Autophagy is a fundamental process that occurs in all cells. It is responsible for the degradation and recycling of cellular components, such as proteins and organelles.
This process is important for maintaining cellular homeostasis and preventing the accumulation of damaged or unnecessary cell parts.
Autophagy has been linked to a number of health benefits, including cancer prevention, neuroprotection, and longevity.
Additionally, autophagy has been implicated in the development of some diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
