Are artificial sweeteners helping or harming your gut health?

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

ALERT‼️ Did you know artificial sweeteners are PLAYING you? Especially if you experience chronic bloating, headaches, overeating, inflammation, digestive issues, mood swings, and have a hard time focusing. These “low calorie, harmless” options you reach for with your health / fitness goals in mind... they very well could be a serious contributing factor to all these concerns and then some.

Not only do artificial sweeteners kill your gut health / seriously disrupt your digestion but strong research has linked the use of these to ADHD, mood disorders, impaired glucose tolerance and metabolic detriment via rewiring the reward center of the brain (resulting in overeating/ constant hunger). Wild right?😳

So wait! “Call them out by name, I need to know what to look out for” you say - 📌click that save button cause here we go:

Artificial Sweeteners to avoid to save you the pain:

🍬Aspartame (aka NutraSweet and Equal, the blue packet)

🍬Acesulfame-K (aka Sweet One)

🍬High Fructose Corn Syrup

🍬Sugar Alcohols (Maltitol, anything ending with “tol” really)

🍬Saccharin (aka the pink packet, Sweet'N Low)

🍬Sucralose (aka the yellow packet, Splenda)

Are just a few

And here are some gut friendlier, non inflammatory options to swap these out with should you choose:

🍯Local Raw Honey

🍯Maple Syrup

🍯Date Syrup / Dates


🍯Coconut Sugar
