A recent study published in Nature, has demonstrated that a ketogenic diet (KD) enhanced neurovascular functions and increased beneficial gut microbiota in young healthy mice. This important research identified that the KD improved cerebral blood flow and P-glycoprotein transports across the blood brain barrier responsible for removing amyloid-beta.
The KD also increased the number beneficial gut microbiota and reduced that of pro-inflammatory ones.
In addition to these benefits the diet also reduced body weight and blood glucose whilst increasing circulatory ketones.

Marathons and prolonged exercise are normally accompanied by muscle and organ damage. The fatigue associated with this exercise sometimes results in an inability to regularly exercise. Researchers compared a keto diet to a normal higher carbohydrate diet which were assessed for the markers of damage over an 8 week period. The results of the research were that a keto diet has the potential to be used as a fatigue preventing and recovery promoting method for endurance athletes.
As the researchers studied the effect on mice they suggested that further research on humans was appropriate, but offered the hypothesis that it would be reproducible in humans.

Combining regular exercise and omega 3 supplementation reduces both body fat and improves cardiovascular and metabolic health. It is well known that regular exercise and consumption of omega 3 improves cardiovascular risk. Researchers have shown that combining exercise and increased consumption of omega 3 leads to greater improvements than either intervention on their own.
The study involved 75 individuals across 4 strands and resulted in the combined omega 3 and exercise group losing 1.5kg’s more weight than the exercise or omega 3 alone groups. Also the elasticity of the small arteries improvement was significant.

If you are thinking of exercising for health, combine it with omega 3 for a greater improvement.
If you are looking to improve your exercise capacity you may wish to consider a Keto diet, at least in the short term.
Study: An 8 week Ketoginic low carb, high fat diet enhances exhaustive exercise capacity in mice (Published in Nutrients, May 2018). The benefits the researchers state is from the bodies ability to improve the utilisation of fat, which is the largest pool of energy within the body. The 8 week keto dieters also dropped weight dramatically, which is a good route to improving power to weight ratio. This loss of weight was even after the participants on the Keto diet consumed more calories. An additional benefit was that even though the keto diet participants showed improved running time, there was no increase in aggravated muscle injury.
