Everything you wanted to know about KetoFLEX 12/3

Brain Foods 

Decades of research, combined with Dr. Bredesen’s clinical experience, has shown that specific foods and dietary patterns can help to optimize cognitive functioning, along with protecting your heart and blood vessels. This includes foods that have high levels of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, choline, vitamin D, and specific B vitamins by reducing inflammation, creating metabolic health, optimizing trophic factors, up-regulating detoxification and improving your body's vascular system to support the brain. A heavily plant-based, mildly ketogenic diet, with a variety of colors can help ensure that many different flavonoids, carotenoids, and polyphenols are consumed. We recommend reducing the amount of processed food in the diet and concentrating on non-starchy vegetables, high-quality protein, and good healthy fats to start your journey with KetoFlex 12/3.   

What is KetoFLEX 12/3? 

KetoFLEX 12/3 is part of the Bredesen Protocol to help support cognitive health.  Food is medicine, which is why nutrition is the most important part of the Bredesen Seven foundational strategy to promote neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to heal and grow new neuronal pathways.  When practicing all seven strategies together — nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, brain stimuli, detox, and supplementation — they create a powerful synergy.  Knowing which brain health foods to buy, let alone grocery shopping and preparation, can be daunting for those with cognitive decline. This plan is heavily plant-based and mildly ketogenic.  Daily meals provide <60 grams of carbohydrates per day.  The 12/3 represents a recommended minimum 12 hour fast, at least 3 hours before bed. 

What is included in the kit? 

Nutrition for Longevity makes it easy with meal kits low in carbohydrates (<60 grams/day) to support mild ketosis, six hard-boiled pasture-raised eggs for brain health, and options to include our high polyphenol olive oil.  Protein choices include pescetarian or flexitarian options in addition to vegan dishes in every kit.  Our kits include extra leafy greens to add to any meal for a combined powerful neuroprotective effect. 

What about the olive oil in my kit? Is it a high-quality premium oil? 

The Longevity Phyto-Boost Organic olive oil comes from heirloom olive groves in Sardinia, Italy, known for centenarians. It’s cold-pressed and made in small batches to preserve a high concentration of polyphenols. The current batch of oil was harvested in July of 2022 and has a polyphenol content of 655. Taste the premium quality for yourself!
