The Christmas Story behind Keto Supplements

the ketogenic diet and epilepsy keto supplements exogenous ketones

Did you ever want to know why we created Keto Supplements?

Over 5 years ago, Francisco started to have random seizures and was diagnosed with Epilepsy. The doctors and neurologists prescribed medication, and thinking that doctors are right, Francisco started taking it.

However, the medication had horrible side effects that included depression, fatigue and headaches. In addition, they didn’t prevent his seizures either. So Francisco was suffering through all of these side effects yet still having seizures!

Just over a year ago we became interested in bio hacking and found Dom D’Agostino’s work and a wealth of research on the ketogenic diet being used for preventing seizures in children in the 1920s. Francisco was inspired and immediately commenced the ketogenic diet. In support, I decided to join him in keto and we both experienced tremendous benefits, including higher energy levels and sharper focus—as well as getting to eat copious amounts of delicious fatty foods!

Since then Francisco has not had any seizures and the positive side effects of the ketogenic diet have buffered the negative side effects of the medication!

It begs the question: Shouldn’t the ketogenic diet be the first recourse instead of medication?

Exogenous Ketones as a Christmas Present

This time last year I wanted to get Francisco exogenous ketones as a Christmas present. Having watched the Dom D’Agostino talk on how exogenous ketones can prevent seizures in deep sea divers—it occurred to me that the ketones could be an incredible fall-back option for Francisco. Perhaps he could have carbs and treats on occasion but not worry too much about having a seizure. But they were hard to find in the UK—and in February this year I had a light bulb moment whilst listening to a James Altucher podcast— and exclaimed to Francisco: ‘Let’s import exogenous ketones because we cannot be the only people in the UK looking for them!’—and so Keto Supplements was born.
