Your first clinic is your kitchen. Your first medicine is food. Your first doctor is your own self-awareness. Your first prescription is good habits! --Jennifer Tan Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to work. --Albert Schweitzer, M.D.
Fructuse Vs Glucose Part of what makes fructose so unhealthy is that it is metabolized by your liver to fat in far more rapidly than any other sugar. This is the type of fat that collects around your organs and in your abdominal region and is associated with a greater risk of heart disease. After eating fructose, 100 percent of the metabolic burden rests on your liver. With glucose, your liver has to break down only 20 percent. Creates a long list of waste products and toxins, including a large amount of uric acid, which drives up blood pressure and causes gout. Every cell in your body, including your brain, utilizes glucose. Therefore, much of it is "burned up" immediately after you consume it. By contrast, fructose is turned into free fatty acids (FFAs), VLDL (the damaging form of cholesterol), and triglycerides, which get stored as fat. The fatty acids created during fructose metabolism accumulate as fat droplets in your liver and skeletal muscle tissues, causing insulin resistance and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). 6 Insulin resistance progresses to metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. 6. When you eat 120 calories of glucose, less than one calorie is stored as fat. 120 calories of fructose results in 40 calories being stored as fat. Glucose suppresses your hunger hormone ghrelin and stimulates leptin, which suppresses your appetite. Fructose has no effect on ghrelin and interferes with your brain's communication with leptin, resulting in overeating.
