3 Reasons To Stop Artificial Sweeteners

Updated: May 28, 2020

That should be said considering that the average American consumes about 150- 170 pounds of sugar each year. In this staggering amount of consumption, some have adopting a new way of poisoning by consuming artificial sweeteners.

1. Metabolic Issues 

Artificial sweeteners cause metabolic issues by causing disrupting leptin, a hormone that regulates appetite. Even though you are consuming zero calories your body releases insulin causing spikes in your blood sugar, leading to crazy cravings. These imbalances causes weight gains, and an increase risk for diabetes.

A recent study from the University of Texas found that people who drank diet soda were 65% more likely to be overweight than people who didn't drink soda at all, but even crazier, they were more likely to be overweight than people who drank regular soda.

2. Increased risk of cardiovascular disease

According to research, your risk of cardiovascular disease increased when consuming more than 2 more artificially sweetened drinks per day. Women have a higher risk than men for cardiovascular issues.

3.  GMO Packed.

 Artificial sweeteners such as sucralose, aspartame, neotame, and erythritol can all be made from corn, soy, or sugar beets. In the United States, the vast majority of those three crops have been genetically altered to resist or produce harmful pesticides.

Yes it is you can hide the taste sometimes by juicing , or blending it in with a flavorful salad. If you just don’t like the bitter/pickle taste altogether than you can always supplement it with other veggie/fruit depending on what benefits you are trying to receive. For instance if you are wanting to benefit from eating a fruit like cucumber because it holds more water, well they are many.... watermelon , strawberries cantaloupe... just depends on the needs


Is there another way to intake cucumbers if you do not like them a supplement maybe?
