Chronic consumption of processed carbohydrates and refined sugar speeds up the aging process while leaving our brains working at a snail’s pace. Many people now realize that sugar is not good for them, so they substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners such as Splenda and aspartame. Unfortunately, these artificial sweeteners interfere with metabolism, and for many people, brain health as well. On this episode we talk specifically about the sweeteners aspartame, sucralose (Splenda), and saccharin that are found in a wide range of foods. Hosts Brenna Thompson and Kate Crosby tell you what you need to know about these artificial sweeteners and how to avoid them.
