Most people think that sugar consumption and Alzheimer’s disease are two unrelated health issues. However, according to various studies, consuming too much sugar can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Excess sugar and Alzheimer’s
You need to be extremely careful when it comes to limiting your sugar intake, especially since most food companies try to add sugar to almost all kinds of food products. On the other hand, Alzheimer’s rates are also on the rise, along with obesity and the underlying metabolic syndrome.

While this could be nothing more than a coincidence, research implies that there might be a link between a diet high in sugar and Alzheimer’s. Since the condition is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., this matter should be thoroughly investigated.

Dr. Perlmutter, the author of the best-selling book “Grain Brain,” warned that the standard Western diet is linked to various neurological issues. Meanwhile, Dr. Emily Deans from Harvard University advised that new data suggests to a link between the standard Western diet and smaller brain size.
Irritable bowel syndrome, commonly known as IBS, affects millions of people around the world. This condition, which often manifests itself as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea, is becoming increasingly common due to the prevalence of unhealthy diet choices. Fortunately, most cases of IBS don’t require medical intervention and can be easily remedied through changes in lifestyle.

According to the International Foundation of Gastrointestinal Disorders, the annual cost of IBS to society is approximately $21 billion. This value accounts for medical expenses as well as indirect costs due to loss of productivity and absenteeism. Natural remedies for IBS can significantly reduce the cost from both aspects. If you want to give them a try, here are some tips on how you can reduce IBS naturally:
Citrus fruits contain numerous natural compounds that can help prevent or treat many diseases. A natural extract made from these fruits can reportedly stop a protein called galectin-3 from triggering cancer, heart disease, and kidney diseases, an article in Natural Health 365 stated.

There are no pharmaceutical drugs that can affect galectin-3. So it is very welcome to hear that modified citrus pectin could possibly halt its activity and repair the damage caused by the protein.

Galectin-3 is naturally produced by the body. In normal amounts, it encourages the growth and repair of healthy tissues. It also promotes inflammation and immune response against pathogens. However, high levels of this protein are also a known warning sign of a degenerative disease. Excess amounts are also linked with cancer, heart failure, and kidney problems.
There are over 37 trillion cells in the average living person. Each cell is like a living organism. Each cell requires energy and must produce energy to carry out vital functions; that cellular energy is mainly created from the healthy metabolism and electron transfer of macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients from the foods that we eat.

Because the right type and balance of sugar molecules are necessary for cellular energy production, sugar consumption alone is not the cause of cancer. Likewise, a sugarless diet will not automatically eradicate cancer from the body. The breakdown of normal metabolic processes within the cell causes inflammation and is therefore the precursor to a host of chronic diseases, including the development of cancerous cells. The real link between sugar and cancer is the consumption of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and over-consumption of refined sugars which causes the breakdown of healthy metabolic processes within the cell.
Sugar is unquestionably bad for you, with study after study linking it to a growing list of health problems. When you’re craving something sweet, you might believe that choosing food that uses artificial sweeteners is the healthier choice. Unfortunately, you’re not doing yourself any favors if you opt for alternatives like aspartame or sucralose. In fact, they’ve been shown to cause glucose intolerance and damage your health.

It’s ironic, then, that many people who turn to artificial sweeteners are doing so because they’re concerned about the obesity and type 2 diabetes that sugar can cause. One person who once believed artificial sweeteners were a healthier alternative was cardiologist Dr. Krumholz Harlan. After carrying out a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, however, he quickly changed his tune upon seeing the strong link between artificial sweeteners and increased BMI and cardio-metabolic risks.

Hei :)
Håper det ikke medfører for store problemer på sikt, da jo tykktarmen har en viktig funksjon.
Anbefaler uansett at du bruker mat tilpasset Blodtype A!

Både ris og Havre er nøytrale, så kan fint brukes i et balansert måltid for Blodtype O :)
