The Sweet Table Sugar That Factors Coronary Heart Disease

One or Two Cube of Sugar for a Tea Cup is Enough

Sugar, as food, energized the cells, muscles, and brain.

Introduction

Table sugar factor coronary heart disease. Sugar, as a food energized the cells, muscles, and brain. It’s a naturally occurring complex chemical found in ‘plant-based’ nutrients: fruits and nuts. And, in human milk.

Other higher animals like cow, goats, and sheep also produce glucose in their milk.

Why we eat saccharide is to promoted health. Sugar, a food primarily for the brain, muscles, and cells of the body.

The best medicine you can administer to a fainting person is to give glucose in dilute solution. This revived the person faster.

Saccharine, at its worst can also act as a drug that breaks wellness, and bringing in several heart-related diseases, specific coronary heart disease.

In this article, I’m going to show you how saccharides induces heart-related atherosclerotic heart disease.

6 Things to Combat in-duration of the Arteries

  • Go to a Teaching Hospital for a regular check-up; and if you feel severe pains in the chest, arms, shoulders, and neck. Or you have problem breathing.
  • Don’t attempt any self medication. That may take your life.
  • Eat less of highly refined white carbohydrates. Brown-muscovado sweetener should be moderately preferable.
  • Watch for extra ‘added sugar’ on food labels. Avoid such products, whether there’re ketch-ups, sports drinks, and juices.
  • 100% natural fruit juices with ‘no added sugar’ should be preferred. Dilute it to the ratio 2:3 water:fruit juice.
  • Be moderate with natural sugary foods.


Extra Sugars in Foods is Dangerous

Extra-added sugars in foods: avoid such products whether they're ketch-ups, sports drinks, or juices.

Types of Dextrose

Sugar, is a type of simple-complex carbohydrate. It’s an important food stuff for human beings. The body needs call for it to be used in energizing the muscles, brain, nerves, cells, and even the blood. Let’s examine this briefly.

1. Complex Sugars: these are a mixture of two or more substances. It comes from the sugar cane juice, or sugar beet. The sugar palm or jaggery is also another source.

The stem of the sugar cane is crushed between rollers, and the sugar-juice flows out. It’s then made into a crude cube form (muscovado) either with or without the molasses.

Or a pure whitish crystal cube form, we called table sugar. Granulates of both the crude and white cubes are also made and marketed.

The sugar beet is also treated in a similar manner and syrup obtained.

In the case of the sugar-palm, the flower shoots are trapped, and the sap that flows out is evaporate to get the sweetener.

In these three cases, the product obtained is chemically called sucrose.

  • Sucrose, consists of glucose and fructose, obtain from fruits. But here the sugar-cane, palm, and beet.
  • Lactose or milk sugar, glucose + galactose, contained in cow or human milk.
  • Maltose or malt sugar, (glucose + glucose), gotten when cooked starch is chew and saliva mixed with it in the mouth.

    2. Simple Sugars: these consists of single sugar molecules. These are fructose, galactose, and glucose. We consumed them normally.

Sugar Nutrition Facts

100 grams pure sugar provide you 387 calories of ‘empty’ energy, or 3.8 calories per gram, and nothing else. And, these calories as empty energy, only drain you, making you feel tire and lethargy. It even spike the bloodstream, and you get exhausted, so that insulin, is not able to combat excessive glucose in the blood, despite the fact that vitamins and mineral matters were added. Not so of lactose in one cup of banana, or apple. That's why you should prefer your sugar sources more from organic fruits and vegetables. Being complex, these provided yo with all the dense nutrients your body and the blood needed.

Sugar Alternatives

Organic fruits and vegetables, and dairy products are the best alternatives to your craving for sugar. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber and proteins and can slow down the process of blood spiking. Organic honey is another alternative levulose or nectar product. But fruits, especially, ripe fruits are very good because of their rich nutrients. They’re also rich in fibres. Unrefined Cereals or grains are quite good. Nuts and seeds have fibres that will not surge your blood. Protein rich cereals has limited source. Cooking whole legume (beans) and eating same weekly can significantly reduced blood-sugar. So, go natural.

Diabetes and Sugar

My Sugar-Coat Experience

I was a youth of 17 years in a boarding secondary school when it happen. The school had a break and I stay behind along with few other students to prepared for the coming final class 2 examination. Ration of foods now become 5 times bigger, and I had half a packet of sugar each day.

I put 17 cubes in my teacup on Saturday, and 17 again in my cup of tea on Sunday. The following Monday the same 17 cubes. Normally, 5 cubes is what is given each student.

Welcome diabetes, that generates heart diseases. Almost immediately, on Monday I began to urinate frequently. Any cup of water I took to quench my taste was urinated directly. I found the experience terrifying. Diabetes melitus, a heart-related disease had set in.

Sourcing Your Sugar Needs

Sugar Additions

If you're addict to sugar, you'll be eating lots of foods and drinks any time of the day. It can affect your health in more than one way.

The best way to avoid the addict is to keep candies, sweets, and or the food items that are laden with sugar out of your reach.

By eating less and less of every every artificial sweeteners, substitute those with whole legume foods like bean, peanuts, fruits, vegetables, and proteins, you'll be on your way to good heart health.








Sugar Addition and How to Get Ride of it

Natural Organic Foods are Idea for Controlling Coronary Artery Diseases.

Enter Mother Nature

Mother nature can be helpful. I had recourse to nature to combat this scenario. Being a plant-based nutrient loving person since childhood, I ate a generous amount of organic foods: fresh fish during dinner, plus semi-ripe mangoes that I harvested in the school compound. That brought immediate relief to me.

Indoctrinated by science and technology, we eat what was suggested. Or it’s the advertiser and the producers of the goods that had a hand in influencing us to what to eat. We take in the bait and believe the products to be cleaner, healthier, and more hygienic. We swallow all line, hook, and sinker without giving in a second thought. That’s where we got it wrong, and get defeated. And then, end up in the hospital with a sickness or two.

Less dextrine in everything I eat seems to be a solution. Semi-ripe or unripe mangoes have fewer polysaccharides or starch. So, I start to take fewer sweeties in custard, tea, coffee, oats, corn flask, rice flask, and cassava flasks.

The moment my diabetes stopped, I prevented a serious heart-related disease. Thanks to mother nature, or alternative medicine. I’m still diabetes free and heart healthily to date.

Be Moderate with Monosaccharides

That taught me a lesson during my grammar school days, and after I left school, and went to university for a four years Bachelor of Arts degree course.

Science, especially food and nutrition, and the history of science was a hot topic for freshers. Interestingly, I began to develop and dig deep along these lines.

Traditional and alternative medicine was also a captivating topic at the university. You either dive in or leave the faculty.

Then it happens, I was experiencing a slight fever. I went to a public hospital to see a doctor. I'm almost faint in one of the out-patients wards. Furthermore, I was taken in and put on a glucose drip. Some two hours later, I recover and was discharged with no medication. I had no sugar in my blood.

This is because I no longer put sugar in my teas and coffee again for years. I detested anything that had sugar, even sweets. Now, I know better. Use a cube or two of sugar in your teas or coffee. Whatever you eat that needs the addition of sugar, be moderate with it. And, I’ve been doing that for almost 45 years to date.

A Tablespoonful of Granulate Brown Sugar

Some forms, though are white sugars, were added with chemicals to give the appearance of brown.

Ischemic Heart Diseases

My parents including the grandmother, all suffer from stroke. But I’m not sure of that. What I do know for sure is that they used too much galactose in foods. They had a sweet tooth or tongue.

I learn to prevent many ill-health whiles in secondary grammar school to date.

Coronary heart disease, sometimes called ischemic heart disease, is major among many heart diseases. It's the most common and prevalent. It affects the flow of blood to the heart.

When fat deposits or plaque are building up in the walls of the arteries, blood flow to the heart and body cells is restricted. I’ll not relate how these fats from fatty meats and fishes, or margarine and other hard fats are deposited in the body.

How Stroke or Heart Attack is Cause

Eating too many clarify-sugar spikes blood. Your blood pressure will rise to such a level that it’ll cause high blood pressure. This is where the forcing of the blood in vessels and arteries is above normal. Then, if your arteries are clogged with fat deposits from candies that are turned into fats, the blood pressure will cause certain setbacks, like the hardening of the arterial walls. This hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis decreased the flow of blood to the heart and cells.

Let’s examine these very briefly and simply, too. When a decrease in the flow of blood to the brain occurs, stroke results. Stroke can also result when the flow of blood bursts or ruptured the arteries. When the blood decrease to the heart, the result is a heart attack.

So when you eat refined sugar in whatever form, remember these two things, and moderate your intake.

Tea, coffee, and other cocoa beverages, including corn or rice flasks, are consumed most mornings as part of a breakfast menu. I do. And, here, lots of maple goes into these kinds of stuff. For a cup of tea, I use one cube of brown muscovado, or white sugar; or one teaspoonful of any granulate sugar. Some people use ‘pure commercial glucose’. That’s also sugar. And if it happens that I was very active on odd or exercise days, I used two cubes or two teaspoonfuls. My evening teacups took one or half cubes of sugar, nothing more. Sugar factors heart disease as the number one killer in the world.

The school of thought is that a man uses 16 cubes a day, and a woman half of that does not go well when heart diseases are still prevalent, as the world’s number one killer.

How Much Sugar You Should Eat in a Day?

The rule of thumb is that 5 g or 6 g is the lowest. 25 g seems to be the maximum point. Now, if you eat 100 g of banana or mango, you pass the minimum level of 5 g daily. And they're nothing wrong with that as you have also to eat fibre, mineral matters, vitamins, and trace elements that are lacking in the pure clarify sugar you put into your cup of coffee or tea.

So, get into tandem with nature's organic fruits and vegetables. Eat dried dates, tiger or grass nuts, apricots, cobra, and others.

White Cube Sugars

If it happens that I was very active on odd or exercise days, I used two cubes.

Diabetes and High blood Pressure

Having both diabetes and high blood pressure is very dangerous. It causes high incidence of cardiovascular diseases. If you had high blood pressure upon consuming too much saccharoids, or commercial sugary products, it’ll increase the force of the blood pressure in your arteries, and the force can damage your arteries.

The Cholesterol Formation: Then, there’s the risk of too much ‘bad’ cholesterol in the bloodstream when plaque or hard fats is being formed, blocking the artery walls.

Again, the so called high triglycerides (fats), and the ‘good’ low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol also contributes to harden your arteries. Too much good low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in the bloodstream is bad, and cause health risks.

The good high density lipoprotein (HDL) usually absorbed the bad low-density cholesterol (LDL), and takes it back to the liver, where it’s flushes out of the body. Significantly, this lowers the risk of heart attack and stokes. It’ll do you a lot of good if you’ll include the eating of hard boil eggs and peanuts or cashew nuts along with your cup of breakfast tea. Eggs contain significant HDL. So eating saccharin and getting fats from sugary foods is bad for the body. When you asas a man or woman began to get spare tires around the waistline, know that ‘sugar’ is being turn into fats in the body. So, cut it down before it harm you.

Table Sugar More Risk Factors

  • A high ‘bad’ LDL plus a low ‘good’ cholesterol level in the bloodstream accelerates health risks.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Heart disease in a family.
  • Prevalent diabetes.
  • Risks are high at 45 years of age as a man and a post-menopausal woman.
  • You put on more weight being physically inactive.

Talk with your doctor for a test, in case you suspect more than two of the above challenges.



Why Table Sugar is Bad for You

  • Chronic heart diseases or congestive heart failure can be life threatening or life long.
  • It can’t be cured.
  • Medications to treat the illness is serious, and is now available.
  • Medical diagnosis is the only method to detect the disease.
  • Medical imaging is also used to detect the illness.
  • Laboratory tests are often necessary.
  • The building up of plaque in the bloodstream is the main cause of the angina pectoris. It cause the narrowing of the coronary heart arteries, that limited the flow of blood to the heart, and other blood vessels and arteries in the legs and arms.

    These setbacks are according to the school of medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.

Chronic Heart Disease

Conclusion

Sugar, whether natural or commercial, is a portion of good food. But human beings usually abused its use during digestion. Used sparely, it promoted good health. Your bloodstream needs cellulose regularly from your diet. Add molasses when necessary. Get lactose mostly from fruits, seeds, nuts, and vegetables.
