Fungi linked to cognitive impairment can be aided by keto diet

According to an August 2020 NeuroScience article, scientists say the keto diet has an unique ability to help regulate fungi living with the gut bacteria of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The principal investigator of this research Hariom Yadav is assistant professor of molecular medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine, of Wake Forest Baptist Health.

Yadav and his team tested the rRNA TS1 gene in 11 individuals, 6 with MCI issues, to see how the Mediterranean ketogenic diet and American Heart Association diet influences the patients' cognitive functions, specifically "Alzheimer’s markers in cerebrospinal fluid and gut bacteria".

While Dr. Yadav said more research needed to be done to determine more specifics, he said this study shows that there is a connection between the keto diet in reducing harmful fungi in the gut which has been associated with Alzheimer’s symptoms.
