SlowBurn Exercise and a Low Carb Diet
Do you want good health, lowered inflammation and protection from autoimmune disorders? Don’t juice or carb up – do just the opposite! Back in 2015, researchers at Yale School of Medicine revealed a compound that appears to inhibit inflammation in our bodies. The substance is known as β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB).
In their study, published in the Feb. 16 online issue of Nature Medicine, the researchers described how the compound β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) directly inhibits NLRP3, which is part of a complex set of proteins called the inflammasome. The inflammasome drives the inflammatory response in several disorders including autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, atherosclerosis, and autoinflammatory disorders.
“BHB is a metabolite produced by the body in response to fasting, high-intensity exercise, caloric restriction, or consumption of the low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet.”
So instead of taking anti-inflammatory meds like Advil, instead consider SlowBurn high intensity strength training and a low carb diet with a touch of intermittent fasting tossed in is a match made in heaven for your health and well-being! It’s the combo we use at all our SlowBurn personal training studios. You should try it too!
