Sucralose

While the affects of aspartame have been well-publicized, those of the artificial sweetener sucralose are not as well known. Sucralose is marketed as Splenda whose ads say “made from sugar so it tastes like sugar”.

What the ads don’t tell you is that sucralose is sugar bonded to chlorine, making it a toxic chlorocarbon!

Some common neurological side effects are headaches, migraines, dizziness, brain fog, anxiety, depression, and tinnitus. Another side effect is weight gain which rather defeats the point!

Sucralose prevents nutrient absorption and reduces the amount of good bacteria in your intestines by 50%. This leads to an overabundance of bad bacteria which has numerous negative affects on your brain including damage to the hippocampus, the part of the brain where memory is stored.
