Insulin Resistance of the Brain: MUST WATCH!

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Insulin Resistance of the Brain: MUST WATCH!?

hey guys in this video we’re going to talk about something called insulin resistance of your brain okay now insulin resistance is a condition where you have the pancreas or other parts of the body producing too much insulin because it’s not connecting into the cells so we have a situation where we have insulin there but it’s not available so it creates all sorts of problems another name for insulin resistance would of the brain would be called peripheral insulin resistance now in the brain insulin controls your food intake your metabolism your setpoint and it’s also intimately involved with cognitive function and memory okay when there’s too much insulin or sugar in the brain you’re going to destruction of various parts of the brain you can have neuro degeneration which is breakdown inflammation of the hypothalamus destruction of the hippocampus which is the structure in the brain that acts as a relay switch into your database your file cabinet of memories so you’re going to get dementia and poor memory okay there’s even a new treatment called nasal insulin spray which fights forgetfulness okay so they’re basically bypassing insulin resistance spraying it right through the nasal passages right up into the brain it crosses the blood-brain barrier goes right in as a way of bypassing insulin resistance and it creates significant improvements in cognitive function which is fascinating the problem is you add more insulin it’s not getting rid of the cause of the problem it’s a temporary fix and it’s going to actually make things worse because what kraits insulin resistance is too much insulin okay you get a little relief but then you have a lot of side effects down the road so there’s a lot of brain problems with dysfunctional insulin but in order to develop some of these symptoms from insulin resistance it starts in the mitochondria mitochondrial dysfunction okay and one of the key nutrients that protects the mitochondria from becoming dysfunctional is vitamin b1 thiamine if you have enough b1 into the cells you’re gonna have a lot less symptom if any from high levels of insulin and high levels of sugar and it also protects the nerves too as in peripheral neuropathy of the fingertips and the toes now there’s even a condition called korsakoff’s syndrome which is a b1 deficiency a very severe b1 deficiency and take a wild guess what kind of symptoms that these people have memory problems apathy dementia so I believe that without this b1 you can’t protect the mitochondria and you can develop all sorts of dysfunctional cells that can affect all sorts of things memory nerve damage you name it now how do we become deficient in b1 carbohydrates okay high carbohydrates alcohol will deplete it liver damage chemotherapy now if you look up some of the studies on brain insulin resistance here’s one high-fat diet induces brain insulin resistance and cognitive impairment in mice now wow they’re saying high-fat diets cause insulin resistance wow that’s a ketogenic diet isn’t it well let’s go ahead and read a little further and find out what these mice really ate high fat diet forty percent of energy from fat okay with 42 grams of liquid sugar this is not the ketogenic diet okay it’s a high fat plus high sugar diet anytime you add sugar with fat or sugar with protein you dramatically increase insulin okay you worse an insulin you magnify it exaggerates the problem so unfortunately the media takes hold of this and now the next thing you see is ketogenic diet is dangerous for the body and creates diabetes and insulin resistance no it’s not the high fat it’s the high sugar and it’s the high sugar in combination with the high fat so if you’re doing a ketogenic diet and you’re doing it correctly there’s not going to be any damage in fact you can improve insulin in the brain dramatically how do you do it by doing keto and then mmm fasting with taking vitamin b1 but make sure it’s in the of a natural source a nutritional yeast that would be really important so if one of my relatives had dementia what I would do is I’d put him on the keto program I’d put him on instrumented fasting and I would put him on a very strong vitamin b1 in the form of a fat soluble version of B one it’s called been thought to mean let me spell this then vote to me this is a fat soluble b1 you can get it from the health food store and I would recommend taking this four times a day so you’re taking a lot of it but it’s going to help innervate the brain because it’s fat soluble it goes right through the layer of the fat cells and it’s great for peripheral neuropathy it’s also good for shingles so there you have it insulin resistance on your brain thanks for watching so I want to know what you’re interested in as far as video click the link down below and share some ideas I want to hear

Insulin Resistance of the Brain: MUST WATCH!

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

Do You Have a Video Idea:

Take Dr. Berg’s Free Keto Mini-Course: or go here:

Dr. Berg talks about insulin resistance of the brain, also called peripheral insulin resistance. Too much insulin or blood sugar (glucose) various parts of the brain becomes destroyed (hippocampus, hypothalamus, etc). There is a new treatment called nasal insulin spray which bypasses insulin resistance. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) protects the tissues against high sugar and insulin. A good fat soluble version of B1 is called benfotiamine. The first thing that happens in the chain reaction is damage of the mitochondria UNLESS you have enough B1 – which protects the mitochondria. The studies done on what causes insulin resistance says its a high fat diet, however, these studies are really high fat, high sugar diets – these are not a ketogenic diet, they are a high carb diet. There is also a condition called Korsakoff’s Syndrome, which causes memory loss, demensia and apathy all caused from a B1 deficiency. I recommend getting your B-vitamins from nutritional yeast. However, if there is damage in your tissues, add Benfotiamine as a stronger version to penetrate the blood brain barrier.
