Reducing Anxiety!


With exogenous ketone supplementation! 

SNOOOPY
An article published on December 6, 2016 in Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience discusses the impact that ketone ester and BHB salts on blood glucose and BHB levels as well as performance on an elevated plus maze (EPM). What these researchers, including Dr. Csilla Ari and Dominic D’Agostino, concluded is astounding!

After 83 days chronic and 7 days sub-chronic exogenous ketone supplementation to a standard diet, the following results ensued!

  • less entries were made into closed arms on the maze
  • more entries were made into open arms on the maze
  • more distance was traveled in open arms on the maze

With these results, researchers concluded that exogenous ketone supplementation may represent a promising anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) strategy by helping induce nutritional ketosis. Take a moment to look through this incredible research article!
