1. Intermittent fasting strengthens the immune system.
Scientists at the University of Southern California have found that the renewal of the immune system occurs due to the rejection of food for several days. During this time, the body used up its stores of ketones, fat, and glucose, and also destroyed white blood cells. They helped to renew the cells of the immune system. It also lowered the hormones that promote aging and the development of tumors. Keep in mind that there are serious contraindications for short-term fasting.
