss.
The ketogenic diet is not a fad diet. It’s here to stay.
Here’s the deal: our brain can only use two fuel sources…sugar or ketones.
Most people have been eating such a high carb diet that their brain only knows how to use sugar for fuel. And just like your body gets insulin resistant from the constant influx of sugar, your brain can become insulin resistant as well.
When your brain becomes insulin resistant, the extra insulin will start cause amyloid plaques to form.
What do amyloid plaques cause? Alzheimer’s, dementia, memory loss, and brain fog.
In fact, Alzheimer’s is now being called diabetes of the brain.
Getting your body to start producing ketones is a critical step in keeping your brain healthy as you age.
So if you have been waiting for the low carb craze to pass so that you can go back to eating oatmeal for breakfast again, you may be waiting a long time.
The ketogenic diet is the most powerful nutritional tool you can use to keep your brain healthy.
If you want to know more about how to get into ketosis, here is a blog post that gives you all the do’s and don’ts.
Keep on your ketogenic path! Your brain will thank you!!
