Absent-Minded? How to Stop It!
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Absent-Minded? How to Stop It!?
Do you ever feel absent-minded let me show
you how to stop it what is being absent-minded it’s basically a lapse of
awareness you’re forgetful easily distracted and all of this occurs
because your neurons your brain cells are tired and they’re basically starving
for energy you see the neurons are usually dependent on glucose or lactate
okay these are fuel sources but what happens is when you consume those fuels
they have a bit of a side effect because cognitive dysfunction as well as
absent-minded good thing that your body can use another type of fuel and that
fuel is called what was that umm let me think
oh that’s right ketones that’s right ketones suppress glucose consumption or
utilization let me explain if there is ketones and glucose in your blood okay
so here’s your blood vessel you have ketones and glucose glucose will not be
utilized by your brain because ketones prevent glucose from being utilized if
there’s ketones in your blood now in the rest of the body it’s the exact opposite
if you’re trying to get into ketosis or you’re taking ketones then you eat some
carbohydrate and you have glucose in your blood ketones will be suppressed
and your body will be utilizing the glucose but if there’s ketones and
glucose in their blood the body will prefer ketones but what happens when you
have cognitive impairments and you become absent-minded the actual nerve
cells whether it’s from any gene or chronic consumption of glucose you start
damaging neurons in certain parts of the brain the prefrontal cortex hippocampus
then you start to what was I just thinking become absent-minded the simple
solution to even bypass a damaged nerve cell is to start to increase your
ketones the ketones will do a lot of things
first of all they’re going to feed the neuron what
needs to function ketones also affect the potassium channels and those
channels are intimately involved in the communication process between neurons
now we have way more communication and by the way don’t forget to consume a lot
of potassium from your foods or supplements to make sure you have enough
raw material also the mitochondria which is the energy factory of the cell when
it burns ketones there’ll be less waste product when the body burns glucose
there’s a lot of garbage as residue but not with ketones it’s more efficient
you’ll be able to extract more energy from the calories that you’re consuming
how do you generate ketones well it’s very simple
you just lower your carbohydrates below 50 for a lot of people you need to go
down to 20 or even less if you’re older and you have a slow metabolism the other
thing that’s really really important you want to increase the time of fasting
okay so in a minute fasting is very very important to repair a damaged brain not
only will you generate way more ketones you will also kick in certain genes that
stimulate the growth of neurons we get what’s called autophagy autophagy is
a state where you’re you’re cleaning up all the damaged proteins in the brain
and the rest of the body so you’re you’re making the body really clean so
it can function very very well so fasting is very very important and you
wouldn’t want to go at least eighteen hours of fasting with a six hour eating
window combined with lower carbs to start to turn this thing around
but because ketones do suppress glucose consumption you may want to also take
ketones now exogenous ketones are a bit expensive and less expensive a very
efficient way to do it is just by adding MCT oil now some people actually use MCT
oil to supply like half of the dietary fats you can do that but if you’re gonna
start MCT oil always go into it slowly because too much too fast can cause
diarrhea or cramping so you start with one teaspoon and then one
tablespoon and then more and more more gradually over that weeks but if you’re
absent-minded or you have cognitive issues you definitely need to do both of
these together and if you want to you know speed things up you can actually
add that and even spread it through the day so you’re constantly having ketones
in your blood and so your brain will just pull it right in despite how much
glucose you have in your blood now there’s definitely some other things
that you need to do to get rid of this symptom and that’s what it is it’s a
symptom it’s not a disease it’s a symptom of a damaged nerve self and the
one is sleep okay if you are sleep deprived I guarantee you will be
absent-minded because the effects that this has on cortisol and stress and
blood sugars it literally will destroy your brain also number two stop thinking
so much it’s very common nowadays with the
amount of stress that people go through to be in a state of constant analysis
okay or thinking or solving problems 24/7 even when they’re sleeping even
when they’re exercising even when they’re going for a walk in nature
they’re not even kind of looking out in nature they’re so stuck in their head
analyzing everything to death it’s very vital to take at least a small portion
of the day one hour a day okay and just stop thinking go out there in nature and
just start getting your attention going out and it’s hard though because your
attention is so stuck in this problem and that problem this problem it’s hard
to undo it but you need to do it to kind of reset and get your focus back and
then the microbiome and you’ve got there’s a huge connection between the
state of microbes in your gut and your cognitive function because these
microbes actually make amino acids that then turn into neurotransmitters and so
there’s this whole freeway channel between your gut and your brain back and
forth definitely make mental now that if your gut is not
work on that take a probiotic get your diet straightened out and you’ll find
that your cognitive function will be a much much better there’s quite a few
connections between even Alzheimer’s and gut health so I’ll put some links down
below alright guys so that’s a wrap on this video there’s another one on brain
physiology that’s actually quite interesting I think you’ll like that
one I put it right here

In this video, we’re going to talk about absent-mindedness and how to improve absent-mindedness.
Absent-mindedness is basically a lack of awareness. If you’re absent-minded, you might be forgetful and easily distracted. It could be happening because your brain cells are tired and starving for energy.
Your neurons are normally dependent on glucose or lactate for fuel. But, when you consume those fuels, they have a side-effect. They can potentially cause cognitive dysfunction and absent-mindedness.
But, your body can use another type of fuel called ketones. Ketones suppress glucose utilization. If there are ketones and glucose in your blood, your brain will use ketones instead of glucose.
A simple solution to bypass a damaged nerve cell is to start increasing ketones. Ketones can feed the neurons what they need to function. They also affect the potassium channels, which can increase the communication between neurons.
You can generate ketones by lowering your carbohydrates below 50g. You also may need to increase the time you fast. You would want to do at least 18 hours of fasting with a 6-hour eating window. You may also want to add exogenous ketones. A great form of exogenous ketones is MCT oil.
How to overcome absent-mindedness:
2. Stop thinking so much
3. Support your gut microbiome
