Intermittent fasting and some of its benefits

I want to share with you some amazing health benefits of intermittent fasting. It can act as a mild stress that triggers cellular adaptations and changes mainly in the brain. In other places as well, we already talked about the benefits of fasting. Your weight, your performance with exercise, and the protection of your muscles. They don’t become weak or destroyed but check this out. This factor will increase this factor in the brain, called the brain-derived neurotrophic factor. 

Some health benefits of intermittent fasting

What is the brain-derived neurotrophic factor?

What is that thing? Something in the brain that will increase the survival of existing neurons in brain cells. It promotes the development of new neurons in the hippocampus, which is the area of the brain that is damaged in Alzheimer’s disease. That structure in the brain helps you. It works like a GPS and lets you find where you are in space and time. (1)

So, if you’re going outside, you may face these questions: Where did I park? Where do I put my keys? Where am I going? And I can’t follow directions. That type of thing would be the destruction of the hippocampus. Insulin resistance, in fact, will wreak havoc on that framework. It just deprives it of oxygen and starves it as well. Also, it’s involved in memory and learning long-term memory and short-term memories. This is something if you know someone that has parked.

Intermittent fasting, amyloid plaque, and other health benefits

For Alzheimer’s symptoms or dementia, you need to put them on this immediately to protect against amyloid plaque in "Ingen abrade" and Alzheimer’s patients. Intermittent fasting protects against that. It will also increase something called autophagy, which is like the many garbage disposals of the cell which allows the toxins to come out of the body a lot easier and dispose of them. Because patients with depression and Alzheimer’s have a lot of excess toxic waste in the nerve cells in general. This will make it very clean. Intermittent fasting can also increase insulin responsiveness. If you have instant resistance to prediabetes, this is what you need to do too, actually. Add your comments below.
