Evidence suggests that time restricted eating can help promote growth of stem cells which are integral in order to regenerate or repair diseased tissue and organs.
It also helps to stimulate cellular autophagy which is the process by which cells disassemble unnecessary or dysfunctional components and allows the orderly degradation and recycling of cellular components.
Ben Greenfield, who holds a master's degree in exercise science and biomechanics, and ISSN Spots Nutrition Certification, discusses the benefits in even more in this video below.
There are lots of questions surrounding fasting and how drinking tea and coffee affects your fast. Rhonda Patrick talks more about this here. She also talks in much more detail about other health benefits including the mending and replenishing of cells.
