What is Aspartame (FAKE SUGAR)?
Aspartame is, by far, the most dangerous substance on the market that is added to foods.
What is it made of?
Aspartic acid. Excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a ton of other symptoms.
What are the dangers of consuming aspartame?
These include: cancer, multiple sclerosis, ALS, memory loss, hormonal problems, hearing loss, epilepsy, alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, hypoglycemia, dementia, brain lesions, neuroendocrine disorders, and many more diseases.
Acute reactions include:
- Weight gain
- Abdominal pains
- Fatigue (blocks sufficient glucose entry into brain)
- Sleep problems
- Vision problems
- Anxiety attacks
- Asthma/chest tightness.
What products are aspartame found in?
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener, so the majority of products that it is found in are labeled light/diet/fat free/sugar. These include products such as:
- Soda/Diet soda
- Sugar free Jello
- Ice cream
- Juice/vegetable drinks
- Nutritional bars
The best way to avoid aspartame is to avoid any foods labeled ‘diet.’ This usually means a ton of chemicals but reduced/no calories.
There is a lot of controversy over the use of aspartame. It is in no way beneficial to your health, you should avoid this chemical at all costs.
