Health problems associated with sugar

The consumption of sugar is considered to be one of the three major causes of degenerative disease in America even by the American Diabetes Association.

SUGAR IS SO DESTRUCTIVE IT CAN PROBABLY BE LINKED TO JUST ABOUT ANY HEALTH CONDITION YOU CAN THINK OF AND THEN SOME.

One of the most important issues for anyone living with a chronic illness is the impact sugar has on the immune system. Sugar suppresses the immune system. Regardless of whether you’re trying to improve your health or protect it, removing sugar from your diet is probably one of the most important things you can do for your health. That and the avoidance of environmental toxins.

So how much sugar should you have?

A general rule of thumb for sustainable healthy living is to have no more than 25-35g of added sugars per day. This is why when using your Arbonne products, you will notice that you are only having a total of 7g per shake 2g per fizz and less then a gram in the greens. So even with a shakes & 2-3 fizz, we are still staying at 20g or less of added sugars.

There are few things in life where we have a lot of control of what happens to us, but the food we put into our bodies is something that is totally within our control. Making better choices in food has a significant impact on our level of health, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In addition it doesn’t require expensive lab work, prescriptions, remedies or trips to the doctor.

Why you need to read labels when shopping.

In conclusion, I know removing sugar from your diet is not as easy as you think. The problem is that sugar is used as an additive for preservation and to make things more palatable. So basically it’s found in most commercial foods. Unless you are living a health conscious life-style and picking your food wisely, sugar is in your ketchup, morning cereal, spaghetti sauce, soup, salad dressing, peanut butter, pancake syrup, bread, yogurt, you name it and it probably has sugar in it. They even put sugar in some salt and tea. Most importantly, this is why it’s so important to read labels very carefully and make different choices when shopping to decrease/eliminate sugar from your diet.
