TREHALOSE 2 22

“The sugar with a conscience “

What is Trehalose:  a crystalline disaccharide C12H22O11 that is found in various organisms (as fungi and insects), Trehalose is about half as sweet as sucrose, and is sometimes used as a sweetener in commercially prepared foods.

Over time scientist have found a way to extract Trehalose from Plant Life. It tastes just like sugar yet it doesn’t act like sugar. Your body breaks it down differently, it’s actually healthy.

Many of the  processed foods or frozen foods like freezy pops for children have Trehalose as the sweetener. Trehalose is  more conducive to heat and cold temperatures than table sugar.

What we understand from the science of Glycomics that cells communicate through sugar and proteins. Sugars are the (OS) operating system of the body. There are eight sugars found on the planet we call them Glyconutrients.

treWhat makes Trehalose so special is that it acts like a sugar but it’s not really a sugar like good old fashioned table sugar.  It’s a Disaccharide. Trehalose also has the added advantage of being an antioxidant

Trehalose is thought to form into a  gel phase as cells dehydrate, which prevents disruption of internal cell organelles, by effectively splinting them in position. Rehydration then allows normal cellular activity to be resumed without the major, lethal damage that would normally follow a dehydration/rehydration cycle. Trehalose is also present in the nutrition exchange liquid of hornets and their larvae. Trehalose is the major carbohydrate energy storage molecule used by insects for flight. One possible reason for this is that the glycosidic linkage of trehalose, when acted upon by an insect trehalase, releases two molecules of glucose, which is required for the rapid energy requirements of flight. This is double the efficiency of traditional  Glucose. As you know athletes love Glucose for energy. If insects us Trehalose for flight because it has  double the energy of Glucose what do you think Treahlose can do for athletes?

Because Trehalose protects the cells from extreme temperature changes by hydrating the cells it acts as an age reverser or beauty enhancer for several cosmetic manufacturers. There is no question that Trehalose protects the cells from stress.
Scientists have found that Trehalose

Improves Sustained Energy
Improves Cellular Hydration
Improves Brain Function
Enhances Memory
Stimulates Calcium Absorption
Regulates Insulin and Glucose Levels in obese men.
Enhances cellular communication
Lowers body odor

So what does one do with Trehalose?
You   could treat it like sugar and replace white table sugar with Trehalose.
You could drop a teaspoon or two of Trehalose in your coffee and tea or in your daily smoothie to sweeten it up.
It looks like sugar and it sure does taste like sugar.
That’s why we call it the sugar with a conscience.

So is Trehalose safe to use for a diabetic?

The simple answer is yes. The more complex answer is still yes but with an explanation. For the body to convert Trehalose back into Glucose an enzyme is required. This enzyme is called TrehalASE. It is found in a very small region in the small intestine and there is a finite amount produced by the body. Because it takes the food we eat 4 hours, on average, to reach the small intestine where Trehalase is found any Trehalose will have been fully mixed with food and there is only a small amount entering the small intestine at any time.
