Periodic fasting stem cell regenerates and reverses aging and cancer

  • Fasting significantly low number of white blood cells in the blood. [/ mks_highlight]

Periodic fasting for two or three days contributes to the regeneration of stem cells in the blood and the restoration of the immune system, which counteracts the effects of chemotherapy and aging, according to an article published in the journal Cell Stem Cell. Spearheaded the study Italian Valter Longo, a Professor of Gerontology and biological sciences at the University of Southern California (USA). The researcher explains that "when one fasts, the system is saving energy. "And one of the things you can do to save energy is to recycle many of the immune cells that do not need, especially those who may be damaged".

The temporary restriction of nutrition can increase resistance to stress factors [/ mks_pullquote] chemotherapy given to patients with cancer can save their lives, but also causes many side effects, including the loss of cells in the immune system. It is estimated that more than 20% of cancer-related deaths are accelerated, or even caused, by the toxic effects of chemotherapy, rather than from the same cancer. So doctors limit chemical therapy at the level tolerated by patients, but that reduces the effectiveness of the treatment. But even in the absence of chemotherapy, normal aging impoverishes the immune system and causes deficiencies with a higher risk of developing leukemia and a variety of diseases. There is currently no medical interventions that temper the effects chemotherapy has on the immune system or to prevent cellular dysfunction in the immune system that accompanies aging. Previous studies of Longo and colleagues had shown that a temporary restriction of nutrition could increase resistance of the stem cells to certain stress factors and the late work was devoted to check if fasting could protect cells from the immune system.
Break down the white blood cells is like robbing a plane load excess [/ mks_pullquote] both in laboratory mice and the first phase of clinical testing with humans, periods of fasting – periods of two to four days without meals, in the course of six months – significantly lowered the number of white blood cells in the blood. "What we started to notice, both in animals and in humans, was that it came down to the number of white blood cells during prolonged fasting," says Longo. "Then when it gets to eat, the blood cells are recovered". Prolonged fasting forces the body to consume its reserves of fat, glucose, ketones, but it also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells in the blood, a process that Longo compared to remove excess of load on a plane. In addition it reduces the PKA enzyme which, according to Longo, is the key gene that should turn off to move the stem cells in regenerative mode". Source
