A diet containing MCFA, allowing to increase the serum levels of ketones, provides an alternative source of energy to the brain and partially compensate reduction of energy metabolism associated with advanced age (1).
Moreover a diet supplemented with MCFA is proven to be able to increase the concentration of Ω -3 PUFA in the cerebral cortex of the dog.
Generally, results of scientific studies at our disposal support the hypothesis that supplementation of MCFA can improve symptoms of cognitive decline related to age, providing to brain an alternative source of energy to compensate the decrease in energy metabolism (1) and increasing the concentration of Ω -3 PUFA.
