Ketogenic diet boosts brain’s natural calm to combat epilepsy

Ketogenic diet boosts brain’s natural calm to combat epilepsy

A recent Cell Discovery study investigates whether the ketogenic diet (KD) could alleviate epilepsy. Background The ketogenic diet (KD) is a high-fat, very low carbohydrate, and adequate protein regimen. In this diet, cell energy is derived from fatty acid and amino acid oxidation, which generates ketone bodies, such as acetoacetate (AcAc) and β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). Additional studies are […]
