Welcome to the HVMN Research Round Up, hosted by Dr. Brianna Stubbs. Today, we’ll be going down one of Brianna's personal favorite rabbit holes: The way that ketones from the ketogenic diet and exogenous ketone affect inflammation.

Is the ketogenic diet as a whole responsible for the reduction of inflammation? Or is it the specific ketone body BHB (beta hydroxybutyrate) that has the most impact? This is a major question that Brianna brings up and explores in this episode.

We’ll go through three studies on this topic, where Brianna will walk you through the research process, discuss and analyze the results, and muse over the potential implications.
