Nectresse; my newest obsession (♥)

When you think "all natural" very rarely do you think,delicious! That is in the past, the makers of Splenda bring the all new Nectresse %100 Natural No Calorie Sweetener as a substitue for sugar and let me tell you, you can NOT tell the difference except maybe pants sizes going down once you cut out that yucky white stuff. :) Nectresse is made from the naturally sweet extract of monk fruit. What is a monk fruit you ask? It is a naturally sweet way to reduce sugar and calories. You might not have heard of monk fruit before. That’s because it has traditionally been grown on steep forested mountains in small family orchards, so until now there just hasn’t been a lot of it. According to legend monk fruit is named after the Buddhist monks who first cultivated it nearly 800 years ago. Ever since then it has been treasured for its health-giving powers and its unique low-calorie sweetness. Now here’s the good news - the world has finally discovered this amazing little fruit. That means you and your family will be able to enjoy the healthy, great-tasting sweetness of monk fruit in some of your favorite foods and beverages. No unlike alot of the subsitutes out there it is actually good for you and have nothing negative in it! I have made literally everything that calls for sugar with Nectresse instead and none of my three children or fiance have been able to tell the difference! :) Here are just a few facts Im sure you never knew about sugar and your health. 1. Sugar cause sudden increase in glucose level. Uneven sugar level in your blood often cause mood changes, sudden tiredness, constant headache and the desire to eat even more sugar. Slowly it becomes a habit and new dose of sugar cause only temporary relief, however after few hours sugar deficiency and hunger become even stronger. On the other hand, those who don’t overuse sugar feel stronger and more vital. 2. Sugar increases the risk of obese, diabetes and heart diseases International researches showed that there is a correlation between usage of glycolic products including sugar and obesity or diabetes. Such products also increase the risk of heart diseases. Newest researches found some evidences that glycemic products can be biased with various cancer forms. 3. Sugar cause immune system disorders. When experimenting with animals it was discovered that sugar block immune reactions. Further research is needed but it is now known that bacteria and yeast need sugar to grow. In the presence of imbalance between these materials (bacteria and sugar) human immune system can become weaker. As a result people tend to ill a lot more. 4. Large doses of sugar cause chromium deficiency in the body. People who constantly consume large amounts of sugar or other refined carbohydrates do not get enough chromium which is mainly responsible for regulating sugar level in the blood. Chromium can be found in many animal or vegetative products and also in the seafood products. Refined carbohydrates take chromium away from these products. 5. Sugar cause aging. Negative effects on your skin can be attributed to sugar. Certain parts of sugar molecules when entering into blood join with the proteins – this is called glycolisis. As a consequence new structures are formed which reduce body tissue integrity. To put it simply, the more sugar is in your blood the faster you become older. Well not you, your body does. 6. Sugar cause dental decay. This aspect of sugar on your teeth is often omitted. Sugar is one of the most caries producing foods in the world. To test that, you can throw a tooth into a glass of coca cola, eventually you will see that sugar don’t whiten and strengthen your teeth. 7. Sugar cause dental disease, later it can develop into heart disease. It was proved that chronic periodontal infections stimulate coronary artery disease. Dental problems often lead to heart disease. 8. Sugar effects on your kids’ health and learning abilities. Many parents notice that sugar has effect on their children behavior. Kids react to raw sugar and sweeteners more or less the same so difference between sugar and sweeteners research haven’t shown noticeable difference. Now a little bit about kids’ cognitive abilities. In 1979-1983 period New York Schools participated in the interesting experiment. All food products with sugar, artificial sweeteners and dyes where removed from pupil’s breakfast and lunch. The results where shockingly positive. Overall grades have increased by about 15,7 percent while test group achieved only 1,7% improvement. 9. Sugar and Stress While in stressful situation body releases stress hormone cortisol. This hormone also makes himself more prevalent when sugar levels in blood decrease. For example when you eat a piece of cake, the sugar levels sharply increase after a while it decrease sharply also. At the time stress hormones are activated. They quickly pump more sugar and energy into the body. The problem is that those useful hormones can cause anxiety, irritation and sudden change of mood. 10. Sugar obtrudes important nutrients. Scientists warn that people who consume lots of sugar don’t have important nutrients in they ration, especially vitamins A, C, B12, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Sadly enough, kids fall into this category and they are those who need these nutrient the most. So who is NOW ready to make the switch?
