Indulging your sweet tooth is firstly going to affect your health – obesity, increase in blood sugar level and increasing the risk of heart disease are just some of the many potential health issues.
Sugar also reduces testosterone levels. In a study, guys aged from 19 to 74 were given 75g of sugar, twice the recommended daily intake for men. After consuming the sugar, their testosterone levels were tested and it showed a 25 percent decrease on average.
If you’re craving for sugar, opt for fruits or other healthy snacks that contain naturally occurring sugar! However, if you need that sugar in your cup of coffee every morning, choose stevia instead of normal sugar as the stevia is derived from plants and it is 200 times sweeter that normal sugar!
