How it effects your health:
Too much sugar will not only add to your body weight, it will specifically raise cholesterol levels, and will overall impact your health negatively. The chemicals in sugar effect the balance of neurotransmitters in your brain – even create a chemical dependency! – which are vital to your physio-emotional well-being. When they get out of balance they cause instability in mood and physical health (i.e. weight fluctuations, poor sleep, digestive complications, etc).
Supporting the change:
To change the desire for sugar means changing your habits: eating a diet balanced in favor of unprocessed, natural foods (plants!), getting adequate sleep, exercising regularly…all the usual advice. It’s difficult, yes! It’s worth it, absolutely. Swanson is our favorite vendor of vitamin-supplements – no sponsorships affiliations here, their selection is just the most extensive and affordable we’ve found! – and to conquer the sugar urge, and support your natural digestive system there are several herbs that may help, including: artichoke, cinnamon, mulberry, gymnema, nopal.
