Glucose, Fructose, and the Brain

Based on the number of questions floating around, it appears that many people are confused about fructose, glucose, and what works best for the brain. Let’s start with glucose. Glucose is the major source of energy for muscles and many other body’s processes. It is the preferred source of energy for the brain and the nervous system, When glucose levels are low, decision-making, critical thinking, willpower, and self-control can be impaired. As with many things in life, however, there are healthier sources for glucose and unhealthier sources. Naturally the brain and nervous tissue tends to function better when they receive healthier sources of glucose. So, on this Valentine's Day for 2018 you might want to think of a little gift or surprise that involves unhealthier forms of glucose. Just saying . . .More tomorrow.
