Did you know 1 in 4 people suffer from migraines? If you're one of them, or you know of someone who does, then perhaps this may be of interest to you.
A study was recently published called, "Dietary Supplement With Ketones May Mitigate Migraine Attacks".
Here is just a snippet from the beginning. If you would like the full article, just comment below, and I'll send it to you.
"VANCOUVER, Canada — Preliminary evidence indicates that a daily dietary supplement providing ketones can reduce the frequency of migraine headaches with no adverse effects.
Increasing evidence suggests an energy deficit disorder exists in migraine, the researchers note. By supplying ketones as an alternative fuel to glucose, several deleterious components of the deficit may be avoided.
During a poster session here at the 18th Congress of the International Headache Society (IHC) 2017, doctoral candidate Elena Gross, MSc, University of Basel Children's Hospital, Switzerland, told attendees that although a strict ketogenic diet is known to be beneficial in migraine, it is very difficult to follow long term.
"So the idea was what if a lot of the benefits you get from a ketogenic diet are actually due to the presence of ketone bodies vs the absence of glucose?"
