Can ketones slow down Alzheimers -IHMC Lecture
Dr Stephen Cunnane is one of the leading researchers looking at Ketones, the ketogenic diet and Alzheimers disease and cognitive decline or impairment.
If you’ve not got time to listen to the complete presentation then here are some takeaways
- As we age we uptake glucose less well so the brain does not get fuelled optimally
- The brain suffering from cognitive decline is able to uptake and metabolise ketones and do so VERY WELL.
- The Brain loves ketones…the more you add the more they are used.
- Exercise helps improve ketone metabolism
