The chemical reactions that occur inside the human body are extremely complex. One of the main reactions that occurs is the metabolism of glucose, and another reaction is the detoxification of the liver. The metabolism of glucose is one of the main factors that affect the levels of insulin that are generated by the liver. The metabolism of glucose is also related to a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The human body produces a lot of glucose. This excess glucose is quickly transported to the cells in the body by the blood stream and is rapidly processed into glucose. When the body is in an energy deficit, the body will try to use any glucose it can find. The liver then converts the glucose into the ketone body acetoacetate which then has a very powerful detoxifying effect on the body. In addition to the normal process of conversion, the liver also produces other substances such as urea, bile salts, and purine.
