Other benefits of using maple syrup

 

Sweeten your antioxidant defenses: The trace mineral manganese is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy, production and antioxidant defenses. For example, the key oxidative enzyme “superoxide dismutase”, which disarms free radicals produced within the mitochondria, requires manganese.

 

Men benefit from Maple syrup: Maple syrup helps in supporting the reproductive health and also offers special benefits for men. Zinc is highly concentrated in the prostate gland and lower levels may cause protate cancer. Therapeutically, zinc is used by physicians for reducing prostate size. Manganese also plays vital role in men’s health as it is a catalyst in synthesizing cholesterol and fatty acids. It also assists in the production of sex hormones. Maple syrup is not an allergenic food and does not contain purines, goitrogens and oxalates.

 

Maple syrup is good for the heart: This is an excellent sweetener if you are trying to maintain your heart’s health. It helps in decreasing the progression of atheroscleriosis. Zinc is required for the functioning of endothelial cells. It also prevents the endothelial damage which may be caused by oxidized LDL cholesterol and other oxidized fats. Endothelial membranes which have less zinc levels are more susceptible to injury. Additionally, studies have found that in adults deficient in manganes, the other trace mineral amply supplied in maple syrup, the level of HDL is decreased.

 

Maple syrup in the Immune system: Manganese and zinc are important allies in the immune system. Most immune cells depend on zinc for the optimal function, especially in children. Researchers studied the impact of zinc deficiency on children’s immune response and also their number of white blood cells, including specific studies on T lymphocytes, macrophages, and B cells. In these studies, zinc deficiencies have been shown to compromise the numbers of white blood cells and immune response, while zinc supplementation has been shown to restore conditions to normal.  Zinc is also a component of the antioxidant SOD. This antioxidant helps lessen inflammation and thus supports the healing process. Manganese acts as an immunostimulant.

 

Low on the Glycemic Index. The Glycemic Index (GI) is a scale that ranks foods on how they affect blood mglucose levels. By consuming foods with a low GI rating (55 or lower), we can prevent or control heart desease, diabetes and obesity. Maple syrup (GI54) compares well with other sweetening products such as white sugar (GI58) and honey (GI87)
