NutraSweet, What it’s Doing to You. What Are Safer Sweeteners?
What if aspartame, or NutraSweet, is in foods you’re eating, and you don’t even know it because they’ve renamed it, and it’s causing symptoms?
If you have migraines, vertigo, brain fog, fatigue, or strange neurological symptoms, a few neurotoxins causing those are everywhere in processed food.
Luckily, you CAN avoid neurotoxic ingredients, and I want to make that easy for you.
The processed food industry drives an artificial sweetener off the market, when there’s a new patented sweetener that will make its patent holder billions of dollars.
That’s what happened with aspartame. They drove saccharin out, and aspartame took its place.
They manipulate consumer sentiment, and even manipulate studies, so that the headlines make people choose the new fake sweetener instead.
There’s also a big media push right now, to disparage more natural sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit.
If you read the articles, and click the links, you’ll see what I’m seeing: that there’s no evidence that stevia or monk fruit are bad for you.
All the media headlines are talking about blends of sugar alcohols, with one of those natural sweeteners.
And sugar alcohols ARE bad for you. Erythritol, maltitol, isomalt, sorbitol, mannitol … most of them end with -ol, but not all.
You can tell how bad they are, by bloat and gas and bellyaches you may experience, after you eat “sugar alcohols.”
Eating a piece of fruit is obviously better for your sweet tooth, than anything in a package using a concentrated or synthetic sweetener.
But by themselves, there’s no evidence stevia or monk fruit cause problems, and have been used for many decades.
There’s no patent holder on them, because they come directly from an herb or a food.
Most of the foods that contain those synthetic sweeteners also contain other toxic ingredients.
If you want to get to feeling better, fast, consider adding greens, vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds, and organic whole grains into your diet.
I teach you how, with this 6-video class on how I made the shift from the Standard American Diet, to a whole-foods diet, with no suffering and still loving my food.
I also created a wallet card for you, with the known neurotoxic ingredients. And I’ve made it available to you, for free, get it here.
Aspartame is one of the worst, but you want to have this card in your wallet, while you’re shopping, because there are other neurotoxic food ingredients that are equally bad.
Food manufacturers have gotten very clever at diverting your attention to the neurotoxic ingredients, by calling them by other names.
The wallet card lists the known neurotoxic ingredients. Aspartame is one of the worst, but you want to have this card in your wallet, while you’re shopping, because there are other neurotoxic food ingredients that are equally bad.
