Day 309- Nutrition Bites

A common misunderstanding is the effects of fruit on the metabolism. Many feel the sugar in fruit raises blood sugar too much. Actually, fruit delays sugar absorption in the intestines because of the fiber. In the long run, fruits provide us with correct sugars for glycosylation of cell membranes. Fruit also has more antioxidants than other nutrients, which help prevent our cells from oxidation and inflammation.

Fruit is an excellent natural sugar source. Today, I had a taste of my friend's wedding cake. The cake was too sweet. You can really train your taste buds. In America, we should work on training our taste buds to help eliminate the obesity epidemic.
