Fasting More Powerful Than Some Drugs Study Finds (Video)

Fasting is the time you spend without eating or drinking something. It turns on your body’s repair mode and helps in restoring hormonal balances.

A 2014 study based on animals found that fasting improves overall health. It regulates blood pressure, normalizes insulin sensitivity and reduces inflammation. Intermittent fasting optimizes health and lowers the risk of developing chronic ailments.

Intermittent Fasting

To try this, you have to fast for sixteen hours straight and arrange your meals in an eight-hour span. You should eat your food between noon and 8 p.m. Start off with this schedule, and you won’t have any trouble as you sleep through half of the fasting.

Some like to drink coffee or tea.

When it comes to food choices, you should lower the intake of carbs and eat more healthy fats, such as coconut oil, olive oil, olives, butter, eggs, avocados, and nuts. The only challenge brought by this type of fasting is the fact that your body will have to get used to fewer meals. The production of ghrelin (hunger hormone) will adjust to your needs and new schedule.

Health benefits

  • Improves biomarkers of a disease
  • Balances ghrelin levels
  • Prevents/reduces free radical damage and inflammation
  • Lowers triglyceride levels
  • Improves memory and learning skills
  • Promotes healthy weight loss
  • Soothes the side effects of chemo drugs

1. Brain

Fasting is great for your brain as it promotes neurogenesis and improves neuronal plasticity. Mice who ate large infrequent meals marked improvement in their brain health. Fasting encourages the maintenance of neuronal pathways, and the brain is able to repair itself.

2. Weight loss

Your body burns fats during the fasting period, and it has enough time to recover.

This method will help you melt fat and increase muscle mass easily without any changes in your overall diet.

3. Longevity

In 1945, experts at the University of Chicago found that intermittent fasting helps mice live longer. It delays the development of disorders that cause death.

Another study found that intermittent fasting boosts autophagy and eliminates damaged muscles, including those related to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

4. Chemo

Intermittent fasting inhibits cancer cell growth in mice. Fasting relieves the symptoms in cancer patients, increasing their tolerance for chemo drugs. This also lowers the risk of death and increases cure rates.

      Fasting is like giving your digestion sleeping time.
