The average American consumes about 150 pounds of sugar every year and it's effects can cancel the effects of vitamin C. Vitamin C can only be obtained by food or supplements. It's responsible for our skin structure and overall health. Glucose competes with vitamin C using the same cell receptors and doesn't allow vitamin C to do it's beneficial work. Sugar also decreases effects of B vitamins when eaten in high levels. The best diet is one that includes as little amount of any type of sugar as possible. The FDA will soon be required foods to be limited in sugar when sold commercially even natural foods.
- People consume a lot of sugar each year and that can have negative impacts on the heart, blood and brain.
- Unlike animals, humans cannot produce their own vitamin c and we must take it in the forms of food and supplements.
- Even brown sugar and sugar in the raw is bad for people, it is not healthier in any way.
"The specific receptor for vitamin C is the same receptor that allows glucose or sugar to enter. Because the cell has a greater affinity for glucose compared to vitamin C, if the sugar levels in the body are elevated due to poor diet, the cells will absorb the sugar disallowing room for the vitamin C to be taken up by our cells."
