Artificial sugars rot your brain.
25 years ago, a scientist friend of ours told us about artificial sugars, like Splenda, Aspartame, Nurtrisweet, and the likes, and how they rot our brain.
I nearly fell off my chair.
My kids ranged from 3 to 15, and I remember thinking: this can’t be true!
I thought the governments are here to look after us!
How can I protect my kids now?
I remember feeling completely overwhelmed, especially when I began my own research and discovered that artificial sugars are in nearly 6000 products on the market.
It is unavoidable unless you eat your own food and scrutinize what goes into your body as Pete and I do.
This was one of the first big rabbit holes I explored and when I came out, I never looked at the world the same way.
I have been researching ‘health’ and ‘politics’ ever since, but I will spare you the details, other than to say that these two are opposite ends of the spectrum.
Artificial sugars are hidden in diet coke, juices, breakfast cereals, toothpaste, most weight loss products, medical drugs, chewing gum, ice cream, sugar-free mixes, gelatin, cough drops, gummy vitamins.
You name it, it probably contains artificial sugar, so I implore you to do your own detective work if you want to live long and healthy, with your marbles intact.
Artificial sugars can lead to;
- Mental disorders
- Brain tumours
- Mood disorders
- Kidney function decline
- Weight gain
- Metabolic syndrome
- Sperm damage
- Liver damage.
- Intestinal dysbiosis.
And this is the shortlist.
There is another very long list but let us go into ways you can protect yourself.
Check every packet and container in your pantry, and toss it out if it contains artificial sugar.
Eat fermented foods, like Love your Guts Sauerkraut and Kimchi, which help clean up toxins and rubbish from your digestive tract.
Restore your microbiome.
Once your microbiome is altered, by toxins like antibiotics and artificial sugars, the contraceptive pill, or other drugs, your body will age a lot faster than normal, and your immune system is more prone to collapse.
85% of your immune system is in your gut, in the form of the Microbiome, which is now classed as an organ that weighs as much as your liver.
Your body will heal itself in no time.
That is the beauty of our body, it can take a beating for 20 years and when you turn over a new leaf, it only takes a few months (sometimes only days) for you to feel 100% better.
If you give your body a period of ‘grace’ which means you stop treating it like a criminal and begin to show it respect, it will reward you with renewed energy, optimism, creativity, happiness, and a deep sense of wellbeing.
