SUGARS COMPONENTS OF SEABUCTHORN
Glucose:54,2% of total sugar Fructose:45,4% of total sugar Xylose:45mg/g of total sugar
Glucose is a major component of Himalaya Seabuckthorn.When ingested orally, glucose is absorbed through the intestines and is then reabsorbed by the kidneys by way of a specific transporter (member proteins) that enters blood-tissue barriers.The nature of glucose is that the sugar can be absorbed readily while quickly distributed to all parts of the body through the bloodstream.
Many factors influence glucose absorption. One is meal composition, rate of gastric emptying, intestinal hormones and intestinal blood flow. When carbohydrates retard proper glucose absorption, some known disorders follow such as diarrhea, gas, bloating, and other discomforts that in turn disorient digestive enzymes.
Similar with the other glyconutrients, glucose is excreted through the kidneys via the urine. Glucose found in urine is minimal since 98-percent of filtered glucose is recycled in the proximal tubules of the kidneys. Marked increase in glucose (up to seven fold) is highly pronounced with diabetics since blood glucose levels exceed those recycled by the kidney transporter. Glucose in newborns or infants is excreted as complex carbohydrates found in stool.
Since it is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, hospitals, athletes and sports enthusiasts find practical use for glucose since it serves as a potent energy source, thereby addressing questions about muscular fatigue. While normal amounts of glucose enhances memory functions, stimulates calcium absorption and increases intra-cellular communication; excessive amounts (glucose) can raise insulin levels that could trigger obesity and diabetes while a drop in the regular volume of glucose in the body can cause hypoglycemia and insulin shocks or diabetic coma.
Glucose is essential to proper brain function as clinical research show. However, when there is abnormal glucose metabolism, disorders such as depression, manic depression, anorexia and bulimia becomes apparent. Moreover, reduced levels of glucose were often observed with patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease, much lower than any other brain malfunction malady mentioned above, that may have been a consequence of a stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. Experts suggest for patients take a 75-gram glucose supplement to increase performance in memory drills and to be able to perform a wide range of cognitive tasks.
Once glucose is absorbed into the liver, it reduces the secretion of glucagons that promotes increased glucose intake of muscles and fat tissue cells. When chewable glucose tablets were administered to a smoker, it reduced significantly the urge to smoke, a pattern revealing the gluco-regulation link to cigarette and Nicotine cravings. In other research work, clinical scientists discovered that the same theory is applicable even with alcoholics.
In terms of glucose consumption, North Americans top the list with an average consumption rate that is above 4 times the recommended limit. Over consumption of this essential sugar suppresses the immune system and drastically reduces the body's ability to fight diseases.
How much glucose is required by the body to survive? The answer will depend on the requirement pertinent with an individual. There are activities that may need more such as alcohol intake, antibiotics or microbial foods taken, and metabolic energy requirement. But one thing is sure, only a few are ever deficient in glucose
FRUCTOSE COMPENSATES FOR THE ENERGY LOSSES DUE TO THE STRESS
Fructose has the advantage of improving the absorption of most minerals in the beverage HILLBERRY. Moreover, it also has the benefit of having a very low glycemic index (less than pasta), and therefore not to disrupt brutally glycemia
His place in the diet of any athlete is well defined: His greatest interest is to compensate for energy losses due to stress in the hours before an event, while ensuring a stable glycemic control.
Indeed, we know that the nervousness and anxiety engendered by the competition may initiate a damaging reserves hepatic glycogen. However, fructose allows the re-synthesis of these reserves without risk of hypoglycemia reaction.
Since it does not destabilize blood sugar and therefore does not insulin secretion, fructose can also be used during your physical activity on an empty stomach, because it does not impedes the mobilization of fatty acids.
The fructose content in drinking HILLBERRY also has an interest in the effort because it improves energy intake of drinks by completing inputs glucose
XYLOSE (45mg/g SBK JUICE) IS AN ELEMENT IMPORTANT TO CELLULAR COMMUNICATION
At the jejunum area of the small intestine, xylose is absorbed by a mechanism entirely different from that of glucose. Moreover, Xylose absorption is not age dependent, although from medical tests it appears that children exhibit slower absorption rates especially when taken orally. As Xylose enters the bloodstream, it is quickly distributed to the liver; metabolized and distributed to tissues dependent on said nutrient for its formation, including the kidneys, fat, and muscles.
Upon ingestion of xylose, the body retains 75-percent of the dose, while the remaining 25-percent is excreted through the urine within five hours. The amount of excreted Xylose however increases with the frequent consumption of fruits and vegetables. This suggests that Xylose competes with Aldopentoses (a type of monosaccharide; each with five carbon atoms) in the reabsorptive transport to the kidneys.
Failure of the body to absorb Xylose may result to any of the following disorders including persistent diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, suspected malnutrition and general weakness. A medical test is therefore necessary to help evaluate the nutrient absorption troubles of the intestines or from those that may be due to a disease of the pancreas.
Normal values indicate D-xylose to be found in the blood or urine; and are therefore being absorbed by the intestines. Nevertheless, abnormal results may be an indication of Crohn's disease, Giardia Lamblia infestation, hookworm infestation, Lymphatic obstruction, Radiation Enteropathy, small intestinal bacterial over growth, celiac disease (sprue), viral gastroenteritis, and Whipple's Disease.
How is the test on xylose deficiency performed?
An initial blood and urine sample is taken, but it can only provide conclusive results if administered following thorough preparation. Initially, the patient is not allowed to eat or drink anything (water included) for at least 8 to 12 hours prior to the test. It is also recommended for patients who are about to undergo the test to resist the intake of any drug and perform a few exercises before the test, for these can influence the test results.
Patients will be required to drink a mixture of 25 grams of D-xylose in 8 ounces of water. After 2 hours, a blood sample is collected and if necessary another blood sample is again derived after 5 hours. Urine excreted within a five-hour period is collected for the test. This test when completed should provide conclusive evidence that the intestine has the ability to absorb D-xylose, an indication that nutrients are properly distributed throughout the body.
What are the risks encountered in a D-xylose deficiency test?
Risks are only pronounced in blood sampling and may vary depending on an individual's state of health. Some may experience excessive bleeding; others may feel lightheaded or even faint; hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin) is also possible; or an infection (a slight risk anytime a cut is made on the skin); and multiple punctures to locate the veins.
D-xylose malabsorption syndrome is evident with individuals or children who eat too much but fail to gain any weight despite feeding patterns. This symptom should merit a trip to the laboratory for a thorough check-up.
