Science reveals new sugar replacement w/ Dr. Ben Bikman
Allulose as a sugar is getting a lot of well deserved attention. 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.
