#3 - Beta Cell Batteries, Fasting, and Ketosis The Meta Health Podcast

    • Nutrition

Beta cells are the insulin-producing cells in our pancreas and their durability is a key factor in promoting longevity and optimal health.  In this episode I use the battery analogy to explain how beta cells work and what actions you can take to preserve your beta cell battery life which helps prevent/reverse diabetes and other chronic health conditions.  I also discuss ways in which you can estimate your beta cell battery life and what role certain conditions have on beta cell life.
