Introduction: Why Prüvit
"Short Video to explain the ketosis and ketone process."
"Dr. Richard Veech discussing the research that is being done to support Ketone Supplementation for Concussions.”
"Most of the research included is from Dr. David Perlmutter from his books ‘Grain Brain’ and ‘Brain Maker’, as well as research from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino.
The short term effects of ketone production, through ketogenic diet or supplementation of exogenous ketones and medium chain triglycerides, have been shown to almost immediately enhance memory, clarity, attention, alertness and cognition. Countless tests have been done correlating heightened brain function to the use of fatty acids as the primary substrate for metabolism. These results prove ketones to be one of the most effective and side effect free ‘brain hacks’ today.”
"This video is discussing the amazing benefits of ketogenic diets in relation to weight loss and positive body composition changes. Some information was from Dr. David Perlmutter's NY Best Selling book ‘Grain Brain’, as well as Jeff Volek's book ‘The Art And Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance’.”
Harmful Effects of Sugar
"Let’s take a look at some statistics pointed out by Dr. Robert Lustig:
In the past 25 years the average American's weight has increased a pound per year resulting in a 25lb total. This coincides with adding 200-300 kcal/day to the average nutritional intake. On average, a diet that increased around 250kcal in the past 25 years would be made up of an increase of 210kcal from carbohydrates, and only 40kcal from fat, which is equal to 4 grams of fat and a whopping 52 grams of carbohydrates.”
"Non keto-athletes and serious exercisers often talk about how on a ketogenic diet we lack the pathways to gain muscle and improve performance. THIS IS NOT TRUE! And here is the scientific reason why!
Jeff Volek and Stephen Phinney, are leading researchers in the field of keto adapted athletic performance, they have debunked this myth completely, and documented some of their findings very well in their co-authored book ‘The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance’.”
"The reason coconut oil or MCT oil has this astonishing regenerative effect on the brain is due to the production of ketones through the breakdown of MCT's. So really it’s not MCT oil that is acting as a miracle drug, it’s just a method of letting your body use fatty acids as fuel, resulting in the production of ketone bodies, which can also be achieved through a low carb ‘ketogenic diet’.”
"Interview with Dr. Dominic D'Agostino ‘What are Exogenous Ketones vs Endogenous Ketones?’”
"Dr. D'Agostino is an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida College Of Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology where he develops and tests metabolic therapies, including alternative energy substrates and ketogenic agents for neurological disorders, cancer and wound healing. While studying the effects of gasses on the brains of Navy Seal divers, he developed an approach for metabolically starving cancer cells through diet and compressed oxygen, replacing chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation.”
