A new study found daily intermittent fasting for ~ 17-19 hours was sufficient to enhance fat loss, metabolic health and bio-markers linked longevity (autophagy) as well as cancer prevention.
00:00 Fasting 17 to 19 hours per day for 30 days increased autophagy and increased tumor suppressor P53.
02:10 Autophagy increased, favorable changes were made in the inflammasome hub, and there was a decrease in senescence-associated-signaling molecules.
03:00 P53 helps repair DNA damage, prevents senescence, and contributes to reduced atherogenic risk.
06:05 Autophagy has tissue-specific benefits, especially in the liver and brain.
07:35 Regular exercisers have a great increase in fasted-associated autophagy initiation proteins.
08:35 Long duration fasts can catabolize lean mass, possibly increasing risk for cardiovascular disease.
