The role of Sugar with inflammation and ageing!

We know that there are different types of sugars so lets talk about them first 

Fructose, sugar found in fruit and honey, its a monosaccharide, like glucose, whereas table sugar ( sucrose) is a combination of glucose and fructose, making it a disaccharide (meaning two molecules linked together)

High fructose corn syrup (the ones found in soft drink and processed foods) is a combination of molecules and dominated by fructose. 

When we eat whole fruits, which contain fruit sugar, the water and the fiber will dilate the blood sugar affect that can occur. 

When we combine fructose and glucose, the fructose might not do much to our blood sugar right away, but the glucose stimulates insulin secretion and alerting fat cells to create MORE storage. 

The more sugars we eat, the more we tell our bodies to transfer them to fat. 

Glycation is when sugar molecules bond to proteins, fats and amino acids.  Advanced glycation end products AGEs, is what causes premature aging of the skin, sogginess and discoloured skin.

If we have a high carb diet, this will speed up glycation.
