NOT SO SWEET

Dr Marilyn Glenville runs us through the negative impact refined sugar can have on fertility levels, and explains how to replace the white stuff with the right stuff.

Refined sugar in any form provides empty calories; it has no nutritional value whatsoever. To protect and improve male and female fertility, it is essential to eat foods which contain good levels of nutrients such as zinc and selenium, so sugar is a big nutritional no-no. Even worse than that, because sugar is devoid of nutrients, your body has to use other nutrients stored in your system in order to digest the sugar. So, not only are you getting absolutely no vital vitamins and minerals from the sugar, but your body is also losing valuable nutrients just by eating it. Hence sugar is a negative double whammy on the nutritional front and can actually create nutritional deficiencies, which will have an impact on fertility. It is important to clarify that this refers to the refined sugar added to food and drink and not to the naturally occurring sugar in foods such as fruit, vegetables and grains.
