3 most common artificial sweeteners
1. Aspartame: is a common artificial sweetener with side-effects that range from hallucinations to seizures to even brain tumors. Example brands are NutraSweet and Equal.
2. Splenda (often on labels as “Sucralose”): can enlarge both the liver and kidneys and shrink the thymus glands. Other side-effects include skin rashes, panic attacks, diarrhea, headaches, bladder issues, and stomach pain.
3. Saccharin: is commonly manufactured by combining anthranilic acid, nitrous acid, sulfur dioxide, chlorine, and ammonia. In addition to it being thought to cause cancer, saccharin may also cause headaches, breathing issues, and skin rashes.
Go Natural just like Brad one of our many success stories
A good way to avoid all of the health risks associated with artificial sweeteners is to go natural — with some caveats. Raw sugar, honey and agave nectar, for example, are all-natural and minimally processed, but they each will spike your blood sugar levels and have from 50 to 60 calories per tablespoon.
Swapping out artificial sweeteners for a natural, safer alternative doesn’t require a lot of effort. At the same time, this one step can dramatically transform your weight and your health.
