Fructose in Fruits is the Natural Energy Source

If you look at the natural development of humankind and food gathering, fruits would have been the easiest food to gather.

You didn’t need to prepare fruits and could walk up to a tree, pick a piece of fruit, and start eating.

Raw, green vegetation was as easy to gather for consumption, but cooking it would have been a bit more time consuming.

Root vegetables and legumes would have been easy to harvest, but would have taken the most time to prepare.

Acquiring meat for consumption would have taken the most time and would have the most dangerous. From an acquisition standpoint, fruits would have logically been the bulk of the food you would consume.

Fruits contain a lot of natural fructose the body digested quickly to supports its fight-or-flight response in natural environments.

The body converts fructose, a natural sugar, into glucose. Many people have given sugar a bad name because of its negative association with diabetes, but natural sugar in fruits is not the issue.

Sugar and Diabetes

The consumption of chemically made sugar, like high fructose corn syrup, and additive sugar in processed foods, and table sugar is an issue.

Consuming them puts either toxic sugar into the body, or floods the body with a lot of sugar at a given time. This is an issue, but not even the major issue with diabetes.

The buildup of toxic fat in muscles, from the consumption of meat, dairy, and processed foods, is the direct problem. It blocks the muscles from being able to take in glucose, leaving glucose to flood the bloodstream.

The pancreas overworks to produce insulin to get glucose into muscles. The pancreas could never make enough insulin because the toxic fat in muscles stop glucose from entering them.

This stresses and undermines the health of the pancreas.

Fruit Sugar Benefits

Along with fructose being the body’s natural energy source, fruits are also loaded with phytonutrients and antioxidants that combat disease and oxidative stress. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that have an odd number of electrons.

These atoms steal electrons from other cells to pair with their electrons. Oxidative stress occur which damages and ages the cells.

Antioxidants in fruits protect healthy cells from being damaged by providing free radicals with the electrons they seek.

Fruits also provide needed fiber that help support the digestive tract and the digestion of food. Fiber bulks up stool so the muscles of the intestines do not have to strain to move the stool through the intestines.

Continuous muscle strain in the intestines could rupture the mucous membrane that lines the intestine. These ruptures, called diverticula, collect waste that becomes putrefied over time.
