What Is Water Fasting?
Water fasting, aka water cleanse, is a type of fasting in which you consume only water for a set period of time. With water fasting, you take in zero calories.
In the long-term, it’s impossible to live on water alone. Your body can’t function without calories and nutrients; they’re the batteries and building blocks of life. A properly planned, short-term water fast helps reset certain biological processes and reinvigorates your health.
The Health Benefits of Water Fasting
Weight Loss - While it may seem obvious that not eating will lead to less body fat, When you refrain from eating calories, your body is forced to burn fat cells for energy.
Slows Aging - Animal studies have found that intermittent fasting can extend lifespan by up to 80% over control groups. In humans, fasting has been found to reduce oxidative damage and inflammation.

Improved Cell Recycling - Autophagy is your body’s normal, natural process for recycling unnecessary or dysfunctional components. Water fasting forces your system into an autophagic state. With the severely reduced caloric intake, your body is forced to be more selective in which cells it protects.
Boost the Immune System - A 2014 study found that water fasting for just three days could regenerate the immune system. Researchers found that fasting “flips a regenerative switch” and prompts stem cells to regenerate new white blood cells.
Improve Brain Function - When water fasting, the body switches from burning glucose to burning fat. Instead of glucose, the brain uses ketones for fuel. Ketones are largely considered more efficient fuel for the brain. Water fasting increases mental clarity, focus and concentration.
When water fasting, planning is important. If you’ve never done a water fast before, you shouldn’t start a 30-day water fast today. There is a right way to do any water fast. Water fasting can be done safely, but it can also cause harm if done incorrectly. I recommend you research doing water fasting, as well as consulting with your trusted health care provider before performing any fast.
