Is Sugar really Bad?



Sugar provides both health benefits and negative consequences. It supplies an important source of energy that is easy for the body to metabolize and use. However, if you consume large amounts of sugar, you can increase your risk of obesity and the complications it can cause such as diabetes and heart disease. The effects of sugar are a result of how the body digests and uses it.

Sugar is digested quicker than fats or proteins and provides a vital source of energy, which explains why the body tries to store excess dietary intake.

It can effect on blood glucose levels. If your blood sugar levels spike, it can cause increased thirst and nausea. Likewise, if your blood sugar spikes, you may experience headaches or dizziness. It can also trigger your appetite, which can lead to overeating and can set the stage for weight gain.

According to positive health, sugar isn’t really dangerous as some people make it seem.

Sugar has a huge impact on the digestive system, which is where the majority of our immune system is housed.  Over consuming sugar can feed the infections such as Candida (yeast), and result in bloating, gas, and other unpleasant digestive effects.

Be aware of just how much  you are consuming daily.  ALWAYS check the nutrition label to see how many grams of sugar are in the products you are buying.  And remember to check out the serving size.  The label may say 5 grams, but if the amount of servings is 10, that’s 50 grams (and who really sticks to one serving?).

Ask questions, read labels, look up nutrition facts online.  The health risks of sugar are many and you really don’t want to be mindlessly consuming it.  Wouldn’t it be better to really enjoy a treat once in a while and know exactly what you are putting into your body, than be consuming 40 teaspoons of sugar a day without even knowing it?

Did you know that sugar is like a drug? It’s addictive. The more we eat, the more we want. And when we don’t fuel our bodies with it, it goes crazy with symptoms that encourage us to give up the plan of healthy eating and stick to our hold habits.

Think about it.
