When I run across information that I resonate with, I like to post it somewhere for future use.
Today I ran across this from Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, and I agree wholeheartedly, so I thought I would share here on MaggiesVitaminsBlog
Critical Clean Carbs or CCC
“Critical Clean Carbohydrates (CCC) is the name I have given to the healthy carbohydrates that provide our organs, tissues, muscles, and cells with the glucose they need to help us stay alive and thrive.
• Raw Honey
• Potatoes and sweet potatoes
• Winter squash
• Coconut water
The critical glucose we get from CCC:
• Protects the nervous system
• Stops the brain from shrinking
• Builds muscles
• Protects the heart
• Is vital for liver function
• Protects the adrenals
• Helps you cope with stress
• Is critical for healing
• Feeds every cell in the body
We all need CCC. Without glucose, we won’t stay alive. Unfortunately, so many people are dealing with low glucose and glycogen reserves and it’s affecting their health without them knowing. How do we run out of the liver’s glucose and its stored version, glycogen? An overabundance of stress to the liver, which can come from many different sources. Plus, even if you’re eating what seems like enough CCC, there’s also obstacles to glucose absorption, which almost everyone faces due to the diets we have grown up on and the way we are told to eat today, such as the hyper focus on including fats and eating a high-fat diet (which is synonymous with a high-protein diet). This way of eating blocks critical glucose absorption. “
I am keeping this post short today but feel free to do more research on this and also read my prior blogs posts on the importance of liver health. And be sure to eat lots of all of these foods mentioned. 🙂 And enJOY those CCC’S!
