Ketogenic diets are all the rage there days.  It’s not just hype.


Nutritional ketosis brings you lower blood glucose and lower blood insulin levels, as well as weight loss.


These are just the side benefits!

The main benefit, in my opinion, is raising blood levels of Beta-hydroxybutyrate – one of the main ketones. BHB is a critical signaling molecule. It positively affects our genetic expression. It protects our DNA and reprograms our metabolism to mirror calorie restriction.  The impact upon the immune system, cancer fighting, metabolism, longevity, mitochondrial health, brain health and athletic performance are profound.
