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)

Swollen face and puffy eyes? With the right information, this situation can be very easy to fix.

Timestamps
0:00 Swollen face and puffy eyes
0:18 What causes a swollen face and puffy eyes?
2:35 What you could do

Today we’re going to talk about what’s really behind a swollen face and puffy eyes. This situation can be so easy to fix as long as you understand one simple concept.

There are two sources of fuel in the body. There’s glucose and fat/ketones. Ketones are made from fat. Glucose is stored as glycogen. Fat is stored as adipose tissue.

Storing glucose as glycogen is extremely limited. You can only store a small amount of it. But fat has no limit. Glucose is limited because it’s very hydrated. For your body to store glucose as glycogen, it requires a lot of water, and there’s not enough space to store that much hydrated material.

The body will handle this situation by taking the excess glucose from the diet and efficiently converting it into fat. If you’re consuming excess glucose in the diet, you’re going to have more fat and more fluid. This can show up in the face as a swollen face, and especially around the eyes as puffy eyes.

I believe the best way to handle this situation is to eliminate the excess glucose in the diet. The body is designed to have a very tiny amount of sugar, and that sugar can be easily created from non-carbohydrate sources. I do not believe a person needs to consume any sugar to have normal blood sugar levels.

Does fasting increase adrenaline and cause stress? Here’s what you need to know.

Timestamps
0:00 Does fasting increase adrenaline?
0:15 Fasting and adrenaline
1:15 Fasting and cortisol

Does fasting increase adrenaline, causing stress? Let’s talk about that. No, I don’t believe fasting causes stress.

It’s true that the pre-adrenaline hormone or neurotransmitter noradrenaline increases by about 48%. But, your resting metabolic rate also goes up. So, fasting actually helps your metabolism.

During fasting, you’re in ketosis. You’re living on fatty acids and ketones. In order to mobilize this fat, you have to stimulate the fat-burning hormones and adrenaline. Adrenaline is there to mobilize the fat.

Short-term fasting can elevate cortisol, which is a stress hormone. But, this is a normal process. Cortisol helps mobilize stored sugar. It’s actually involved in preventing hypoglycemia. But, long-term fasting decreases cortisol.

Fasting on a regular basis may actually make people feel more calm, relaxed, and stress-free.

4:01 Keto recipe channel promo

In this video, we’re going to talk about a topic that comes up often. It has to do with what puts you into ketosis. Many people think it takes consuming more fat to put your body into the state of ketosis.

The truth is, you don’t necessarily need to consume more fat. Instead, you need to lower your carbohydrates. Carbs affect insulin, and insulin blocks ketosis. The key is to lower your carbs.

Ketosis is also not a high-protein diet. You want to consume only a moderate amount of protein. 3-8 oz of protein is fine. You also don’t want to consume lean protein—low-fat protein can exacerbate insulin spikes. Always consume full-fat foods.

Why do you need dietary fat on ketosis?
1. Fat helps you fast longer (lowers hunger and cravings)
2. Fat supplies you with nutrients (essential fats and fat-soluble vitamins)
3. Fat stimulates bile
4. Fat triggers healthy hormones
5. Fat supplies your body with healthy tissue
6. Fat slows the absorption of protein
7. Fat helps you maintain your weight

2:27 What you could do

In this video, I want to talk about why it may be beneficial to do fasting before, during, and after surgery. Fasting creates some interesting effects to help speed up the healing process. 

How fasting can help speed up the healing process:

1. There is a spike in ketones
Ketones are anti-inflammatory. Surgery, trauma, or injury all cause pain and inflammation. Fasting may help decrease the pain as well. 

2. It stimulates autophagy 
This is a condition where you recycle damaged proteins. 

3. It can increase human growth hormone
This has everything to do with growing muscle and proteins. 

Carbohydrates create more inflammation and blood sugar issues. Carbo-loading after an operation could just create more inflammation. 

If you’re going to have surgery, and you have the ability to prepare for the surgery, it may be best to start intermittent fasting 2 weeks before the surgery. This way, you’re fully adapted to fat-burning, and you can go into the surgery without any problems with the blood sugars. Right after the surgery, you may want to do a more prolonged fast (at least 48 hours). 

During your fast, it may be best to take certain nutrients, such as:
• Sea salt
• Electrolytes
• B-vitamins 
• Amino acids 
• Vitamin D

Glucagon opposes insulin. Find out more about this interesting fat-burning hormone.

0:00 Glucagon 
0:13 What is glucagon? 
0:23 Glucagon and ketosis
1:11 Insulin vs. glucagon 
3:37 What will inhibit glucagon? 

I’ve created a lot of videos on insulin, blood sugar, and diabetes. But, there is another hormone that works with insulin that I haven’t talked much about. It’s called glucagon. 

Glucagon is a hormone that opposes insulin. Glucagon turns the switch on for ketosis (the state of fat burning). Insulin turns the switch off. Insulin blocks ketosis. 

Glucagon releases stored sugar. Stored sugar is called glycogen. Glucagon will release glycogen into glucose and will turn fat into ketones. Insulin will store glucose as glycogen and as fat. 

Insulin lowers sugar in the blood, but glucagon raises it. Glucagon is a counter hormone to insulin. 

Let’s say you have too much insulin and it shoves your blood sugar way down, so you get hypoglycemia. Normally, glucagon is supposed to kick in and counter that. Glucagon is a fat-burning hormone that helps keep the blood sugar where it needs to be. 

Insulin is a dominating hormone. In the presence of insulin, glucagon will be lowered. Insulin knocks you out of ketosis, but glucagon actually puts you into ketosis. 

Insulin is triggered by carbohydrates, protein, and eating. Glucagon is triggered by protein, vigorous exercise, adrenaline, GIP, and fasting. 

High sugar in the diet and insulin will both inhibit glucagon.

This paper, entitled, “Diet modulates brain network stability, a biomarker of brain aging, in young adults,” makes two novel contributions to the field:

It establishes a new biomarker for brain aging called “network stability.”

It shows that ketone bodies themselves (obtained through diet or supplement) increase network stability and, thereby, protect against brain aging and the risk of developing diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.

(I) “Network stability,” a biomarker of brain age.

“Network stability” refers to the brain’s capacity to communicate among its regions. Greater network stability indicates that all the different regions within the brain are able well connected and can work together efficiently to sustain cognitive activity.

First, using two large brain scan (fMRI) datasets (n = 928), the researchers observed a strong correlation between network stability and chronological age.

Second, the researchers observed a strong correlation between network stability and cognitive test scores, confirming that their biomarker of brain aging (network stability) was clinically relevant.

Third, they observed that network destabilization (brain aging) begins to accelerate at age 47 and reaches a rate of maximal decline by age 60.

Simply put, brain aging sets in decades before symptoms begin to develop. The earlier one intervenes to protect their brain, the better.

(II) Ketones increase network stability.

To examine the possible impact of ketones on network stability/brain aging, coming either from a high-fat, low-carb diet or a ketone ester supplement, the researchers performed two experiments.

In experiment #1, twelve healthy participants (average age = 28 years) underwent brain scans to measure network stability on three separate occasions: after an overnight fast, after eating a standard diet, after eating a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet. As compared to the overnight fast control, the standard diet decreased network stability, whereas the ketogenic diet increased network stability. This suggests that high-carbohydrate standard Westernized diets accelerate brain aging, whereas ketogenic diets protect against brain aging.

As part of experiment #1, the researchers also measured overall brain activity in participants on the standard and ketogenic diets. They found that, as compared to standard diets, ketogenic diets cause an increase in healthy brain activity both at rest and during cognitive tasks. This finding further supports the notion that ketogenic diets promote superior brain function.

Experiment #2 was conducted to isolate the effects of glucose versus ketones as fuels on network stability. In this experiment, thirty healthy participants (average age = 29 years) underwent brain scans to measure network stability after drinking either a glucose drink or an isocaloric ketone drink. Again, the data were clear: glucose decreases network stability and ketones increase network stability, suggesting that too much sugar accelerates brain aging, whereas ketones may protect against brain aging.

Key Points

Brain network stability is a novel biomarker for brain aging.

Network stability begins decreases decades before the symptoms of cognitive decline emerge. Destabilization begins to accelerate at age 47 and peaks by at 60.

Ketogenic diets and ketones increase network stability, whereas standard Western diets and glucose decrease network stability.

Ketogenic diets and ketones may protect against brain aging.

Why Use MCT Oil in Your Coffee?

Why Use MCT Oil in Your Coffee?

Why Use MCT Oil in Your Coffee?

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Why Use MCT Oil in Your Coffee??

so I had a question from someone that
wanted to know why would you use MCT oil in your coffee well let’s talk about
that there is something called bulletproof coffee where you’re
combining one cup of coffee could be between eight and twelve ounces with one
to two tablespoons of butter and one to two tablespoons of MCT oil then you
would blend it up and drink it and there’s many benefits to doing this
especially when you start out doing keto especially intermittent fasting because
it allows you to fast longer when we talk about MCT oil we’re talking about
medium chain triglycerides these are special fats usually made from coconut
oil that turn into ketones pretty fast so you’re able to generate ketones as
fuel without really changing your diet and a lot of times people add turmeric
or cinnamon or unflavored chocolate powder or even sea salt to spike it
sometimes even chili powder as well that’ll actually give it a kick but
let’s talk about the benefits of doing this number one you’re gonna have
physical energy why because ketones are their preferred fuel of the brain in the
heart so you’re gonna have more energy right away and especially if you’re
working out it’s gonna help you get more endurance all right next one is mental
clarity if there’s any type of problem with your focus or memory what that
means is that your neurons are starving of glucose if you give it another fuel
source ketones it will prefer that it will like
it and your memory and your clarity in your focus will improve and then the
other thing is reduce appetite so if you want to fast longer and not be hungry
MCT oil is one option there now also ketones give you more oxygen less co2 so
compared to glucose it’s just way better and also I already mentioned this will
increase your time of fasting so it’s really important especially in the
beginning of your program to do this so you can fast longer because fasting is
going to be so important in anything that can speed that up is going to be
very beneficial also it’s going to help in the
transitional phase so when you’re coming off carbs and you’re transitioning to
burning fat it’s helpful to jumpstart the system to get some ketones in your
body right away now there’s a couple points I want to mention about MCT oil
and I do have my own brand MCT oil and I want to just give you some insights
about this pretty much all of the MCT oil out there gets their product from
the same source and what you should know is that we don’t grow coconuts in the US
all MCT oil comes from non-US sources so when someone says it’s made in the US well
it’s just packaged in the US it’s grown in other countries my product is from
Indonesia but just realize that this right here is kind of a marketing gimmick
they don’t manufacture the coconuts in the US that is done overseas and then
they export it now the other thing about MCT oil is I really think it’s just way
way overpriced this is a 16 ounce bottle if you compare
this with other brands out there they’re charging about twenty five thirty five
forty five dollars for a 16 ounce bottle that is just way too expensive
what I charge for this is $12.95 and it’s pretty much the same product as you
see pretty much everywhere and if you start on keto or doing intermittent
fasting and you want to try this I put a link down below check it out I think it
could help you

0:48 Other bulletproof coffee ingredients 
1:00 MCT oil benefits
2:25 Important notes on MCT oil 
Let’s talk about why some people enjoy having MCT oil in their coffee. 

You may have heard of something called bulletproof coffee. Bulletproof coffee is one 8oz-12oz cup of coffee mixed with 1-2 tbsp of butter and 1-2 tbsp of MCT oil. 

There can be a lot of benefits of consuming this, especially when you’re first starting out on keto and intermittent fasting because it may help you fast for longer. 

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. These are special fats usually made from coconut oil that turns into ketones pretty fast. This helps you potentially generate ketones as fuel without really changing your diet. 

Sometimes, when making bulletproof coffee, people also add ingredients such as:
• Turmeric 
• Cinnamon 
• Unflavored chocolate powder 
• Sea salt
• Chili powder 

Benefits of MCT oil in coffee:

1. More physical energy 
2. Increased mental clarity 
3. Reduced appetite 
4. More oxygen
5. Increased fasting 
6. Helps with the transition to burning fat 

Pretty much all MCT oil companies get their products from the same source. The United States doesn’t grow coconuts, so MCT oil comes from non-US sources. I have an MCT oil product that is from Indonesia. 

I believe that typically MCT oil is overpriced. Many brands sell MCT oil for $25 to $45 for one 16oz bottle. I sell my MCT oil for $12.95. 

Many people enjoy bulletproof coffee, you may want to give it a try too!

Quick Way to Know if You Have Brain Damage

Quick Way to Know if You Have Brain Damage

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Quick Way to Know if You Have Brain Damage?

so I’m gonna show you a quick way to
determine if you have brain damage or not now this is what I don’t want you to
do I don’t want you to go up to your friends or your family members and tell
them hey I just saw a video of Dr. Berg’s and I think you have brain damage okay
don’t do that this is for you and not for them what you have to realize is
pretty much everyone acquires some degree of damage in their brain as they
age and that has to do with a lack of fuel in your neurons in one study it was
shown that an average person loses about 30 percent of their brain cells as they
get older into their 80s and even 90s and so that’s what I’m talking about
what I’m talking about brain damage so it’s not just dementia it could happen
very gradually like you’re looking for words and you’re trying to remember
where you put your keys that type of thing that is simply a situation where
your neurons are starving of fuel and the symptoms would be loss of memory
loss of clarity loss of focus and attention and that comes from doing a
high carbohydrate diet because over time your body is going to resist the
carbohydrates it’s going to create insulin resistance and now the glucose
can’t go into the brain cells and they starve the good thing about this is that
neurons actually prefer a different type of fuel not glucose but ketones in fact
if given the choice between glucose and ketones the brain will always choose
ketones as their preferred fuel so if your neurons are starving for a glucose
just feed them ketones so now here is the experiment I would like you to do
simply get on the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting I put a link down
below and within one to two weeks notice your cognitive improvements are you
sharper are you more focused is memory better and what about you mood
has it gone up if so then we know there’s some level of damage in your
brain or you can try another experiment you can take MCT oil when you take this
oil medium chain triglycerides comes from coconuts what’s gonna happen is
you’re gonna make ketones directly without even going on a ketogenic diet
and your brain will absorb those ketones and if there is damage within the brain
your cognitive function will start to improve you’ll be sharper better focus
more attention better memory and even a better mood so if there’s improvement in
either one of these then we know there’s been some damage going on MCT oil
basically gives you instant fuel that bypasses the damage that the
carbohydrate diet created now one thing that a lot of people realize when they
start a ketogenic diet and when they start intermittent fasting is they
start feeling better okay with more energy and their cognitive function
starts to really improve and definitely their mood increases so obviously they
stay on the diet for a long period of time now the cool thing about being on
this program is it can even overtime improve the damage of your brain rather
than getting a cat scan or MRI of your brain just simply change the fuel source
and then evaluate it decide if it’s something that you want to do long term
alright thanks for watching and I put the link down below of how to do the
keto diet as well as intermittent fasting the correct way thanks for watching with
another amazing recipe no brains no sugar
totally keto there’s no suffering in Keto absolutely
not Karen and it’s an immune system builder absolutely you have to check this out I
think you should hurry up watch the recipe and make it yourself it’s just so
easy to be keto but is it simple it’s super simple we
hope you enjoy making it as much as we are enjoying eating it

3:12 How to slow down and improve brain damage

In this video, I want to give you a quick way to know if you have brain damage. The truth is, everyone acquires some degree of damage in their brain as they age. This has to do with a lack of fuel in your neurons.

In one study, it was shown that the average person loses about 30% of their brain cells as they reach old age. This happens very gradually over time. The early signs of dementia can come on slowly—you might start forgetting where you put your keys or forget someone’s name.

When your neurons are starving of fuel, you will notice:
• Loss of memory
• Lack of clarity
• Loss of focus and poor attention span

This all comes from consuming a high carbohydrate diet. Over time, carbs cause insulin resistance, and glucose cannot supply the brain cells with energy.

Neurons actually prefer a different type of fuel: ketones. If given a choice between glucose and ketones, your neurons will choose ketones every time.

There are two simple experiments you can do to find out if you have brain damage:

1. Go on a healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting plan, which promotes the creation of ketones.

2. Use MCT oil – this instantly creates ketones.

After 1-2 weeks, take note of your cognitive improvements. If there are significant improvements, this could be a sign of damage due to low nutrients in your brain. In this case, it’s important to stay on a keto and intermittent fasting plan. It may even help reverse damage done to the brain.
