Hello everyone! In today’s article, we’ll be talking the truth about metabolic syndrome!
01_ What Is Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)?
The myth of metabolic syndrome, also call Syndrome X, and that’s a combination of several conditions’ central abdominal fat blood pressure glucose levels are starting to go up we have high triglycerides with insulin resistance for sure and also we have a higher levels of insulin in the blood it’s called hyper insulinemia an association with an increased amount of uric acid we automatically associate metabolic syndrome with something really bad it’s a disease that you get and doctors are going to put you a lot of medications there’s going to be a lot of testing and it’s very complex and no one really knows what causes it.
But, today, I’m going to give you a completely new viewpoint on metabolic syndrome as it relates to a type of sugar called fructose now what I believe metabolic syndrome really is it’s a protective mechanism now if we look at our history as a hunter-gatherer Down The evolutionary Trail humans did eat fruit and they did eat honey not very often which has a really good amount of fructose okay so I want to just talk about fructose for a second it’s a unique type of sugar and when you consume glucose there’s receptors all over your body that can metabolize glucose but fructose is different the liver is really the only place where your body can metabolize fructose.
