Reproductive Malfunction

Fertility and libido are directly tied to nutrition. Protein, essential fatty acids, and micronutrients at optimal levels create the best reproductive potential. On the other hand, starches do the opposite by displacing these nutrients. The diseases they produce also redirect the body’s resources to healing rather than reproduction. In addition, sugar from starch metabolizes into lipids (fat) that can deactivate the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) gene. When this gene is suppressed, the production of the sex hormones is adversely affected leading to infertility, polycystic ovaries, low sperm counts, uterine cancer, vascular disease and more.

• “When there’s too much sugar in the diet, the liver converts it to lipid…increased production of lipid shut down a gene called SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin), reducing the amount of SHBG in the blood. SHBG plays a key role in controlling the amount of testosterone and estrogen that’s available throughout the body…” Too much sugar turns off gene that controls the effects of sex steroids.

• “…there is a strong and negative correlation between fasting insulin level and SHBG…by interaction withteh IGF-1 receptors, insulin carries on its inhibitory activity on SHBG.” Pugeat, M., et al.
