Jump Start Autophagy

Jump Start Autophagy

By Melissa Mayer

Hack your cells for a healthier life.


As our bodies age, our cells break down, sustain damage, and can start to malfunction. To stay healthy, your body undergoes a natural cell detox that clears out the defective cells and makes room for new, healthy ones—a process known as autophagy. When autophagy is working properly and efficiently, it can aid in healing all kinds of problems, from inflammation, skin issues, and flagging metabolism to autoimmune disorders, premature aging, and more.


Luckily, you can kick-start this natural healing process through a series of easy-to-master diet and lifestyle changes. Jump Start Autophagy is a research-packed, user-friendly guide that will teach you everything you need to know to hack your cells to live a longer, healthier life. You’ll learn all about:


  • The importance of autophagy to your health
  • How autophagy can slow the effects of aging
  • The power of cell recycling to heal your body
  • Easy techniques to trigger cell rejuvenation

Melissa Mayer is a science writer, former science teacher, and crisis counselor. She took her first cell biology class at Trinity University on a bet. In a fold-up desk surrounded by pre-med students who had no doubt taken the prerequisites, she unexpectedly fell hard and fast for biology – and discovered a knack for writing about science. After a decade in the classroom, Melissa now covers the biotech and biomedical spaces as well as the intersection of science and social issues for readers ranging from middle school students to industry professionals. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her wife, kids, and way too many animals.
