Elenolic Acid For Weight Loss And Diabetes — Doing it Backwards Once Again

Today we return to Medical News Today and a new ‘mouse’ study on elenolic acid recently presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. It’s kind of sad and embarrassing that these people still do not understand the huge physiological differences between mice and humans. Still, let’s see what they’ve got.

As of 2022, one in every eight people around the world lives with obesity.
Previous research shows that obesity can raise a person’s risk for several health concerns, including type 2 diabetes.

No, you half-wits. Correlation does not imply causation. Obesity is the result of overindulgence of energy and toxins that are stored in your fat tissue, something that is accelerated by the consumption of carbohydrates, especially in combination with unsaturated fats, as in seed/vegetable oils. I’ve covered this in depth.

And diabetes is the result of repeatedly increasing blood glucose above its natural levels by consuming carbohydrates. As soft tissues and other cells take damage from elevated blood glucose, they eventually shut down their receptors for glucose in order to survive, which means that insulin can no longer do its job efficiently. As this starts to happen, it’s called “insulin resistance,” and as more and more cells shut down, it is called “diabetes” in its later stages. Diabetes has nothing to do with obesity, although both are driven and developed by a very bad and non-human diet, as in consuming carbohydrates.

Focusing on elenolic acid in olives

Liu and his team used a mouse model to conduct their study, which began by identifying natural compounds that affect L-cells, which contain the metabolic hormones PYY and GLP-1 that are released when eating. When these hormones are released, they signal the body to stop eating and help control blood sugar levels.”

PYY (Peptide YY) is a hormone produced by the L cells of the gastrointestinal tract, primarily in the small intestine and colon. Its primary function is to regulate appetite and food intake. While insulin and glucagon play roles in regulating blood glucose levels, this hormone is released in response to nutrient ingestion. It is mainly triggered by the increase in blood glucose, and is simply another safety mechanism for the body to deter you from consuming too much toxic carbohydrates, as elevated levels of blood sugar is extremely damaging.

Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a peptide hormone produced by enteroendocrine cells in the gut, primarily in response to nutrient ingestion, particularly carbohydrates. Its main function is to stimulate insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells and to decrease glucagon secretion from pancreatic alpha cells, thus promoting glucose uptake in peripheral tissues and reducing blood glucose levels to minimize damage to tissues. And as with PYY, GLP-1 reduces appetite.

So, both hormones are crucial to minimize the damage from consuming unnecessary and toxic carbohydrates that turn into glucose and thus increase blood glucose levels above normal, which is extremely damaging to our body.

Researchers identified elenolic acid that is naturally found in olives as a compound that can cause the release of the PYY and GLP-1 hormones into the gut.

Now, if this is applicable and transferable to humans, the backwards-thinking idiot might say that this sounds like a very good thing as you’ll likely get satiated quicker, thus consume less crap, and glucose will be cleared out quicker, avoiding prolonged damage as seen in those with “insulin resistance” and diabetes.

Well, again, this is only a band-aid. A way to lessen the damage of a retarded diet. Here’s another idea. What about changing the diet? What about removing the problem, the thing that causes the damage and condition in the first place? As in removing the totally unnecessary and toxic carbohydrates? Wow, such a radical idea! No, we can’t do that. Putting them on an animal-based ketogenic diet would actually make them healthy again. Can’t make any money from that. Got to keep the plant-based focused food industry happy and our patients dependent on drugs to slow down their progression to the grave, just enough so we can make a good profit.

“Elenolic acid is a natural compound found in olives and olive oil,” Liu explained. “It’s part of a larger group of substances called polyphenols. Elenolic acid is naturally produced during the maturation process of olive from breaking down oleuropein, the most abundant polyphenolic compound in olive and olive leaf extract-based dietary supplement.”

And this is a big problem. Polyphenols are part of a plant’s defense, as in protecting them from herbivores and pathogens. Polyphenols are defense chemicals, as in poisons, constructed to maim and kill anyone or anything trying to eat or hurt the plant.

So, the really important question is how does elenolic acid, this polyphenol, increase PPY and GLP-1? What are the mechanisms?

Considering that it is a poison, and our bodies always prioritize survival, as limiting our exposure and then breaking down and eliminating the most toxic substance first, before dealing with the less toxic compounds, a logical conclusion would be that these hormones increase as the result of acute poisoning and to make you stop consuming that specific food, as in the source of elenolic acid.

While the immediate effect of blood glucose control and a quicker onset of satiety might be desirable if you’re also consuming processed junk, such as plant-based foods full of carbohydrates and seed/vegetable oils, one also needs to consider the long-term damaging effects of such a toxic defense chemical. And not only that, but the continuous damaging effect of the diet you’re trying to band-aid with poisoning yourself. 

Yes, it’s a complete mess. And even worse, this is how the medical- and pharmaceutical industry think and reason. They don’t care about fixing the real problem, they only care about lessening the symptoms and making their patient’s miserable lives a tiny bit less miserable — so they can go on for a little while longer, buying and consuming crap they don’t need, while still being very unhealthy and dependent on their drugs.

After this, Medical News Today cited said that the mice in the study had a 10.7% reduction in obesity after 5 weeks of being poisoned — and that their blood sugar levels and “insulin sensitivity” improved, which is simply due to more insulin being released by the stimulus of GLP-1. 

Then they said that they’re still waiting for human studies. Well, all that is of course irrelevant as the approach is totally backwards. You cannot treat or fix a problem by adding to it. You need to remove whatever is causing it, as in changing the diet. That is the only sane and logical solution, and it should be obvious. This idiotic band-aid approach only reinforces bad behavior as people think they can get away with anything as long as they pop a pill. Sorry, you can’t and you will never be able to. As long as you consume and expose your body to things that are not species-appropriate, you will inflict damage every single time, and it accumulates no matter what you take to try and lessen the impact. Not to mention that whatever band-aid you take will also do damage, most likely to our organs. Modern medicine and the prescription and recommendation of drugs, herbs, and “natural remedies” is simply slow-paced murder.

If you have health problems, always start with the most fundamental thing of all, your diet. Humans are obligate hyper carnivores and there is no way around it. If you do not consume a lot of animal fat and protein, that is where you should start. For more, check my Quick-Start Nutrition Archive.

And if you still need advice or help with health issues or with transitioning to our natural species-appropriate carnivorous way of eating, I’m available for both coaching and consultation.
