Does Sugar Substitute Causes Constipation
Can stevia cause cavities? (sweet leaf the only sugar substitute from a plant not made of chemicals)
Not enough research: Just yesterday, american heart association & american diabetes association published a joint scientific statement on use of non-nutritive sweeteners, including stevia, aspartame, sucralose, etc. Bottomline, not enough human studies to determine good from bad. Check it out at http://circ. Ahajournals. Org/content/early/2012/07/09/cir.0b013e31825c42ee. Full. Pdf. ...Read more
no it is a sugar, just like sucrose or table sugar. In fact some evidence suggest that it might lead to fatty liver and metabolic abnormalities - especially in the usual dietary form as high fructose corn syrup - which is used in many products as a cheap substitute for regular sugar - which in excess is not good for you either ...Read more
No better/no worse: They're all about the same. Use whatever you think tastes better. Some can't be used in baking. ...Read more
Depends: There are three main sugar substitutes-equal, slenda & nutrisweet. They have been tested extensively and are believed to be safe, although some people can have some sensitivities to one or another. Then there is stevia, which is plant based. Btw-just because something is natural doesn't necessarily make it safe. The saying-everything in moderation, is the best way to go. Best wishes. ...Read more
Splenda: That's a good question. Several animal studies have shown that splenda (sucralose) can have multiple adverse effects on the body. It is difficult to translate that information to humans, and you probably consume far less than was given to the animals, but I think it is safe to say that the best advice is to use it in moderation. ...Read more
Not so much: The first big randomized controlled study to determine the benefits of xylitol in reducing caries in a susceptible population found no statistically significant benefit. I think that the important lesson here is that while xylitol is not a magic bullet, there is much wisdom in limiting the amount of sugar consumed and xylitol may help. ...Read more
Xylitol for anti-cav: Saccharin, sorbitol, xylitol, and a few others. The best one is xylitol because it has anti-cavity properties. It inhibits the growth of cavity causing bacteria and also makes the saliva less acidic, chewing gum also increases salivary flow. Saliva cleanses the teeth and buffers plaque acids. So only chew gum that contains xylitol. ...Read more
You can, however...:
Most sugar substitutes like NutraSweet and Splenda are toxic and should be avoided. Truvia is relatively safe, though its marketing claim of being "all natural" is dubious. See https://authoritynutrition. Com/truvia-good-or-bad/
Its main ingredient is erythritol from GMO corn. I prefer to use pure erythritol in bulk from non-GMO sources (cheaper too). See

None of them are!: Study the evidence. The trials in the 1970s triggering cancer in rats with cyclamate + saccharin used gigantic doses & have no clear relevance to either usual dosages or humans. Study: http://www. Cancer. Gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/artificial-sweeteners. However, there is evidence that real sugar is linked to a higher incidence of cancer, both directly and through promoting obesity. ...Read more
Studies say artificial sweetner can lead to weight gain and/or increase blood sugar level (Src:'sugar substitute' in wiki).Does Stevia has same effect?
Absolutely, however: Mechanism of weight gain/↑ed blood sugar clearly not the artificial sweeteners per-se. Far more likely the issue is supporting/promoting behaviors of seeking sweet tastes & eating more carbs while thinking this would be OK, compensated for by the artificial sweetener. Tiny imbalances, over time, will produce significant changes in body fat. ...Read more
Constipation: Some foods pull water into the stool (like prunes) and some foods remove water (like cereals and rice). To prevent constipation -- if you are otherwise well -- make sure you are taking in enough fluids and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Fluids in foods, tea, coffee, and water all count, but to be healthy, limit your intake of sugary drinks and alcohol. ...Read more
No: Because the active ingredient in dupholac, Lactulose, is itself a sugar. However, how it works is that it is not absorbed by the body but instead broken down to acids, which act to hold water in the stools to soften them and make them easier to pass, thereby alleviating constipation. ...Read more
Yes they are: Hi. Sugar is healthy as long as it's not overdone. Sugar has calories and can be converted to fat for storage. Artificial sweeteners have no calories, but provide nothing healthy to the body. I don't keep any artificial sweeteners in my house, but I also use little real sugar. Live healthy! ...Read more
Aspartame, Splenda or sugar? Are artificial sweeteners as bad for you as sugar or are they worse?
Today the most common artificial sweeteners include saccharin, aspartame, sucralose and ace-k and they are 100% synthetically produced.
The reason why these artificial sweeteners do not raise blood sugar levels is because they do not contain carbohydrates and depending on the type of the synthetic sweetener they are not absorbed and leave your system unaltered. ...Read more

Are artificial sweeteners are good for health? I am afraid of diabetics so regularly I am using them. Wipro and sugar free gold are good brands?
Stevia: It's best to stay away from chemical sweeteners. Give stevia a try. It's a root made into a powder and is very sweet so you only need a little. Once you stop using chemical sweeteners (which are toxic to the brain) your body will work to eliminate them. Hydration and exercise will help. ...Read more

I'm on grain dairy/legume nut sugar candida free diet (nutritionist suggested it and still terribly constipated. What am I doing wrong? Help me please
My stool is yellow why is that and constipated I have a really bad diet and can it be from sugar and not eating veggies?
Vegetables: Eating more fruits and vegetables can help with your constipation cause they contain fiber. Having processed sugar and flour in your diet and other processed foods have little to no fiber and contribute to constipation. Try to eat half your plate as vegetables. Beans are also a good source of fiber and try to have about a gallon of water a day- to make sure the fiber and fluids make a soft stool. ...Read more
