Consider using digestive enzymes after you break our fast to make it easier for your body to break down your fast-breaking meal. A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition confirmed that oral proteolytic enzymes significantly improve the absorption of protein.
Eat slowly. In a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, they showed that chewing your food more thoroughly significantly aids digestion and results in better absorption of nutrients.
Break your fast with protein to restore the activity of your mitochondrial complexes
Coenzyme Q10 is an electron acceptor in the electron transport chain. In a study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, it was reported that Coenzyme Q10 increases the activity of mitochondrial complexes I and II.
Supplement with Coenzyme Q10 to quickly restore the optimal function of your mitochondria
Use vitamins B when breaking your fast. Vitamin B1 and B6 are necessary for the synthesis of enzymes needed for the metabolism of protein and it will help your gastrointestinal tract to process your food quicker. Vitamin B3 will help you to produce more electron carriers which are essential for the production of ATP. Vitamin Bs have very good potential to help you fight the fatigue connected with breaking a fast.
Add turmeric to the meal you break the fast with to fight the spike in inflammation
Drink green tea before and after fast to fight the inflammation caused by the spike of NLRP3. You will also improve the integrity of the intestinal barrier and prevent inflammation caused by foreign particles like LPS.
Use pepper for your fast-breaking meal as it contains piperine. In a study published in Planta Medica, it increases the bioavailability of turmeric by 2000%. In a study published in The Journal of Nutrition, it also increased the bioavailability of EGCG.
Supplement with phosphorus when breaking a fast or include food high in phosphorus like chicken or turkey
Use magnesium supp for optimal function of mitochondrial enzymes
Supplement with lipoic acid to boost your mitochondria
Involve propolis in your fast-breaking regime to reduce inflammation, increase mineral intake and metabolism and mitochondrial activity
Propolis or bee glue is a bee product which is used to seal the hive and protect it from bacteria.
In a study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, propolis was reported to inhibit the NLRP3
Furthermore, as stated in a study published in Oxidative medicine and cellular longevity, propolis also contains previously mentioned vitamins B1 and B6 and magnesium and many others nutrients involving vitamin C, E, calcium, potassium, sodium, zinc, manganese
