Let’s talk about water fasting vs. dry fasting. Water fasting is when a person only consumes liquids for a period of time. When a person does dry fasting, they’re not consuming food or liquids.

One of the biggest benefits of fasting is autophagy. Autophagy is a condition where your body recycles damaged proteins and turns them into new enzymes and structural proteins. Autophagy also helps you get rid of pathogens.

Detoxification is just as important, if not more important, in some cases, as getting plenty of nutrients. One of the big purposes of sleep is to detoxify your cells. Fasting, especially dry fasting, mimics a lot of the benefits of sleep.

It’s important to note that about eight to ten percent of the water you get is produced by your own cells, which also enhances detoxification. But, if you drink a lot of water, your body doesn’t get a chance to produce metabolic water.

Dry fasting is essentially enhanced autophagy. Anything you can do to remove extra waste from the body is a great thing, especially for longevity.

Top benefits of dry fasting:
• It can help remove intracellular toxicity
• It can help strengthen biochemical machines
• It can help improve mitochondrial function
• It’s a strong epigenetic stimulus
• It can mimic some of the benefits of a deep sleep

You may want to test out a dry fast and do it gradually to see how you feel. A good place to start would be not consuming any water during a 16-hour fast. Then, when you eat, drink plenty of liquids.
