Dr Stephen Hussey has dedicated his medical career and research to understanding the heart and is here to set the record straight on saturated fat consumption and the real root cause of heart disease. We discuss how the heart and many of our organs are more fuel efficient on ketones as we generate more ATP, generate less oxidative stress and less free radicals or Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS).
This episode is all about how being fat adapted, having lowered internal oxidative stress from burning both fat and carbs instead of just sugar predominantly for fuel, and utilizing techniques to lower stress in our lifestyles are a "killer" combination for lowering mortality risk from heart attacks and strokes. Amazing compelling episode to share with anyone who might benefit from learning how keto and low carb lifestyles support healthy hearts and optimal cardiovascular health!
