In animal models, we see the following potential benefits:

  • Extend lifespan, improve health
  • better insulin control, reduced nerve cell injury
  • reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer
  • Improved immune system

In various human studies, we see the following potential benefits

  • asthma, inflammatory markers
  • reduce heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol, triglyceride
  • alzheimers, parkinsons
  • reduce inflammatory markers
  • risk of diabetes (in at risk folks)
  • increase human growth hormone

More research is needed

  • immune system, digestive tract, psychologic

And finally, I will add that very few of these studies are robust, randomized clinical trials. While all this preliminary research is promising and interesting, much more research is needed to identify any true benefits and long term effects of various fasting methods.
