Today, we’re going to talk about ammonia and ammonia toxicity in the brain.
When you’re fasting or doing the ketogenic diet, you’re generating a lot of ketones which are acidic. Ammonia is generated to counter some of the acidity of the ketones. This isn’t a bad thing.
If you consume a lot of protein, you may also smell ammonia, which is usually not a problem unless you have liver damage.
If you have liver damage or kidney damage, you may not break down ammonia fully to urea. This can cause it to build up and back up into the brain.
What is ammonia?
Ammonia is a by-product of protein.
An imbalance of your microbes can also generate excessive amounts of ammonia, which is one cause of ammonia in your brain.
Ammonia in the brain:
When ammonia elevates in the brain, it can be toxic to the neurons and affect your mental clarity, cognitive function, mood, and can even cause a coma.
Over-exercising or glyphosate from GMO products can also cause too much ammonia.
Natural remedies to lessen the amount of ammonia in your body:
3. Moderate protein
