Ketogenic Q&A Part 2: Ketones, Fasting, and the Brain


Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida

In Q&A Part 2, Dominic D’Agostino, PhD focuses his discussion on the brain. Dr. D’Agostino explores misconceptions that exist regarding brain physiology, such as glucose dependency. He focuses on the neuroprotective effects of intermittent fasting, reducing glucose and insulin levels, and increasing ketone levels. Dr. D’Agostino shares how a targeted ketogenic approach can reduce neuroinflammation, enhance brain energy metabolism, and activate genetic changes that support brain protection and resilience. You will hear about the research technology Dr. D’Agostino and his team are using and the molecular observations they have revealed through the science and application of the ketogenic diet.
