How fructose contributes to obesity

According to a new study from Weill Cornell Medicine, fructose is a significant obesity factor. Take a moment to learn about this study as part of your ongoing weight loss education with Phentermine pills. 

Structural Differences

The study was published in the journal Nature and details how the structural differences in fructose increase the obesity risk.

“Fructose is structurally different from other sugars like glucose, and it gets metabolized differently,” said the study’s senior author Dr. Marcus DaSilva Goncalves, an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism and an endocrinologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. “Our research has found that fructose’s primary metabolite promotes the elongation of villi and supports intestinal tumor growth.”

Mice Observations

According to first author Samuel Taylor, a Tri-Institutional M.D.-Ph.D. Program student in the above doctor’s lab, consuming fructose makes evolutionary sense for mammals, but is no longer a necessity.

“In mammals, especially hibernating mammals in temperate climates, you have fructose being very available in the fall months when the fruit is ripe,” he said. “Eating a lot of fructose may help these animals to absorb and convert more nutrients to fat, which they need to get through the winter.”

Adds Dr. Goncalves, “Fructose is nearly ubiquitous in modern diets, whether it comes from high-fructose corn syrup, table sugar, or from natural foods like fruit,” he said. “Fructose itself is not harmful. It’s a problem of overconsumption. Our bodies were not designed to eat as much of it as we do.”

Research on the subject will continue.

“We’re hoping to find a way to repurpose them to reduce fat absorption,” Dr. Goncalves said of the enzyme responsible for producing fructose-1-phosphate. For more about quick weight loss with Phentermine 37.5mg, please contact today.
