Notes


- ketone bodies selectively inhibited bifidobacterial growth in a dose- and pH-dependent mechanism.
- the keto diet mediates the lack of intestinal pro-inflammatory Th17 induction by reducing colonization levels of Bifidobacterium adolescentis.
- Bifidobacterium levels decreased with increasing carbohydrate restriction, thus highlighting that carbohydrate restriction, rather than high-fat intake, is the main contributor to the keto diet’s impact on the gut microbiome. (1)

- Fungi in gut linked to higher Alzheimer's risk can be reduced through ketogenic diet (2)
- Good monounsaturated fat sources include: (3)
