Today, we’re going to talk about sugar and nutrients. I want to cover why sugar depletes nutrients. 

Why sugar depletes nutrients (as well as refined carbs, juices, and sodas):
In your energy factory called the mitochondria, there is an engine that involves fuel and oxygen. In order to burn glucose, there are essential cofactors or coenzymes that are basically the keys that start the engine. 

Essential cofactors and coenzymes:

• B1
• Zinc 
• Potassium
• Magnesium 
• Chromium 
• Manganese 
• Calcium 
• Other B vitamins 
• Vitamin C 

The above are essential for burning glucose. The process in the mitochondria can’t work without these nutrients. 

If you’re consuming pure glucose without these nutrients, your body will pull them from your reserves, and it’s going to start depleting you of these nutrients. 

Cane sugar and molasses both have nutrients, so you won’t deplete them. However, you will still have issues because of the glucose. 

What you really need to do, if you’re not already, is healthy keto with intermittent fasting.
