Was tipped off to the following article:
The contention is increased fructose consumption leads to increased absorption of stuff in the gut (nutrients + other things) which triggers increased risks of certain cancers and obesity. I know there has been a lot of investigation on this topic.
I wonder if that increased absorption is something we can benefit from? The report indicates the this extra absorbability allows both nutrients and the resident microbiotics more access to the bloodstream and the later triggers an inflammatory liver response. Also, I only saw “HFCS” in the article and (I did not read very deeply but took a quick skim of it, I’ll read before I rack out this evening) did not see straight up regular fructose in fruit or powdered form. I suspect that is significant.
I wonder if this applies to protein absorption too? My guess is yes it would but of course that is just a guess and would require another study.
Is there benefit here? Or is that yet to be determined?
