The ketogenic diet has unique effects on the body and inside of the cells that provide benefits that reach beyond what any other diet can provide.
The combination of a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet and carbohydrate restriction facilitates ketone production, which reduces insulin levels, triggers autophagy (cellular clean-up), increases mitochondrial production and efficiency, reduces inflammation, and burns fat. Also, it is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children
