High-fructose corn syrup & obesity

The increased use of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the US, as found in soft drinks and other foods, mirrors the rapid increase in obesity by contributing to increased energy intake and weight gain, and enhancing caloric over-consumption. Sweet corn-based syrups now represent close to one-half of the caloric sweeteners consumed by Americans. HFCS has become a favorite substitute for sucrose not only in carbonated beverages, but also in baked goods, canned fruits, jams and jellies, and dairy products.
The increase in consumption of HFCS has a relation to the epidemic of obesity, and its over-consumption in calorically sweetened beverages has played a role in the epidemic of obesity. The digestion, absorption, and metabolism of fructose differ from those of glucose. Unlike glucose, fructose does not stimulate insulin secretion or enhance leptin production. Because insulin and leptin act as key signals in the regulation of food intake and body weight, dietary fructose may contribute to increased energy intake and weight gain.

Now that the news is out that low fat and low carbohydrate diets help people lose weight and keep it off to the same degree, people might be saying, “How do I eat healthy?” Here are four suggestions that go a long way toward improving your health and avoiding diet-caused decline.
1) Look for a short ingredient list. The longer the list, the less nutritious the food is.
2) Look at the fiber content. A healthy food has 1-2 grams of fiber per 100 calories.
3) Avoid high fructose corn syrup. It has no food value and helps you get fat—empty calories.
4) Avoid hydrogenated fats. These are added as a preservative in baked goods and to harden oils that are usually liquid at room temperature. They lead to heart problems. Check your labels on peanut butter, ice cream, backed and processed foods, margarine.

Herbs Work! Testimonials from Very Satisfied Users

Increase Your Sex Drive: As men and women age, their hormone levels decrease. As a result, many women (and their partners) complain about a decrease in sexual desire with aging. One of our clients reported that her doctor mentioned that DHEA is converted to testosterone, the hormone responsible for the sex drive. This female client added DHEA-F (1 capsule twice daily) to her supplement regimen and had dramatic results. Both she and her husband are thrilled to report that she is once again interested in both enjoying and initiating intimacy. DHEA-M (for men) would probably have the same results for the guys. Give it a try and let us know!

Nature’s Fresh in the Laundry:I do the laundry for my 95-year-old mother. She spills on her clothes frequently because her hands now shake so much and also gets blood on her clothes from skin tears. I discovered that Nature’s Fresh sprayed directly on the stains is very effective in removing food and blood stains. You can spray it on when the clothes are removed or directly before putting it in the washing machine.”

Phyto-soy for Hair: "I just had a customer order two bottles of Phyto-soy. He said it was keeping his hair from falling out. He had been taking both HSN-W and Phyto-Soy but the HSN-W was just making his hair grow (what a problem to have!) so he stopped taking that one. Later he stopped taking the Phyto-soy and he said the sink “looked like an animal had crawled in there”. He went back on the Phyto-soy at 1 capsule a day and noticed a big improvement."
