A new book argues that willpower is tied directly to consumption of glucose—and we can teach ourselves new behavior.
After swimming, foods high in glucose may help aid in recovery.
The authors of one study found that a drink of glucose solution decreased blood levels of testosterone by as much as 25 percent.
Dieting, as the glucose breakthrough reveals, provides an especially tricky test of willpower.
Every fructose molecule in sucrose, in contrast, is bound to a glucose.
It behaves the same as glucose with all the ordinary tests, and can be distinguished only by polarization.
Boiled in dilute acids it splits into murrayetin and glucose.
This compound may be prepared from glucose (C6H12O6), a sugar easily obtained from starch.
This was directly established for glucose, lævulose, galactose, and arabinose .
The presence of grape sugar or glucose indicates the disease known as diabetes.
1840, from French glucose (1838), said to have been coined by French professor Eugène Melchior Péligot (1811-1890) from Greek gleukos "must, sweet wine," related to glykys "sweet, delightful, dear," from *glku-, dissimilated in Greek from PIE *dlk-u- "sweet" (cf. Latin dulcis). It first was obtained from grape sugar.
glucose glu·cose (glōō'kōs')
A monosaccharide sugar the blood that serves as the major energy source of the body; it occurs in most plant and animal tissue. Also called blood sugar.
A monosaccharide sugar found in plant and animal tissues. Glucose is a product of photosynthesis, mostly incorporated into the disaccharide sugar sucrose rather than circulating free in the plant. Glucose is essential for energy production in animal cells. It is transported by blood and lymph to all the cells of the body, where it is metabolized to form carbon dioxide and water along with ATP, the main source of chemical energy for cellular processes. Glucose molecules can also be linked into chains to form the polysaccharides cellulose, glycogen, and starch. Chemical formula: C6H12O6. See more at cellular respiration, Krebs cycle, photosynthesis.
