Does Keto Cause Anti Aging?
What does anti aging mean? That you will stay 25 years old forever? Of course not.
You are going to age one way or the other. But what about slowing down the aging process at the cellular level.
In real life, it means your health will be extended much further into older age. Being alive is different than LIVING.
Just slogging along while you feel terrible is not really a good way to go about life.
Anti Aging means to slow the aging process. The more your cells age, the less they work well.
Keto has anti aging properties on several layers.
Well, everyone is different, but in general, the keto diet can create an environment that causes the body to create anti aging chemicals.
Younger and skinny? That’s a great combination.
According to studies, there is a natural body chemical called B-hydroxybutyrate. It protects your cells from genetic damage and internal stress.
This happens because it blocks an enzyme. This enzyme prevents certain good genes from becoming active. We want these good genes to become active. When these helpful genes become active, they protect the cells from aging.
Yes, I’m simplifying it a lot, but really that’s what you need to know.
Plus the fact that going keto may help prevent a bunch of diseases, including heart and brain problems, like dementia.
It’s a Serious Study
The author of the study, Dr Katerina Akassoglou works at the Gladstone Institute for Virology and Immunology in San Francisco.
In the study was the question: “Anti Aging From Keto? Is it possible?”
She said: ‘The findings could be relevant for a wide range of neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, autism and traumatic brain injury.’
‘[These] diseases afflict millions and there are few treatment options.'
I’m not a doctor and I don’t make claims. These are from the Doctor who did the study.
We know from lots of research, that when we lower our carbs, and only include ‘healthy’ carbs, our body goes through a big shift in how it burns and stores fat.
That process forces the body to secrete B-hydroxybutyrate. Then good things start happening, in addition to losing weight.
There’s Another Way To Activate It
Fasting also releases this same chemical, which researchers have known for years.
As you may know, intermittent fasting is one of the things we recommend a lot. I have it built into my daily routine. I don’t eat until lunch time every day. So I have a built-in fast from dinner the night before until lunch, which I usually eat between noon and 1pm.
It’s simple, helps me feel better, and keeps the weight steady. It is also anti aging.
Anti aging from keto? Apparently yes.
If the keto diet is helping prevent degenerative diseases, it is helping people live happier. Living a long time but being diseased and miserable is not a great bargain.
Living long and healthy? That’s a deal I’m interested in.
