Reverse Fructose Damage With Tea

Several studies have shown that consuming fructose, especially when magnesium levels are low, can drastically increase inflammation in the body, raise blood pressure, cause insulin resistance (Type 2 diabetes), and worsen atherosclerosis.

Fructose in the diet is also the leading cause of fatty liver disease.

New studies are showing that compounds found in green and white tea can counteract several of the harmful effects of fructose consumption.

The tea compound epicatechin was found to increase nitric oxide levels within blood vessels (the good nitric oxide) and counteract insulin resistance induced by fructose within blood vessels.

This lowers blood pressure, improves blood flow through vital organs and tissues and reduces inflammation.

White and green tea contain the highest levels of epicatechin, with the highest levels being in white tea.

Hesperidin also selectively increases nitric oxide within blood vessels, and silymarin was found to counteract the harmful effects of fructose by reversing insulin resistance and reducing fatty deposits in the liver.
