A ketogenic drink
Improves cognition in mild cognitive impairment

The aim of the BENEFIC study was to get more energy into the brain with ketones from a medium chain triglycerides (MCT) drink to compensate for the gradual energy deficit during aging. The study shows a 2.3-fold increase in brain ketones following 6 months of MCT oil supplementation in healthy people aged 55 years or more who had a mild memory complaint. Moreover, participants improved in 4 different memory tests compared to the placebo group.

These very encouraging results were published in the prestigious scientific journal “Alzheimer’s & Dementia” in October 2020.
