Sugar Truths and Myths – What You Need to Know

Sugar Truths and Myths – What You Need to Know

October 14, 2023

This week, on A Different Perspective, Dr. Patrick Flynn covers the question of whether sugar is inherently bad for you. Doc cuts through oversimplifications to reveal key insights everyone should know. This myth-busting talk covers:

  • The biology of various sugars – glucose, fructose, sucrose, and more. Not all sugars are equal in terms of absorption and impact.
  • Why “good carbs vs bad carbs” is misleading.
  • Longer sugar chains like polysaccharides are harder to break down and, therefore, there’s less glucose absorption. Why does that matter? Doc covers it!
  • How to lower sugar absorption through co-ingesting fats or fiber.
  • How high-sugar holidays impact immune function. The flu is not seasonal, the only difference is how our bodies are set up to respond to it.

Get the full sugar story – the science, the nuance, and the practical health applications. Learn why and how Doc suggests the “no sugar” month of January, and why it’ll change your health. Watch now!
