Modified Keto Diet Linked to Lower Risk of Mild Cognitive Impairment

A new study, conducted by researchers from the Wake Forest School of Medicine, in Winston-Salem, U. S., finds that a diet, called the modified Mediterranean-style ketogenic diet may prevent mild cognitive impairment, which often leads to the development of Alzheimer’s, by creating a more healthful balance of the gut microbiota.Modified Keto Diet Linked to Lower Risk of the Mild Cognitive Impairment

This type of diet includes very few carbohydrates that used as fuel by the human body, and when the body is short on carbs, it starts to break its fat reserves to produce ketones as an alternative source of energy.

Principal investigator Hariom Yadav, Ph.D., an assistant professor of molecular medicine at Wake Forest comments the results of the study: “Although we do not fully understand how these fungi contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, this is the first study of its kind to reveal their role in our mental health, which we hope will ignite thinking in the scientific community to develop a better understanding of them in relation to Alzheimer’s disease.”
