In this video, Dr. Berg talks about why ketosis and intermittent fasting works.
HORMESIS: Adaptive response to low dose stress (Favorable biological effects). EUSTRESS – Positive Stress.
This word means good stress like for example, exercise. It is where you are exposing the body into low dose toxin or stress and the body adapts and it becomes stronger. With ketones, you are shifting the fuel-source which creates a little stress in the cells and with intermittent fasting, it also creates a little bit of stress to create all sorts of effects.
1. A massive surge of antioxidants defense – antioxidants help counter free radicals (an atom with an unpaired electron).
The body has the ability to generate antioxidants. B-hydroxybutyrate triggers this effect.
2. Enhanced Resistance to Oxidative Stress – Resist chronic diseases
3. Enhanced Mitochondrial Function
4. Enhanced Nutrient Absorption
One of the functions of ketones is it helps the mitochondria generate and maintain energy during the nutrient deprivation (fasting or starving).
Symptoms of Adaptation
• A nutrient that helps fat oxidation (fat burning)
• Potassium/magnesium (to counter the acid effect that is generated by ketones)
• Fiber-microbes increase B vitamins
