The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting for Brain Health


We have a returning guest on the show today, Ed Parks, our expert on brain health! Today he’s back to talk about the benefits of intermittent fasting and how it impacts our brain function and overall longevity.

I’m personally a fan of intermittent fasting and know many others are as well. If you haven’t heard of this, intermittent fasting is an umbrella term for various meal timing schedules. There are a few different ways to intermittent fast which Ed discusses on this episode.

Although many people chose to intermittent fast for weight loss purposes, Ed explains the amazing benefits of intermittent fasting for brain health. During a fasting period there is cellular rejuvenation occuring in our bodies; something that can not happen when we are eating all the time. If you’ve been curious about intermittent fasting, give this episode a listen. Discover the amazing benefits of intermittent fasting for brain health and overall longevity and how you can start incorporating this into your life today.

If you’ve missed the previous episodes with Ed, be sure to go back and give these two conversations a listen:  brain health and the gut-brain connection and how to maintain a healthy brain. 

Ed also owns a company called NeuroReserve. They makes a product called Relevate which is a nutritional supplement that restores vital nutrients for healthy brain aging. I love Relevate and take on a regular basis. If you’re interested in trying it out, you can purchase it here and receive 15% off using my code, DEANNA15

To maintain a healthy brain we need to take action in our own lives!
