Ketones Boost Muscle Health, Says New Research by Dr. Benjamin Bikman

Last year, I was fortunate enough to see Dr. Benjamin Bikman at KetoCon, and it was one of the best presentations I’d ever seen. I began following him on Twitter, and was excited to see that his team had published some new research.

He agreed to schedule some time to come onto the PricePlow channel, and the result was this massively informative interview where we learned about all kinds of things:

If this is a disease where we gotta control glucose, eat less glucose! It’s mind-boggling!

— Dr. Ben Bikman

  • A behind-the-scenes look at being a professional scientist
  • insulin resistance
  • misconceptions about ketosis
  • Type-II diabetics going on the keto diet, and finally
  • his lab’s new research showing that exogenous ketones help a muscle cell thrive (full-text and images below).

We finished off with some of his own personal philosophies on training, supplementation and BHB salt usage, and never letting your dietary choices negatively affect your family.

This is a must-watch interview if you’re interested in insulin, diabetes, the keto diet, or ketones in general:
