Ketogenic Diet May Boost Memory and Prolong Lifespan
Two new independent studies conducted in mice suggest that ketogenic diet, also known as “keto diet”, may improve the memory of old subjects and prolong lifespan.
One study was led by Drs. Eric Verdin and John Newman from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, USA. Another study was led by Dr. John Ramsey from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
Both studies checked the effects of four diet types such as ketogenic, low carbohydrate, high fat, and control diet in mice. A team of scientists from the Buck Institute found that a keto diet prevent obesity, reduced mid-life mortality, and prevented memory loss in mice.
Dr. John Ramsey says: “We expected some differences [in mice fed the keto diet], but I was impressed by the magnitude we observed – a 13% increase in median life span for the mice on a high-fat versus high-carb diet. In humans, that would be 7 to 10 years. But equally important, those mice retained quality of health in later life.”
