What are Ketogenic Bodies Part 2?
(this is a continuation of Part 1)
Ketogenic Bodies are naturally produced in our body via mitochondria. it is an alternative fuel source to sugar. Except for our endogenous Ketogenic Bodies produced in the liver, there are exogenous Ketogenic Bodies that are administered through a nutritional supplement.
Assists in Hunger Suppression
Ketogenic Bodies help people who work to lose weight by suppressing their hunger and cravings. It helps in reducing the weight gain by decreasing the overall food intake. It maintains the levels of ghrelin, blood glucose, and leptin that works to control cravings and hunger.
Improves Cognitive Functioning
When there are diminished levels of glucose, ketones provide around 70%of the energy to the brain. Ketogenic Bodies bodies stimulate the synthesis of phospholipids that enhances the neuronal myelination and growth process. It helps in improving the memory and focus of a person. It improves the overall cognitive performance and enhances the workflow throughout the day.
Exogenous Ketogenic Bodies possess anti-inflammatory properties that help in preventing any ongoing inflammation in the body. It effectively halts the actions of all the proteins that stimulate the inflammatory reactions.
Metabolizing the Excess Ketones
Another weight losing benefit provided by the ingestion of ketone supplements is that even excess intake of Ketogenic Bodies does not get accumulated as adipose tissues in the body but get excreted rapidly by the kidneys via urine.
Studies suggested that a proper Ketogenic Bodies diet along with the exogenous supplements can help the children who have seizures. Ketogenic Bodies possess anti-seizure properties that enhance the production of mitochondrial energy in the brain that helps in relieving the symptoms of epilepsy.
