Keto has been shown to help with weight loss, diabetes, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more.

Keto may enhance mental health and cognition

Keto may boost mood, memory, focus, and brain function by increasing ketones and lowering inflammation.

Keto can have side effects and risks, such as keto flu, nutrient deficiencies, and ketoacidosis. Keto should be done under medical supervision.
