Fasting to delay aging

In this video I discuss different types of fasting diets (both periodic and intermittent) and the underlying molecular mechanisms and why they have potential to delay aging and aging-related diseases. In particular we will address the importance of refeeding, which is more intense in periodic fasting (and fast mimicking diets [FMD]) due to the more severe fasting length, and activation of stem cells for regeneration & rejuvenation of tissues. We will also discuss the pros and concerns for fasting and how fasting overlaps or doesn’t overlap with anti-aging supplements.
