Another health benefit from intermittent fasting is studies that show this lifestyle change can help fight inflammation dramatically. When your body experiences reduced inflammation and a reduction in blood sugar levels then these improved metabolic features actually improve the health of your brain.

While the studies have currently only happened on rats so far, there are some surprising correlations between intermittent fasting and the delay of the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
