Do you know what are the harmful properties of sugar? Let’s see, sugar is one of the most consumed products in the world; we all love it and eat it on a daily basis. So, why is it so bad for the body? Sugar has empty calories and nothing nutritious to offer.  So what can we do to avoid these harmful effects of sugar? First, we need to eat a well-balanced diet that contains vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy products. Make sure that you are getting all the nutrients you need from your food or if necessary include multivitamin tablets. And second, drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated.

Spikes Insulin Levels

The biggest problem is that when there is excess sugar consumption in the body, it can result in insulin resistance, which is a precursor to diabetes. High amounts of insulin can also affect other functions in the body, for instance, it can interfere with how our fat is absorbed by the liver and can even change how our brain cells work. Not to mention, high levels of sugar can also damage the nerves in our brain. It can also make us prone to heart diseases and other cardiac problems.

Accelerate Skin Aging

When sugar enters the bloodstream, it destroys the proteins responsible for the production of collagen and elastin, which can cause wrinkles and dryness on the skin. And it also produces new harmful substances like it makes your skin more susceptible to the sun, which is the main factor of aging.

Promotes Inflammation

Sugar can literally aggravate the inflammation, which means it increases the occurrence of pimples and wrinkles. It can also increase the risk of various diseases such as arthritis.

May Cause Depression & Increase Anxiety

According to studies, sugar can cause depression. It happens because sugar decreases the level of BDNF hormone, which is less in people with schizophrenia and depression. Too much sugar can also increase anxiety. Sugar can damage the link between brain cells responsible for memory and learning.

Conclusion

Are you still not happy with your diet? Then take a natural sugar alternative instead. These alternatives are made from organic fruits and plants that contain the exact amount of sugar that we need, minus the calories. With these products, you can easily get the energy you need and still keep your weight under control.

So, what about desserts? Can sugar really get in your food? The answer is yes. You have to make sure that you don’t eat too much ice cream or sorbet because they are usually laden with sugar. Opt for healthy alternatives of desserts made from nut butter, fruits, yogurt etc.

Like it or not, sugar can actually damage our bodies. Aside from the fact that it can lead to obesity, it can also cause high blood pressure, kidney problems, diabetes and even cancer. So before it’s too late, take note of the health consequences of sugar. It’s time to kick the habit and start living healthy now.
