Is Your Body In Sugar Shock
Nowadays, sugar is practically added in everything: coffee, doughnuts, tea, cereal, juice, even bread, meat and ketchup.
And what for?
Because it makes things taste better and creates a sort of “sugar addiction”.
Do you know that some studies have reported that sugar can be eight times more addictive than cocaine?
Scary isn’t it?
Unfortunately, almost everybody is craving for sweets, soda, candy, ice cream and so on.
And despite the constant warnings of public health officials, many people continue to ingest extraordinary amounts of sugar.
And The Results?
Well, Americans are among the most obese people in the world, and are the most obese people in North America.
Currently, 35 percent of Americans are overweight. Among them,78 million adults and 13 million children deal with health repercussions from being overweight.
It is estimated that the average American adult is 26 pounds heavier now than in the 1950’s.
The human body isn’t designed to ingest a large amount of sugar.
This is relatively recent explosion in the amount of sugar consumption, which has created a health epidemic that affects millions of individuals not only in United States, but around the world as well.
Signs That Your Body Is In Sugar Shock
Sugar and its products increase blood sugar levels, which in turn forces our body to store more fat than usual.
Furthermore, sugar does nothing to create satiety or feelings of fullness.
Unfortunately, the end result is : we consume more food and store more fat.
Cravings For Food
It is common for those who eat large amounts of sugar, to be hungry after short period of time later. Simply put, if you desire to feel full for a longer period of time, it is advisable to abstain from sugar.
This stimulation is short-term and leads to a “crash” of sugar’s suppressive effect on our metabolic system.
Known as “reactive hypoglycemia,” a glucose (sugar) crash can create sudden feelings of fatigue after consuming a large amount of complex carbs.
Known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), excessive intake of sugar over a long period of time can irreparably damage this vital organ.
Interestingly, sugar metabolizes in the liver the same way that alcohol does. As such, this can lead to having fatty liver, insulin resistance and abnormal fat levels in the blood.
There are times when our cognitive faculties are not performing at levels necessary to perform daily tasks.
This could be due to a number of reasons and sugar is one of them.
Many sugar products undergo heavy processing which, when consumed, create overall feelings of lethargy and periods of “brain fog”.
Sugar stimulates release of free radicals, which adversely interacts with the proteins in the body.
This interaction produces a chemical response that results in inflammation of the joints and other areas of the body.
Diabetes is an accurate representation of this reaction, as the condition’s myriad symptoms include painful inflammation.
The truth is that excessive intake of sugar is toxic.
Anytime that a toxic substance is introduced into the complex entity that is the human body, many health problems can surface.
This is the result of sugar- directly or indirectly producing systematic, harmful responses in the body.
Many people diagnosed with diabetes visit a doctor with no other complaint than feelings of tiredness.
Just to be informed, sugar can be the root cause of anything – from obesity to impaired vision, from headaches to insomnia.
The only way to truly know for certain is to eliminate, or severely restrict the amount of sugar that you ingest on a daily basis.
If nothing else, your body will become much, much healthier as a result of NOT TAKING ANY SUGAR!
