Intermittent Fasting

Can I use fasting to enhance stem cells?

A stem cell is a cell that doesn’t have a purpose yet, it turns into something when the body needs a certain cell. There are certain parts of the body that can turnover cells very quickly, some would take longer and others wouldn’t. What triggers stem cells is prolonged fasting for 72 hours or even longer. The fat-burning effect that occurs in fasting really helps to fuel the stem cells.

Certain parts of the Body that can Turnover New Cells:

• Hippocampus – It is a part of the brain that involves a relay switch with memory and stress responses.

• Beta Cells (Pancreas)

• Bone – The immune cells can be replaced.

• Colon Cells

PKA – A gene that needs to shut down for stem cells to spread and rebuild. Prolonged fasting could lower PKA.
