Simple Sugars and Elevated triglycerides levels Pose Risk for Heart Disease

Lisa Nelson Health Pro
  • Your simple sugar intake has a direct impact on triglyceride levels.  Elevated triglycerides levels are an independent risk factor for heart disease.


    Avoid foods that contain a high concentration of simple sugars.  Here are examples of foods to strictly limit:


    Soft drinks, candy, baked goods, syrup, table sugar, jelly, and honey


    FYI - A high intake of fruit juice can also raise triglyceride levels since it contains a high content of natural sugars.
