  • Tea inhibits gluconeogenesis?

    Well, one of its constituents seems to have that effect.

    First, green tea: EPIGALLOCATECHIN-3-GALLATE (EGCG), A GREEN TEA POLYPHENOL, SUPPRESSES HEPATIC GLUCONEOGENESIS THROUGH 5

    And then, oolong tea: Unbound MEDLINE : Effects of oolong tea on gene expression of gluconeogenic enzymes in the mouse liver and in rat hepatoma H4IIE cell

    This is interesting. For people who want to stay in deep ketosis, controlling excess gluconeogenesis that can actually take someone out of ketosis would be extremely useful.

    Even for someone who isn't in ketosis, less gluconeogenesis means lower blood sugar, less insulin spike, and more protein able to be used for muscle building.

    Finally, for someone fasting, less gluconeogenesis means more muscle spared. So what already small amount you are losing for glucose production becomes even less!

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

    How do you get glycogen to your muscles in the absence of glucose in the diet without gluconeogenesis?
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

      It doesn't STOP it completely or anything, it just down regulates gluconeogenesis a little bit. If you're eating very low carb you don't need much more glycogen than just to fill your muscles anyhow, which doesn't take a lot, so lowering the level of gluconeogenesis going on can help keep you from producing more than you need.

          Decaf?

          Although the antioxidant levels in decaf tea are never as good.

            this is great to learn...not just for people going after ketosis, but for diabetics trying to control blood sugars.

              I think coffee does the same. But isn't that due to the caffeine in it?
              Take a walk on the wild side.
