  • Beware! Artificial Sweeteners Are Out There!

    DangerSign1Artificial sweeteners are thought, by some, to be the answer to satisfying sweet cravings without a calorie overload. Saccharin, acesulfame, aspartame, neotame, and sucralose are all approved artificial sweeteners that are popping up in more and more of our food and beverage options.

    DANGER AHEAD!        

    But the danger behind these sweeteners is great, and shouldn’t be dismissed. Artificial sweeteners offer less calories than sugar, but sometimes we just fill that void by indulging in more sweet treats later on. “I had diet soda, so this candy bar is okay” is the logic to which many artificial sweetener addicts subscribe.

  • Saccharin’s Back!

    saccharin-300x300Sweet Saccharin!

    Saccharin, an artificial sweetener like sucralose, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium, was popular back in the day because it offered a cheap, calorie-free alternative to sugar. In the 1970s, however, research on the sweetener and its effects on the body led to global concern that it might cause cancer. As a result, Saccharin was banned in the U.S. and Canada.

    That was then…

    Fast-forward a few decades – after more research and more tests, officials have now been convinced it was a false alarm, and that saccharin can safely be added to our diets once again.

    Back in the game!

    Some may be surprised to find this, once-presumed-dangerous, sweetener Continue reading

  • Sugar and the Brain

    brain1-300x188It has been proven again and again that a high-sugar diet can lead to health problems such as weight gain, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Sugar also attacks another, very crucial, part of our bodies that we sometimes forget – the brain. Studies show that excessive intake of sugar (in any form) can impair cognitive abilities and have a damaging effect on memory.

    Researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) conducted a six-week test on rats to examine the effects sugar can have on the brain. A group of rats were given a fructose solution instead of drinking water, another group were given only water, and a third group were given the fructose solution along with Omega 3 fatty acids in the form of flaxseed and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).

    The rats in the fructose group had Continue reading

  • Fruits vs Vegetables: Which is Better?

    grapesHow many times in your life have you heard “Eat your fruits and vegetables”? Probably a lot! Now, what would you say if I told you that-that might not be the best advice for maintaining a healthy diet? It is true, fruits and vegetables are an integral part of any diet but fruits and vegetables are NOT the same thing! Many of us have come to believe that fruits and veggies are automatically good for you and while these foods are better for you than other processed options, too much fruit can actually be harmful to your health.
