Fructose and enhanced lipid levels in the blood
Fructose absorbed by the body is metabolised only by the liver.
With larger quantities of fructose, the liver generates triglycerides in the course of energy storage, deposits a part in the liver itself and releases the rest for circulation. With a reduction in the absorption of fructose, the enhanced concentration of triglycerides also decreases.
Excessive absorption of fructose has two consequences primarily:
- Increase in the value of triglycerides in the body
- and, possibly, non-alcoholic fatty liver
