  • No More Sugar Coating: Sugar Hurts Your Immune System
    It's holiday season! Sugar intake isn't only thing that spikes this time of year. ‘Tis the season for cold, flu, and other respiratory infections, too. And while weight gain might be the first thing you worry about when it comes to sweet treats, too much sugar can also pose a serious threat to your immune system.

    The holidays are upon us, and there are more than just visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads. Sugary foods are everywhere you look. In fact, retail sales of sugar historically double during the month of December.

    But our sugar intake isn’t only thing that spikes this time of year. ‘Tis the season for cold, flu, and other respiratory infections, too. And while weight gain might be the first thing you worry about when it comes to sweet treats, too much sugar can also pose a serious threat to your immune system.   

    Researchers first discovered a correlation between sugar intake and  immunity in the early 1900s while studying glucose levels and infection frequency among diabetes sufferers. This was corroborated in later studies conducted at Loma Linda University in California, which found that diabetics’ neutrophils were more sluggish than normal (Challem 1997). Neutrophils are white blood cells: defenders of the immune system that are designed to attack and dispose of alien bodies, including bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.

    Researchers noted that after ingesting glucose, fructose, sucrose, honey—even orange juice—neutrophils exhibited a “significantly decreased capacity to engulf bacteria” in all test subjects (Sanchez, Reeser, et al. 1973). This impairment was strongest within the first two hours of eating sugar, but lingered on for a least five hours more. More recent studies have corroborated the diabetes-infection connection (Lin 2006).  

    But what about the rest of us? It turns out that the debilitating effects of sugar on neutrophil activity is not limited to those with diabetes. Studies have shown that even short-term hyperglycemia—more commonly known as a “sugar rush”—can affect all the major components of your body’s innate immune system and impair its ability to combat infection (Turina 2005). In other words, the more you indulge your sweet tooth, the greater your risk of getting sick.

    In the United States, the commercial food industry has been more than willing to satisfy America’s craving for sugar—so it’s no wonder that we’re collectively getting sicker. At the beginning of the 20th century, Americans consumed only about five pounds of sugar per year. In the 1950s, that number jumped to almost 110 pounds, and increased a further 39 percent by 2000 as consumption of corn sweeteners octupled, according the USDA.

    High fructose corn syrup was initially marketed as a healthful replacement for sugar; but in fact, the biological effects are the same. Not only do they completely lack nutritional value—no vitamins, protein, minerals, antioxidants, or fiber—they displace the healthier foods in our diets that do. And because they are such empty calories, we consume more than we need to. The same is true for artificial sweeteners, which trick your body into producing insulin. Once the insulin realizes there is no sugar to carry to your cells for energy, it sends a message to your body to eat more—even though you aren’t really hungry (Mawhinney 2011) .  

    But this displacement causes more than weight gain. Mineral deficiencies contribute to immune dysfunction by inhibiting all aspects of the system, including the body’s ability to  produce T-cells and raise effective antibodies. Magnesium, which is especially important to both our innate and acquired immune responses (Tam. 2003), can decrease incidence of respiratory infections (PDR. 2000); while zinc improves immune responses and may shorten the duration of the common cold (Haase 2009) (Bogden 2004) (Bondestam 1985). These and other microminerals are all displaced by sugar-laden fast foods (Milne 2000), which only increases risk of infection.

    Does this make all sugar evil? On the contrary, our body needs certain amounts of sugar—especially glucose—for energy. However, different sugars utilize different metabolic pathways and trigger different body responses. Glucose, a monosaccharide, triggers the release of insulin, which carries it to every cell in our body to be converted to energy. Fructose, on the other hand, gets processed by the liver, does not trigger insulin, and is more likely to be converted to fat. And sucrose (or table sugar) is a disaccharide containing both glucose and fructose, meaning metabolism will trigger both pathways.  So even though the amount of glucose in a slice of bread can be measured against an equal amount of table sugar, they have different effects on the body.

    Yes, it’s complicated—but the American Heart Association (and BodyBio) believe in one simple rule. Rather than deducing what kind of sugar is in it and how many calories it is, simply avoid foods that contain added sugar and stick to the sugar found in natural foods. Not only will you find it easier to maintain a healthy weight, you’ll be strengthening your immune system. And if you stick to the ADA’s recommendation of 100-150 calories per day, you can still enjoy this season’s holiday cookie.

  • What's Fishy About Fish Oil
    Of all the nutritional supplements that have caught on in the American market, perhaps none is more successful abundant than fish oil. In fact, American consumers spend over $1 billion annually on over-the-counter fish oil supplements, motivated by the promise of improved heart health and brain function. But are they really getting what they’re paying for? The simple answer is: probably not.

    Of all the nutritional supplements that have caught on in the American market, perhaps none is moreabundant than fish oil. In fact, American consumers spend over $1 billion annually on over-the-counter fish oil supplements, motivated by the promise of improved heart health and brain function. But are they really getting what they’re paying for?

    The simple answer is: probably not.

    Fish oils are a popular source of omega-3s, or  “healthy fat.” They are an important fatty acid group that can’t be produced by the body; instead, we must  get them from our diets. Depending on the molecular type, some omega-3s can be found in walnuts, and flax seeds; but the most popular and well known source is fatty fish, such as wild caught salmon or sardines. Omega-3s are important  nutrients in brain function and controlling inflammation, while deficiencies have been linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, and arthritis.

    For these reasons, fish oil has become a popular dietary supplement, marketed as an easy way to boost heart health and sharpen mental agility.  Food companies have  been quick to cash in, adding it to products including cereal, juice, and even milk. But as with many other vitamins, minerals, and complex molecules, the way that fish oil is extracted and packaged is essential to its holding nutritional value once ingested. This is where most fish oils on the market fall short.

    Diagnosing the problem is complicated. First, our bodies absorb naturally sourced omega-3s in different ways, involving different digestive and biochemical processes. Second, the process of extracting pure fish oil is exactly that: a process. Unlike squeezing the juice from an orange, acquiring oil from fish involves separating the omega-3s — namely, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) — from other proteins, fats, and heavy metals (like mercury).

    Filtering out these substances is technically difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Most American companies extract fish oil under high heat, up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit which oxidizes the fish oil and produces toxic aldehydes.

    Oxidation Affects Quality
    Most companies resort to molecular distillation to extract fish oils: an oxidized process that affects oil acidity, decreases the product’s shelf life, and is less effective in eliminating the volatile compounds found in the raw material. In order to bring fish oils to market with greater purity and integrity, BodyBio has developed a more sophisticated, non-oxidized refinement process using freeze dried material and high pressure equipment. Though more expensive to produce upfront, this method,  called supercritical fluid extraction, eliminates the damage caused by heat extraction.  It also converts DHA and EPA into smaller molecules to increase the concentration of each capsule. As a result, our Kirunal supplement offers pure, unoxidized oil with nearly three times the amount of DHA and EPA compared to most fish oils on the market, which contain 30% or less.

    It is worth noting that while omega-3s are an important part of our diets and cellular health, studies are mixed as to whether fish oil supplements work to actively prevent or lower risk factors for heart disease*. There is also evidence to suggest that introducing a surplus of omega-3s is into the diet — whether from foods or supplements — is in fact detrimental. Essential fatty acids, omega 6 and omega 3 need to be balanced.  If you feel that your diet may be omega-3 deficient, seek advice from a medical professional or dietician on whether a fish oil product could improve your health and wellness.
