Reducing Inflammation: Why the Ketogenic Diet and Exogenous Ketones Are Key
Published: 18 Feb 2020
Click the link below to see an article and a video by HVMN discussing why the ketogenic diet and exogenous ketones are key to reducing inflammation.
Is the ketogenic diet as a whole responsible for the reduction of inflammation? Or is it the specific ketone body BHB (beta hydroxybutyrate) that has the most impact? This is a major question that Brianna (one of the authors) brings up and explores in this article.
The video covers and discusses the following Papers:
“Comparison of Low Fat and Low Carbohydrate Diets on Circulating Fatty Acid Composition and Markers of Inflammation”
“The Ketone Metabolite BHB Blocks NLRP3 Inflammasome-Mediated Inflammatory Disease”
“The Activation of Retinal HCA2 Receptors by Systemic BHB Inhibits Diabetic Retina Damage Through Reduction of Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and the NLRP3 Inflammasome”
