This is pretty shocking…
Matt Cook here, and I try not to get too upset with today’s so-called “gurus”…
…as they keep pushing the same old falsehoods about sugar.
“Sugar is bad. Sugar makes you fat. Sugar leads to diabetes.”
These are just some of the sugar falsehoods they tell men.
Here’s the truth about sugar — and what really happens to a man’s body when he avoids it…
—-Important Message for Men Who Love Intercourse—-
This one unusual practice is allowing men to have sex every day
Men who are 40, 60, 70, even 100 years old are using this practice…
Men with heart issues, prostate problems, high blood pressure, a bad back…
Men who aren’t getting good erections and men who haven’t had a boner in weeks or months…
Men who haven’t been with a woman in years are now having sex every day or every other day…
I quit sugar for a month – here’s what happened
In the last 20 years, we’ve heard so much about how sugar causes inflammation in the body!
The problem is that this is all complete nonsense.
Sugar is anything but inflammatory.
Sure, you can make up some strange experiments where you throw a lot of liquid sugar on top of pathogenic bacteria infecting the stomach and get bad results…
But that’s caused by bacteria, not sugar.
The reality is quite the opposite of what we’ve been told in the media.
Sugar is anti-inflammatory.
This is particularly important in the brain – where just small amounts of inflammation can lead to serious brain disorders which affect the rest of the body.
For example, researchers discovered that brain cells called astrocytes, when deprived of sugar, started to produce inflammation.
Astrocytes in the brain are important for defense against stress, water homeostasis, energy storage, the production of mitochondria and repair of the brain structure itself.
The cell experiments were performed at Aachen University in Germany. The findings were published in the Journal of Molecular Neuroscience.
The most common cell type in the brain is the astrocyte. Astrocytes are not just numerous, they are the organizers of the brain.
The astrocytes regulate energy going to all the other brain cells and they are responsible for synapse formation.
These are the tiny structures which help to transmit information from one part of the brain to the other.
“Astrocytes are the most abundant cell in the brain and crucial to ensure the metabolic supply of neurons and their synapse formation.”
Problems with astrocytes will always lead to problems in the brain in general.
And a number of different conditions related to diet have been shown to affect astrocytes.
“Overnutrition in patients suffering from obesity causes astrogliosis the hypothalamus.”
Overnutrition and obesity are conditions which cause the blood and brain to become overloaded with fat.
This is important because cells choose whether to use fat or sugar as fuel.
But when there is too much fat around these cells cannot get adequate sugar.
Over nutrition and obesity lead to sugar deprivation of the cells – regardless of how much sugar someone is consuming.
In under-nutrition conditions like anorexia, there are also strong indicators that astrocytes are affected…
Again probably because of sugar supply limits.
“Diseases accompanied by malnutrition also appear to have an impact on the brain and astrocyte function, anorexia nervosa is associated with reduced astrocyte proliferation and cell count.”
This research was designed to learn a little bit more about these different elements.
The researchers used astrocytes which they obtained from the brains of rodents.
These brain cells were cultured in the lab in different mixtures.
Some of the mixtures used for growing the astrocytes had more sugar than others.
The researchers found that when these brain cells were not given sufficient sugar they started to produce inflammation.
“Long-term glucose starvation increased the expression of a subset of pro-inflammatory genes and shifted the primary astrocyte population to the pro-inflammatory phenotype.
When these brain cells can’t get enough sugar they start to increase inflammation in the brain.
“Our findings demonstrate that astrocytes under chronic glucose starvation respond with an inflammatory reaction.”
This is exactly the opposite of what we have been told for the last few decades – we have been told that sugar causes inflammation.
Clearly it is the absence of sugar which is causing inflammation in these primary brain cells.
The researchers commented that this may be one of the reasons why neurological and brain disorders are seen in people with undernutrition – meaning people with anorexia.
“An association between elevated inflammatory responses due to chronic starvation and alterations found in the brains of patients suffering from undernutrition seems possible.”
But there is a sort of undernutrition which can occur even when people are getting plenty of calories.
When people eat masses of unstable fats, these fats block cells like astrocytes from taking up sugar – even if there is plenty of sugar coming into the body.
In this sense, “overnutrition” can be identical to “undernutrition”.
The effect is sugar starvation leading to inflammation.
You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing health-related problems.
—-Important Message About Sugar—-
Eating sugar is GOOD for you — as long as you’re BURNING sugar for energy
Most men think it’s good to have a fat-burning metabolism.
But that’s actually the opposite of what men want — because youth is sugar-burning.
Young, healthy people burn sugar — not fat.
And it’s actually very easy to get your body burning sugar again instead of fat…
