Fasting is very beneficial for the human body, and it has become quite popular due to the effect it has on the weight loss process. However, not many people know that it offers amazing effects as well as on the overall well being and health.
Individuals that fast and implement VLC (very low calorie) diets maintain that they live longer, look younger and feel better contrary to the ones who follow a standard eating regime.
According to a researcher at the University of Southern California fasting for three days can completely regenerate the immune system, removing the weaknesses and making the body stronger.
Many scientists think that this information can assist the ones with weakened immune systems like the older generation and cancer treatment patients.
Thanks to the fasting the body elevates the production of white blood cells, which are needed in the fight against infections.
The immune system of our body is constantly being attacked by external forces and by our own mistreatment of the body.
According to scientists fasting for three days will “flip a regenerative switch”.
Professor Valter Longo, the lead scientist regarding this issue maintains, quoting:
“It gives the ‘OK’ for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system. And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting.
Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.”
Therefore, introduce fasting for a couple of days as a routine as it is great for the body, it resets many processes in the body, lowers the appetite, assist you in better sleeping hours and raises energy levels in the body.
