AHI HEALTH TIP FOR April 2015
The effects of refined or Fruit Sugar on your body / Life?
Greetings! The study showed that drinking regular soda can shorten your telomeres. This is huge. Research has shown that the length of your telomeres is related to longevity. This means that shorter telomeres results in a shorter lifespan and on the flip side, longer telomeres means a longer lifespan. Obviously, anything that can shorten your life is no good and should be avoided.
Another truth that is important to understand is that the sugar in soda, or in anything else for that matter, will also decrease your Growth Hormone production. Growth Hormone is a well known hormone since it is often referred to as the “fountain of youth”. Synthetic Growth Hormone injections such as human growth hormone is a big part of the exploding “anti-aging” field of medicine. But if you follow Macrobiotic approach then this is all done naturally with the help of whole food which has been practiced for over 1000's of years in Japan.. At AHI we have the expertise who will assist you in achieving your goal " Healthy body Healthy living and live a vibrant young life. You will also be coached how to obtain the nutrients from whole organic food beneficial to our body.
People spend big bucks trying to optimize their levels of growth hormone. When you understand all of the things that Growth Hormone does in your body, you could see why anti-aging medicine is focusing in on this very important hormone. Here are a few highlights of what Growth Hormone does;
- Promotes new muscle growth.
- Improves body fat metabolism
- Helps you sleep better, including deep REM sleep.
- Improves energy
- Makes your bones stronger
- Improves sexual function
As we age, our production of Growth Hormone decreases. The last thing we need is to have a diet that further causes a decrease in Growth Hormone. This is why it is vital that you avoid sugar and highly processed carbohydrate as much as possible from your diet.
Too much carbohydrate or sugar causes insulin levels to go up. Higher insulin levels results in a decrease in growth hormone secretion. This is another reason why sugar causes-aging. Not only does it shorten your telomere length, it also decreases your Growth Hormone levels which leads to premature aging. 75% of your growth hormone secretion occurs at night. This is one of the many reasons why sleep is essential. Poor sleep also leads to a decrease in Growth Hormone . When you understand the relationship between insulin and Growth Hormone, you can see why it is very important to evaluate the health of your hormonal system. Finally I will say what is done naturally and the results achieved will be long lasting compare to pills on which an individual becomes addicted of which modern science wishes us to adapt, beneficial to multinational firms who targets to exploit the public for monetary gains for their shareholders.
