HEALTHY LIVING . GUIDE



High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is one of the worst things you can put in your body. Studies show it is linked to some of the world’s deadliest diseases. Why is HFCS so LETHAL? Unlike other sugars, HFCS is metabolized almost entirely by the liver. And when you drink a soda or eat something full of HFCS, your liver is overwhelmed. It can’t convert the fructose into glucose fast enough. Glucose is a form of sugar your body can readily use.

Instead, it starts making fats from the fructose…and sending them into the bloodstream. This STOPS your body from responding to insulin. It leads to a myriad of serious health conditions such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and dementia.

Beware of These 5 Hidden Sources of HFCS

1. Ketchup and Barbecue Sauces. Ketchup, America’s favorite condiment
They often contain one quarter HFCS. Barbecue sauce is even worse. It can be half HFCS. Check the health food aisle for brands that use natural sweeteners such as raw honey.

2. Salad Dressings
Most commercial bottled dressings contain high amounts of HFCS. Instead, make your own dressings at a fraction of the cost of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and your favorite fresh herbs. In addition to HFCS, many dressings include unhealthy artificial colors, flavors, and other chemicals.

3. Sports Drinks
We figure they are made for athletes, so they must be healthy. In reality, they often have as much HFCS as soda. Organic coconut water is a good substitute.

4. Protein Bars
They are marketed as healthy energy boosters. But they can be loaded with HFCS. Some bars contain 5 to 7 teaspoons of it. Healthier high-protein snacks include pastured hard-boiled eggs, organic almond butter, raw nuts, hummus, and tuna.

5. Multi-Grain Breads and Crackers
Just because it says multi-grain or whole grain doesn’t mean it is healthy. Most contain HFCS.
