Diet that mimics fasting may also reduce multiple sclerosis symptoms

Evidence is mounting that a diet mimicking the effects of fasting has health benefits beyond weight loss, with a new USC-led study indicating that it may reduce symptoms of multiple sclerosis.Scientists discovered that the diet triggers a death-and-life process for cells that appears critical for the bodyâs repair.âDuring the fasting-mimicking diet, cortisone is produced and that initiates a killing of autoimmune cells,â said Valter Longo, the studyâs lead author and professor who directs the USC Longevity Institute at the Davis School of Gerontology. âThis process also leads to the production of new healthy cells.âThe new study, published in the journal Cell Reports, included mice and human patients who have multiple sclerosis, a neurological disease that affects an estimated 350,000 Americans, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
