Tip 154: Uric acid levels and fructose

An “unexplained” increase in uric acid levels can be attributed to too high of a fructose consumption. Elevated uric acid levels can also be now used an early indicator of metabolic syndrome. According to Nakagawa et al. (2006) and Johnson et al. (2007), the worldwide epidemic of metabolic syndrome correlates with an elevation in serum uric acid as well as a marked increase in total fructose intake ( coming from table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup). Fructose raises uric acid, and the latter inhibits nitric oxide bioavailability. The latter explaining the rise in erectile dysfunction.
Using products like Glucose Disposal Px and Fenuplex along with Insulinomics will help mitigate the damage of high sugar diets.
