Imagine if you had a switch that could balance your metabolism and do a deep cleanse without the use of expensive fan dangled detox kits? Your body is designed to do so by using a genius mechanism known as autophagy. Celebrities have discovered that intermittent fasting, or autophagy, is one of the best techniques used to turn on this anti aging reboot switch.
Autophagy may sound like a mouthful but it is in fact the ultimate recycling system. It preserves the health of tissue by replacing out-dated and damaged parts of your cell with fresh ones.
“Your cells create membranes that hunt out scraps of dead, diseased, or worn-out cells; gobble them up; strip ’em for parts; and use the resulting molecules for energy or to make new cell parts,” explains Dr. Colin Champ, a board-certified oncologist and assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In the process autophagy also eats up any pathogenic organisms such as bad bacteria’s.
