Brain Function and Ketosis

Did you know that as we age or if we have had TBI‘s or PTSD that your brain doesn’t uptake glucose into the brain?

I know that I have experienced less brain fog and clearer thinking since I have been taking exogenous ketones and using a keto lifestyle.

Part of my keto lifestyle includes intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting will give you a brain flush by clearing your mind, awakening your senses, and improving brain function.

Here is a link to an article that talks about the benefits of Intermittent fasting and brain function. https://www.businessinsider.com/fasting-diet-ketosis-brain-body-effects-2017-12

To summarize all of this information, it would seem that our brains work better while our bodies are in ketosis, whether from endogenous ketones or exogenous ketones. In TBI’s or PTSD the trauma that our brains have suffered leads to less capability of the brain being able to uptake glucose.

If you want to try intermittent fasting or ketones that put your body into ketosis in under 30 minutes, don’t hesitate to reach out. There are so many benefits other than feeding the brain, but to me as I age that is one of the biggest things.

I've been interested in healthy living for a couple of years and have been trying to find ways to do this myself and to share information to the public.
