<b>WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BODY WITH TOO MUCH SUGAR?</b>

The exorbitant amount of sugar found in daily, processed foods, canned food, and soft drinks are too much for our body to handle. Research published in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in 2011 confirmed a "positive association" between drinking soft drinks regularly and the rising obesity epidemic. Sugar-sweetened beverages, particularly soda, provide little nutritional benefit and increase weight gain and probably the risk of diabetes, fractures, and dental caries, according to the research.

So what exactly happens when your body consumes more sugar than you need?

Weight gain

When you consume more sugar than the body can use, the body converts it into fatty acid and stores it for future use in adipose fatty cells, such as the hips, thighs, arms, and stomach.

Tooth decay

The waste product (acid) caused by sugar interacting with the surface of your teeth causes cavities. If you're not watching how much sugar you eat, you won’t have teeth left to eat it.

Onset of early diabetes

When you eat anything with glucose in it, your body releases insulin to help process that glucose into energy. The problem arises when people have too much sugar at once, there's a large release of insulin, which can cause hypoglycemia or insulin resistance. When that happens, your body is unable to properly absorb the glucose fast, which causes the glucose to build up in your bloodstream and liver. This can lead to pre-diabetes, and eventually diabetes.

Anxiety and depression

Eating a lot of sugar causes our brain to release a feel-good chemical called dopamine. dopamine, the "feel-good" chemical. However, excess sugar can cascade into hormonal reactions that eventually bring blood sugar levels down, causing symptoms of depression like anxiety, irritability, fatigue, and more.
