Are YOUR Sweeteners Causing Weight Gain?
Been You may not think gut issues are related to weight issues, but they can be, and sweeteners can actually cause issues in the gut that can contribute to weight issues.
As such, with the many different types of sweeteners its important to know which sweeteners are the healthiest for your gut and weight.
The Worst Sweeteners that Can Cause Weight Gain
Let’s start with the worst list of sweeteners that can cause weight gain.
Most sweeteners with OL in the name are low-calorie but very difficult to absorb. Some are synthetic, others are natural and because they’re hard to digest, you might experience diarrhea, gas and bloating.
Sometimes your bloating can actually cover up any weight loss success. So, steer clear of these ‘bad’ boys.
The Moderately Bad Sweeteners
Some of these are sugar alcohols which can cause gastrointestinal issues and gas, such as erythritol. Others, like sucralose, is synthetic and less than 20 percent can be absorbed by the gut, and it won’t give you diarrhea. Bonus, if you don’t care that it is synthetic but there is a major caveat to this:
Sucralose is known to interact and cause issues with gut bacteria. A disrupted balance of gut bacteria can lead to or be part of leaky gut, chronic inflammatory conditions and weight gain/issues losing weight. The gut is the epicenter of the immune system. When you mess with this, everything can get thrown off kilter. We recommend staying away, far, far away, from this. We put these in the same category as saccharin and aspartame. Just don’t do it.
