Did you know Artificial Sweeteners Could Do This?

10 March 2009 One Comment

Hi There,equal

Today im sitting at my desk sipping my first cup of coffee for the day and for once i’m not using the same Sucralose sweetener that i have been for the past year. Why? Well i was reading into the other day some material that said artificial sweetener had barely been tested and that there had been a number of cases where patients had been reported showing side effects relating to it’s usage.

I knew alot of my friends were heavy diet coke and wrigleys chewing gum users so i did some digging and found that there is even controversy about the ingredients used in these common artificial sweeteners.

As usual i packed my camera and trecked it down to Ideal Health in Glenfield to see Leanne. Guess what she had to say?

Wow once again Leanne had alot of experience in the area and had a ton of information to share.

In short There are much healthier alternatives to sugar then artificial sweeteners such as splenda or Equal. Stevia is one that is natural and has the same sweetening effects unlike the chemicals that go into producing artificial sweeteners. Sucralose in my opinion and from what iv heard shouldn’t even be on the market. It’s the usual story of the large companies trying to make as much money out of people as possible without any consideration of the effects that this is having on it’s consumers health.

In the end artificial sweeteners seem to contribute to weightgain more regularly then they do to weight loss. With this in mind id have to say im quite enjoying my unsweetened cup of coffee right now as im sure a number of you will be.

Leanne gave me a link to pass on to you also that is exclusive to this Blog. If you go to Stevia you’ll be able to pick up your own safe sweetener at a very low price so head along there now.

Ill talk to you next week where ill bring you once again ill blow open a very well covered up topic.

    Hi. I have held the belief that the chemical sugar substitutes are dangerous for a long time and am glad it is becoming more recognised. A lot of my friends feed their children “sugar free” soft drinks on the thought they are better for them and have thought it funny that I would bring a full sugar version for my children rather than allow them the one the rest were having. I fail to understand how anyone can think a chemical can be better for our bodies than a natural product…. Everything in moderation (including moderation). (By the way all 3 of my children are fit active and have weights that are perfectly matched to their heights despite having an open cupboard policy in our home). :-)
