When people have an adverse reaction to sucralose it often goes unreported because it mimics other ailments or problems. Eating a muffin made with sucralose, for example, might give you a terrible headache but you could attribute this to a gluten intolerance, or any number of allergic reactions. One of the best ways to determine what the source of your sensitivity is is to do an elimination program. For example, stop eating everything that contains sucralose for 14 days and see if your symptoms improve. You could then start eating sucralose again and if the problem returns fairly quickly, you will have your answer.
If you have been using sucralose for an extended period of time, it might take your body three months or more to return to normal. Eating some fermented foods and taking probiotics can help return your digestive system to normal much more quickly.
Although the makers of Splenda will proudly say it’s made from sugar, but the truth of the matter is, chemically, it’s much more like DDT. There are many reasons the US outlawed DDT back in the early 1970’s, it’s a deadly toxin!
If you remember, Splenda came out in 2000, proudly stating it was made from sugar so you could expect it to taste just like sugar, with no ugly aftertaste. They were promptly sued by the makers of Equal who said that they were intentionally confusing consumers into thinking that their product was natural and health. The makers of Splenda settled out of court in 2007. They probably knew they would lose if they did go to court because sucralose is definitely not natural.
It’s best to avoid all artificial sweeteners, whether it is sucralose, aspartame, saccharin, neotame, or whatever is coming next down the pipeline. Although the actual mechanisms of harm may be slightly different from one to the other, every single one of these chemical sweeteners cause harm to your health, from one degree or another.
You don’t need these chemical products anyway, not when there are so many natural alternatives. Try raw honey, real maple syrup (not pancake syrup), date sugar, and coconut sugar.
