Publisher's Summary

Do you know how your metabolism work for real? Have you ever heard about metabolic autophagy? Keep reading to find out more!

Discovered over 50 years ago, autophagy is a double-edged blade. On one hand, it regulates cellular energy sources by “cannibalization” of its own cellular components, feeding on proteins and other unused cytoplasmic factors. On the other, it is a recycling process that removes dangerous waste from the cytoplasm, keeping the cell clean and healthy.

The global prevalence of metabolic disorders is an immediate threat to human health. Genetic features, environmental aspects, and lifestyle changes are the major risk factors determining metabolic dysfunction in the body.

Autophagy is a housekeeping, stress-induced lysosomal degradation pathway which recycles macromolecules and metabolites for new protein synthesis and energy production and regulates cellular homeostasis by clearance of damaged protein or organelles. To find out everything about it, you will need a professional guide like this! 

Here is what you will find inside:

  •  What is metabolic autophagy and how does it work?  
  •  What is the connection between the autophagy and oxidation  
  •  How to have an intermittent fasting schedule?
  •  What is the connection between autophagy and metabolism? 
  • And much more!  

Autophagy is, indeed, an important physiological process. However, what seems like the answer in certain circumstances can be the problem in others. But if you want to find out more about the subject, the only thing you have to do is to scroll up and press the "buy now" button!

Very interested in the subject matter but couldn't listen to this book past the 10 minute point.
Sorry dude but the narrating is dreadful - has all the warmth and intonation of 80s text-to-speech software :/
