Avoid Aspartame Unless..

Avoid aspartame unless you have no regard for your own health and are willing to suffer its many short and long term ill effects.

If you do care about your health then avoid NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure which are the brand names for aspartame.  Aspartame is found in soda pop and many other food products that boast that they are “sugar free”.  But what you pay in exchange for that sweet taste without sugar is guaranteed disruption of your body’s physiology, especially your brain.

Aspartame is made up of aspartic acid (40%), phenylalanine (50%) and methanol (wood alcohol — 10%).   Upon digestion, aspartame releases its components which are absorbed into the bloodstream.  Aspartic acid converts to aspartate which can pass through the blood brain barrier and act directly on brain neurons as an excitatory neurotransmitter.  Excess amounts of excitatory neurotransmitters like aspartate in the brain have been shown to kill neurons in specific areas of the brain.  Long term exposure to these excitatory neurotransmitters has been shown to be associated with higher risk for Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis (MS), ALS, hypoglycemia, memory loss, dementia, epilepsy, brain lesions and more.

Dr. Joe Mercola (Mercola.com) reports on the ill effects of aspartame:

Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as part of aspartame dangers are:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Numbness
  • Muscle spasms
  • Weight gain
  • Rashes
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Tachycardia
  • Insomnia
  • Vision problems
  • Hearing loss
  • Heart palpitations
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Anxiety attacks
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of taste
  • Tinnitus
  • Vertigo
  • Memory loss
  • Joint pain

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame:

  • Brain tumors
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic fatigue Syndrome
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Mental retardation
  • Lymphoma
  • Birth defects
  • Fibromyalgia
