What harm could gum be?! It's not like there is much sugar? Or heck it's just a little bit of an artificial sweetener!
But it can truly make that much of a difference.
Let's just look at the "P" word alone. This stuff is NASTY! It has been associated with mental deterioration!
And there is the fact that many of the sugar free gums contain aspartame that is just one nasty sweetener.
Further, what many don't realize: gum fakes out your digestive system....thus sending mixed signals!
Artificial sweeteners are just not a good idea!
Please take the time to check out all my highlighted links.
Bottom line is: artificial sweeteners set up your body with confusion. Thus making your digestive system to think it needs to do work when it doesn't. Thus making you hungry? Artificial sweeteners mess with your chemical receptors!
So, personally we should try to stay away from all gum! But I understand the need or want to have gum from time to time. I like to chew gum while I work out. So, I have found that the spry gum is the less offensive of all the choices. It's not perfect....but at least I receive no spikes in insulin. I won't experience brain fog, or other potential gunky stuff.
I hope my humble opinion is helpful!
hugs and prayers always!
