Finished Eleventh Cycle of Weekend Fasting with AMPK Tea

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Last weekend I revisited an article on Life Extension site on AMPK activator. AMPK is an enzyme that we all have but declines with age. Among other things, the enzyme tells the body to burn belly fat. Life Extension sells this as a supplement consisting of Gynostemma pentaphyllum (Jiaogulan) and Hesperidin (from citrus). Since I have Jiaogulan in tea form, I made Hesperidin from lemon peels. I squeezed the lemons, then cut the peels and dried them in the dehydrator. With the two ingredients, I have my own AMPK tea. Does it work? It's too early to tell but the tea is delicious. So I'll be making and drinking AMPK tea from now on during my fast and any day for that matter. I'll include pictures the next time I have a chance.
