Lower Your Risk of Vascular Disease With the Elimination of Fructose

Say No To Fructose
Unlike most organs, the brain can be eminently damaged if devoid of dextrose for just a few minutes. Nonetheless, in addition to leading to belly fat, a recent report in Men's Fitness confirms the intake of high-fructose sugar has been imputed for numerous health problems, including diabetes and liver disease. Recently, forensic investigators have documented that among the list of daily activities that corn syrup sugar contributes to, over-consumption can make you dumber. At the Clinical and Translational Science Institute in Los Angeles, scientists documented that the intake of too much corn syrup sugar disrupts the glucose activity required for processing thoughts and memories. Some health care specialists at St. Johns Vein Clinic think there probably are reasons why individuals crave ice cream after a separation. Simply put, fructose corn sugar added to today's fast foods, much like candy, might help them forget.
Limiting the consumption of corn syrup solids is likely more effective in controlling the negative impact of syndrome X than the often prescribed management of dietary fat intake. Your physician will also discuss your shot records and update your personal and family medical history. Your father may have metabolic syndrome, but even with a strongly inherited predisposition you can reduce your risks dramatically by pursuing a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids. A routine exam should be a mandate for any trip to the doctor. A lack of vitamin B1 and B12 can typically affect one's cognitive functions.
The doctor can use a variety of examination techniques like glucose readings and testing blood sugar levels. Men and women who have metabolic syndrome may need special meal plans that is low in processed sugars and high in whole grains. Brain function research has suggested that metabolic syndrome is likely related to an increased intake of high-fructose corn syrup in your diet. A yearly doctor's visit is the time to acknowledge all complaints about processed sugars in your diet. If you have conditions or are worried about a particular health issue, call your family doctor.
According to the American Heart Association "There are many, sometimes confusing, terms used in the literature. Simple carbohydrate (sugar) refers to mono- and disaccharides; complex carbohydrate refers to polysaccharides such as starch. Common disaccharides are sucrose (glucose+fructose), found in sugar cane, sugar beets, honey, and corn syrup; lactose (glucose+galactose), found in milk products; and maltose (glucose+glucose), from malt. The most common naturally occurring monosaccharide is fructose (found in fruits and vegetables). The term dextrose is used to refer to glucose. Intrinsic or naturally occurring sugar refers to the sugar that is an integral constituent of whole fruit, vegetable, and milk products; extrinsic or added sugar refers to sucrose or other refined sugars in soft drinks and incorporated into food, fruit drinks, and other beverages." mentioned that "controlling your blood sugar is the best way to slow or prevent these vascular problems. If you do not manage your diabetes or maintain healthy habits, you could develop serious health conditions, including blindness, severe kidney disease, stroke, heart attack, or sores in your feet. Eventually, if you develop dead tissue, which is known as gangrene, it could lead to infection and ultimately to amputation."

  1. I believe it should be eliminating "high fructose corn syrup" and not fructose alone, since fructose are present in fruits and vegetables, and if we avoid fruits and vegetables because of fructose content, then, we may be sending the wrong message because fruits and vegetables have a lot of other essential nutrients we do not want to deprive our body of. I however, really avoid food products that have the following: 1) High fructose corn syrup, which other food labels would only use HFC, they are kind of discrete in labeling their foods, but HFC means it is SOMETHING TO BE AVOIDED, as it is fructose corn syrup.
    2) or simply states corn syrup.

    I so agree in this post, about the evils of corn syrup sugar which sadly is present in almost food products out there, such as ice cream, non-fat frozen yogurt, and even in those energy and some "health" bars, I guess, we all need to read the label very well.

  2. Fantastic info, Betchai, and I so agree with your comment!

  3. thanks for the info Beth, like i just commented on Zen's blog we are big on fruits but we are also big on junks. trying our best to cut down on sugary foods and other junk foods, from once a week to once a month. goodluck to us. hehe! just have to keep reminding ourselves that health is wealth. ;)
