How fasting can affect your overall health
Who is Mark Mattson?
He is the current chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging. He is one of the most renowned researchers in cellular and molecular on neurodegenerative disorders.
Why is fasting supposedly good?
During experiments and studies, children would have fewer episodes of epileptic seizures when doing fasts. Fast can also help enter a state of body protective measures that help reduce the signal of the brain that start an epileptic seizure. In comparison, an overfed brain can experience uncontrolled excitation that can affect all the functions in the brain. Fasting would help have a longer life and contribute to fighting chronic disease. It would also help with age-related diseases.
Mr. Mattson explains that fasting can also improve cognitive function and other “brain” related diseases. He explains that fasting is a stress that we put on our brain. In response, our brain has to adapt, like human always does. Our brain adapts by increasing the production of protein in the brain, and that promote growth in neurons and other functions in the brain.
Fast can also put our stem cells from an inactivity state to a renewal state.
Fasting comes from our ancestors
Studies had shown that our ancestors were fasting, with no other choice, when the fast was rarer. They were able to go a long time without ever eating food.
Things to do before fasting
Mattson recommends that fasting should come in a “5 days of eating” and “2 days of fasting” a week. Fasting will be around 500-600 calories depending on if you are a man or a woman. While fasting, and another day of the week as well, one should try and drink plenty of water and tea.
In conclusion, fasting could be a great thing if someone is trying to implement benefits in his life by having the right nutrition. Following Mattson advice should help do that.
