Keto Diet Improves Brain Function.

26 people with Alzheimer’s disease participated in a clinical trial to evaluate the effects of diet on mental function.  Each patient followed a keto diet for 12 weeks (58% fat, 29% protein, 6% carbs) and a standard low fat diet (11% fat, 19% protein, 62% carbs) for 12 weeks, with a 10 week washout period between diets.

Results: Cognition: slight improvement on keto diet, slight decline on standard diet.

Daily function: Slight improvement on keto diet, 5% decline on standard diet.

Quality of life: 10% improvement on keto diet, slight decline on standard diet.

While on the keto diet, patients lost weight and reduced their HbA1c levels with no adverse effects experienced.
