Ketosis and Alzheimer’s

Livin’ La Vida LowCarb podcast is currently featuring lectures from the 2016 Metabolic Therapeutics Conference. Dr. Mary Newport gave a lecture on her personal experiences with ketones and Alzheimer’s disease that was fascinating.

Her research is a great illustration of a benefit of ketones unrelated to weight/fat loss. This lecture is not too dry or “science” like some of the others.  Her descriptions of the cognitive improvements her husband experienced were very interesting.
