We are seeing some pretty remarkable science with respect to allulose as it relates to metabolic health and specifically, weight loss. I felt, as such, that it would be a good idea to interview Dr. Benjamin Bikman on the Empowering Neurologist program today. Let me tell you more about Dr. Bikman.   Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders.  Currently, his professional focus as a scientist and professor (Brigham Young University) is to better understand the role of elevated insulin and nutrient metabolism in regulating obesity, diabetes, and dementia.   In our time together, we discuss the important science of allulose as it relates to fat distribution in the body, insulin resistance, heart disease, fatty liver disease, cognitive decline, and even how allulose is able to lower uric acid, an area that I'm certainly interested in.   I hope you enjoy this fascinating interview with Dr. Benjamin Bikman.   ==== TIMESTAMPS: 0:00 Intro 2:08 The Study of Metabolism 4:53 Dr. Bikman's Insulin Research 7:08 Why People's Bodys Aren’t Able to Use Insulin Correctly 10:12 What Causes Spikes in Insulin Levels 14:59 Problem with Annual Fasting Blood Sugar Test 17:24 Merits of a Continuous Glucose Monitor 19:53 New Sugar Replacement: Allulose 30:43 Bringing Down Uric Acid with Allulose 33:17 Allulose & Insulin Resistance 35:52 Reducing Fatty-Liver Disease Risk 38:48 Protecting Mitochondria Against Cardiovascular Disease 42:00 Cognitive Decline & Allulose 44:42 Preventing Alzheimers 51:28 Conclusion ====   Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders.
