2:11 How to supply the brain with ketones
There are many things that can cause a migraine headache. But, ketones can potentially help your brain in many ways.
A study in 1930 demonstrated that 28% of migraine sufferers reported having no migraines after being on keto. 25% of migraine sufferers reported less frequent migraines after being on keto.
Recent evidence suggests that migraines may stem from cerebral energy deficiency. So, part of the brain may not be getting energy. This could also relate to insulin resistance, which could be one reason why ketones may be effective. Ketones actually provide an alternative fuel to the brain.
The other factor that may contribute to a migraine is too much oxidative stress compared to how much antioxidant capacity you have. Ketones can act as an antioxidant. Ketones may not only protect you from free-radical damage, but they may also act as an anti-inflammatory. Your brain loves ketones and actually prefers ketones over glucose.
Potential benefits of ketones for the brain:
1. It can help improve your mood
2. It can help improve your cognitive function (memory, focus, and concentration)
3. It may help improve epilepsy
4. It could help increase mitochondria function
5. It can help reduce oxidative stress
If you have migraines, you may want to get on the ketogenic diet. It may also be beneficial to do MCT oil and even exogenous ketones to help boost your ketones even more.
How to help supply the brain with ketones:
1. Do healthy keto
2. Eliminate snacks (do intermittent fasting)
