The fasting trend
While fasting is an old practice, in recent years it has seen a resurgence of interest. It is a practice of depriving yourself of food and even drinks for a defined period of time. Medical practice or lifestyle choice, there are 4 types of fasting: full (only water is allowed), partial (caloric intake around 300 kcal per day), continuous and intermittent. Newcomer: assisted fasting.
What is ProLon ® Assisted Fasting?
ProLon ® assisted fasting is based on the principle of calorie restriction. Concretely, over a period of 5 days, the body perceives a greatly reduced calorie intake. Then placed in a state of restriction, he behaves as if he were fasting. As a result, it triggers metabolic processes of protection and renewal. The assisted fasting offered by ProLon is guaranteed to be without risk to health. Indeed, the brand is based on clinical studies which have shown that the body receives all essential macro and micro nutrients. Thus, the risk of deficiencies is avoided.
The body reacts in two distinct stages. First, it initiates autophagy, a cell cleansing process. Naturally, it then begins to eliminate aging and failing components of cells in order to renew healthy cells. Second, it triggers the ketosis mechanism. This is because the body does not receive enough carbohydrates to produce energy. As a result, it starts converting fat into ketones instead of glucose. Moreover, it is this natural process that the ketogenic diet comes from. Indeed, the latter consists in drastically reducing the daily consumption of carbohydrates.
