Filed under: Nutrition and Health — admin @ 2:28 pm

Fast-acting sugars (mainly glucose) can be found in sodas, industrial foods, white bread, canned fruits with sirup, low-value fruit juices, cookies, chocolate bars, candy, ice cream, etc.

Effects of too much fast-acting sugars:

– promotes acidosis
– depletes good nutrients from your body –> leads to deficiencies
– prevents proper breakdown of fat stores
– damages the cells and weakens immune system, leads to cancer
– encourages the growth of yeast and other pathogens in the digestive system
– weakens eyes and vision
– causes inflammation, hair loss, skin problems, hirsutism
– contributes to dehydration
