Results showed that a fasting-mimicking diet caused a reduction in intestinal inflammation and an increase in intestinal stem cells in part by promoting the expansion of beneficial gut microbiota.
Not only has a fasting mimicking diet been shown to stimulate intestinal stem cells, but has also proven to stimulate stem cells system wide. What does this mean for you? Well, things become possible that were previously thouhgt impossible. Things like regeneration of pancreas cells and a reversal of type 1 diabetes. "In a study on mice and another study on human pancreatic cells, researchers discover that a scientifically designed fasting diet can trigger the generation of new pancreatic cells to replace dysfunctional ones and stabilize blood glucose."
