Should You Fast When You Have A Cold

Cold and Flu season is upon us and with it comes sniffles, cough, congestion and endless use of tissues……. Sounds familiar?

Fasting can help combat bacterial infections, decrease inflammatory response and boost your immune system. Not only does fasting help you get better quicker, it also shortens the duration of a cold.

Fasting forces your body to break down the stored fat by converting it into Ketones and uses it as an energy store in the absence of glucose. When this happens, a lot of other chemical reactions occur that are beneficial to our bodies and health, especially if you’ve got a cold. During the fasting period, a particular type of ketone known as beta-hydroxybutyrate or BHB is produced. BHB is a ketone that has substantial effects on boosting the immune system. Your chances of getting better vastly increase. Autophagy is another occurrence that accelerates health. It is simply the breakdown of abnormal cells for the recreation of strong cells. Autophagy is induced during fasting and can destroy unhealthy cells faster.
