Autophagy & Mitophagy


What are Autophagy and Mitophagy?

Autophagy (means self eating) is a biological process and plays a key role in your body's ability to detoxify, repair, and regenerate itself. It reduces inflammation and slows down your aging process. To achieve this the Hart Ketogenic Plan is your perfect choice.

Your cells create membranes that hunt out scraps of dead, diseased, or worn-out cells (including mitochondria this is Mitophagy, nature's way of implementing quality control), gobble them up, stripping them for parts and use the resulting molecules for energy or to make new cell parts. Isn't nature wonderful! This is actually your body's way to recycle. It makes your body a more efficient machine because it gets rid of faulty parts, stop cancerous growths, and stop metabolic dysfunction like obesity and diabetes. It also restores function in aging muscle stem cells.

Autophagy is used as a part of cancer treatment

Once your body enters a state of nutritional ketosis, cancer cells are more susceptible to being removed by your body through autophagy.
