Fructose vs. Glucose and the Effect on Appetite

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) just published a study which compared the effects of fructose vs glucose on the brain in order to determine if there was an association between fructose consumption and weight gain.

Fructose is found in fruit and it is also found in some processed foods, especially as high fructose corn syrup. Fructose is used as a sweetener and also as a stabilizer in processed foods.

The results of the study showed that glucose ingestion, but not fructose ingestion, reduced activation to the areas of the brain that regulate appetite and reward and it also increased brain to brain connections that were responsible for feelings of satiety. Fructose does not appear to affect the brain the same way as glucose; it does not appear to turn of the areas of the brain responsible for appetite. The authors note that this is probably because after fructose ingestions there is a of the reduced levels of insulin, the hormone responsible for satiety signaling.

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thank you!

      The feed works, the page you are transferred to is the actual feed. The user must add the feed address from the address bar to their feed reader. The page looks weird because it is in XML format. That how feeds are written. When a user adds the link to their feed reader They will not see that XML code.

  29. best cred says:
