We want to start this by telling you that if you’re debating whether to put a packet of sugar in your coffee or a packet of Sweet’N Low, please just use the sugar. Is it good for you? Not really. But is it a neurotoxin made in a lab by people who just want to make money? Also a no. And that’s just one of the many reasons why we need to stop consuming artificial sweeteners as a “healthy alternative” to sugar. Spoiler alert: they’re not! At all! Let’s talk about what this 0-calories “sugar” is, where we find it, and more importantly, what it is doing to our body and brain.
