Effects of Excess Sugar

What happens to sugar in the body?


Excess consumption of sugar can lead to a wide range of ill health conditions. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas ceases to function effectively and is unable to produce insulin, resulting in other conditions such as heart disease, liver disease, and kidney failure. Excess sugar can also impair brain function and have a detrimental effect on your immune system. Too many sugary drinks and sweets can contribute to tooth decay, which can be costly or result in tooth loss.

According to studies, individuals who consume a large amount of sugar are more likely to get rheumatoid arthritis, which causes joint pain, as well as being more prone to depression and ageing skin.

When individuals consume sugar, it is converted to glucose and enters their bloodstream. Hormones in the body attempt to regulate blood sugar levels by excreting insulin from the pancreas. The liver processes fructose, and excess fructose is stored as fat in the liver, which may also lead to liver cirrhosis.

Hidden Sugar

Soil health has suffered as a result of climate change, raising the cost of producing and purchasing fresh fruits, vegetables and grains. Although the processing methods make processed food less expensive to produce, the food products lack essential nutrients, contain added sugar, and are high in fat and salt.

Climate Change

Sugar is present in a wide range of packaged foods, including canned vegetables and sauces. Cooking from scratch is the best way to avoid excess sugar. Plan your meals and healthy snacks ahead of time to avoid reaching for a convenient unhealthy snack. Avoid shopping when you're hungry to avoid making poor choices.

Reduce Sugar

When people first try to cut back on sugar, they frequently experience sugar cravings. Prepare a healthy snack, such as fruit or Brazil nuts, to satisfy these cravings. When someone believes they are hungry, they are more likely to be dehydrated and need to drink some water. Sugar cravings will fade over time. Other benefits of eliminating sugar from the diet include increased energy, lowered blood pressure, less oily skin and weight loss by using stored body fat.
