Your health: Intermittent fasting may improve brain health

Posted: Updated:

Actor and former NFL player Terry Crews does intermittent fasting and says its helped him get in the best shape of his life. Growing research suggests it reduces brain inflammation. In scientific studies with mice, it dramatically improves heart health and prevents the symptoms of Alzheimer's, improves cognition and protects nerve cells from dysfunction and degeneration. There are few human studies of fasting but scientists say as humans evolved, we adapted to shortages in food by developing a protective "fasting mode," that promotes cell growth and strengthens organs. Before doing this, talk to your doctor first.
