Following a ketogenic diet can…
- Help reverse diabetes, if done at a clinical level – which maintains approximately 90% caloric intake from fats.
- Be beneficial for Alzheimer’s, as ketones are easily absorbed by damaged brain tissue unfit to respond to a carbohydrate diet.
- Decrease the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, such as fatigue, pain and cognitive impairment.
- Treat epilepsy, especially with children. The clinical keto diet has been used since the 1920s to treat this condition.
- Help relax an autistic brain as the fat intake supports neurotransmission.
- Help to reverse certain cancer growth (though research before embarking – while many cancers feed off sugars and keto definitely helps restrict this, some cancers like prostate cancer feed off fats).
- Give you astounding lasting weight loss results – if your body only has fat as an energy source, it will be a fat-burning machine.
- Improve your health in the long run as the diet is low in deuterium and high in nutrition.
- Reset your taste buds and cravings, which is great for enjoying food and spending less money on bad nutrition!
- Protect the body from free radicals through ketones, and nuclear radiation – hence it is a useful biohack before embarking on a flight.
