Florida Florida: A natural sugar-lowering food
"Jerusalem artichoke, also known as Jerusalem artichoke, Japanese ginger, is an edible root vegetable. Because of the bad taste, it is often used for pickling pickles. In recent years, it has been found that Jerusalem artichoke has two-way regulation on blood sugar, that is, on the one hand, it can reduce blood sugar in patients with diabetes, on the other hand, it can increase blood sugar in patients with hypoglycemia. Studies have shown that Jerusalem artichoke contains a structure very similar to the human pancreas endogenous insulin, when urine sugar, consumption of Jerusalem artichoke can control urine sugar, indicating a role in lowering blood sugar. When people have low blood sugar, they can also get relief from eating Jerusalem artichoke. Can Jerusalem artichokes really cure diabetes? Ginger contains a lot of fructose, eat a small amount of fructose can promote the synthesis of liver glycogen, and now major pharmaceutical companies are studying the role of Glucokinase activator, so there is a slight role in lowering blood sugar. But when too much fructose is consumed, when liver glycogen synthesis is saturated, fructose begins to promote triglyceride synthesis in the liver, so many people believe that excessive fructose consumption is a major cause of fatty liver disease. Fructose, which is Sweeter Than Glucose and even higher than sucrose and honey, has become an important additive in the food industry. Fructose is widely used in many processed foods and beverages, this trend is thought to be one of the causes of insulin resistance and the diabetes epidemic. Can Jerusalem artichokes really cure diabetes? The two-way regulation of blood sugar by Jerusalem artichoke is wishful thinking. It is not that it can lower blood sugar in diabetics and raise blood sugar in people with low blood sugar, but that it can slightly reduce blood sugar in people with mild diabetes, if excessive eating can aggravate the condition of diabetic, increase blood sugar, aggravate fatty liver. So even if it has the effect of lowering blood sugar, but diabetics still need to pay special attention, this is a double-edged sword, its effect is not magic, eat more still have the disadvantage.
