Are Carbs Killing Your Brain?



The brain is the most fatty organ in the body (60% of the brain's tissue is fatty tissue). It insulates neurons and allows messages to travel throughout the brain and the body. A fat brain is a healthy brain. Listen to this talk with Dr. Mary Newport to understand the importance of having ketones fueling your brain to protect it from degenerative diseases and over-all brain health.

While your brain represents about 2-3% of your total body weight, 25% of the cholesterol in your body is found in your brain, where it plays important roles in membrane function, acts as an antioxidant, and serves as the raw material from which we are able to make things like progesterone, estrogen, cortisol, testosterone, and even vitamin D.



For the last 50 years, doctors have been telling us to lower our fat intake based on a flawed study (Ancel Keys). As a result, we've been focused on lean meats, and eating "prepared foods" where the fat content in the products have been replaced with sugar and salt to make it taste good.
AND NOW THE USA IS A COUNTRY OF FAT PEOPLE WITH BRAIN PROBLEMS!!
What have we learned?
Our food pyramid has been UPSIDE DOWN & KETONES should be an energy source for our bodies!!


FAT LOSS
Keto//OS targets and burns body fat with every serving by positioning your body to follow proven, accepted, and universal fat-loss formula.
Make better food choices: Ketones naturally suppresses your appetite allowing you to make better choices and eat less frequently.
Minimize sugar intake: Ketones don't require insulin to deliver energy to your cells the way glucose does, so blood sugar levels are regulated and minimized which helps eliminate carb cravings and crashes.
Protect and preserve muscle: Ketones are extremely anti-catabolic (they are protein / muscle sparing) and will preserve and protect your lean tissue during periods of caloric restriction. The more muscle you preserve, the more fat you burn.
Move more: Ketones offer insulin free energy that maximizes your mindset and mental focus while motivating you to move more, do more, and be more.


FITNESS
Keto//OS creates a dual fuel energy system that allows ketones and glucose to co-exist inside the body.
Energy output: Ketones create more ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) per unit of oxygen than glucose making workouts more efficient. ​
Inflammation: Ketones have incredible anti-inflammatory properties which aid in and improve post-workout recover.
Endurance: The Dual Fuel Operating System (Ketones and Glucose) delays the release of glycogen stores in the muscles. This allows for greater, longer, and stronger performance.


FUNCTION
Keto//OS provides a cleaner, quicker energy pathway than glucose while providing very important signaling molecules to the body.​
Signaling: Ketones are known to elicit many healthy effects by mediating our body's own protective antioxidant defenses.
Protection: Ketones protect our cells from many types of age-related deficiencies and environmental damage.
Endurance: The exogenous ketones from Keto//OS can help maximize endogenous ketone production by the body, leading to improved bio-markers including blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure.

One year ago (June 2017) I was introduced to a drink that has changed our lives.  As all of you know eating ketogenic correctly is NOT easy.  Getting into and staying in ketosis is also not very easy.   That is until I found out about and began drinking pure therpeutic ketones.  FYI - I turned 50 in February of 2018!
