SUGAR🍰FACTS & TIPS 🍰
Dear Shilajit Family, have you heard that an average American swallows each year—a whopping 130 pounds of added sugars? That's about 22 teaspoons a day, way over the max set by the American Heart Association.
🍭WHY REDUCE THE INTAKE?
► Weight gain: One teaspoon of sugar contains 15 calories, which can add hundreds of extra calories to your daily caloric intake.
► Tooth decay: Plaque bacteria, which is naturally present in your mouth, reacts to the sugars you consume by producing acids. It leads to cavities and decay.
► Health Problems: increases your risk of hypertension, diabetes, depression and certain types of cancer.
► Read nutrition labels to determine the amount of sugar
► Substitute regular pastries and sweets to the vegan ones
► Eat lots of products rich in fiber, especially greens (green smoothies/cocktails) It will help you to fill full and avoid an early hunger
► Reduce the amount of sugar slowly by substituting it with the natural one
❤Enjoy this sweet Saturday and take care of yourself!
