What Sugar Does to Your Brain

CAUTION: Only read this blog post if you are truly ready to end your relationship with sugar. Once you know this, you can’t go back.

 

Have you ever been in one of those mid-day slumps where you can’t seem to think straight?

 

And in a daze you reach for the sugar-laden latte or a muffin?

 

Well, what if I told you that the way your brain experiences those stimulants lights up the exact same areas as cocaine? Crazy, right?!

 

New research is coming out every day on just how bad sugar is for the brain. It’s as bad for your brain as being in an extremely stressful or abusive situation 24/7.

 

Sugar addiction can actually impair the function of the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory and coping with stress.

 

The truth is when you go off sugar your brain starts to repair itself. The brain fog you deal with everyday disappears and you feel clear and focused like never before. When sugar is your primary fuel source, not only is it damaging you on a physiological level but it’s also impairing your higher mental functioning.

 

Using sugar or refined carbohydrates as a pick-me-up creates a vicious cycle, the effects of the sugar wear off quickly and the low energy returns with a vengeance. When you cut sugar out of your diet you transform this cycle and create stable, sustainable energy that allows you to actually focus and feel mentally clear. Just one of the many benefits of eliminating sugar from your life.

The Shocking Side Effects of Ditching Sugar

The Shocking Side Effects of Ditching Sugar

1.    You slow the ageing process

That’s right, you can stop dropping mad cash on those fancy skin creams and just make the switch to a sugar-free lifestyle. Glycation is a process which occurs in our bodies causing sugar to attach to collagen (the stuff that makes your skin appear smooth and tight). This causes inflammation and reduced effectiveness from the collagen and elastin which causes the skin to appear dull and wrinkles to appear more pronounced.

 

2.    You sleep better

It makes sense that less sugar would help with sleep since blood sugar irregularities are the second leading cause of insomnia. When you reduce or eliminate sugar you’ll also ensure that you get all the beauty sleep you need and wake up feeling excited instead of exhausted.

 

3.    You lose weight

Studies show reducing sugar is a much more effective way to lose weight than reducing fat. The best part is that you don’t have to cut calories or feel deprived with this system. It’s a sustainable and easy way to shed some pounds and increase your overall health. 

 

4.    Your immune system gets stronger

Sugar weakens the immune system making you more susceptible to foreign invaders and illness. When you ditch sugar, you’ll notice you get sick much less often and you’ll feel more energized.

5.    More brain power

 

You’ll find that when you get rid of sugar it’s much easier to focus and get your work done. Brain fog clears and you’re left feeling clear and confident.
