The evidence appears to be confusing to say the least. Ray Peat and Danny support the idea that sugar lowers adrenaline. Paul Jaminet seems to believe sugar raises adrenaline. And both sides actually cite evidence to support their claims.
In my opinion, I think the devil is in the details. If you can store glycogen well, then I think sugar will probably lower adrenaline. People that aren't storing glycogen well would benefit more from a carbohydrate that triggers a much bigger insulin release then sugar, like starch. This is because insulin is one of the few substances that can actually inhibit fat oxidation directly.
Insulin and adrenaline are diametrically opposed to one another. So in my opinion there's no right or wrong answer here, it's more about context of one's current health state, or more specifically, the current state of one's liver. If you handle sugar badly, then it's likely a sign of poor liver function.
Choline, protein, caffeine, vitamin K2, glycine, are the go-to things for improving liver health.I think I'm in the bad liver boat. Sugar tends to make me feel not great, but Saturated Fats like Cocoa Butter help me go towards normalcy. Any suggestions for Liver health besides caffeine?
Choline, protein, caffeine, vitamin K2, glycine, are the go-to things for improving liver health.
Some less common things you could try are anti-serotonin, anti-endotoxin drugs like cyproheptadine or benadryl. Their anti-fibrotic effects could be useful.
Taurine, biotin, and H2 antagonists (famotidine) can all be used to restore the liver's ability to hold glycogen.
