Autophagy, the subject of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, is a metabolic that kicks after a period of fasting. During this, cells disassemble and remove their dysfunctional components. This process is incredibly nourishing to your body’s performance and cognitive functions. In congruence with this, influence is reduced and the longevity of mitochondria is promoted. I definitely feel this is a valuable topic to consider. Many talk about the benefits of fasting with regards to fat loss, but the even deeper benefits are to the brain, mitochondria, and metabolism. Through this, focus, energy, and longevity increase.
Fasting enhances growth hormone secretion and amplifies the complex rhythms of growth hormone secretion in man.
