Study finds potential health benefits to fasting

fasting health benefits

A little bit of hunger might just be good for your health, according to a new study. Researchers at University of California, Irvine found evidence that “optimal fasting in a timed manner would be strategic to positively affect cellular functions and protect against aging-associated diseases.”

In the study, mice were subjected to 24-hour periods of fasting, during which they exhibited a reduction in oxygen consumption and energy expenditure, matching results observed in humans. The idea is that fasting rewires the metabolism by affecting circadian clocks in the liver and skeletal muscle.

Makes you hungry just reading about it.
