The linked video is title can exercise induce autophagy, here are my notes:

  • fasting is the preferred method for inducing autophagy
  • certain foods can help as well
  • exercise can also make autophagy more effective
  • intermittent fasting can trigger it
  • most studies have been on lab mice, but the same techniques seem to work with humans as well
  • exercise is associated with reductions in many
  • exercise reduces glycogen that is stored in the liver and the muscles
  • studies with sprints and steady state aerobic exercise showed the markers for autophagy



The advantages of autophagy include:

  • removing toxic proteins from the cells that are associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimers
  • recycling proteins
  • provide energy
  • it prompts regeneration in healthy cells
  • may slow or reverse cancer
  • and it may provide new stem cells, even in the brain



Lets figure it out!  The Fasting Motivation podcast is not medical advice.
