What Does Science Say About Fasting?

by | May 26, 2020 | FAST FACTS

Whether you try intermittent fasting, 24-hour fasts, or prolonged fasts, the science is overwhelmingly in favor of most fasting practices.

Research indicates that fasting improves

  • arterial health
  • cognitive health
  • digestive health
  • longevity
  • DNA
  • body composition
  • sleep quality and duration
  • and numerous other aspects of health.

Many of the benefits of fasting come from the cellular clean-up process known as autophagy. Science shows that this process reduces inflammation, increases immunity, and is even important for fighting cancer.
