Clinical Trial shows the Beneficial Effects of Keto Diet


Clinical trial finds the keto diet has positive effects on the body

Are you stressed out due to weight gain? Have you tried and tested the various weight loss methods? If so, you must have heard about the keto diet and its role in weight loss.

A recent clinical trial has demonstrated the positive effects of the keto diet on the body. The ketogenic diet, known commonly as the keto diet, has gained a lot of attention in recent years due to its potential health benefits, particularly for weight loss and improved blood sugar control.

“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carbohydrate and high fat and protein diet. The rationale behind it is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates.

The keto diet is based on the principle that by reducing the supply of carbohydrates, which are the primary source of energy for the body, you can force the body to burn fat for fuel, thereby causing weight loss.

The Keto diet has gained popularity in recent years, however, concerns have been raised about the effects of this high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet on cardiovascular health.

To address this issue, a clinical trial was conducted recently to investigate the effects of the keto diet on the cardiovascular and overall health of the patients.

The clinical study published in the journal Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders involved 14 participants who were given a keto diet for 140 days. The keto diet provided 5% calories from carbohydrates, 70% from fat, and 25% from protein. Participants were assessed multiple times during this clinical trial and parameters such as body weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose levels were measured. Additionally, several blood tests were also conducted.

The results of the clinical study showed that the average body fat percentage of the participants decreased by 4.41%. There was also an increase in the average muscle mass (4.38%) and the levels of beneficial fats along with a decrease in blood pressure (5.3%) and blood glucose levels of the participants.

Hence, this clinical study has shown the overall beneficial effects of the keto diet on the body. Not only has it resulted in weight loss but has also had positive effects on the body’s general health.

The results of this clinical trial suggest that a very low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet may be effective for improving cardiovascular health in adults.

In conclusion, this clinical trial provides strong evidence that the keto diet helps reduce body weight and maintain the general health of the patients. Thus, it can be said with certainty that the keto diet is a safe and effective intervention for obese people looking to lose weight.

If you are considering trying a ketogenic diet, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine if this diet is appropriate for you.
