Why Fast?

Water fasting, the practice of abstaining from all or certain foods and beverages for a set period while consuming only water, has gained attention for its potential health benefits. Here are some commonly cited advantages:

1. Autophagy: Fasting triggers autophagy, a process where the body cleans out damaged cells and regenerates new, healthy ones. This is believed to contribute to cellular repair and may have implications for longevity and disease prevention.

2. Weight Loss: Water fasting can lead to weight loss by creating a calorie deficit. When the body doesn't have incoming calories from food, it starts using stored energy, which often results in fat loss.

3. Improved Insulin Sensitivity: Fasting has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, potentially reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. It helps regulate blood sugar levels and enhances the body's response to insulin.

4. Heart Health: Some studies suggest that intermittent fasting, including water fasting, may contribute to heart health by improving blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

5. Brain Health: Fasting may support brain health by promoting the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is associated with cognitive function and the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.

6. Inflammation Reduction: Fasting has been linked to a decrease in inflammation markers in the body. Chronic inflammation is associated with various diseases, and reducing it may contribute to overall health.

7. Cellular Repair: Fasting induces a state of repair at the cellular level. It allows cells to remove waste and repair damaged components, contributing to overall tissue health.

8. Hormone Regulation: Fasting can influence the levels of various hormones, such as insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, which play roles in metabolism, hunger, and satiety.

It's important to note that while water fasting can offer potential benefits, it may not be suitable for everyone. Individuals with certain medical conditions, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and those with a history of eating disorders should consult with a healthcare professional before attempting prolonged water fasting. Additionally, it's crucial to approach fasting with proper planning and care to ensure adequate hydration and nutrient intake.

About Gary Brecka's Water Fast For this fast you will need both PerfectAmino & PerfectAmino Electrolytes as they serve different purposes.

  • The Electrolytes regulate water levels inside the cells, allowing nutrients in and waste out, which is vital during a fast.

  • And PerfectAmino provides the exact ratio of essential amino acids necessary to synthesize new protein for cellular repair, preventing muscle loss during the fast, without the caloric impact that would break the fast and take us out of autophagy.

You can find both PerfectAmino and Electrolytes, as well as H2 Infuse (which can replace a hydrogen water bottle if needed) by clicking the button below. Use Code: ULTIMATE10 at checkout for 10% off your order. Get it soon! Fasting starts next Tuesday.
