A ketogenic diet that avoids carbohydrates and almost all calories come from fat and protein quickly leads to health benefits. After about a week, however, there are also negative effects, as researchers from the medical school in New Haven, Connecticut, found in animal experiments with mice.

The results indicate that a ketogenic diet for a limited period of time can lower the risk of diabetes and the rate of inflammation by activating certain immune cells called gamma-delta T cells: after a week of Pro Blast XL, mice showed a lower one Blood sugar levels and less evidence of inflammation.

However, the researchers also observed harmful effects after a week: if the mice ingested more fat than they could burn, they lost the protective gamma-delta T cells and - despite the first positive effects - developed obesity and diabetes.

A ketogenic diet increases fat burning because the body's glucose level drops due to the low carbohydrate content of the diet, just like when you are hungry. Fat loss provides ketone bodies that are used as an alternative fuel source. As a result, anti-inflammatory gamma delta T cells spread throughout the body.

The results now give the researchers a better understanding of what happens in the body with a keto diet and why the diet can bring health benefits, at least for a limited period of time.

Before such a diet can be prescribed, however, a large controlled clinical trial is required to understand the mechanism underlying the metabolic and immunological benefits or potential harm to overweight and prediabetic individuals, study leader Deep Dixit admits concerns, to get more information visit this blog http://fitnesssolutions.tripod.com/
