5. Fewer Seizures
The so-called “keto” ketogenic diet is very big right now, and relies on a high fat intake to generate ketones in the bloodstream. The keto diet will cause weight loss, but it is also being studied for the treatment of various disorders. One of those is epilepsy.
Research indicates that eating a high fat/low carb diet can reduce the incidence of seizures in epileptic children, even if multiple other medications failed to help. In fact, the fatty acids in coconut oil are frequently used to induce ketosis in epileptic patients of all ages.
