High Fructose Corn Syrup
Why You Should Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup
Yet, most food products are sweetened more with HFCS than is sweetened with sugar.
The process for making this sugar substitute is a complicated one that combines cornstarch with various enzymes, which then create glucose and fructose. High Fructose Corn Syrup is less expensive to produce than to use sugar in products.
Besides overloading our bodies with empty calories, HFCS also limits Leptin secretion in the digestive system. Leptin is a hormone that signals the brain when you are full.
Therefore, if your brain never gets the message that you are full, you are likely to over-eat and ingest more calories that lead to weight gain.
In addition, this manufactured sweetener increases the production of Ghrelin. Ghrelin is secreted by the stomach and increases your appetite.
Ghrelin sends signals to the brain to indicate that its time to eat and interferes with your body's natural appetite control system. Therefore, HFCS puts your appetite into “hyper-overdrive.”
Our bodies were not designed to digest and process high fructose corn syrup. As more studies are done, there is mounting evidence that it harms our bodies on many levels and is not safe for human consumption.
The majority of nutritionists blame high fructose corn syrup consumption as a major culprit in the nation's obesity crisis.
During that same period, there was a dramatic increase in people who were becoming obese. There was also a huge rise in the amount of people with diabetics.
Try this experiment for seven days: Avoid consuming anything that contains high fructose corn syrup. You will notice after just one week that your appetite will dramatically decrease.
Continue this experiment for a month and you will notice that you have lost weight and feel healthier. Then, continue this experiment for life and you’ll have a longer and healthier life.
