It sounds dreadfully too good to be true right? But this what the latest research has to say. A revolutionary new way to be slim and for better health.
Honey the most ideal liver fuel
Can’t sleep through the night? Sleep is active energy driven, when we sleep our body goes to work. Going to bed with depleted liver activates the stress hormones which hinders the glucose metabolism, fat metabolism and causes your body to gain weight.
The liver works hard to repair the body during rest. So, which one of you know that you have enough fuel to do the repair. This fuel is known as glycogen.
On an average adult liver stores about 75 grams of glycogen and your body consumes 10 grams of glycogen per hour. If you eat regularly, it won’t be a problem. But skipping meals can be risky.
This means that if you eat your meals at 7pm, your glycogen level will almost deplete by 12pm. So, if you go to bed with a depleted liver, the brain thinks that you are hungry and forces the ASH (Adrenal Stress Hormones) to create new glucose.
If you want to prevent your liver from further depletion eat honey before going to bed, it provides adequate fuel for the liver overnight. Honey restocks the liver without being a burden on the digestive system and supplies liver glycogen which our brain needs during our 7-8 hours of fast when we are asleep.
Honey additionally contributes to the release of melatonin, which is the hormone required for the recovery and rebuilding of the body tissues. Melatonin is necessary for healthy cells.
Daily supplying your liver glycogen with honey, the ideal fuel will optimize your body metabolism.
