deltaH supports longevity by promoting strong metabolic and cognitive health.
Studies show that ketones may help decrease blood sugar levels and increase insulin sensitivity (1, 2, 3). When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, this could prevent serious illnesses such as type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease. These conditions are linked to poor metabolic health and are among the leading causes of death in the United States.
For cognitive health, ketones may reduce oxidative stress, decrease brain inflammation, and alter certain neurotransmitters involved in health and disease (4). These effects may help alleviate certain cognitive diseases.
For example, ketones may reduce epileptic seizure frequency by 40%–90% (5). Studies on ketones have also shown benefits for Alzheimer's disease patients (6, 7).
Ketones may also increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) (8). This protein helps grow neurons, promotes synaptic connections, and supports brain cell health. BDNF plays an important role in learning and long-term memory.
