A few of the benefits of Ketogenic Fasting for improved Health & Life Span:
One of the many benefits of fasting is increasing a person’s healthy life span.
Ketogenic fasting increases, balances, and improves sensitivity to key hormones that practically regulate the aging process.
By using fasting you can increase the ‘anti-aging’ human growth hormone and reverse some of the aging processes your body may be experiencing.
When your body is fasting in a ketogenic state with exercise added at specific times it has been found that human growth hormone (the anti-aging hormone) can increase by up to 1300%.
There is no other technique or supplement currently known that increases the anti-aging hormones to this degree.
Concurrent with raising the human growth hormone, fasting lowers insulin levels and improves insulin sensitivity. Allowing the body to move into deeper states of ketosis (using fat for fuel) which helps heal the body on a cellular level.
Additionally, fasting has been shown to balance hormones used by multiple regions of the body allowing for improved organ function which again helps slow or even reverse aspects of aging.
By improving your body’s ability to regulate hormones and utilize them you can change your relationship with how your body ages and improve your overall health span.
But that is just the beginning. Did you know that your body has a ‘secret’ built-in anti-aging process?
There is a process called autophagy that is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells. Through the process of autophagy, the body can remove dysfunctional cells and recycle parts of cells as well as clean out harmful bacteria and toxins on the cellular level.
It is a process of recycling and cleaning at the same time, it’s like hitting a reset button for your body.
Do you know what is the most effective way to activate autophagy?
By simply engaging in an intermittent fasting schedule you can activate autophagy on a daily basis.
The state of autophagy is so powerful that the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2016 was awarded to Yoshinori Ohsumi “for his discoveries of the mechanisms for autophagy.”
As you are probably beginning to see, there is a whole technology that is anti-aging that has not been tapped into by 99% of individuals. It is simple, well researched, and available to anyone who learns how to use it.
In addition to what we have covered so far I want to go over stem cell therapy and how fasting can help you take advantage of stem cell regeneration to heal your body making you younger, more energized, active, and healthy.
As we age stem cells do not perform as well as they do when we are younger, however, stem cell regeneration and performance can be greatly improved with the use of fasting!
So what are stem cells?
“Stem cells are the body’s “master cells.” They are the building blocks of all organs, tissues, blood, and the immune system. In many tissues they serve as an internal repair system, regenerating to replace lost or damaged cells for the life of a person.”
(source National Stem Cell Foundation)
‘As stem cells age, their renewal ability deteriorates and their ability to differentiate into the various cell types is altered. Accordingly, it is suggested aging-induced deterioration of stem cell functions may play a key role in the pathophysiology of the various aging-associated disorders.’
So stem cells are another major factor in the aging process. Stem cells that regenerate, and differentiate into other cells = longer health span and ability to live life to its fullest!
Make sense? Ok now let’s look at how fasting influences stem cells:
A study conducted by researchers at MIT revealed that stem cells drastically increased their rate of regeneration when a person was in a “fasted state.” This discovery was found in both aged and young subjects equally.
For many decades, scientists have known that low caloric intake is linked with enhanced longevity in humans and other organisms. The researchers at MIT were interested in exploring how fasting exerts its effects at the molecular level, specifically in the intestine.
So the takeaway is that you can engage in several anti-aging processes by learning how to fast in a ketogenic state. This is very different from starving yourself by not eating. When you are fasting in a ketogenic state you will feel bright, energized, and not hungry.
Ok so now all you have to do is learn how to fast consistently, safely, and in a healthy, enjoyable way so that you can increase the stem cells available in your body for cellular repair and rejuvenation!
Fasting heals your cells and improves cognitive function and overall body health.
