While it does take a little more time and effort than whipping up a batch of bars of soap, I think you’ll find that it’s well worth it, especially when you take a look at the price of a store bought liquid castile soap. When making liquid soaps, you use KOH, potassium hydroxide, rather than Na OH, sodium hydroxide, the lye used in bar soaps like my easy, beginner soap.Technically, castile soap is a type of soap originating here in Spain, and made with olive oil.
This implies the saturated fat impaired beta cell function as well, again within just hours after going into our mouth.
A couple of years ago, I showed you how easy it was to make a basic beginner soap, even if you’ve never done it before.
I understand why making soap can sound intimidating, but once you give it a try, it can become very addicting.
Saturated fats are harmful to beta cells; harmful to the insulin-producing cells in our pancreas. The uptake of bad cholesterol, LDL, can cause beta cell death as a result of free radical formation.
So diets rich in saturated fats not only cause obesity and insulin resistance, but the increased levels of circulating free fats in the blood, called NEFAs, non-esterified fatty acids, cause beta cell death and may thus contribute to progressive beta cell loss in type 2 diabetes. If you infuse fat into people’s bloodstream you can directly impair pancreatic beta cell function, and the same when we ingest it.
