that short-term fasting may actually have a positive impact on the microbiota. A study conducted on healthy adults found that a 24-hour fast led to an increase in the abundance of certain beneficial bacteria.
Overall, the impact of fasting on the microbiota appears to depend on several factors, such as the duration of the fast, the frequency of fasting, and the individual’s overall health.
When it comes to longevity, fasting has been shown to have many potential benefits. It has been linked to a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Fasting has also been shown to increase lifespan in animals.
