Sugar has gotten a bad wrap recently. With constant information being thrown around social media and influencers following certain diets, people have started to demonize sugar.
But, people seem to be confusing sugar-free with REFINED sugar-free. Refined sugar refers such ingredients as cane sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, or processed beet sugar that cause a rapid and significant increases in blood sugar and inflammation in the body.
However, the “sugar” that comes from fruit which is found in a majority of our cold-pressed juices and raw honey is called fructose and/or glucose. These are digested with highly absorbable enzymes that efficiently cleanse the bloodstream.
Raw honey and fruit are highly anti-inflammatory and have some of the highest antioxidants in the world.
Some important facts to note are that natural sugars are not stored as fat like refined-sugars, does not cause a spike and crash of blood sugar and energy, and lastly, the glucose/fructose from fruit and raw honey does not aggravate health conditions.
In fact, they can heal health conditions because it causes the opposite effect on the body that refined sugar does by creating an inhospitable environment for pathogens and providing nourishment for the liver.
