Discovering The Harms Of Synthetic Sugar

Introduction And Background

Sometimes what happens is that we have so much of something in our diet regularly that it becomes unknown to us what the effects might be. For instance, we all know that junk food is bad for us but we don’t hesitate much because let’s face it, everybody eats it right? But junk food is actually pretty harmful for us. Synthetic sugar is also one of those things that we let go by us without giving it a thought whether it is good for our body or not. In fact, you should know about sugar too before realizing about synthetic sugar! This article might be an eye-opener for you so read on further and enhance your knowledge.

Why Take Synthetic Sugar?
Firstly, you must be wondering why take in synthetic sugar at all, what makes it so different from the normal sugar. Well, those who are dieting would know the answer pretty well. Synthetic sugar is generally taken in by those people who are trying to lose weight but still want to taste the taste of sugar. It is also taken in by those who are diabetic patients and cannot take in sugar so they have to take in those artificial sweeteners. Both the categories should be aware of the dangers of synthetic sugar before deciding to make it a part of their daily lives. Even if you want to lose the extra weight you’ve put on, you can do it by avoiding sugar altogether. Do not become a slave to synthetic sugar because it does have some harm.

Discovering The Harms Of Synthetic Sugar
You are about to discover the harms of synthetic sugar. Open your mind and read.

  • Synthetic sugar actually have the power to dull your taste buds. They’ve become a bit better now but before they would dull your taste buds, making your body crave for something even sweeter than what you’ve actually tasted. The receptors become less receptive of synthetic sugar and eventually you need to high up the dose to satisfy yourself. Dulling your taste buds is definitely not a good thing; it is one of the most significant harms of relying on synthetic sugar.
  • Your stomach and intestines are being roughly played with when you take in synthetic sugar and your brain actually ends up paying for it. When you take in artificial sweeteners, they taste really good and your brain’s hunger signals are fully activated as they think something high caloric is going inside your stomach. But when your stomach and intestines do not receive any calories, it messes up with your brain signals, causing a strange adverse effect that might lead to even more confusion even when you have normal food.
  • Did you know that taking in synthetic sugar actually increases your craving for food? It’s true! When you take in synthetic sugar, your body still releases the hormone insulin because it feels as if something sugary is inside your body. When there is nothing for insulin to do, your body automatically craves for more sugar, the real one probably. This can actually mess up your hormonal system pretty badly if you keep on doing it and cravings will increase. This can only lead to gained weight if you are not careful of your cravings because after all, how long can you take in synthetic sugar and play with your mind?
  • When cravings increase, do you know what else increases? Your weight! Artificial sweeteners might be satisfying at that precise moment but later on they really do end up influencing your diet. You just need to have more sugar and unless you are able to control yourself consistently, you will gain weight.
  • It hasn’t been proven fully whether or not they give diabetes but studies have shown that those who drink a lot of diet sodas with synthetic sugar in them have proved to be at a high risk for type 2 diabetes. While evidence still lacks a little, there is still worry because directions and research are going into the direction of proving it to be a fact. Hence, be careful.
  • Genetically modified stuff should be avoided anyway. It is better to diet properly than to take in synthetic sugars.
  • Artificial sweeteners do not degrade in water and are thus polluting the water systems. Imagine what they could be doing your body. Scared yet?

Conclusion
Once you have discovered the harms of artificial sweeteners, you would know now that is not really good for the body and even if you think it is helping at first, it isn’t really. There are many other things you could like cutting down on sugar altogether and turning to protein if you are losing weight. Or you could control yourself for a little while and then you’ll get used to taking in things like tea and coffee without sugar. Mind over matter!
