People who are suffering from diabetes can’t naturally regulate their blood sugar levels and often need medications or other interventions to help keep them under control and prevent the development of inflammation throughout the body. This, unfortunately, leaves them in a situation where they need to limit their intake of sugars and drastically change their diet – for good.
Over the years, we’ve found ways to solve that problem with a variety of artificial sweeteners that delivered on the well-known sweet taste but didn’t raise blood sugar levels or even bring on additional calories. Unfortunately, the majority of these artificial sweeteners have proven not to be the best option for your gut microbiome and your digestive system.
Studies even show how despite their minimal caloric content, in some situations they might even cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, making them detrimental to your health and especially harmful if you’re a diabetic. Luckily, we now know natural, healthy sweeteners that won’t raise your blood sugar levels even if you take them in excess, and they bring a variety of other health benefits to the table.
