The Sweet Truth: Not All Sugar is Bad for You

If you've been tracking what's new in the world of health, you're probably aware that sugar is the new “S” word. Sugar is linked to many degenerative diseases and reducing your exposure to the sweet stuff may offer significant positive effects, such as balanced energy, decreased body fat, prevention or moderation of disease, anti-aging activity and a bolstered immune response.

While these benefits are certainly legitimate, not all sugar is equal in terms of how it affects your body. The difference between downing a tablespoon of the bleached cane sugar and munching on a fresh apple is significant, and sugar grams alone don't tell the whole story.

 

So, if you're looking to curtail your consumption, here are some points to remember:

There are different types of sugar. Your body turns all sugars into glucose, which is the form of sugar that it can readily use for energy. But sugar enters the body in many different forms, such as fructose, sucrose and lactose. These forms of sugar each have positive and negative attributes: for example, fructose can aggravate gut health, but does not raise blood sugar levels as quickly, making it superb for individuals who are watching the glycemic index of foods. Glucose raises blood sugar levels very fast, but it's also the easiest sugar to digest, and exceptional for any kind of physical endeavor. To discern the best forms of sugar for you, it's important to take your own personal health and activity level into consideration.
