BEN BIKMAN 6 | ON GLUCOSE BRAIN IS VULNERABLE…on KETONES NOT

http://www.DoctorsToTrust.com
presents episode 773 | Dr Ben Bikman
Dr David Jockers podcast

Dr Jockers:
-brain has 10k mitochondria per neuron
-2000 per muscle cell
-5000 per heart cell
Alzheimer’s Disease [type 3 diabetes] -also: inability of brain to have autophagy
& clean out neurons

Ben:
-check work of Amy Berger of
TuitNutrition.com
-in neurological disorders
[migraines; epilepsy] -brain glucose HYPOmetabolism
-brain needs LOTS OF ENERGY
-but, when insulin resistant…
-develops ENERGY GAP
[but brain is in sugar-burning mode]

Ben:
In most people, 100% of fuel for brain
MUST BE GLUCOSE…insulin says so
-alternative fuel not available
-but glucose can’t get in
brain glucose HYPOmetabolism
-detectable years before Alzheimer’s
If able to use KETONES
-no more seizures
-extreme REDUCTION in migraines
-IMMEDIATE cognitive improvement

Ben:
So, allow brain to be two-fuel system
-glucose & ketones
Ketones ONLY AVAILABLE when body
is in FAT-BURNING MODE
-ketones come from fat burning
-insulin MUST BE DOWN

Ben:
In our lab, we analyzed gene expression
of human brains
-those who had NO ALZHEIMER’S
-those who had it
“In Alzheimer’s brains, every gene which
was associated with glucose use:
significantly LOWER THAN NORMAL”
-glucose UPTAKE was down
-glucose catabolism was lower

Ben:
Genes involved in ketone uptake &
ketone burning were normal
IN THE ALZHEIMER’S BRAINS
-evidence that in Alzheimer’s
glucose metabolism is compromised
-but NOT KETONE metabolism
“I live ketogenic diet in order for
MY BRAIN TO WORK…
and to fight off Alzheimer’s Disease”
