Sugar addiction is real and it’s dangerous because of the damage that sugar causes to our bodies. Too much of it can lead to:
- Weight gain/obesity
- Depression & anxiety
- Metabolic syndrome = high blood pressure, diabetes, belly fat, stroke, heart disease, blurred vision
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
- Autoimmune disease
How can this happen? You may have heard that sugar causes an increase in insulin but don’t understand what that means. Here’s a brief explanation: Insulin is a hormone that’s produced by the pancreas to transport the glucose from the blood to the cells. It helps in maintaining the normal levels of your blood sugar. When continually elevated due to too much sugar consumption, the hormone can’t perform as it normally would which is to regulate levels of blood sugar. This wreaks havoc on your systems.
Another effect from sugar addiction is “leptin resistance.” Leptin is a hormone that is believed to signal your brain when your stomach is full. When these levels are out of whack, you may feel hungry all the time no matter how much you eat.
In addition, a person can develop a resistance to sugar thereby causing a “need” for more and more of it. This happens because sugar no longer tastes as sweet or doesn’t give a rise in dopamine (the feel-good hormone) as quickly as before.
And, more concerning of all the effects of sugar on the body is that the Alzheimer’s Association has not linked total sugar intake over time may affect cognitive function, with higher amounts potentially increasing the risk for Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is also called Type 3 diabetes.
