If sugar is harmful to our health, scientists warn us that fructose is even more dangerous. The supply, for example, may be the result of consuming drinks sweetened with frucose rather than glucose. It turns out that the latter can worsen insulin sensitivity, as well as fat metabolism, and this worsens the heart risk.


According to the observations of experts, the use of glucose and fructose within about 25% of the daily caloric intake leads to a similar weight gain, but in the second - the increase is mainly due to visceral obesity. The latter is closely correlated with the poor lipid profile and insulin resistance.


These features, which are also part of the metabolic syndrome, certainly worsen the risk of the heart, but little is known about its condition in the long run.
