9 – Fast For A Day






Fasting activates your brain by boosting neuronal autophagy, which is the process by which cells recycle waste material and repair themselves. The brain depends highly on neuronal autophagy in fact, a study revealed that when the process was interrupted, neurodegeneration was induced. Bottom line, the brain cannot  develop nor function as it should without neuronal autophagy, and fasting for a short period helps boost the process.
