Hey, guys. Dr. Jockers here. And today we’re talking about eight ways intermittent fasting improves your heart health. And so we know that cardiovascular disease is really the number one killer in Westernized countries right there with cancer. And when we look at really the root cause of heart disease, we know it’s inflammation. In fact, inflammation is at the root of practically all known chronic health conditions. So we think about dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. These are all diseases characterized by chronic inflammation, cardiovascular disease, or heart disease, whether it’s atherosclerosis, arteriosclerosis, or blood pressure issues. These things are all related to chronic inflammation that’s affecting the arterial beds. And you can see in this chart just how much inflammation affects every system of our body. So really the key to being healthy in the 21st century is controlling the inflammatory response. And so we know one thing that really drives inflammation is the hormone insulin and insulin’s job is to come out when our blood sugar is high, it comes out to take the sugar out of the cell or I’m sorry, out of the bloodstream and bring it into the cells. So it’s like a key opening, a locked door on the cell to allow sugar glucose to move into the cell and it’s extremely important for that.

It’s amazing how Dr. Jockers breaks down the connection between intermittent fasting and heart health. The emphasis on inflammation and insulin’s role in cardiovascular diseases is particularly eye-opening. It’s interesting to learn how fasting can not only help in controlling insulin levels but also improve overall heart health by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.

The various fasting methods he suggests, like the crescendo and strong fast, seem like great strategies to gradually incorporate fasting into a lifestyle, especially for those new to it. It’s also reassuring to hear how fasting can be adapted to individual needs, whether it’s weight loss or just general health improvement.

Dr. Jockers’ approach to explaining the science behind fasting in a straightforward and understandable way is really helpful. This video seems like a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their heart health through diet and lifestyle changes. Thanks for sharing these insights, Dr. Jockers!
