Sugar makes you old…Sugar kills. There is no better way of putting it. Sugar has a high glycemic index-giving us a rush of energy and then a fast crash. In our society we tend to overindulge in sugar. If we are consuming too much sugar, the excess amount will be left in the bloodstream and the sugar particles will start to stick to the cells. This causes wrinkles, lack of mobility in joints, and dry and damaged nails and hair.
I guarantee that if you reduce the amount of sugar you consume, you will notice changes in the way your skin looks. Notice acne and pre-mature wrinkles disappearing and firmer skin forming. The reasoning behind this is that foods that are high in sugars cause inflammation of the skin. This leads to high levels of free-radicals, which in turn, deplete collegian. Lack of collegian causes wrinkles, brittle nails, and thin hair.
Sugar Makes You Old
If you have a sweet tooth, try substituting most of your sugary foods with fruits. Berries would be a great choice-they are very sweet and high in anti-oxidants, known to combating aging. Also, instead of using refined sugar to sweeten your drinks or foods, use agave nectar. Agave nectar is sweeter than sugar and has a low glycemic index. I use the Whole Foods brand of Agave nectar. You can even substitute Agave Nectar for sugar in baking pastries. It tastes amazing over organic, gluten-free waffles and french toast. I also dip my strawberries in the Whole Foods Agave Nectar. In fact, a nice substitute to cinnamon rolls is a slice of gluten free cinnamon raisin bread sprinkled with Agave Nectar. Mmmmmmmm so good!
