Live Chats- Autophagy FastingApr 10, 2023
Have you heard about autophagy fasting? It's a process that helps our body clean out old cells and recycle them for new ones. Autophagy fasting involves a period of time where you can only have water and a few other liquids and no food, so your body is forced to use its own resources to sustain itself, which is easier if you are in a state of ketosis.
One of the best ways to approach it is to be in a state of ketosis, this makes fasting so much easier and the process so much quicker because we have less glucose to burn through.
Exercise is also a great way to get the body into autophagy.
During autophagy fasting, your body breaks down old and damaged cells and proteins, which can help improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Autophagy fasting has also been linked to improved mental health and clarity Here are a few points I find interesting
- The length of an autophagy fast can vary, but research suggests that it takes about 24-48 hours for autophagy to begin. This will vary depending on the type of diet you have come from. Once autophagy is activated, it can continue for several days, depending on the length of the fast.
- Autophagy fasting may not be suitable for everyone. Best to ask first before heading into a big fast like this. Don't approach this type of fasting if you are new to the fasting world.
- Mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells, and they are responsible for producing energy. Healthy mitochondria are important for overall health and can help improve energy levels and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
- Autophagy fasting can help improve the health of our mitochondria, leading to better overall health and energy levels.
