The Benefits of Ketosis

Home 9 Brain Health 9 The Benefits of Ketosis

Epilepsy, Endurance, Energy and Weight Loss

Did you know that a cure for epilepsy, discovered in the 1920’s is now the ‘new big thing’ in the health and fitness industry? Learn more in the video, including the ‘1 hour keto cheat’

It’s called the ketogenic diet and it was originally developed to treat epilepsy.  The strict ketogenic diet consists of about 90% fat, however a well research, much more sustainable ‘Modified Atkins’ version is

  • 70% fat
  • 20% protein
  • 5% carbs

At first glance, you may think all that fat is a bad thing, and it certainly will be if you are eating rubbish, processed fats. It’s a lot of effort, and a big change, but if you can stick with it and you are eating good quality healthy fats though, this is the list of possible benefits:

  • Weight Loss
  • Reverses diabetes
  • Starves cancer cells
  • Treats heart disease
  • Reverses non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Cures polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Helps MS
  • Helps Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Helps Parkinson’s’
  • Decreases inflammation (which improves acne, arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, IBS, pain, etc…)
  • Up-regulation of brain mitochondria and mitochondrial enzymes: Focus, memory, clarty,
  • Mood
  • Hormone control
  • Improved fertility
  • Improved energy
  • Better sleep
  • Assisting gastrointestinal and gallbladder health (less heartburn and acid reflux, less risk for gallstones, improved digestion, less gas and bloating)
  • Muscle strength, building and endurance
  • Ketosis turns on the SiRT-1 gene that helps extend life

Pretty impressive, and the really good news, is there is now a way to get into ketosis, within an hour, without having to change your diet.

I share some more facts, including the cheat method in the video.
