Top Ten Acid Foods: #7 Artificial Sweeteners

Top Ten Acid Foods: #7 Artificial Sweeteners | The Basic Life | Scoop.it
Sugar is extremely acid-forming, but turning to artificial sweeteners could be even more harmful to your health.

Here's why...

COMPARE MOST POPULAR SUGAR SUBSTITUTES

Saccharin (Sweet n Low)
Saccharin was produced by a chemist working on coal tar derivatives.

Studies in laboratory rats during the early 1970s linked saccharin with the development of bladder cancer in rodents.

Aspartame (Equal, Nutrasweet)
According to the latest studies in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine and The European Ramazzini Foundation, aspartame is carcinogenic and linked to liver and lung cancer.

Sucralose (Splenda)
Studies on Sucralose revealed that at certain doses it reduced the amount of fecal microflora in rats, increased the pH level in the intestines, and contributed to increases in body weight.

A new study shows that sucralose can affect insulin response, making it more risky for those who are diabtiec or disposed to becoming diabetic–the people most likely to consume sugar-free products.

SO WHAT'S SAFE TO USE?

Artificial sweeteners are even more acidic than natural sugar, but there are healthier alternatives like agave nectar, stevia, real maple syrup, or raw honey.

When it comes to pH, balance is the key to a healthy alkaline lifestyle.
