Sugar isn’t just the cause of energy crashes, weight gain and upset stomach. It could potentially be holding you back from a longer life! Cutting out sugar is easier with natural detoxification and healthy sugar substitutes that keep the sweetness in your life.
But did you know that consuming sugar could also decrease your longevity?
A study published in a recent issue of Cell Metabolism states that all the sugar in the standard American diet might be taking years off your life.[i]
According to the study, by adding just a small amount of glucose to the bacteria consumed by C. elegans (a worm often studied as a model organism), researchers found that the worms lose about 20 percent of their usual life span. They trace the effect to insulin signals, which can block other life-extending molecular players.[ii]
If you’re like many people, the holiday season was a time of rich, high-sugar meals. With the abundance of these foods during the holiday season, most people load up on sugar and often experience weight gain, sluggishness and stomach pain.
But artificial sweeteners aren’t the answer, either.
As you probably know, most sugar substitutes are just nasty chemicals. Aspartame contributes to neurotoxicity and causes headaches, seizures, and mood disorders, and may even cause some cancer.[iii]
It’s imperative that you reduce the sugar intake in your diet.
