Keto diet has been associated with weight loss, improved cognitive function and a number of other benefits. Now you can add one more to the list – this could help you fight the flu.

A Yale University study, published in Science Immunology, found that a high-fat and low-carbohydrate strategy activates a subset of cells in the lung that can increase mucus production and catch the influenza virus. According to the study, the mucus prevents the virus from affecting the lungs.

But do not forget the carbohydrates. The study was conducted on mice and a statement from Yale University did not indicate that there are plans to repeat the experiment on humans.

Nevertheless, the results provided a better understanding of how the body fights the flu. In particular, they found that the body's gamma delta T cells, whose receptors support the immune system, are critical to the health of mice and humans.

Mice bred without gamma delta T cells, according to the study, found no benefit from the ketodate. Cells with the cells had a higher survival rate when exposed to the flu than those who received a high carbohydrate diet.

"This was a totally unexpected finding," said the co-senior author of the study, Akiko Iwasaki, the Waldemar Von Zedtwitz Professor of Immunobiology and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, and a researcher from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
