Can drinking ketones provide cognitive benefits in people with mild cognitive impairment?

Takeaway

  • Ketone supplementation (30 g/day) may help bypass the brain glucose deficit to improve cognitive function in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

Why this matters

    MCI is associated with impaired brain glucose uptake. Ketone supplementation provides an alternative energy source for the brain and could help improve cognition in people with MCI.
