The Sheekey Science Show's Youtube image on fasting
January 21, 2021
n this video, the Sheekey Science Show discusses the different types of fasting (periodic and intermittent) and how they relate to aging, including their beneficial effects on metabolism and stem cells, along with the concept of refeeding. Supplements that serve as caloric restriction mimetics, which replicate some of the effects of fasting, are also explored.
Time-restricted fasting

Intermittent fasting is a common topic in the longevity community, and a new study suggests that there could be some benefits from adopting this lifestyle. A new study published in the Journal of Proteomics builds on previous studies and suggests that intermittent fasting has a host of benefits in humans, not just mice. This study...

A recent study published in Cell Stem Cell shows that fasting and metformin are effective in a mouse model of demyelination, which is caused in humans by such disorders as multiple sclerosis. Myelin, demyelination, and remyelination Myelin, a substance rich in beneficial proteins and fats, is an insulator and protector of nerve cells and helps...

Today, we want to discuss this review published in the journal Science, as it provides a whistle-stop tour of caloric restriction, intermittent fasting, and time-restricted feeding. There is a considerable amount of data supporting the effects of caloric restriction and similar dietary approaches on both health and lifespan in multiple species. In general, the more...

Stem cells supply the specialized cells that make up our tissues and organs; every time existing cells are lost for whatever reason, stem cells that can differentiate into that particular type of cell jump into action to compensate for the loss. However, this ability declines over time as aging progresses; indeed, stem cell exhaustion is...
