The brain, pancreas and liver are very important organs. Without these organs, life is not possible. Excess sugar in the diet is addictive in the same way as alcohol, tobacco and drugs, because sugar affects the same areas of the brain. A food containing an unnatural addition of sugar causes the release of dopamine. You feel the urge to eat even if you are not hungry.
The pancreas’s task is to control the level of sugar in the blood. Carbohydrates (sugar) provide energy that powers the muscles and organs of the body. However, excessive sugar may cause overload and damage to internal organs. As a consequence, muscle and nerve damage may occur.
When the sugar intake is greater than the body’s requirement, it is converted into fat, which is collected for later use. Excessive fat deposition is detrimental to liver cells, because eventually it can lead to diseased body fat. In this situation, the liver produces the connective tissue that surrounds the organ. This process is called cirrhosis or liver fibrosis.
Another factor that causes the death of liver cells is clogging of veins and blood vessels, and this results in limited blood supply to the liver cells. The cause of fatty liver may also be excessive development of unfriendly microorganisms in the small intestine and increased intestinal permeability. Harmful bacteria produce ethanol and lipopolysaccharides, which are the cause of oxidative stress and cause inflammation leading to fatty liver.
Steatohepatic disease is the most common liver disease in modern society. Chronic liver damage can lead to serious diseases: jaundice, cirrhosis of the liver and severe mutation of its tissues. Taking care of liver health is very important!
What are the healthier alternatives to sugar?
Addiction to sugar is possible to overcome. A good start is to find healthier substitutes for your favorite sweets and drinks. Give up eating breakfast for sweet cereal products. Instead, eat a meal rich in protein that will give you energy for a long time. Do not buy snacks in vending machines – instead, eat yoghurt, almonds or slices of apple with peanut butter. If you can not refrain from an unhealthy snack, eat one cake and get rid of remorse. Only consistency is needed to get away from the sweet addiction.
The acceptance of probiotics and prebiotics, in addition to direct benefits in the intestines, also results in the improvement of the liver – among others, heals inflammation of the liver.
Use DIGESTIVE+++ that supports the colonization of the intestines by beneficial bacterial microflora. It guarantees strengthening the body’s defenses and improving overall health. The prebiotic formula also supports other types of beneficial bacteria that support not only digestion, but also have a beneficial effect on the mucous membrane of the digestive tract and internal organs, including the liver and stomach.
An important advantage of DIGESTIVE+++ is the linseed oil content. Linseed oil has been shown to help people suffering from inflammation of the intestines and digestive tract problems. Linseed oil also acts as a mild, natural laxative and prevents constipation.
