Neurogenesis is the process of growing brain cells, something that was thought impossible until about 30 years ago. Dr. Brant Cortright has been fascinated by the idea and the process for over a decade, and he’s finding a tremendous amount of similarities between his Neurogenesis Diet and keto. Primarily, the removal of sugar, processed grains, and excess carbs, and the addition of good, saturated fats in the diet are proving to be very beneficial for neurogenesis.
The rate at which brain cells can grow back is an enormous factor in rate of things like depression, Alzheimers, and many other neurological conditions.
So creating the most neurogenic friendly environment is crucial to preventing these types of afflictions.
Not only is Dr. Cortright super smart, but he’s thoughtful and insightful about his work and the future of this fledgling area of study.
Also, you’ll get a chance to hear me and Carrie talk about school, catfish, and how recipes should be constructed (and why the macros for most recipes aren’t worth anything).
