In this video, Dr. Berg talks about why the brain does not need to adapt to ketosis. The brain has the capacity to run on ketones immediately and it also prefers ketones as its fuel source. A certain portion (1/3) of the brain will always run on glucose but 2/3 of the brain runs on ketones. 23% of all the energy that is generated is used by the brain.
Sources of Ketones
1. Endogenous – means the body can make them by lowering the carbohydrate.
2. Exogenous – ketones salt, MCT oil

The blood ketone levels are what determines how many ketones are in the brain – insulin should be in the normal range and glucose level needs to be low.
Part of the Brain that uses Ketones
1. Cerebral Cortex
2. Hypothalamus
3. Pituitary Gland
4. Pineal Gland
