“Why no sweets with vitamin c? Just curious as I take my C and lysine with 2 oz of pom juice.”
I’ll let my fingers do most of the talking here to answer this question!
This person has a High LDL-P reading since it’s known this form of LDL which is usually smaller particles also has a affinity to carry triglycerides (tri’s) therefore reducing the amount of tri’s will also lower the production of this form of LDL. So first let’s look at were the tri’s come from and what is needed to produce them.http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/convers ... -2218.html
So we see that eating or consuming high carb foods (sugars) can and do blend in with fats to form tri’s. Now we take V-C and add it to this picture and what happens?https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/60/5/735/4732022
We see that taking a good dose of V-C now blunts the production of insulin which in turn means that now with the consumption of sugars there is a increase dose of sugars circulating. Which the body must do something with it so it stores and utilizes it. It also make’s more available to form with fats to form tri’s.
But the sugars and V-C also compete for transporters into the system and usually the sugars win! Which means less of the V-C enters the system when sugars are present. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10613768
So I believe one can see taking sugars in any form is adding a competitive substance to getting the V-C into the system and getting it to where it’s needed. So it’s best especially when you are already exhibiting signs of high tri’s to give some space in time between the consumption of these two products. Then you’ll have the benefits both can bring!!
Hope this helps in your understanding of this process!
