High Fructose Corn Syrup—most of us are aware by now that we should avoid this when we are reading our grocery store labels. Lately, I have been shocked at how many proclaimed “healthy” products actually contain it. I thought I would share just a few more health risks associated with regular consumption of these products.
I would like to share a brief excerpt from my favorite book “Bring Back Vitality” by Bea White and Lori Petrucciani ND
Health Concerns if HFCS
1/3 of products that contain HFCS also contain mercury
HFCS is 45 % glucose which is more quickly absorbed but the body than sugar, causing a blood sugar spike. This can lead to insulin resistance and diabetes
Weigh gain and obesity: A 2010 Princeton University study found that high fructose corn syrup caused significantly more weight gain than regular sugar
Fat cell accumulation
High Blood Pressure
High lipid cholesterol
Type 2 Diabetes
This excerpt is from page 160 of this fabulous guide-book Bring Back Vitality —which is available for purchase on the store page of this WEBSITE
