New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Your Brain DOES NOT Need to Adapt to Ketosis?

so I want to talk about ketones in your brain your brain actually does not need to adapt to ketosis let’s say you have this idea that you want to start the ketogenic diet and you start getting brain fog and someone tells you well that’s because you’re in the transition phase and it takes a while to transition into full ketosis okay now that’s partially true but the brain is an exception and it doesn’t need to adapt anything it doesn’t need to create new machinery or new enzymes or anything it has the capacity to run on ketones immediately and your brain actually prefers ketones a certain portion of the brain will always run on glucose okay one third of the brain but two-thirds of the brain runs on ketones and what’s unique about the brain is that 23% of all the energy that you generate is used by the brain so why is this significant okay well here’s the thing when you start a ketogenic plan you want to feel better right you don’t want to have mental dullness you want to have high powered energy you want to have focus you want have a lot of energy but if you’re getting brain fog mental fatigue depression or any lowered emotional state realize that there’s just not enough ketones available as the fuel source it’s not that your brain needs to adapt and it takes time if the ketones are there it’ll suck it right up okay so ketones come from endogenous sources which means that your body can make them by lowering your carbohydrate okay so let me show you in this section right here what determines how many ketones are in the brain is your blood ketone level okay it needs to be high and what determines this is the amount of insulin it still needs to be normal but it needs to be on the low side and but glucose needs to be low okay so these two right here will determine how many ketones and it does take some time it could take three to five days for this to start to really develop and actually break down your fat more efficiently but the point is that the more ketones you have in the blood the brain will be able to have them available to start working and the brain does not have to gapped it doesn’t take time and the reason I’m telling you that is that you can very easily assist this process by either taking some ketones for a few days or MCT oil okay which will help you generate more ketones faster that way you can have brain energy right away and that would be the other source is exogenous outside the body you can get them as ketone salts or MCT oil things like that and as a side note an infant can absorb ketones 15 times faster than an adult and this is a survival mechanism because of this the the brain needs a lot of energy to work so to help the brain survive it has a mechanism to absorb both types of fuel and especially as that infants brain is developing it needs fuel as a priority now what’s interesting is that the part of the brain that uses ketones is a cerebral cortex a hypothalamus the pituitary and the pineal gland and this is why a lot of people start improving their cognitive function okay because of this right here if they have memory problems dementia or neuro degeneration or Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s or any type of damage with the brain they’re not going to be able to absorb glucose efficiently the cool thing is that ketones bypass the whole mechanism and drive fuel right into certain parts of the brain the hypothalamus the pituitary the pineal our endocrine glands okay and so ketones feed the endocrine system it’s very very important to restore endocrine hormone function through ketosis as well as the autonomic nervous system that is a combination between the sympathetic and the parasympathetic and that’s another reason why people that have problems with this system they’re too much in like stress mode like they’re in flight or fight or they can’t sleep when they go get into ketosis they do better in fact a tremendous amount of ketones go to the pituitary and pineal okay Peniel helps you sleep so in summary if you wanted to prevent the brain fog or the Aikido fatigue NCT oil is gonna be a really good idea also if you personally or know of someone who has Alzheimer’s or any type of memory problems MCT oil and also exogenously tones as a way to supplement and speed up the results of getting more ketones into that brain thanks for watching so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to subscribed

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about why the brain does not need to adapt to ketosis. The brain has the capacity to run on ketones immediately and it also prefers ketones as its fuel source. A certain portion (1/3) of the brain will always run on glucose but 2/3 of the brain runs on ketones. 23% of all the energy that is generated is used by the brain.
Sources of Ketones
1. Endogenous – means the body can make them by lowering the carbohydrate.
2. Exogenous – ketones salt, MCT oil

The blood ketone levels are what determines how many ketones are in the brain – insulin should be in the normal range and glucose level needs to be low.
Part of the Brain that uses Ketones
1. Cerebral Cortex
2. Hypothalamus
3. Pituitary Gland
4. Pineal Gland
