How Keto Affects Your Brain

Nutritional ketosis – aka a ketogenic diet – has profound effects on your body’s metabolism but also on how your brain functions. In fact, ketosis can dramatically improve how your brain works – that may mean eliminating seizures, helping you think more clearly, or even reducing or eliminating symptoms of mental illness. In this video, experts in the field explain how this works and why it may matter for you or a loved one with mental illness.

This video was recorded at the first ever Metabolic Psychiatry retreat, hosted by Baszucki Group in May, 2022 in Santa Barbara. The conference brought together psychiatrists, neuroscientists, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to build community in the emerging field of Metabolic Psychiatry.

No surprise our brains are naturally able to handle energy efficiently in only increments spread out by large gaps of time.
