A new study, not yet published, suggests that taking ketone supplementation might help reduce the frequency of migraine attacks. An improvement of migraine problems is a common experience on a keto diet.
Preliminary evidence indicates that a daily dietary supplement providing ketones can reduce the frequency of migraine headaches with no adverse effects.
Increasing evidence suggests an energy deficit disorder exists in migraine, the researchers note. By supplying ketones as an alternative fuel to glucose, several deleterious components of the deficit may be avoided.
