The Dangers of Aspartame

Posted on 25/09/2017

The next generation of energy drinks wage war on Aspartame and sugar!

What if we told you that your diet drink is actually causing you to gain weight? Many diet foods, diet drinks and sugar free products often contain a common sweetener called Aspartame, more commonly known as NutraSweet.

During recent studies it has been suggested that Aspartame can cause weight gain any many serious health problems. Continue reading to find out more…

The Dangers of Aspartame

It has been proved that the consumption of aspartame has been associated with ‘metabolic syndrome’, responsible for, amongst other things; high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess belly fat and high cholesterol / triglyceride levels. Aspartame breaks down into two amino acids which convert into formaldehyde and diketopiperazine which humans are unable to safely process. That’s formaldehyde as in embalming fluid folks – a chemical used in the preservation of dead bodies!!

If this still isn’t enough to put you off, every study telling us all that aspartame is safe to consume has been industry led. However, 92 percent of studies funded independently discover adverse effects. An independent report by Dr H.J Roberts led him to coin the term ‘Aspartame Disease,’ and was the subject of his book published in 2001. Dr Roberts attributed the consumption of Aspartame with some of the following life limiting conditions; Diabetes, Low blood sugar, Convulsions (seizures), Headache, Depression and other mental disorders, Hyperthyroidism, High blood pressure, Arthritis, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease Lupus, Brain tumours, Carpal tunnel.

What if we told you that there is a revolutionary new alternative to these toxic, ‘diet’ products? Introducing BCAA Energy Drink from Xtreme Energy Group Ltd – Containing No Sugar, No Aspartame, No Poison!  We have replaced the poisonous Aspartame with Sucralose. Sucralose is made through a patented, multi-step process that starts with sugar and selectively replaces three hydrogen-oxygen groups on the sugar molecule with three chlorine atoms. The result is an exceptionally stable sweetener that tastes like sugar, but without sugars calories. Sucralose is a natural product and unlike Aspartame it passed the European Food Safety Authority’s scrutiny without any cautionary advice. They reported that sucralose has zero impact on the body. When consumed, most of the sucralose is not absorbed by the body and is eliminated through excretion. Between 8% and 20% enters the blood and is removed through urine, essentially unchanged.

The Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for sucralose, established by the Joint Food and Agricultural Organization / World Health Organization Expert Committee on Food Additives, is 0 to 15 mg/kg body weight/day. In the studies reviewed, even when exposure levels were several orders of magnitude greater than the recommended ADI, sucralose did not demonstrate carcinogenic activity.

After being discovered, sucralose was put through a conclusive safety testing program over a 20-year period. Today sucralose is permitted for use worldwide.
