One of the greatest advances in healthy longevity research has been discovering the evolutionary process of autophagy. When the body is depleted of energy and/or nutrients, it turns on this ancient protective mechanism called autophagy. The cells of your body switch from using food as an energy source to using junk (aggregated proteins and damaged organelles) in the cell for energy. Clearing out the junk — as well as many other processes such as DNA repair — the release of potent antioxidants has amazing benefits. This process is so important that it garnered Yoshinori Ohsumi, Ph.D., the Nobel Prize in 2016. He discovered many of the mechanisms of autophagy. This truly is the ultimate “digital detox.”
