INSULIN is a hormone produced by the pancreas in response to glucose (blood sugar)
FACT: all carbohydrates break down into glucose.
FACT: the more carbohydrates we eat, the more insulin we need to make.
Over time this can lead to the cells not responding to all the insulin- cells become resistant.
The pancreas keeps making more insulin to try to make cells respond. Eventually, the pancreas can’t keep up, and blood sugar keeps rising.
The problem is the extra insulin is toxic to the body.
So to keep you safe, the liver converts the insulin into triglycerides (which are fat + sugar) in your fat cells.
When your metabolic health is poor, you are likely to experience greater variations in your blood fat (think LDL cholesterol), blood sugar, and insulin levels after you eat, along with dietary inflammation.
This is not good for your health, and it puts you at greater risk of metabolic syndrome and metabolic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimers, hormone imbalances and Autoimmune conditions.
