In recent years, there’s a shortage of glycerol resources in the international market. For example, in the food industry, the world’s glycerin consumption is increasing by about 3.5% every year. In the United States alone, 40 million pounds, or 20, 000 tons, will be used in the food industry by 1995. Asian demand for glycerol has increased year after year as cosmetic production has skyrocketed.
The situation of glycerol in China has been tense for a long time, and need to import part of glycerol every year. In 1993, our country imported glycerin (crude), glycerin water and glycerin lye amounted to 51.24 tons, consuming 71,800 us dollars in foreign exchange. Import of other glycerol (including synthetic glycerol) 6,630 •25 tons, consumption of foreign exchange $6,812,224.Glycerol has risen from 4,000 yuan per ton in 1989 to around 18,000-20,000 yuan today. In 1994, coating production on demand of 2. 450,000 tons, 13,500 tons of toothpaste. It’s projected that by the year 2000, the annual demand will reach 120,000 tons, and then the production will be only 650,000 tons. At present, the existing domestic production is far from meeting the demand, often appears Broken.
Stabilize blood sugar and insulin
A study was published in the European Journal of applied physiology. The researchers divided six healthy young men into three groups, gave them glucose, glycerin, and a placebo, and asked them to do the same exercise on a treadmill. People who took glucose 45 minutes before exercise (0.5g per pound of body weight) had a 50 percent increase in blood sugar levels and a threefold increase in blood insulin levels at the start of the exercise. People who took glycerol 45 minutes before exercise (0.5g per pound of body weight) had a 340-fold increase in blood glycerol levels at the start of exercise, but no change in blood sugar or insulin levels.
So if you substitute glycerin for high-calorie carbohydrates, you can avoid the bad effects of eating too many cookies or cakes. High doses of glycerin have little effect on blood sugar or insulin levels. Plenty of evidence suggests that glycerol may be ideal glycogen if your goal is to reduce your carbohydrate intake.
Some scientists also stress that glycerin is a good supplement if you want to perform better on the field. The reason is that when you’re hydrated, your energy is stronger and lasts longer. Especially at high temperatures, glycerin’s strong water-retention properties help the body store more water.
Glycerin may contain an energy-producing acid, according to a study published in the international journal of sports medicine. The researchers compared glycerol with a nutritional sweetener called spartan by giving subjects either 1.2 grams of glycerol per kilogram of body weight (20% aqueous form) or 26ml of aspartame. The results showed that glycerin could not only reduce the heart rate of the exercisers but also extend the exercise time by 20% under the sub-extreme exercise load.
For people who are doing intensive physical training, glycerin may give them better performance. For bodybuilders, glycerin may help transfer water from the skin and skin of the body into the blood and muscles.
Natural glycerin moisturizes, softens, rejuvenates and prevents dry skin. It can reduce the cracks and cracks caused by winter, but also helps prevent wrinkles. Not only does it cleanse your skin, but it also removes acne, which is good for protecting your skin and making it elastic, but it also makes your skin firmer.
