  1. Cholesterol

    The truth about dietary cholesterol Thanks to some long-standing bad science , there’s a persistent misconception that foods high in high-cholesterol will raise blood cholesterol levels. However, a growing body of research is showing that dietary cholesterol (the cholesterol in foods) may not affect the cholesterol that is in your blood. Researchers are beginning to understand in greater depth that the relationship between cholesterol and the body is extremely complicated and that it may be genes that determine cholesterol levels. People process cholesterol differently, so some people may be more vulnerable to cholesterol-rich diets, while others are not. In fact, studies suggest that only about 30% of people are particularly susceptible to the effects of dietary cholesterol on blood cholesterol levels. What does this all mean for you? Simply, it means you should go ahead and enjoy foods such as eggs, shell fish, full-fat dairy products and grass-fed beef in moderation. While high in cholesterol, these are also among the healthiest and most nutritious foods out there.

  2. How you really process sugar

    How you really process sugar We know sugar is bad for us. More than causing weight gain, sugar triggers inflammation, oxidation and glycation – factors that lead to disease. Different types of sugar can also impact the body differently. If you’re looking to cut out added sugars to your diet, here’s what you need to know about the differences. Fructose Fructose is a type of sugar that is found in fruits, vegetables, and honey. It is also found in abundance in processed foods and drinks in the form of high-fructose corn syrup. Fructose is unique because unlike glucose and sucrose, it is not the preferred energy source for your muscles or brain and is not metabolised in cells but can only be processed in the liver. It is more fat-producing than glucose. A diet high in fructose (especially in high-fructose corn syrup) can strain the liver, increase blood levels of uric acid, and disturb body fat regulation. Glucose Glucose is the simplest form of sugar and a sugar that is most easily metabolised by the body. It is also the body’s preferred energy source. Glucose triggers your insulin response and this insulin signals your cells to absorb glucose for energy. Your body processes most carbohydrates you eat into glucose, either to be used immediately for energy or to be stored in the muscles or in the liver as a fat called glycogen for later use. Maltose Maltose is two glucose units joined together. Made from glucose, it is processed by the body in the same way. Sucrose Sucrose is simply common table sugar, made up of 50% glucose and 50% fructose. In the body, fructose and glucose are processed accordingly. The bottom line: We can’t escape all sugar. Natural sugars – found naturally in small amounts in whole foods – has its place in some healthy diets such as in moderate low-carb, paleo and keto diets. The key is to check for added sugars – especially for high-fructose corn syrup – and know what we’re really doing to our bodies.

    I started on Xndo in early February this year after finding out that I have fatty liver and am at risk of developing serious health problems. I turned to Xndo to regain health. I ate Xndo meals for breakfast and lunch every day and had Xndo milk tea or healthy bars during the day as snacks. Xndo Platinum2™, X-Fat™ and Xndo carbohydrate blocking drinks also helped me continue to be socially active. Whenever I met my friends for meals, I’d use them to reduce my carbohydrate intake.  Ever since I started on Xndo, my sugar cravings have ceased. I have also seen an improvement in my fatty liver condition. Xndo’s meal solutions – together with regular exercise – has also helped me lose 10kg. I am a much-healthier 62kg now ~ Peter
