Can fasting improve your brain health?

It’s a common misconception to associate fasting only to weight loss. Fasting can have incredible benefits on the body and your physical health, but it also does some amazing things to your brain.

In addition to generating energy, fasting can help balance hormones and create harmony in a woman’s monthly cycle.
