Why not excess added sugars?
- 1. No Major Health Benefits
- 2. Provides only Energy
- 3. Devoid of Natural Nutrition
- 4. Chemically Processed with Chemicals such as Sulphur Dioxide and Phosphoric Acid

1. Can make you Gain weight, increase risk of Obesity
Rates of obesity are rising worldwide and added sugar, especially from sugar-sweetened beverages and foods, is considered to be one of the major reasons for the weight gain.
2. May increase risk of Heart Disease
Diet rich in sugar can increase levels of Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides and LDL which may lead to Coronary heart diseases (CHD).
3. Increases Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Prolonged consumption of sugar drives the resistance to hormone regulating sugar which consequently leads to a spike in sugar levels in the body
4. Drains Your Energy
Foods high in added sugar quickly spike blood sugar and hormone regulating sugar levels, leading to increased energy. However, this rise in energy levels is temporary. Products loaded with sugar but lacking in protein, fiber, or fat lead to a brief energy boost that’s quickly followed by a sharp drop in blood sugar, often referred to as a crash and having constant blood sugar swings can lead to major fluctuations in energy levels.
5. Speedens tooth Decay
Eating too much sugar can cause cavities. Bacteria in mouth feed on sugar and release acid by-products, which cause tooth demineralization.
