The Keto diet as a possible Covid-19 preventative.
Please pay attention and read carefully, this information can "potentially" prevent Covid-19 "Please note, this isnt a substitute for masks, and I'm not downplaying the severity of the said virus"

There is currently no existing scientific evidence "demonstrating" that a ketogenic diet can prevent coronavirus, however, early testing in mice found Keto as a way to prevent the flu. For these reasons it's currently listed as "Myth" FOR NOW, please, Just read on.

THE KETOGENIC DIET AND COVID-19

Johns Hopkins University have been doing clinical trials on Covid-19 patients that are on ventilators. They are putting the trial patients on a Ketogenic diet to reduce ventilator time by essentially reducing inflammation.

The ketogenic diet is a high fat, low carbohydrate, adequate-protein diet that promotes metabolic ketosis (ketone body production) through hepatic metabolism of fatty acids. High fat, low carbohydrate diets have been shown to reduce duration of ventilator support and partial pressure carbon dioxide in patients with acute respiratory failure. In addition, metabolic ketosis reduces systemic inflammation. This mechanism could be leveraged to halt the cytokine storm characteristic of COVID-19 infection.

The hypothesis of the study is that the administration of a ketogenic diet will improve gas exchange, reduce inflammation, and duration of mechanical ventilation. The plan is to enroll 15 intubated patients with COVID 19 infection and administer a 4:1 ketogenic formula during their intubation

THE KETOGENIC DIET AS A POSSIBLE PREVENTATIVE!

The keto diet comes with its own share of pros and cons, it has been branded as an effective way to recharge your immune system and fight influenza symptoms. The diet which centres around eating low-carb, high-fat food has been trending on social media because of a recent study which claimed that Keto diet can work by "trapping" flu virus, and ergo, could potentially block the novel coronavirus as well.

The study, which was published in the journal, Science Immunology, pointed out that the cells, once powered by Keto work by enhancing mucus production in the body and hence beat out the flu and related symptoms. In fact, the study also mentions that prolonged practice of Keto diet may even help make the body immune to several types of viruses, including coronavirus. Earlier studies have also found some evidence which suggests that the Keto diet may also block the formation of inflammasomes, which are harmful immune system activators.

Ketogenic diet can be good to cut down on your carbs, lose weight and maintain a healthy body, there is no sure shot proof that Keto is a form of defence against the novel Coronavirus.
