Biology: autophagy

Self-tutoring about biological processes: the tutor mentions autophagy.

Autophagy is a process in which the body consumes its non-functioning cells, re-allocating their components to healthy ones. It may also encourage cells to give up garbage they are holding onto. It’s essentially a “spring cleaning” idea in which the body gathers – and devours – worn-out or abandoned materials in order to recycle them.

Autophagy is a natural, beneficial process. It’s believed that keto dieting as well as intermittent fasting can trigger it.
