so today i want to cover all thedifferent effects that fasting can createon your body i've done a lot of videos but i wanted to create one pecially for someone new to fasting so you can seehow powerful fasting is for the entire body so let's start withyour brain the first thing that fasting will help you with is it will help youstimulate something called bdnf brain derived neurotrophic factor
you can look at this as miracle grove for the brain

 it basicallyhelps to repair and regenerate neurons yeahyou would think if you stopped eating your brain cells would dieno they thrive increasing stress resistanceso your brain becomes resistant to stress so it can handlemore stress interesting increased neurogenesiswhich actually is part of this right.

here so you're generating the growth ofmore neurons and nerve cells and nervesupport cells especially if there's damage if you havealzheimer's parkinson's this is very very important then we have the production of more mitochondriamitochondria is the energy factories in all the cellsincluding your brain so if these guys work right hereyou're going to have memory

you're going to be able to focus you're going to havebetter cognitive function fasting helps improve the numberof mitochondria in the brain also decreases inflammationand i don't even need to get into that

because i think most people understandhow deadly inflammation is on the different parts of the bodybut there's probably nothing more powerful than fastingto handle inflammation okay there's more things that fastingwill do but i think that's a good summarynow the liver

the first thing that fasting will helpyou with is making insulin more sensitivewhich is going to help blood sugars pre-diabetesdiabetes most people have insulin resistanceand

so insulin doesn't work that well fasting helpsmake insulin work so your blood sugars are going to do betteryour absorption of nutrients are going to do better also fasting helpsin the detoxification process both detoxification of the phase onephase two enzymes to take poisonous chemicals and turn them intowater-soluble harmless particles as well as stimulating something calledautophagy which is your cells recycling mechanismto take damaged cells and make them new againfasting helps increase your

antioxidant network also fasting is amazing toreduce a fatty liver

to take the fat in the liverand use that for energy and clear out the fat on the liverthereby increasing the function of the liver in the detoxification of hormonesits metabolism of food in the storage of vitaminsin the production of bile the list goes on and on and onfasting helps decrease inflammation in the liveras well as in conditions like hepatitis

if you're going to decrease inflammationyou're also going to decrease fibrosis that's scar tissue and fibrosisturns into cirrhosis and then we get to the gutokay we're talking about the small intestine and the large intestinefasting increases the diversity of microbes in your gut apparently thatstress causes this survival mechanism of differenttypes of microbes growing which is fascinatingfasting decreases inflammation in the gut and

there's a lot of conditionsthat involve inflammation also it decreasessibo very very important i'll put a link down below for more information on thatif you haven't heard that uh video also it fastinghelps make your microbiome your friendlybacteria live longer

okay then let's talk about theimmune systems huge effects fasting will actually helpyou become immune to pathogens because the white blood cells increasein strength and size and in their  offpathogens periodic prolonged fasting like

72 hour scan increase stem cells in your immune system

so you're basically growing a new immune systemnow the fasting effect on the pancreas is hugebecause if you think about it when you're eating you're constantlytriggering insulin all the time especially whenyou're snacking

so that's creating damage in littlecells that make insulin it's in the pancreaswell when you fast you reverse the flow andyou give the cells that make insulin a chance to heal and rejuvenateso you start to develop insulin sensitivity insulin starts workingbetter that's why if you're pre-diabetic if you're a diabeticit's essential,

that you do intermittent fastingfasting is going to help your blood sugars then we get to the fat cellfasting stimulates lipolysis basically the breakdown of fatokay so we get rid of the fat cells if they're too big if they're toostuffed

they reduce in size and you start generating ketones so youturn this into ketones which can be used for energyyour brain loves ketones you get more energy from ketonesyou improve the insulin resistance situationso if you're resistant to insulin that conditionimproves in fact fasting is the thing that creates.

a faster metabolism

which is very different thanstarving or some low-calorie diet i'll put a link down below for moreinformation on that because i just did a video on thatvery interesting okay leptin it decreases leptinso you're going to find that the the messages for hunger are going to go waydown also it reduces inflammation which isgoing to help you in correcting insulin resistanceokay

let's talk about the muscles the first thing that's going to happen isinsulin is going to become more sensitiveso

it's going to work better so because insulinis anabolic which means you're going to actually be able to build up yourmuscles the more insulin works you're also going to get proteinsparing so when you fast the muscles go into acertain state where they stop breaking down okay,

 so it's going to help you prevent protein loss from your musclesalso increasing stress resistance so your body just becomes overallstronger and more fit to survive then we get to the heart muscle weincrease more parasympathetic now parasympatheticis the opposite of sympathetic which is flutter fightstress mode so this is relaxation mode

when people do fastingthey feel calm their heart relaxes they're able to rest and digest better also the heart rate comes down and there's an increase in something calledheart rate variability normally you have theseheartbeats that are supposed to be on average i'd say .

72 beats per hourright

well you would think in a healthy heartyou need the same amount of time for each beatbut that's not the case the healthier the heartthe more erratic or the more variable the heartbeat should bebecause variability helps you in the adaptation of certain things and it'sless rigid so there's a test that you can doi used to do it in my office that measures thisand people with a very healthy heart would have a veryhigh hiv and

they would be able to handle a lot of stressbecause they have more parasympathetic and they have ahuge recovery backup system the more rigid the heart is the stiffer thearteries the less variance you have between theheartbeats itself okay less blood pressure because thingsare more elastic and increased stress resistance .


so the heart becomes stronger to fight stress so in summary you cansee that fasting creates some very cool effects and i didn't getinto the anti-cancer effects and there's many other effects but atleast this will convince you to try fasting yourself thanks forwatching

hey we're back with another amazingrecipe no grains no sugar totally keto there's nosuffering in keto absolutely not karen and it's an immunesystem builder absolutely

you have to check this out ithink you should hurry up watch the recipe and make it yourselfit's just so easy to be keto but is it simple it's super simple wehope you enjoy making it as much as we are enjoying eating it.
