Fasting Benefits

-

While we do not practice full fasting for long periods of time or fasting only with water. We do advocate Intermittent Fasting which has been proven to be highly effective for weight loss, detoxification and overall health and wellbeing.

In these studies, study 1, study 2 & study 3 you can see the proven benefits of fasting for intermittent periods of time.

Fasting has also been shown to be great for keeping your body from aging at the cellular level – the part of a cell that is called the mitochondria cell.

Our bodies have cells, and within those cells are the mitochondria cells, which basically, are the energy powerhouses of the cells. 90% of energy created by our body is created by the mitochondria cells, be it energy in the brain cells, liver cells or anywhere else.

The mitochondria cell is like a digestive system within our cells, which converts all the food (ie, sugars, fat and protein) we eat into energy the body can use. The mitochondria cell essentially takes the food we eat and creates ATP (adenosine triphosphate) through the ATP synapse (an enzyme), which is like a motor within our cells that spins when positively charged electrons break through the outer membrane of the mitochondria and hits the ATP synapse which causes it to create energy and heat. The heat is how the body burns fat.

One other benefit, and a huge benefit, of intermittent fasting is that you secrete a higher and sustained level of growth hormone. Human growth hormone is produced in the pituitary gland of your brain and is at its highest level first thing in the morning because you’ve been fasting while asleep. The moment that you eat something, it stops.

When we were younger, we all noticed that we recovered a lot faster from any strenuous exercise the day before, and how we burned calories quicker and more efficiently. Human growth hormone is essential for recovery, cell growth and cell regeneration. This is the power of human growth hormones. So, when we fast, we secrete more human growth hormones which in turn help us maintain our body weight and live a healthier life.
