Are Artificial Sweeteners as Bad as Sugar?

Next time you reach for a Diet Coke, you might as well just grab a Classic Coca-Cola because both drinks may be similarly detrimental to your health, according to a recent study mentioned in a recent article posted by The Telegraph. If you think artificial sweeteners are the way to go for getting skinny, think again. According to The Telegraph’s article posted on October 21, 2016, “Two diet drinks a day could double the risk of diabetes, study finds.” Artificially sweetened products are definitely NOT the place to look to succeed on any diet.

“Two fizzy drinks a day could double the risk of diabetes - even if they are diet versions - a Swedish study has found.”

“The artificial sweeteners in the diet drinks may stimulate and distort appetite, they said, increasing food intake, and encouraging a sweet tooth. Such sweeteners might also affect microbes in the gut leading to glucose intolerance.”

If you have been using artificial sweeteners for years and years, there is a great chance that you have destroyed the good bacteria in your intestinal tract. Learn how to restore your healthy gut bacteria with the Silver Fern™ Elevated Probiotic Plan.
