If you want to lose a few pounds, refined sugar is one of the first things you should exclude from your diet – everyone probably knows that. Sugar affects weight loss, health, mood and many other factors related to human health. We’ll tell you the less common ones.
Sugar consumption supports the desire to “always have an appetite for something”
When sugar is consumed, there is a change in taste control. Sugar has negative effects on some parts of the human brain. Self-control is declining. Consumption of sugar is an impulse for the brain to increase production, which causes hunger and, conversely, a hormone that reduces appetite ceases to manifest in the body. The result is an irresistible taste for caloric and unhealthy foods such as “fryers” or donuts.
After stopping sugar, memory improves
Sugar attacks and damages the neurons in the brain, reducing memory and learning. If you consume sugar for a long time, neurons will be permanently damaged.
Sugar increases the negative effects of free radicals, which damage cells and create so-called oxidative stress.
Especially children under 6 years of age are easily affected by refined sugar. During this period, children develop rapidly and the damage that sugar causes is irreversible. Sugar slows down and limits the development of neurons, and thus generally slows down or negatively affects the development of children. Because the taste for sweets is coded, it is important that parents consistently control their children’s diets.
Sugar promotes acne
Collagen in the skin starts to malfunction when sugar is consumed excessively. Collagen reduces the formation of wrinkles, provides hydration to the skin and leaves it soft. In the absence of collagen, the skin begins to produce more sebum, resulting in unsightly and unpleasant acne.
Blood sugar interferes with insulin production. The skin then starts to look tired, gray and dull.
