Episode 22:11 Fructose, Uric Acid… and Why People Get Fat - An Interview With Coach Sam Shelton
On this week’s episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we continue our conversation with Coach Sam Shelton about the important role food plays in our health.
Specifically we talk about Uric Acid and how high blood levels of it signal the body to make and store fat.
(Yes, you read that correctly: high Uric Acid levels TELL the body to store fat.)
In addition, high Uric Acid levels are also associated with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and cancer.
NOT conditions you want!
So, what causes high Uric Acid levels?
The answer is simple:
Fructose is a form of sugar that, when consumed from the right source (fruit), can be very good for you.
However, when consumed from the wrong sources - table sugar and high fructose corn syrup (junk food) - can cause a ton of health problems.
Fortunately, there are simple ways to measure and monitor blood Uric Acid levels.
There are also simple ways to LOWER them through diet.
Give this episode a good listen to learn all you need to know about Uric Acid and how lowering it can dramatically improve your health.
