THE BENEFITS OF INTERMITTENT FASTING
Intermittent fasting may be the most under-rated, yet one of the most important tools for upgrading your longevity, health and wellbeing.
It reduces inflammation, improves autophagy (cleaning up of dead and sick/ tumor cells). It turns on several longevity genes.
It acts like a reset button for the body. During times of not eating or digesting, our body can do its ‘cleaning up’: it can get rid of any old or sick cells, and also any of the small mutations that we all have every day, but that the body is perfectly capable of getting rid off if only we give it the opportunity and space to do so.
When the body is digesting, it cannot do this cleaning process, and old or sick cells can accumulate, ultimately leading to chronic degenerative conditions and ‘aging’.
