Sugar and the effects on aging skin
This information will blow your mind. I personally am a huge intaker of sugar. It didn’t happen all at once. It happened about about 16 years ago when my son was in the hospital trying to stay alive. He was 11 weeks old at the time and hooked up to all kinds of machinery to keep him alive. I am happy to say that he is 17 now and still kicking.
The point of this story is that I used to have a break during the time he was in intensive rehab and I went to McDonalds to have a break. My break was going through the drive through for a medium diet soda. Yep! Right there I said it. I put my order in for a beverage because I couldnt stomach the food and I paid them their 1.06, they handed it out and boom done. I didn’t have to ask any questions, they didn’t ask me any questions that required difficult decisions and they didnt know me. Even better.
Long story short the mental release I get when I drive to McDonalds to this day every morning is all about the habit that was created. I truly have the sugar addiction which then I crave more sugar during the day. I couldn’t stay awake during the night if my son needed me after he was home from the hospital. I did everything to stay awake. If I hadn’t drank at least 4-7 32 oz of soda a day, I would be really tired. I have cut back since then but mentally I didn’t realize what I had been doing to my body. The cells over your body can become numb from taking in all of ththe sugar and then the body produces its own insulin which could cause our body to be resistant and age us eleven to twenty years of life. Some of the effects can become irreversible. But if caught early enough the outcome can be changed.
Blood sugar and insulin overload can lead to these results:
- clinical depression
- premature aging of the skin
- pandemic killers such as heart disease in women, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinsons
After this list, we should all quit right? Remember in order to quit something you have to replace with something that is more important to let go of the bad habit. This is a habit that we have told or allowed our bodies to just do it on automatic. Our body can be a traitor by being sneaky during blood tests. Our body is taught to survive so it will do anything to proetect helathy or unhealthy habits. This is why so many people have gone on diets yet to gain all their weight back and more.
To help kick this habit, our body has chemical reactions every day. Billions of transactions are happening without our knowledge. There is a word called Phorylation. this word will contribute to control weight, blood sugar, insulin levels and well lifespan. When insulin is released by the pancreas, it races to our muscle cells. Bottom line, is this little miracle helps to control the adversary, helps control the insulin and blood sugar. The better insulin management, the younger you look and thinner you remain. Before I run out of space read more about ACCORD (Action to Control cCardiovascular Risk in Diabetes) study. I hope this brief infrioamtion will help you make better choices not just to look younger but to have a committment yourself and your family by cutting back on all those grocery story goodies that are packaged, candy, soda, etc. Stay tuned on some basic preventative solutions to the sugar highs to reduce that natural insulin.
