Raw honey, diabetes and complications of brain

Jul 14th 2014 at 9:37 PM

Brain problems, such as depression and Alzheimer's disease are the inevitable consequence of diabetes. According to new research, patients suffering from diabetes type 2 diabetes or insulin resistance, have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. The report noted that Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease - are two epidemics growing with terrifying pace worldwide.

The researchers compared the cognitive function of the brain were examined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound of the brain more than 700 people with type 2 diabetes and without it.

Those with diabetes, the results were less successful in some tests and had higher compression in certain areas of the brain that are responsible for managing mental performance and other cognitive functions.

What is the relationship between diabetes and brain problems? Diabetes causes multifaceted attack on the brain. One of them consists in the fact that the brain requires glucose more than the other cells in the body, it sometimes takes up to 50 percent of carbohydrates

, lead to its function into effect. The brain never sleeps and uses 20 percent of the body's energy. It also requires a constant supply of oxygen, which receives blood to normalize blood sugar levels. But diabetes is insufficient supply of glucose and oxygen to the brain

, thereby reducing the memory, while the nervous system is also endangered, causing glaucoma , numbness in hands and feet, as well as a large gap in thinking.

Effect of diabetes heart can also cause problems brain. How? Heart muscle work continuously and need glucose to make energy costs, but diabetes is characterized by impaired glucose metabolism, depriving the heart of an adequate supply of glucose to function optimally.

Consequently, the heart weakens, clogged artery plaques, and it harms his ability to deliver blood to other organs, including the brain.

About 80 percent of diabetics die of heart failure because diabetes reduces the level of thiamine in the body by as much as 76 percent.

Insufficient blood supply to the brain due to a weakened heart that deprives vital organs of oxygen and other essential nutrients, making diabetics vulnerable to depression and Alzheimer's disease; progressive neurological brain disease leads to irreversible

loss of neurons and memory. Heart failure can also cause heart attack and stroke, which often damage the brain.

Fluctuations in blood sugar - hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) also damage the brain. According to the study, high levels of sugar in the blood leads to dysfunction of memory and reduce the size of the hippocampus, the part of the brain is extremely important for learning and memory.

Insufficient sleep can cause diabetes , which also exacerbates the problems with sleep. Lack of sleep increases the level of proteins that create plaques that cause Alzheimer's disease. Diabetes also generates free radicals that accelerate aging, cataract and cause brain cell damage, which leads to memory loss.

But while diabetes and related brain problems defy traditional medicine, raw honey can protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease and depression.

How honey helps prevent depression and Alzheimer's disease?

Honey lowers blood sugar and reduces metabolic stress. Raw honey actually has a very significant stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels.

Fresh honey

Honey also promotes optimal brain function by strengthening the heart and improving blood circulation through the coronary arteries and veins,

ensuring adequate supply of blood glucose, oxygen and other essential nutrients to body cells. Rapid development of invert sugar, which contains copper, making it a desirable source of quick energy and at the same time, efficient pacemaker.

Raw honey increases the level of antioxidants, which protect against heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. The study also showed that raw honey can help prevent or dissolve blood clots, which often lead to stroke and heart attack.
Honey - this is the best food for the brain. If used in controlled doses for diabetics, the brain will receive an ample supply of glucose, because pre-digested sugars in honey does not require the action of insulin to reach the cells. Vital nutrients in the raw honey also include zinc,

magnesium and vitamin B, especially thiamine, important to promote efficient brain function, better memory and sharper mind.

In addition, raw honey is rich in potassium, electrolytes that conduct nerve impulses and neurotransmitters help the brain to work properly.

Raw honey is also rich in iron and B vitamins, including folic acid and thiamine, which guarantee optimal brain function, supplying oxygen to the brain and protecting it from harmful oxidants.

While Alzheimer's disease is characterized by a significant loss of acetylcholine, a key brain chemical memory, raw honey is a good source of acetylcholine.

Another sign of Alzheimer's disease is the formation of plaques in the brain, and honey is rich in antioxidants.
