Event Details

The Science of Nutritional Ketosis
BioCeuticals Seminar Series with Professor Dominic D’Agostino

Professor Dominic D’Agostino focuses on nutritional ketosis (NK) research and how we can harness this physiological state to improve neurological health, biomarkers of metabolic health and stress resilience. The presentation emphasises how NK alters metabolic physiology and how ketones, beta hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate, influence cellular bioenergetics and confer protection through specific signaling pathways associated with neuroprotective function, suppression of inflammation and targeting cancer metabolism.

The seminar will be filmed at ABC studios in Sydney. All registered attendees will get access to this session recording post event.


Attend any two of our National Seminars (Pyrroles, Histamine and Methylation, Holistic Children’s Health with Dr Elisa Song or the Science of Ketogenesis with A/Prof Dominic D’Agostino) and the 3rd is FREE

Our Speakers

A/Prof Dominic D’Agostino

Dominic D’Agostino is an Associate Professor in Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He is also a Research Scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC). The main focus of his lab over the last 10 years has been understanding the neuroprotective and anticonvulsant mechanism of the ketogenic diet and ketone metabolite supplementation. The presentation will clarify the definition of nutritional ketosis, implementation strategies (diet vs supplementation), pitfalls, adapting to lifestyle and personalising an approach to fit your needs.  Also discussed will be the cellular mechanism and practical applications of NK for medical conditions, including neurological disorders, cancer and inflammatory processes.
