Fasting boosts “longevity gene” to improve long-term memory in mice

A new study has found that intermittent fasting can boost long-term memory retention in mice

Fasting diets in their many forms have gained serious popularity as effective ways to lose weight, but researchers studying the physiological underpinnings continue to show how they might do much more than that. Scientists at King’s College London have used experiments in mice to demonstrate how fasting can also improve long-term memory and tackle age-related cognitive impairment, by boosting expression of what’s known as the “longevity gene.”
