The Biggest Myth Around Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)

Metabolic syndrome is a combination of several conditions, including:

• Abdominal obesity

• High blood pressure

• High blood glucose

• High triglycerides

• Insulin resistance


• High uric acid

metabolic syndrome is typically treated with a lot of medications, and there isn’t a well-known cause.

I believe metabolic syndrome is a protective mechanism. But it’s not protective anymore.

Let’s first take a look at glucose and fructose. When you consume glucose, receptors all over your body metabolize it. Fructose is a unique type of sugar that can only be metabolized by the liver. Fructose produces more fat and enhances the fat genes more than other types of sugar.

Early humans may have infrequently consumed fructose in fruit and honey as a survival mechanism for various reasons. These reasons that used to be beneficial are now contributing factors to metabolic syndrome.

We don’t need fructose for survival anymore—in fact, it’s hurting us. If you have problems related to metabolic syndrome, try avoiding fructose in all forms.
