Video by Dr. Chad Larson

In episode 20 of his video series, Dr. Larson discusses: 

  • The benefits of a 36 hour fast
  • Have dinner the night before, fast all day the next day, then have breakfast the following day
  • There are several benefits to short-term fasting
  • It gives the digestive tract a break
  • It gives the liver a break
  • It gives the organs a chance to catch up on their functions
  • It helps to burn excess body fat around the abdomen
  • Abdominal fat increases the chances of certain chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes
  • It improves metabolism
  • It improves blood sugar balance
  • If you are going to fast for longer than 36 hours, you should be under the guidance of a healthcare professional
  • A 36 hour fast is safe, if you don't have any serious health conditions
  • During a fast, there is an increase in brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)
  • BDNF is a stimulus for neuron development
  • Short term fasting can also be beneficial to help prevent diseases such as Alzheimer's and Dementia
  • Drinking tea is great for fasting
  • A recent study showed that tea drinking can significantly decrease the chance of cognitive decline
  • 3-5 cups of tea per day showed a reduced chance of cognitive decline by 53%
  • 6-10 cups per day showed a reduced chance of cognitive decline by 65%
  • Polyphenols in the tea are responsible for the cognitive benefits
  • One of the way the brain ages is through oxidation
  • To decrease oxidation and aging of the brain, you need antioxidants
  • Polyphenols are loaded with antioxidants
  • Polyphenol nutrients help to block and prevent blocking of the neurons in the brain
  • You might want to consider drinking tea over coffee
