Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It aids in weight loss. It takes more work to turn fat into energy than it takes to turn carbohydrates into energy. Reduces acne. It may help reduce the risk of cancer, improves heart health, may protect brain functioning, potentially reduces seizures, improves health in women with PCOS. Longer use of ketogenic diet is not good for the diabetic patient.
