Sugar Warning! Excerpt Day!

Sugar

Excess production of AGEs: Advanced #glycation end products (AGEs) are harmful compounds that form when protein or fat combine with sugar in the bloodstream. Too many AGEs lead to oxidative #stress and inflammation.

Increased gut permeability: Bacteria, #toxins and undigested food particles can more easily move out of the gut and into the bloodstream, potentially leading to inflammation.

Higher “bad” LDL cholesterol: Excess LDL #cholesterol has been associated with higher levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation.

Weight gain: A diet rich in added sugar and refined #carbohydrates can lead to weight gain. Excess body fat has been linked to #inflammation, partly due to insulin resistance. #theflogjournal #sugar #autoimmune

An auto immune warrior fighting the battle to keep myself healthy! Auto immunity will NOT get me down. Multiple sclerosis: get out! The FLog food journal is created from my journey to fight with faith on my side.
