Did you know the ketogenic diet has been around for 100 years? (1) That’s right. Keto has actually been around since before you were born, only recently making its way into modern health trends.
If the keto diet has been around for that long, what makes it so special? Let’s find out! Here are the top 7 benefits of adding Keto Zone products to your lifestyle.
1. Aids Weight Loss
Studies continue to show that the keto diet offers huge relief for those struggling with weight loss. (2) Because of its concentration on high-fat and low-carb foods, ketosis can take place, a metabolic state in which your body burns fat for fuel.
Sounds like a dream come true!
Along with its fat-burning properties, keto’s inclusion of high-fat foods makes you feel full for longer, decreasing your appetite and suppressing your urge to overindulge in calories– a win/win for anyone looking to shed some pounds. (3)
2. Curbs Cancer
Finding any sort of alleviation for cancer patients is huge, and believe it or not, keto has proven to make a positive impact.
Studies show that the ketogenic diet can curb colon tumor progression and cancer cachexia because of the diet’s metabolic changes to the body. (4)
3. Stimulates Mental Clarity
Who doesn’t love to save time? We all know how frustrating it is to spend 6 hours on a task that should only take you one.
And this is where keto comes in.
Recent findings show those who follow the keto regimen have improved motor skills, cognitive function, and even added relief to mental disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia. (8) Other studies also prove mood stabilization properties that ease symptoms of bipolar disorder. (9)
4. Helps Type 2 Diabetics Quality of Life
Diabetics have to watch their carb intake to monitor glucose levels. But on the keto diet, your body doesn’t use glucose for energy; it uses fats. Studies suggest keto specifically improves Type 2 diabetics’ quality of life by alleviating inflammatory responses and aiding the glucose process. (10)
For those with Type 2 diabetes, this can bring an extra sense of comfort to their lives, as it saves a headache of trouble, as well as extra money spent on insulin and other medical needs.
5. Improves Cholesterol
No one likes going to the doctor only to hear they have high cholesterol.
How can you improve it?
6. Includes Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Studies show that the keto diet is profoundly anti-inflammatory.
BHB, one of the ketones produced during ketosis, is thought to block one of the main signals for inflammation. (19, 20) This means that a keto lifestyle can influence inflammatory diseases like eczema, arthritis, and psoriasis for the better.
Take my story for example, I used keto to ease my psoriasis, and the effects were life-changing.
7. Allows Your Favorite Foods
Keto challenges the “fat makes you fat” stigma. By incorporating foods high in healthy fat, it lets you enjoy the foods you love to eat while simultaneously losing weight.
Cheese, butter, heavy cream, peanut butter, meat, and oils are all allowed on your shopping list, pointing you away from other conventional low-fat diets.
Keto offers more than just another diet to lose weight. From curbing cancer, helping diabetics, and improving cholesterol, to stimulating mental clarity and aiding inflammatory diseases, it’s definitely lived up to sticking around for 100 years.
