Fat Family in Front of Fast Food Background

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Liver Gets Stressed

High fructose corn syrup stresses the liver. Glucose can be absorbed by all the cells and is a good sugar. However, high fructose corn syrup changes glucose, through a partial hydrogenation process, and by using synthetic chemicals, that turn corn into fructose. The main benefit to manufacturers is that it slightly sweeter than sugar and so manufacturers can use less product and save money.

Body Absorption

The problem with fructose is that it can't be directly absorbed by the cells. It must first be broken down in the liver. People that eat a lot of high fructose corn syrup are known to have fatty livers. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition large quantities of fructose from a variety of sources, including table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, induce insulin resistance, impair glucose tolerance, produce high levels of insulin, boost a dangerous type of fat in the blood and cause high blood pressure in animals.

How Does the Body Handle Excess?

In our diets, we often consume huge amounts of high fructose corn syrup. Our bodies can only handle a small amount of this type of sugar. When the body is overwhelmed with too much fructose, and this is usually the case for soda drinkers and candy eaters, the liver can't handle it and will convert the excess to fats (triglicerides). High triglicerides are a risk factor for heart disease.

Appetite Hormones

The appetite hormones are not shut off properly with high fructose corn syrup consumption. You will not feel full and your appetite may also increase. In addition, your taste for sweeter things will prevail. The end result is that the individual that consumes this product a lot will become overweight or obese.
