We all love a bit of sugar! Here are some reasons why we should avoid it or reduce it when we can;
Control sugar addiction
Sugar can be addictive and it may trigger brain neurochemical alterations.
Too much sugar can lead to yeast overgrowth, inflammation, and hormone imbalance, all of which can lead to dry skin, acne, eczema, and other skin conditions.
Decreased risk of heart illnesses
The research investigated that people who consumed 25% of their daily calories from added sugar were twice as likely to die from heart disease as those who consumed less than 10%.
Restore the gut flora
Sugar is one of the foods that irritates and inflames the lining of your intestines and stomach. It could cause stomach discomfort, acid reflux, bloating, and uneasy bowel motions.
Lessen the risk of cancer
Excessive insulin levels are linked to an increased risk of cancer.
Strengthening body's immunity
Sugar triggers inflammation, and there's a lot of evidence that it impairs the immune system.
Decrease chances of obesity
Sugary beverages and snacks contribute empty calories to your diet, leading to additional (empty) calories being consumed.
Decelerate the aging process
Sugar (glucose) restriction will lengthen life and reduce aging-related symptoms.
Insulin is required to transport sugar from the bloodstream to the muscle, where it is burnt for energy. You can develop insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes if you consume too much sugar.
