The Keto Diet and Brain Health

The ketogenic diet has made its reputation as a diet that has a long-lasting positive impact on brain health. We’re talking…

  • Better memory
  • Improved spatial relationship
  • Better short-term recall
  • Better cognitive function

In fact, the ketogenic diet is an offshoot of the starvation diet that early 20th century Mayo Clinic doctors used to treat epilepsy in children. It gets its name from the fact that depleting your body of carbohydrates and forcing it to burn fat causes a chemical response in your body that mimics what happens during a water or starvation diet.

This section of our site offers scientific articles on how a low-carbohydrate diet that’s high in healthy fats impacts the human brain.
