What’s most important for a good health is a strong immune system. It will fight all bacteria off and won’t let you get any disease. But with the modern way of life and the non-organic food we eat, our immune systems are weakening with time.
Well, a group of scientist from The University of Southern Carolina did a research about how to improve and regenerate our immune system and found that fasting is the answer. Not only will you shed a few pounds but you will strengthen your immune system and improve your overall health with as little as eight days of fasting.
Fasting two to four days at a time every six months causes stem cells to awake from their normal sleeping state and to start regenerating themselves, the scientists said. The research also showed that the fasting destroyed damaged cells, and caused new cells to be born, this means a renewed immune system.
And after the fast has finished, your body will start to generate new blood cells when the normal nutrients start flowing back.
“If you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.” Longo said in a university press release.
The clinical trials are not yet finished, but the research is promising and they are coming out with some amazing facts about the body’s immunity.
