Medical condition or heaven sent?
You make the call. The natural fruits in this fresh fruit medley smoothie provide a health conscious individual steady energy expenditure throughout the day rather than a sugar high that quickly falters.
Natural sugars from fruit contain fructose rather than the sucrose found in processed sugars. Processed sugars, also known as refined sugars, cause a surge of blood sugar rather than a slow release of sugar into the blood aided by the fiber in natural fruit. Over longer periods of time, sudden release of sucrose into the blood can cause an increase in blood pressure. The natural release of fructose over time can lead to better blood pressure regulation, and a happier, healthier individual.
The onset of geriatric diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes are linked to high blood pressure that may be induced by sucrose. The chemical composition of sucrose, or refined sugar, is a glucose and a fructose molecule bound together by oxygen. Fructose with fiber in fruits can distribute sugar slower into the blood, allowing for ample time to expend energy throughout the day. Consumption of more natural sugars from fruit is much safer than consumption of refined sugars.
Like a virtuous composition of notes creating a masterpiece tasty beyond measure, this fresh fruit medley smoothie is pure heavenly pleasure.
Give the gift of sweet musical truths to the world for this ever abounding light and healthy recipe. For those with a sweet tooth, or those who seek a nutritionally sound diet, natural and processed sugars are not the only option.
Artificial sweeteners have become popular as replacements to refined sugar. Oftentimes people are drawn to these sweeteners as a healthy alternative. Alarmingly, they are not as healthy as they appear. Aspartame, found in packets like NutraSweet and Equal, has been linked to many detrimental diseases and is a sugar found in diet sodas. Splenda, also known as sucralose, is another type of artificial sweetener that has a chemical structure with chlorine atoms. If choosing to use artificial sweeteners, Stevia appears to be a better healthy alternative to natural sugars. Studies have shown that blood pressure can actually be lowered through the use of Stevia. Xylitol is another artificial sweetener that should be used with caution by health conscious citizens who are also proud pet owners. Xylitol is just one of many foods that is highly toxic to dogs.
