11 Weird Things Sugar Does to Your Body

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, April 27, 2016 8:48 PM

Did you know that excessive sugar consumption causes a cascade of metabolic injury to your body? Most people are now ingesting about 20 or more teaspoons/day or 150 pounds of sugar/year. This is insane.

 

Your body wasn't designed to handle the insulin spike that happens very quickly when you eat highly refined processed food stuff loaded with hidden sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and/or artificial sweeteners. Back in the Paleolithic days, your human ancestors ate starches aka complex carbs in the form of tubers, roots, fruits, and veggies.

 

Mother Nature is smart as she developed taste buds to detect the presence of starch. Starch was very important as it was a fuel supply. It released glucose into the bloodstream slowly. And here's the catch. The taste buds detecting the sweet taste of starch covered two-thirds of the tongue.

 

For the hunter-gatherers detecting sweet starch was critical for fuel and it also helped them with food safety. Poisonous plants are never sweet. But you and millions of other people live in a different age where sucrose (table sugar) is digested by enzymes in saliva and raise glucose levels in a few seconds. And the supply is unlimited.

 

Being on a sugar roller coaster not only ages you, but causes chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Sugar affects all your organs, including your brain. You may experience mood swings, brain fog, poor memory, fatigue, anxiety,  headaches, and depression.

 

Health tips: Isn't it time to switch from sickness to zestful-living? Try plant based real whole food and eliminate or greatly reduce your intake of sugar and all its derivatives. Learn to make your own food and avoid highly processed non food stuff. 

 

Grow your own sprouts, eat more dark leafy greens, add some algae, sea veggies to the mix. Eat ripe fruit if you're healthy and eat more veggies, legumes, nuts, seeds, and some whole grains. The more of these types of food you consume, the more your taste buds will crave these plant foods.

Did you know that blueberries and all berries offer protection against cancer, boost your immune system, and guard your liver and brain?  Berries are the healthiest fruits.

 

The dark pigmented colors are the antioxidants so it's important not to peel apples. Antioxidants combat free radicals which lead to inflammation. Berries are second only to herbs and spices for their antioxidant abilities.

 

Blueberries are known to increase memory. Tart cherries help with arthritis/gout and better sleep. Goji berries have high concentrations of melatonin and zeaxanthin (helps with vision loss). Black currants have been shown in a study to improve the symptoms of computer eyestrain. This information comes from Dr Michael Greger, "How Not to Die".

 

Health Tips:  Fresh organic berries or flash frozen berries are your best bet. You can eat the berries as is or make plant based ice cream for a super summery treat. When you make jam most of the anthocyanin pigments are lost.

Did you know that your chronological age has nothing to do with your true age? Yes you can be biologically younger. Science has known for a long time that what you consume and how you live your life aka lifestyle have a direct bearing on how you age.

 

Have you heard of telomeres?  Think of the plastic tip at the end of your shoelaces. When your cells replicate themselves, the tip gets a little shorter. This article explains in detail.

 

From research Dr Dean Ornish did it is known that "just three months on a whole foods plant based diet including exercise can significantly boost teleromase activity". Teleromase is an enzyme found in certain plants and in humans. Read about the follow up study results.

 

Health tips:  No matter how you chew it, plants are the bang for your buck for longevity and healthy aging.  Sprouts are the most nutrient dense land based food while blue green algae (spirulina and chlorella) are the most nutritious in fresh water and sea veggies are the best from the ocean.
