Artificial sweeteners

Sugar is bad enough on its own. But much too often, food products aren’t even sweetened with the real thing. Instead, they’re chock-full of artificial sweeteners.

These sweeteners can lead to many health issues, including metabolic disease, headaches, and cardiovascular disease. But they can also end up causing an addiction to sweet foods by altering your taste buds, causing you to crave and seek out even more sweet foods.

If all that wasn’t bad enough, this stress-causing food also has side effects that can lead to stress. Aspartame, for instance, is found in over 6,000 foods and drinks and 500 over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

Artificial sweeteners also cause mood disorders, migraines, and manic episodes. And just like any other kinds of sugar, they don’t do your blood sugar any favors, either. A good alternative to sweeten your drinks is honey.

It’s filled with antioxidants and also has antifungal properties.
