U.S. Army Developed Magic Elixir That Can Treat Diabetes, Epilepsy And Alzheimer’s
World

There is a new drink currently being developed at the behest of the U.S. Army that is said to boost your energy, shed fat, help deal with diabetes, treat epilepsy and possibly even cure Alzheimer’s.

Developed by Kieran Clarke, a professor of physiological biochemistry at Oxford University and the head of its Cardiac Metabolism Research Group, the new drink doesn’t involve a new drug- it only contains that which our bodies already produce naturally: ketones.

Ketones are the tiny yet powerful sources of energy that our bodies produce when we start to use up our fat stores for more energy after we run out of carbs. Now, instead of having to cut out carbs from your diet, you can simply drink ketones. It will increase your energy, reduce your hunger, and get you into “looking better naked” shape in no time.

Why would the U.S. fund such a project? Back in the year 2003 they were looking for a way to raise soldiers’ energy and increase their mental and physical performance. They found that most soldiers would double up on ammunition and leave out the recommended portion of rations. With this new elixir, soldiers will be able to be more focused and less hungry for longer. This elixir will literally save lives.

Increased levels of ketones in the body have been directly linked to helping children with epilepsy. Unfortunately, in the past the only way to get the ketones needed was to consume high-fat diets, now there is a healthier way. The only problem that remains is getting the funding to finish the trials.

While the U.S. army is interested, no pharmaceutical company is willing to invest because they don’t feel that they can turn a natural, bodily produced, product into a top-selling treatment. But you never know, someone may decide to donate money because it’s the right thing to do- it can happen.
