Reversing the Aging Process & Killing Cancer Through Fasting

This study from Japan showed that not only does fasting speed up metabolism, it may also reverse the ageing process.


The researchers found that during fasting, 44 substances in the body increase and many of them are connected to health benefits.



Leucine, isoleucine, and ophthalmic acid - have been shown to lower as a person ages. In those who had fasted, these metabolites increased, suggesting fasting might increase molecules that help people live longer.

Dr Takayuki Teruya said, “These are very important metabolites for maintenance of muscle and antioxidant activity, respectively. This result suggests the possibility of a rejuvenating effect by fasting, which was not known until now.”


What I have been doing for 8 months now is abstaining from food from when I wake up (which is at 6:00am) until midday. I then eat my very first meal between 12:00pm and 1:00pm. This has helped me with my overall health - including brain function.


Autophagy, which literally means “self-eating,” is essentially a self-recycling of cellular waste. The idea is that when you’re fasting, your body doesn’t have to expend energy to break down and process food. With this excess energy, it can turn its attention “inward,” disposing of waste, cleaning, and healing areas within the body that otherwise wouldn’t get the care. Researchers theorize that this type of autophagy may suppress tumors by cleaning out cancer cells and, therefore, aid in cancer prevention (Antunes, 2018).
