Glucose is the predominant fuel for the brain, but cannot supply adequate fuel to the AD brain, putting the brain at risk for starvation and exhaustion. However, when ketones become available, the brain will preferentially take up and utilize them as fuel, even in the presence of glucose.
The current treatment protocol for type 2 diabetic patients admitted to the hospital largely ignores the more current and progressive understanding of the underlying pathological process that leads to the development of the disease. Current management does not consider recent advances in metabolic research.
We tested Space Shake, a high-fat meal replacement, creamer, drink. See what we found!
It is no secret that there is a lot of interest around the ketogenic diet for weight loss. Entering and sustaining ketosis, however, is no walk in the park.
Migraine is not simply a “bad headache”, it is a in fact a neurological disorder and can be extremely debilitating, ultimately affecting quality of life. There is an increasing amount of evidence suggesting migraine is a response to brain energy deficiency or oxidative stress levels that exceed antioxidant capacity.
In a recent review paper, inflammation-mediated muscle wasting is highlighted, as it is known that inflammation and oxidative stress pathologically underpin and drive muscle wasting.
We discuss our recent publication showing that ketone supplemented food significantly decreased the lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation and consequently decreased seizure activity.
Recently we attended the Metabolic Health Summit, here we share an overview about the experience
A new study from our team has been recently published demonstrating that ketones can protect the brain from the oxidative stress and metabolic dysregulation caused by the high oxygen environment.
About 1% of people in the world have schizophrenia, a brain disease where people can’t perceive reality normally. In this article we cover how the ketogenic diet may work as a metabolic therapy to improve several aspects of metabolism and inflammation that have otherwise gone awry in schizophrenia.
