The white crystalline substance we have come to know of as sugar is an unnatural substance produced by industrial processes. Sugar is produced mostly from sugar cane or sugar beets. It is refined down to pure sucrose. What’s so bad about that? This refinement process strips away all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes and other beneficial nutrients that your body could use.
What is left is a concentrated unnatural substance which the human body is not able to digest or make use of, at least not in anywhere near the quantities that is now ingested in today's ‘normal’ lifestyle.
Sugar is highly addictive. The average person now consumes approximately 115 lbs. of sugar per year. This is per man, woman and child.
The biggest reason sugar does more damage than any other poison, drug or narcotic is twofold:
- (a) It is considered a "food" and ingested in such massive quantities, and
- (b) The damaging effects begin early, from the day a baby is born and is fed sugar in its formula. Even mothers milk is contaminated with it if the mother eats sugar, and
- (c) Practically 95% of people are addicted to it to some degree or other.
When looking to cut some sugar out of your diet, there's been little to choose from apart from artificial sweeteners or honey – but now there's another prize-winning alternative natural option if your healthy side is at war with you sweet-tooth.
It is called sweet freedom and made from 100% fruit – using a chemical-free water extraction process from apple, grape and carob – has 25% fewer calories and contains 25g of fructose per 100g, compared to honey's 40g and 90g for agave syrup. Suitable for vegans, it's also low GL, or Glycaemic Load, meaning it won't cause a sugar spike in your system. We all know how sugar spikes feel, a little bit of high energy and then a sudden drop down till you find yourself wanting more to lift you up again. With Sweet freedom you can avoid that altogether.
