Now is the time for the Pretzel villain. This loaf of bread with a knot in the middle, originated from Germany, although cute can also be dangerous, stay sharp!! Behind this disguise he hides a lot of wheat flour, margarine and sugar!! These ingredients can be harmful to our health!
Margarine contains trans fat that is horrible for our body!
It can rise up the bad cholesterol, increase the weight gain, cardiovascular diseases, etc..
Sugar, besides causing addiction, increases weight gain, triglycerides, blood glucoses. O açúcar além de causar vício ajuda tanto no ganho de peso, quanto aumento dos triglicerídeos, glicemia. Its excess may increase the risk of diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease.
Wheat isn’t good either because it has gluten.
It is a protein present in wheat, rye, barley and oats (because it’s processed in the same machinery). Because it is difficult to digest, can stimulate reactions of the immune system that can trigger various symptoms in the body.
In addition to the celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten can occur, causing symptoms such as: constipation alternating with diarrhea, colic and abdominal distension, joint pain (arthritis, arthrosis) and muscle pain, swelling, dry skin, severe hair loss, hyperactivity, etc..
In addition, studies show that excessive consumption of gluten can lead to the development of food addiction and aggression to intestinal villi.
