More specifically, you want help with How Intermittent Fasting Affects Your Heart (Cardiovascular System)?

let’s talk about the influence of intermittent fasting over the cardiovascular system there are so many benefits from intermittent fasting but the benefit to the heart is a major major benefit so it all starts with lowering insulin okay so when you fast you decrease insulin and insulin controls what type of fuel that the body’s going to run on what type of fuel that the heart will run on and it just so happens that fatty acids from fat cells are the main source of fuel to the heart and your heart prefers a type of ketone acetoacetate to glucose so this is just one of the three types of ketones the problem is when you’re running your body on glucose you don’t have as much oxygen and you’re getting a lot more waste in co2 so fasting switches your body from glucose to ketones but when you eat it’s inverted you go from ketosis to glucose and the other interesting thing about ketones is that they have the ability to feed the heart if the heart is in a damaged state so if you have any type of cardiovascular disease your heart will benefit greatly from fasting and providing ketones with a low-carb diet also you’ll see improvement we have atherosclerosis your arteries will become less stiff your blood pressure can come down and your improving insulin resistance which automatically will increase your ability to absorb electrolytes so you’ll have more electrolyte function and you’ll have less problems with the rhythm of the heart like you’ll have less palpitations and less problems with things like atrial fibrillation because the pacemaker of the heart which controls a rhythm needs the electrolytes and when you have insulin resistance you’re not going to be able to absorb the quantity of electrolytes now one little point about the liver when you’re doing fasting you are depleting the storage of glucose it’s called glycogen and if your body needs glucose it has the ability to make glucose in the liver it’s called gluconeogenesis this means new making new glucose from ketones from other things from fat like glycerol so when your body needs glucose and it makes it it’s not dangerous but when you get clothes from the diet that’s when it becomes dangerous not only does it create massive oxidation with the inside of the arteries but it triggers insulin and it stops this process from happening it doesn’t allow you to release ketones and fatty acids as much and your body just becomes dependent on glucose so and if the glucose that increased the risk for damage within the artery lining the endothelial layer of the inside of the arteries and when it’s damaged it attracts certain types of cholesterol to heal it and calcium and it forms plaquing and then that can break off and cause a stroke or clog the artery directly alright guys there you have it but if intermittent fasting is something that interests you check out these additional videos on this page

In this video, we’re going to talk about intermittent fasting and how fasting affects the heart. 
It all starts with lowering insulin. When you fast, you lower insulin. Insulin controls what type of fuel your body is going to run on. 
Fatty acids from fat cells are the main source of fuel to the heart. Your heart actually prefers a type of ketone called acetoacetate. 
Fasting switches your body from glucose to ketones. But, when you eat, you go from ketosis to glucose. Ketones also have the ability to feed the heart if the heart is in a damaged state. So, if you have any type of cardiovascular disease, you may benefit from intermittent fasting and providing your body with ketones through a low-carb diet. 
More benefits of intermittent fasting for the heart:
• Improvement with atherosclerosis 
• Less stiffness in the arteries 
• Lower blood pressure 
• Improved insulin resistance which will improve your ability to absorb electrolytes
