KETO OCH PSYKISK OHÄLSA

NIHMS551820.htmlMissa inte den här artikeln om ketogena dieter och hjärnan; hur tillstånd som t.ex. bipoläritet, depression, ångest, MS, ADHD, epilepsi, Parkinson och schizofreni förbättras genom en ketogen kost. Det här är SÅ spännande! Än så länge finns det inte mycket forskning kring nutrition och hur kosten påverkar psykiska sjukdomstillstånd (det finns liksom inte så mycket pengar att hämta här jämfört med i läkemedelsbranschen…) men det görs allt fler studier. Läs!

“What all ketogenic diets have in common is that they are very low in carbohydrate (typically 20 grams per day or less) and relatively high in fat. The goal is to lower blood sugar and insulin levels; when these are nice and low, the body naturally turns to fat (instead of sugar) as its primary source of energy. Most ketogenic diets also limit protein (to no more than the body requires), because excess protein can raise blood sugar and insulin levels to some extent. Body fat and fat from the diet then break down into ketones, which travel through the bloodstream and can be burned by various cells throughout the body, including most brain cells. Ketone levels rise in the blood, urine and breath within days, and can be measured using various home test methods, but it can take weeks for the body to become efficient at burning fat for energy, and for full benefits to be realized.”
