Short diet beneficial for the brain and the entire nervous system, because it let her calm down
Small hunger occasionally useful for the human brain. This was stated by the American scientists, who studied at the cellular level, the brain’s response to short periods of abstinence from food.
The results showed that fasting is helpful for the nervous system. According to the researchers, due to the lack of nutrients the body reduces the activity of neurotransmitters, which transmit the impulse from the nerve cells.
Studies were conducted on the larvae of fruit flies. First, scientists have limited the ingress of protein into the body of flies, and then is deprived of their food for some time, and began to observe the changes of biochemical and electrophysiological functions of the body.
It turned out that hunger is completely suppressed synaptic activity of nerve cells for three hours and kept the energy of the nervous system. Usually a failure in the transmission of nerve signals affect the body, which can even cause well-known diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s or epilepsy.
Lack of nutrients is a threat to stable functioning of the nervous system, so the body launches an emergency function, which disables it. The results showed that a short diet is good for brain and the entire nervous system, because it let her calm down.
