Check Your Food Labels for This Toxic Chemical
There has been a ton in the news lately about gut bacteria and lots of new probiotics hitting the market that supposedly help your gut maintain its best health.
All of this information can lead to a ton of confusion about how to actually keep your gut healthy.
It’s becoming clearer that having good gut bacteria is super-important for good health…
But how do you get your gut into optimal health and keep it that way?
Well, there certainly are things you shouldn’t do…
And that includes taking most over-the-counter probiotics because they can disrupt how your body produces its own gut bacteria.
And there are things you SHOULD do, such as eating lots of fruit because this enhances your gut bacteria and health of your gut.
So those are the two basic rules.
But now there is a third rule.
On the list of things you shouldn’t do, please include “don’t eat artificial sweeteners.”
In addition to the other problems they cause, they’re really bad for your gut.
Take care of your gut, take care of your health.
You’re not super-likely to hear this from your doctor, but your gut is the center of your health.
If you take care of your gut then your whole life – as far as health goes – will be better.
Your gut can leak toxins into your system if it’s a mess… And it can create a strong immune system if it’s healthy.
But artificial sweeteners – which most people use once in a while and some people use regularly – kill the natural bacteria that promote gut health.
It’s not just one type of artificial sweetener either. It’s almost all of them.
“The collaborative study indicated relative toxicity of six artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose, saccharine, neotame, advantame, and acesulfame potassium-k) and 10 sports supplements containing these artificial sweeteners.”
To make matters worse, unlike many other things that require large quantities to be toxic, artificial sweeteners are toxic to gut bacteria in small concentrations.
“The bacteria found in the digestive system became toxic when exposed to concentrations of only one mg./ml. of the artificial sweeteners.”
1 mg is a tiny amount.
And here is the problem: A 12-oz can of soda has 200 mg of aspartame and only 355 ml of liquid.
So in just one can of diet soda you are reaching toxic levels of aspartame. It’s crazy, but it’s true.
To avoid artificial sweeteners you have to read labels.
In general, for most people, it’s far better to eat real sugar than artificial sweeteners in any quantity.
But the problem is that foods often contain artificial sweeteners without us knowing.
These aren’t always labeled as “diet” foods. And they often are labeled as sports supplements.
“Artificial sweeteners are used in countless food products and soft drinks with reduced sugar content. Many people consume this added ingredient without their knowledge…”
This means that if you want to avoid artificial sweeteners you must read labels.
These sweeteners come under both the generic names listed above and also brand names including:
- Sweet One
- Sugar Twin
Anything marked “sugar-free” or “low-calorie” that is sweet probably contains artificial sweeteners as well.
By reading labels, you can usually find and avoid most of them.
These substances are also in our groundwater and drinking water.
Unfortunately, these sweeteners are so widely used that they are now showing up in much of our drinking water – where they are much harder to avoid.
“Moreover, artificial sweeteners have been identified as emerging environmental pollutants, and can be found in drinking and surface water, and groundwater aquifers.”
This should make you mad if you aren’t already.
But the reality is that you can only control what you can control.
So, for myself, I try very hard to avoid artificial sweeteners in the food I buy and consume.
And I try not to worry about the rest.
Instead, I eat lots and lots of fruit.
Fruit has a balancing effect on the gut and can help keep your gut bacteria healthy.
Keeping your gut healthy is well worth it. A healthy gut helps to give you a healthy life.

Did you know that leaky gut can cause erectile dysfunction?
Millions of men have a condition called “leaky gut.”
A leaky gut lets bad bacteria into your body.
And those bacteria wreak havoc in your cells, ruin your erections, and kill testosterone.
They even cause blood sugar problems.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, you might have a leaky gut.
