Ketogenic diet as a mechanism for improving cognitive function and brain aging | Dale Bredesen

Parent Episode: Dr. Dale Bredesen on Preventing and Reversing Alzheimer's Disease

The typical Western diet, characterized by high intakes of processed foods, refined sugars, and saturated fats, raises blood glucose and insulin levels, promotes inflammation, and contributes to the phenomenon of "leaky gut" syndrome. A growing body of evidence, however, suggests that a ketogenic diet, which is low in carbohydrates and rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, contributes to overall health and may be beneficial in preventing many chronic diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. In this clip, Dr. Dale Bredesen discusses the potential brain-health benefits associated with a ketogenic diet.
