Scientists may have discovered the “keto” longevity.
Researchers at Stanford University have found that the ketogenic, or keto, diet makes muscle stem cells better able to handle stress. Similar effects have been found with a fasting diet. The findings were published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
“As we age, we experience slower and less complete healing of our tissues,” Dr. Thomas Rando, a neurology professor at Stanford, told the university. “We wanted to understand what controls that regenerative ability and how fasting impacts this process. We found that fasting induces resilience in muscle stem cells so that they survive during deprivation and are available to repair muscle when nutrients are again available.”
