Insulin resistance is at the root of metabolic
problems. Things go awry, when cells that are meant to respond to insulin, don’t.
Now, this in and of its self is a little odd. There are few situations where NICE food is
rejected. Granted, sometimes when you are FULL to capacity, you may reluctantly, decline
MORE food. But, you have to be SERIOUSLY full, to do this. And, there is always PLAN B. Store
it, for later. So that insulin resistant cells, turn up their noses at FOOD, is a little odd.
But, if accepting that delivery is going to cause a crisis, it‘s clearly the right thing
to do. After all, burning sugar is a messy business. The process creates reactive oxygen
species, that true to their name, REACT. And these REACTIONS can leave a lot of destruction
in their wake. So being insulin resistant is a defensive move. Knowing when to say NO,
is healthful. For the cells at least, leaving the glucose on the outside, is rather problematic,
for the blood vessels. But, it is NOT that simple. A working muscle NEEDS fuel. Not being
fuelled up, leaves it pap and listless. And this is what happens, in the insulin resistant.
The muscles are often too tired to move. So, why do cells CHOOSE to ignore the arrival
of the body’s equivalent of Santa Claus. Could it be, because they’re SICK OF THE
HYPE ? A group of Indian researchers have demonstrated, that cells in the lab, are definitely
turned off, by too much Christmas. Join us for this episode of BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY
TV, as find out how false advertising, too much Christmas, contributes to insulin resistance.

HELPING YOU, battle sugar gremlins, heffa-lumps & other health horribles, through BETTER BODY
CHEMISTRY. Remember, small things can make a big difference to your health. Since cells
don’t actually celebrate Christmas, it took a little bit of imagination to simulate it.
The researchers started off with Chinese hamster ovary cells which have undergone a little
engineering, so that they had the insulin stimulated glucose gate (GLUT4). The gate
was a glow in the dark gate, which allowed the researchers to see it. The team was particularly
interested in tracking the whereabouts of the glucose gate. Now under normal conditions,
the glucose gates are buried deep within the cell. But, when insulin knocks on the door,
announcing that he has a sugar delivery, there is a mad scramble to move the gate to the
outside. Once it is docked and fused, the cell can proceed to accept the sugar delivery.
In the insulin resistant, the arrival of this gate is held up. This interferes with the
sugar deliveries, creating sugar troubles. It is all very civilized. But, what happens
when insulin arrives, without gifts ? This is what the team simulated. They did this,
but manipulating the living conditions of the lab cells. Four scenarios were created……
Cells either grew in a low sugar environment, the sugar was set at 6.5 mM or they grew in
a high sugar environment, the sugar was set at 20 mM. Father Christmas , aka insulin,
was around to spread the Christmas cheer or he wasn’t. The laboratory Christmas season
lasted 10 cell cycles. The cells were put into ordinary medium for a few hours. And
then an insulin response assay was performed on all of the cells. To gauge the response,
the whereabouts of the glucose gate was carefully tracked. Only one group of cells failed to
respond to insulin. No the non-responders were not those subject to HIGH sugar levels
– these guys were fine. They responded quite normally, despite being awash in sugar. Kinda
a blows the theory, the cells are shutting up shop, because they are TOO FULL ! The non-responders
were the cells that had been continuously short changed by insulin. He promised gifts,
but failed to deliver ! Cells don’t like false advertising. No one does. Remember the
story of the boy who cried wolf ? If a hard working muscle cell, is continually woken
up in the middle of the night, expecting a sugar delivery and NOTHING happens. He’s
going to be upset. He’s going to be stop responding i.e. become insulin resistant.
It’s NATURAL. So when does false advertising happen in your body ? Well, every time you
use an artificial sweetener. Receptors in the tongue, detect the sugar. They’re excited
and they tell EVERYONE. Insulin is dispatched…………….. so the groceries can be put away. But, there
are NO groceries. It was false advertising. Be cautious, artificial sweeteners may be
calorie free, but they do have consequences. Give this video a thumbs up, if you agree.
But this is not the only time false advertising happens. False advertising is an everyday
occurrence in someone with metabolic syndrome. The problem is not just about high sugar levels,
insulin levels are high, morning, noon and night. This is why reining in insulin is critical.
