Glucose Toxicity: The Worldwide Problem and all the Natural Solution
Glucose is an essential ingredient in our diet and we all need it to produce the energy for everyday living and while glucose is essential, too much glucose over too long of a time is toxic to our bodies. Glucose toxicity leads to the development of Type 2 diabetes in both children and adults, demanding that our healthcare systems spend a huge amount on treating diabetes and its complications. Chronic hyperglycemia leads to insulin resistance. Insulin is the hormone needed for glucose to enter our cells to produce energy. It needs to make insulin in an attempt to lower blood sugar can in turn lead to an inability to make insulin. When this happen as in the case of Type 2 diabetes, we may have to resort to injection of insulin in order to try to keep our blood glucose levels in the normal range. Glucose is not a passive bystander in our bloodstream but is a toxic and reactive compound. Glucose reacts with all of the proteins in our body forming GLYCATED PROTEINS.
