Thank goodness I banned this ingredient from my household years ago. I knew it was “bad” for the whole family. I knew it was addictive and could cause tooth decay, and weight gain.
Now it turns out there are more alarming reasons to ban this ingredient from your diet. Would you knowingly consume something that can cause large pores, cellulite and even mood swings? Of course not, you would run in the opposite direction kicking and screaming.
The terrible ingredient I am talking about is High Fructose Corn Syrup. It turns up in expected places like sodas, cookies, candy and ice-cream but many people have no idea that it could be in their salad dressings, yogurts, breads, cereals, and crackers. If you eat processed food of any kind and by that I mean any food that you did not personally make in your very own kitchen, then you must thoroughly read the label.
So why is HFCS so bad? Regular cane sugar, the white stuff you buy in a bag, is made of 2 molecules that are bound tightly together which requires digestive enzymes to break it down before it can be digested. HFCS is not bound together and therefore there is no digestion required. HFCS is absorbed immediately into your blood and goes straight to your liver where it triggers hypergenesis which is the production of fats like triglycerides and cholesterol.
HFCS causes a lot of stress on your liver which then affects your body’s largest organ, your skin.
The good news is that when you take HFCS out of your diet you will start to see your moods improve, excessive appetites decrease, pores shrink, waistlines shrink, and cellulite diminishes.
The big reason why so many companies use HFCS is because it is cheap, dirt cheap. The U.S. government subsidizes corn farmers and keeps tariffs high on imported cane sugar.
Interestingly enough when you go to Europe, they do not use HFCS, they use cane or beet sugar. Even their Coca Cola is made with cane sugar and not HFCS. This is one of many reasons they do not have an epidemic of obesity.
Beware, the Corn Refiners Association realizes that people are wising up when it comes to the dangers of HFCS. They are pushing to change the name to Corn Sugar.
When it comes to slowing down the aging process, knowledge is power. The faster we spread the knowledge, the faster things will change for the better.
