Toxic Food Ingredient GIVING You Diabetes?!
We all know that processed food is bad for us.
The mountains of refined sugar and cheap salt can make you gain weight… mess with your heart… and even impact your brain.
Now, it looks like these foods could be doing even more damage to your body.
Because researchers have found that a popular ingredient in highly processed foods can also give you DIABETES.
And believe it or not – it might be worse than all that sugar.
A new study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, found that feeding mice propionate (a naturally occurring fatty acid) dramatically increases your blood sugar.
Yes, propionate is natural, but the super-concentrated form that food manufacturers use is nothing short of poison.
Propionate is FDA approved and has been used in food processing as a mold inhibitor for many years.
Like most food additives, the health effects of propionate were never properly studied.
For the research, Harvard University scientists divided 14 healthy people into 2 groups.
One group ate meals containing 1 gram of propionate, and the other didn’t. Blood samples were taken from all participants both before and after the meal.
At the end, the researchers found that folks who ate the propionate-containing meals had MAJOR blood sugar spikes.
Propionate does this because it increases your levels of three blood sugar-producing hormones called glucagon, norepinephrine, and FABP4.
And all three of those hormone cause sugar to be dumped into your bloodstream.
When you combine these effects with the excessive sugar in processed foods it’s a DOUBLE WAMMY for your blood sugar.
So, your best bet is to ditch as many processed foods as you can. And start focusing on healthy, blood sugar-lowering diet full of fresh produce, healthy fats, and wild caught seafood.
