Autophagy expert: Dr. Guido Kroemer's personal take on fasting, eating and other lifestyle habits

Parent Episode: Dr. Guido Kroemer on Autophagy, Caloric Restriction Mimetics, Fasting & Protein Acetylation

Several lifestyle behaviors have been shown to induce autophagy, including exercise, fasting, and dietary intake of so-called caloric restriction mimetics – compounds that “trick” cells into inducing autophagy even in the setting of sufficient nutrient levels. Examples of caloric restriction mimetics include resveratrol, which is found in red wine, and spermidine, which is found in cheese. In this clip, Dr. Guido Kroemer describes the autophagy-inducing behaviors he practices as part of his healthy lifestyle.
