 Why not use Sugar Sucrose ?

•     Sugar is responsible for quickly boosting the energy while also delivering the body excessive amounts of kilocalories (kcal). A large number of kilocalories that are injected into the system are converted into unhealthy fat and stored in the body. This in turn results in obesity that plays an instrumental role in causing various diseases like coronary heart disease and type II diabetes.

•     Sugar is also liable for decreasing the efficiency of the immune system.

•     It impacts the appetite and thus increases the intake of food.

•     Responsible for increasing the secretion of magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and chromium, Sugar diminishes the levels of biotin, chlorine, and vitamin B1 in the body.

•     Interfering with the transference of vitamin C in the body, Sugar amplifies the production of free radicals that in turn cause oxidative damage and accelerate the aging process. It also diminishes the effects and benefits of vitamin E which is a strong and necessary antioxidant.
