Avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup!

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) – developed in the 80’s – involves a complex chemical process that turns cornstarch into fructose. This processed fructose, unlike glucose, can only be broken down by the liver and causes cellular inflammation and oxidative damage to the body and is linked to hyperinsulinemia, obesity, insulin resistance and mineral deficiency – all which can negatively impact fertility.  HFCS (also seen on labels as glucose/fructose) – like trans fats – are found in a wide variety of processed and fast foods, including sweetened beverages.
