Sucralose is an artificial sweetener derived from sugar that has been altered to be sweeter than sugar and contain fewer calories. This is why it has been widely advertised as a smart choice for those with diabetes and those trying to lose weight. However, this seemingly miracle sweetener isn't all it's made out to be.
The Truth About Sucralose
Since its popularization, there have been many studies that have disproven the supposed benefits of sucralose. So, let's break down a few of these myths.
It is believed that because of sucralose's lack of calories it helps people to enjoy sweets without gaining unwanted weight. This is not entirely true. Studies have now shown that some people actually gain weight when consuming sucralose over natural sugar since it seems sucralose may stimulate your appetite, causing you to eat more overall.
Studies have shown that sucralose can lower the good bacteria in your gut biome by at least half. That can have disastrous effects on your gut health. We need good bacteria for proper digestion and overall body functioning. If you have been consuming sucralose we recommend you take a probiotic to restore balance to your gut.
There's now evidence to back the claim that sucralose can cause inflammation in the body. We all know chronic inflammation can lead to an array of issues, including diabetes, asthma, obesity, and heart disease. We take Turmeric to counteract inflammation caused by working out and a demanding lifestyle. This is why we can't imagine making it worse by consuming sucralose.
Read The Labels
Sucralose can be found in everything from chewing gum to prepackaged foods to toothpaste to drinks, so always read your labels. Also, don't let it hide behind fancy brand names like Splenda. Be aware and take your time so you can easily avoid this hidden risk in products masquerading as healthy.
Making Better Choices
We make it a point not to include sucralose in any of our products. So you have peace of mind knowing our products won't be sneaking this sweet danger into your diet. Instead, we choose to use stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from a leaf that has been used by indigenous people long before America was even a country. Some may not like the taste of stevia on its own, but in products with other natural flavors it can be a very useful calorie-free sweetener.
So keep your eye out for brands sneaking sucralose into the products you buy and instead seek out natural alternatives.
