Intermittent fasting is when you eat during a specific period of time, and you fast the rest of the time.
An often-overlooked benefit is the positive effect that Intermittent Fasting can have on Gut Health. Researchers have found that beyond its benefits on your body and brain, Intermittent Fasting can favorably influence the balance of beneficial gut flora that protects against metabolic syndrome, a cluster of issues that include high blood, insulin resistance and high levels of visceral fat.
Fasting gives your overworked gut a break from energy-intensive tasks like digesting and assimilating food. It has been shown to reduces something called postprandial endotoxemia, which has been found to increase the risk for obesity and insulin resistance. And potentially, it can improve the composition of your friendly gut flora.
You want to have good gut flora- it is now being linked to all areas of the body's health including immunity, nervous system, heart health, lymphatic system, and more.
Studies show that the balance of bacteria in the gut microbiome may affect your emotions and the way your brain processes information from your senses, like sights, sounds, flavors, or textures. Scientists suspect that changes in that balance may play a role in diseases like autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, and depression, as well as chronic pain.
Have you tried Intermittent Fasting yet? There are significant benefits when paired with proper nutrition, however, there is a right and a wrong way for doing it.
