Ep70: Is Ketosis Good for Brain Development & Long-Term Health? • Amber O'Hearn
By Gary Kirwan
Data-scientist and carnivore diet proponent, Amber O’Hearn, is today’s guest interview. Amber is back with us today to share some more valuable information about how ketosis and micronutrients affect brain health. She helps to explain how ketosis differs in humans to other animals and the evolutionary perspective of why our brains thrive on ketones. We then find out about suckling ketosis and the difference in transition time to ketosis between adults and children. We also go into discussing essential micronutrients for brain growth, development and maintenance, RDAs and how bioavailability of nutrients depends on diet, organ meats as well as importance of dietary quality vs nutrient density.
