The article starts by informing that the human brain requires a continuous supply of energy to feed the highly active brain cells. In case of dementia patients, it has been observed that their brain is not able to burn glucose in the most effective manner. As a result, the brain activity tends to get slower and it shrinks. In the long run, the death of brain cells may also takes place.

According to the article, the good news is that other than in advanced cases of Alzheimer’s, the patients are able to burn ketones for energy without any difficulty at all. This fact inspired a team of researchers from the University of Kansas to conduct a detailed study to ascertain the impact of keto diets on individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Describing the study, the article states, “The four month long study was conducted on fifteen male and female patients with mild to moderate levels of Alzheimer’s. Each of them was given a ketogenic diet of 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% carbohydrate along with a daily dose of MCT oil, vitamin D, multivitamin, phosphorus, and calcium supplements.”

The article also mentions that ten out of the fifteen participating patients were able to complete the study safely and displayed no intolerance for the keto diet. Summarized below are some of the most striking findings of the study.

· Significantly better cognitive test results were obtained for nine out the ten patients to complete the study.

· An almost one point increase in the Mini-Mental State Examination or MMSE

· Complete loss of the cognitive test score improvements after the patients were moved back to their normal diets.

All ketogenic diets are designed to force the human body towards a specific metabolic state known as ketosis. At this state, the body starts burning fat for energy because of the absence of carbohydrates. As a result, a quick loss of body fat is experienced by the dieters. Ketones are produced during ketosis as a by product of fat burning, and provide a measure of the efficiency of the diet plan.

One of the most popular products from Just Fitter, ketone testing strips has been used by tens of thousands of Amazon shoppers to keep a track of the ketonic state of their body. This product is amongst the top bestsellers in its category, and has been reviewed by close to fifteen hundred Amazon shoppers.
