The Most Important Benefit of Autophagy: Will Surprise You
New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Most Important Benefit of Autophagy: Will Surprise You?
let’s talk about the most important
benefit of autophagy and this is gonna surprise you now if you’re not familiar
with the autophagy is a condition where your body is recycling damaged or
old and not needed proteins in the body I’m not talking just about hair and
muscle I’m talking about those little enzyme protein machines that do the work
of the body those are the things that make body tissue and they’re at the
cellular level when those are damaged autophagy is a system to clean those out
of the body and recycle them okay so autophagy decreases the risk of chronic
disease at autophagy will help recycle protein as a survival mechanism for
example one of the triggers for autophagy is fasting so that would be kind of a
similar thing to starvation so the body kicks in this mechanism to help become
more efficient so as to survive longer so it’ll take the protein it doesn’t
need recycle it into new tissue and even use it as fuel also the autophagy can help
reduce pathogens in the body and it protects the neurons as a survival
mechanism the heart cells and it gets rid of what’s called advanced glycation
end-products which basically means like sticky proteins that clog things up as
well as plaquing in the brain so it cleans up all this damaged protein in
the cells that’s what autophagy is but the most important function of autophagy
is anti-cancer so let me explain this now the difference between a normal cell
and a cancer cell has to do with this one thing and that has to do with this
in a normal cell you have respiration in the mitochondria what does that mean
well fuel is converted through a machine to make energy currency of the bodies
called ATP so you fuel like glucose that uses oxygen to
then be burned and that’s the energy currency of the body so in a normal cell
you have something called mitochondrial respiration the mitochondria is the
energy Factory and respiration has to do with breathing or oxygen okay so a
normal cell needs oxygen to generate fuel now in a cancer cell there’s damage
to this respiratory mechanism so this motor with a carburetor that uses oxygen
is broken okay there’s irreversible damage so what
happens when you damage that system as a survival mechanism this cell starts to
activate an ancient pathway that is able to ferment glucose which basically is a
way of breaking it down differently without the use of oxygen
now whether there’s oxygen or not that has nothing to do with it glucose
fermentation doesn’t necessarily need oxygen to make its energy so that is the
difference between a cancer cell and a normal cell normal cells use oxygen in
the respiratory center this is a fancy name for it right here and cancer cells
basically ferment glucose without oxygen one of the ways that they test for
cancer is through a PET scan and a PET scan
they are measuring extreme glucose consumption cancer cells are extremely
hungry for glucose they hog glucose more than normal cells and sometimes you will
starve than normal cells now just by knowing that simple fact right there why
would anyone want to consume a lot of glucose or sugar if they have cancer now
the other question asked is why is there damage in this part of the mitochondria
well my theory is that it has something to do with the DNA that gets damaged
because what’s unique about the mitochondria is that the mitochondria
has its own DNA hey it’s called mitochondria DNA versus
the DNA in the nucleus of the cell which is highly protective the DNA and the
mitochondria are much more prone to mutation or alteration because they’re
not as protected now the mitochondria can use the DNA from the nucleus of the
cell but it also has its own DNA and I think that’s really why it becomes
damaged because it’s simply not protected you cannot get cancer in your
body unless there’s damage to this respiratory part of the mitochondria
what does all this mean it means that autophagy has the ability to clean up this
damage in you mitochondria because these are protein machines these are enzymes
the protein damage in the mitochondria that causes the cells to shift can be
cleaned up by autophagy so that makes this benefit anti-cancer the most
important benefit of autophagy now there are two videos you need to watch now you
need to know all the things that can stimulate autophagy one being intermittent
fasting but there’s another video that I will put on the screen and also down
below that is on cancer in my interview with Professor Thomas Seyfried you have to
check that out

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
You really need to know about this important benefit of autophagy. Check this out.
Autophagy and Intermittent Fasting:
Dr. Berg Interviews Professor Thomas Seyfried on Cancer:
0:07 What is autophagy?
0:40 Autophagy benefits
1:37 The most important benefit of autophagy
3:48 Cancer cells love glucose
4:08 Why is there damage to the mitochondria?
5:03 Can autophagy clean up the damage?
Today we’re going to talk about the most important benefit of autophagy.
What is autophagy?
Autophagy is a condition where your body is recycling old and damaged proteins in the body. I’m not talking just about hair and muscle. I’m talking about those little enzyme protein machines that do the work of the body. They’re at the cellular level, and they make body tissue.
Benefits of autophagy:
• It decreases the risk of disease
• It will help recycle protein as a survival mechanism
• It can help reduce pathogens in the body
• It protects neurons and heart cells
• It gets rid of advanced glycated end products and amyloid plaquing
**The most important benefit of autophagy is anti-cancer.
The difference between a normal cell and a cancer cell has to do with this one thing.
A normal cell has something called mitochondrial respiration.
A cancer cell has damage to this respiratory mechanism. When you damage this system, the cell starts to activate an ancient pathway that’s capable of fermenting glucose without the use of oxygen.
Cancer cells are hungry for glucose. Why would anyone want to consume a lot of sugar or glucose if they have cancer?
But why is there damage to the respiratory mechanism in the mitochondria? My theory is that it has something to do with the DNA that gets damaged. I believe it gets damaged because it’s simply not protected. Autophagy may have the ability to clean up this damage in the mitochondria.
