Fasting Triggers Stem Cells and Boosts the Immune System
by Tony Isaacs
(Silver Bulletin E-Magazine) Fasting has long been popular for the things it helps us eliminate, mainly weight and toxins. Now, exciting new research has found that what fasting adds may be even more important because it induces the body to create new stem cells and regenerate our vital immune system that is our first line of defense against disease and illness.
In what promises to be one of the most important medical discoveries of our time, researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles have found that fasting (food deprivation) for 2 – 4 days in both humans and mice resulted in the creation of new stem cells and a renewed immune system. The implications for this discovery are huge: increased longevity and overall health as well as use against specific conditions such as cancer and other diseases – and might even help brain cell regeneration to help combat dementia and brain trauma.
