Impaired metabolic function is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s and the result is a diminished ability to metabolize glucose and a worsening of conditions when the brain continues to do so.
Research has shown that the metabolically damaged brain can still utilize ketones for energy offering ketosis and ketones up as a therapeutic option for minimizing the energy deficit in the Alzheimer’s brain as well as provide many additional downstream benefits.
While there is a lot to figure out still, one thing is certain: ketones should be considered as a therapeutic option for dementia and Alzheimer’s.
