Is D-Ribose a Healthy Sugar

I want to try it because it’s supposed to help fibromyalgia, so d-ribose is a sugar, but it’s a very unique sugar. For years, I’ve used d-ribose in my patients with very bad congestive heart failure as a formula part of a formula to keep them off my heart transplant list, because d-ribose can be used by your mitochondria and by your muscles to generate energy.

A lot easier than simple glucose, it seems to have a direct ability to be used by mitochondria, the little energy organelles in your cells to produce energy, and so I’m a huge fan of d-ribose. It does have a bit of sweetness, so you can use it as a sugar but trying to use it as your sugar you’re going to have to use a lot of it to get the sweetness you want, but as an energy product as a way of increasing Your mitochondria it’s great now: why might it help fibromyalgia? Because fibromyalgia in part is a mitochondrial problem.

Your mitochondria don’t produce energy efficiently in your nerves, and so d-ribose is a great way to increase the interpret energy production in your mitochondria. So absolutely it’s a great great product. What is the best source of DHA for vegetarians? Now I’ve talked about this a lot in the past, but it bears repeating since the question comes up over and over over again, as you know, I was a professor at Loma, Linda University for many many years and it’s a vegetarian and vegan institution.

So I have a quite a large practice in vegans and vegetarians. Now DHA is one of the two long-chain three fats, the other one is EPA. Now, normally we can take short chain. Omega-3 fats like are in flaxseed, for instance, and we should have a system of enzymes that can couple one short chain: omega-3 fat with another and then another and then another, and you get eventually a very long chain of omega-3 fats, which are DHA and EPA.

Now our brain uses DHA about half of the fat in our brain is DHA and, interestingly enough, the hippocampus, the memory areas of our brain are full normally of DHA and there’s very good evidence that the more DHA you have the bigger your memory, centers are, and Quite frankly, the bigger your brain is. Unfortunately, our enzyme system in humans is lousy for taking short chain omega-3 fats and making DHA we’re not a fish.

The fish has an incredibly efficient system of taking short chain, omega-3 fats and making them long chains. That’s why fish oil is full of DHA and EPA, and not so much of the other little short chains and I’ve studied DHA levels in probably thousands of vegans now and they’re, profoundly deficient in DHA, even though either taking flax, oil capsules and they’re taking flax meal. That’s because they don’t convert it, so the good news is.

We now have a number of companies that make algae based DHA, there’s even now, some that have algae based, DHA and EPA, and so now there’s no excuse for a vegan to be deprived of the proper amount of DHA. And having said that, you want to try to yep about a thousand milligrams of DHA per day into your diet, a lot of the vegan DHA s or 500 milligrams. So two of them will do it. But whenever you buy the package, read the back look for serving size, sometimes they’ll try to fool you and they’ll say to serving sizes too, and then you look down below and you see 500 milligrams say.

Oh, you know that’s great. I there’s 500 milligrams. Well, you’d have to take four of those to get a thousand milligrams, so thousand milligrams of algae-based DHA. The problem is solved. Okay number three are pumpkins safe to eat. If I pressure-cook them, the answer is absolutely in fact, as you probably know, in general, the lectins in squashes are in the peel and the seeds, so the flesh itself doesn’t have many lectins I’ll.

Give you an example. I was in Europe two weeks ago and at every breakfast, in France and in Italy there were peeled and deseeded cucumbers, which is part of the squash family. Nowhere did, I ever see a cucumber with peels and seeds intact, because these people are smart enough because they’re taking away the lectin can containing components of that so in general, they’re pretty safe. If you peel and de-seed them, but there’s one proviso, if you’re trying to lose weight or if you’re, a diabetic or if you have metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance or pre-diabetes, the squash family in general have a lot of sugar in them.

So it’s not a free food, even if you do the right things, so it ought to be something. That’s more of a special treat, maybe on the weekends may be combined with things that that sugar content is going to be blunted like a FAT. So but yes, pressure-cooking is perfectly safe for squashes, but just be careful if you’re a diabetic or pre-diabetic. It’s not one of your best foods.
