Ketone Bodies Help Maintain a Large Pool of Adult Intestinal Stem Cells

News

Researchers at MIT have discovered an unexpected finding of consuming a ketogenic diet. Ketone bodies are known to activate signaling pathways implicated in stem cell differentiation. In a mouse model, they have shown that high levels of ketone bodies help the intestine to maintain a large pool of adult stem cells. These stem cells contribute to keeping the lining of the intestine healthy.
