eating protein causes the release of the hormone glucagon, which is a counter-regulatory hormone, an antidote that keeps insulin levels in check and normalizes blood sugar by raising of lowering it as needed. glucagon delivers glucose to your brain. most people are not aware that high blood sugar an elevated insulin have serious implications for increased degenerative brain diseases, including Alzheimer's.
in Alzheimer, there are abnormalities in how the brain metabolizes glucose (sugar), resulting in the overproduction of nerve damage, silent inflammation and free radicals and the formation of neurofibrillary tangles and gooey beta amyloid protein clusters that kill off brain cells.
each meal should have a perfect balance of the protein-to-carbohydrate ratio, which means you have a perfect balance of glucagon to insulin - a perfectly balanced intracellular communication system for robust body energy and smart, revitalized brainpower. if you keep blood insulin levels low, you burn body fat for energy and lose weight naturally.
