Healthy alternatives to processed sugar
Processed sugar is more dangerous than it looks. I am not talking about the occasional cavity in your teeth. Processed sugar has many other side effects that can have long lasting implications for your health.
- Processed sugar depresses your immune system.
- Processed sugar can promote cancer. The tumor in your body feeds on the processed sugar in your blood and grows rapidly.
- Processed sugar can age your skin. Wrinkles and sagging skin are common because the fibers in your skin can get damaged.
- Processed sugar has been proven to increase risk of heart diseases.
One of the best ways to control the damage caused by sugar in your system is to control your intake. Make sure that you keep your intake to 12 teaspoons or less on a daily basis. That is close to 48 grams.
If you find that it is difficult to control the intake of sugar, don’t worry… there is another alternative. Healthy alternatives to processed sugar are available everywhere. Use these healthier options and keep your body healthy and free from processed sugars.
Organic Stevia is one such healthy alternative to sugar. It is a herb in the chrysanthemum family and it has incredible sweetness without any processed sugar. Unlike sugar which is virtually devoid of nutritional benefits, Stevia is much sweeter than sugar and has none of sugar’s unhealthy drawbacks such as empty calories and degenerative diseases.
So go ahead and use Organic Stevia because it is all natural and a much healthier alternative to sugar.
