And I do hope you start avoid sugar and high fructose corn syrup…
Then, you might ask me, is it safe to consume sweetener? Many people use sweeteners wishing to avoid eating sugar.
Well, a man made sweetener that is cheaper to produce, actually sweeter than sugar and more harm to your health! This sweetener is a mixture of fructose and glucose. It has a great sweetening effect and contains as many calories as sugar.
It is not recommended for diabetics or overweight people. Many studies have shown that prolonged use of fructose syrup may lead to obesity, diabetes or liver diseases.
One of the nutritionists, Joel and Josh have an important article below for you about the DAMAGE that this artificial sweetener does to your gut:
Sweetener Destroys Your Gut
Splenda, also known as sucralose, is an artificial, chemical sweetener.
Despite advertisements stating “Made from Sugar, so it Tastes like Sugar”, which attempt to confuse consumers, Splenda is not natural and contains no elements of natural sugar.
You may also be surprised to learn that Splenda contains chlorine. Yes, the same chlorine that goes in swimming pools. And here’s the worst side effect:
Just like chlorine kills off micro-organisms in swimming pools, Splenda and sucralose kill off healthy bacteria that lives in your gut — healthy bacteria that is vitally important to virtually every aspect of your health.
Recently, a study at the University of Duke confirmed this very finding. Not only is sucralose a heavily-processed, chemical artificial sweetener, but it’s also damaging to your gut health, which goes on to affect every other aspect of your health.
Here’s a direct quote from that study:
“Splenda suppresses beneficial bacteria and directly affects the expression of the transporter P-gp and cytochrome P-450 isozymes that are known to interfere with the bioavailability of nutrients. Furthermore, these effects occur at Splenda doses that contain sucralose levels that are approved by the FDA for use in the food supply.”
Did you know that over 80% of your immune system finds it’s home in your gut? In fact, there are more than 100 TRILLION living bacteria in your gut that control many aspects of your health, and due to things like the ingestion of artificial sweeteners like Splenda, most folks have created a massive bacterial imbalance in their body.
But, it doesn’t just stop with the use of Splenda or other artificial sweeteners. Here are some other common items that are contributing to the bacterial imbalances that BILLIONS of folks are silently suffering from all around the world:
- Diet beverages and food items (remember, sucralose is added to MANY foods, beverages, and supplements as a sweetener beyond just those little yellow packets that you may use in your coffee)
- Alcohol consumption
- Processed, packaged foods
- Certain brands of mouth wash, chewing gum, dishwasher detergent, and toothpaste
- Non-organic fruits and vegetables
- Non-organic meats
- Non-organic dairy products
If you are in contact with any of these items, it could be contributing to a serious imbalance in your gut bacteria and an overall decline in your health.
What’s more, if you suffer from irregular bowel movements, constipation, gas, bloating, acid reflux, indigestion, skin problems, overall sickness, bad breath, fatigue, urinary tract infections, sugar cravings, and/or an inability to lose weight, these symptoms are a near telltale sign that your gut bacteria is ALREADY severely imbalanced and has literally become a ticking time bomb.
But even worse, here are some of the more serious consequences that can result from gut imbalances left unaddressed:
- Severe irritable bowel syndrome and extreme daily discomfort
- Serious skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis
- A constant battle with ongoing fatigue and low energy levels
- A life full of chronic sickness and pain due to a declining immune system
- Cirrhosis and cancer of the liver
- Metabolic syndrome
Fortunately, you can correct imbalances in bad bacteria by supplementing with “good” bacteria known as probiotics. In fact, research is now suggesting that supplementing with a quality probiotic supplement every single day just may be even more important for your health and longevity than taking a daily multivitamin…the problem is finding a quality product that overcomes the pitfalls of most probiotic supplements.
You may not know this, but more than 93% of the probiotics found in traditional probiotic products will be dead by the time they reach your gut (the “final destination” that they must reach alive and well in order to provide you with their beneficial properties).
Because probiotics are living organisms, they are also very fragile and sensitive to light, heat, and the extremely acidic environment of your stomach, leaving you with very little live probiotics to benefit from once they reach their home in your intestinal track.
