Benefits of Breaking Up with Sugar


Out with the old, in with the new

The best way to get over a break up is to try something new, so swap to Canderel Sucralose, a low calorie sweetener. Canderel sticks have only has 2 kilojoules per teaspoon compared to 20 kilojoules per teaspoon of sugar. It looks like sugar and tastes even better. It is about 200 times sweeter so a little goes a long way. Try it and you will never look back!

Prevent tooth decay

Keep on smiling! If you want to keep your pearly whites, kick sugar to the curb because it provides easily digestible energy for the bad bacteria in the mouth to fester, breaking down minerals and tooth enamel, leaving you with cavities. Sweeteners are not sugar and have no effect on how the body digests carbohydrates or any effect on other food you may eat so you can indulge without affecting those perfect teeth. After all, a smile is the best accessory a woman can wear.

Break free from addiction

Kick the habit! Sugar can be addictive. Eating sugar releases dopamine in the reward centre of the brain. But if you have too much, it can cause a massive dopamine release, which can become addictive. Canderel doesn’t release any dopamine so it’s not addictive. However, you will love it so much, you won’t want to go without it. You can beat the addiction, without going to rehab . . .

Maintain weight and a healthy heart

People have blamed saturated fat for heart disease. However, evidence is mounting that sugar, NOT fat, may be one of the leading drivers of heart disease via the harmful effects of fructose on our metabolisms.  Studies have confirmed that sucralose has no effect on short or long-term blood glucose control for individuals with normal blood glucose levels or for individuals with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
