Ketones heal the brain
BHB (a ketone type) promotes the repolarizing of neuronal membranes. This is just one of many mechanisms that reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Ketogenic diets are amazing for mental health
Optimized repolarization of neuronal membranes allows your brain cells to:
- accumulate nutrients
- reject harmful substances
- catalyze enzymatic reactions (does everything!)
- create electrical potential
- conduct nerve impulses
- remain sensitive to neurotransmitters and modulators
- Decreased hyperexcitability
You have to give your brain what it needs to work better if you want to treat mental illness and neurological disorders. Ketogenic diets are powerful mental health interventions.
