All Sweeteners Are NOT Alike...Con't

Final article on Sweeteners...the good the bad the ugly.

Did you learn that" You Are What You Eat?" How you "sweeten" your food makes a difference.  Poor choices DO affect the nervous system and brain, your mood, your digestion, your weight, your bones, your joints...the whole shabang!  Chiropractors adjust patients not only for physical traumas( physical subluxations) to the spine and nervous system, but also for chemical assaults ( chermical subluxations) via what you eat! Adjustments help reset buttons and clear your body but it would be better to use prevention regarding actions, thoughts, and food choices.

We have covered Splenda, Nutri Sweet, Sweet'NLo (sucralose, aspartame,saccharin respectively)...Let's look toward natural sources of sweetening.

 Natural Alternatives for Sweetening Your Food

Stevia is derived from the leaves of the stevia plant. It is virtually calorie free and comes in liquid and powder form. Because it is hundreds of times sweeter than regular sugar, you use much less of it.

Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol, made from a fermentation process of sugar cane or corn.  It contains more calories than stevia, but less than honey, and has an added benefot of helping to fight tooth decay.

Raw Organic Honey contains natural antioxidants, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.  When combined with cinnamon, both are beneficial for bladder infections, controlling blood sugar and cholesrterol and promoting weight loss.

Sugar in any form should be consumed in  moderation and in its most natural form, including in fruit.  Excess sugar consumption is now believed to be a leading contribtor to the obesity epidemic.

Use your common sense, listen to your inner wisdom (your innate intelligence) and keep your nervous system clear by receiving chiropractic adjustments.
