In this video, we’re going to talk about how to make up the damage from eating refined carbohydrates. I’m talking about things like bread, pasta, cereal, biscuits, waffles, pancakes, crackers, etc.

The first question is, what damage do these carb-rich foods cause? When you consume refined carbs, you cram a tremendous amount of fuel into the mitochondria. This makes them overloaded with electrons.

At the same time, because we’re talking about refined carbs (as opposed to natural vegetable carbs), you don’t get the benefits of antioxidants and nutrients that should be there to protect against oxidation and free-radicle damage.

Since the mitochondria can’t utilize these refined carbs, many oxidative byproducts and free radicles are produced. This is what causes damage in your body after having carbs. In turn, you will experience microvascular inflammation, which affects the retinas, kidneys, heart, and entire vascular and nervous systems.

How can you make up this damage? Antioxidants are the key to reducing damage due to consuming refined carbs.

Plants are the richest source of antioxidants. Seafood, organ meats, and nutrients such as selenium, vitamin E, vitamin C, and coenzyme Q10 are also great sources of powerful antioxidants.

Do not get your antioxidants from synthetic sources. Also, avoid omega-6 fatty acids, grains, ice cream, chips, and animal products that were fed grains.

In summary, if you have refined carbs, make sure you also have plenty of antioxidant-rich foods to counteract some of the effects.
