Life is a lot sweeter when you can eat and drink what you like without hesitation.
Many people stay away from sweets not because they like to but because they have to! As a matter of fact, it is very difficult to avoid foods that look yummy and contain sugar. Most people don’t realize that much of their diet is high in sugar. Foods like tomato sauce, salad dressing, breakfast cereals, yogurt and bread all contain hidden sugars. So, the question is how many of us examine the food we eat each and every time? The truth is that those who do and actually stay away from such foods often feel deprived and have to fight with cravings. Wouldn't it be nice if there is a way for you to actually feel satisfied with enjoying just one slice of pizza instead of having to consume three slices, for instance? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enjoy healthy amounts of the foods you like without sacrificing the pleasure of eating?
We all know that sugar can wreak havoc to our bodies when it is out of control. Through ignorance and long term abuses of food intake, it may cause weight gain, increased risk of diabetes, heart attack, high blood pressure, cancer, depression, accelerated skin aging, increased cellular aging and it may also negatively impact our energy level. A major contributing factor to these problems is having insufficient GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide 1) that's required for the proper functioning of various organs to have optimum health.
What is GLP-1 (Glucagon-like peptide 1)?
GLP-1 (Glucagon-like peptide 1) is a hormone produced in the gut and released in response to food intake. Studies have found this hormone to be helpful for the proper functioning of various parts of our bodies as shown in the diagram below:
How does GLP-1 work and what does GLP-1 do in the body?
GLP-1 hormone has shown to be helpful for:
♦ Blood Sugar Control
♦ Energy Metabolism
♦ Regulating Appetite
♦ Alzheimer's disease
♦ Parkinson's disease
♦ Cardiovascular Functions
Highlights of what GLP-1 does to our body:
Sugar Control (diabetes)
1) GLP-1 increases insulin and decreases glucagon levels only during times when blood sugar is too high thereby lowering blood glucose. This is a built-in safety switch against blood sugar level falling too low - which provides a dependable way for keeping blood sugar at a stable level.
2) GLP-1 is found to delay the speed of digesting food, or stomach emptying. Thus, GLP-1 reduces the speed of glucose intake, making it easier for our body to maintain optimum blood sugar level after a meal until the next meal - which is a great help people with hypoglycemia.
1) GLP-1 influences nervous system to decrease the appetite.
2) GLP-1 in the hypothalamus produces feeling of satiety thereby reducing food intake.
3) In particular, a study using chocolate milk has shown that GLP-1 reduces the excitement of eating food, anticipatory food reward, which may result in decrease in appetite and motivation toward food. This helps users to make better and healthier food choices.
Brain Function and Memory
High blood sugar levels can cause damage in the hippocampus, a part of the brain that's involved in memory. Memory loss in diabetes can be a short term problem brought on by too low or high blood glucose levels. During hypoglycemia, for example, you may struggle to remember words. ... High blood glucose levels, over a number of years, can damage the nerves, including those of the brain, which can increase the risk of dementia.
The ability of GLP-1 to control blood sugar level is very important to maintain the proper function of the brain. GLP-1 receptor agonist treatment is associated with protection against a range of experimental disease models to include Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and multiple sclerosis.
In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, Alzheimer's Disease is also known as "Type 3 Diabetes".
Skin and Cellular Aging
Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) are compounds formed by reactions between sugar and protein in your body. They have been found to play a key role in skin aging. Consuming a diet high in refined carbs and sugar leads to the production of AGEs, which may cause your skin to age prematurely. AGEs damage collagen and elastin, which are proteins that help the skin stretch and keep its youthful appearance.When collagen and elastin become damaged, the skin loses its firmness and begins to sag.
As you grow older, telomeres naturally shorten, which causes cells to age and malfunction. Although the shortening of telomeres is a normal part of aging, unhealthy lifestyle choices can speed up the process. Consuming high amounts of sugar has been shown to accelerate telomere shortening, which increases cellular aging.
GLP-1 can help in slowing down the aging process
Risk of Heart Disease
High-sugar diets have been associated with an increased risk of many diseases, including heart disease, the number one cause of death worldwide.
Evidence suggests that high-sugar diets can lead to obesity, inflammation and high triglyceride, blood sugar and blood pressure levels — all risk factors for heart disease. Additionally, consuming too much sugar, especially from sugar-sweetened drinks, has been linked to atherosclerosis, a disease characterized by fatty, artery-clogging deposits.
GLP-1 increases insulin and decreases glucagon levels, which results in decreased blood sugar and thus minimize the risk of heart disease.
To augment the benefits of GLP-1, a natural compound from the Barberry plant, called berberine, can be used to complement its activities. Berberine has a 3000-year history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is one of the few supplements in the Examine.com database with human evidence that establishes it to be as effective as pharmaceuticals.
