YOUTUBE has become an indispensable source for those who want to get fit, but it can also feel like the Wild Wild West at times. Some Influencers get away with saying things like “Fructose is a hormone” when it’s actually a sugar found in fruits that’s directly absorbed into the blood during absorption. Whereas a hormone is a type of signaling molecule produced by glands, transported by the circulatory system and directed to organs in a means to regulate physiology and behavior.
