KETO//OS is a source of ketones. Ketones are an efficient energy for the brain. Scientific evidence does not suggest that therapeutic levels of ketosis are damaging to the brain over a long period of time. Conditions such as the ketogenic diet, which elevates blood ketone levels, confer many neuroprotective effects. (See article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18845187. It is likely the exogenous ketones that KETO//OS delivers would have similar effects. It may even prevent neurodegeneration, as impaired glucose metabolism often accompanies the development of dementia such as in Alzheimer’s disease. There is ongoing research on this topic. Prüvit is aggressively funding University Research on the use of exogenous ketones.
