Aspartame, also known as Nutra-Sweet or simply E951, is a chemically manufactured sugar substitute that was discovered in Chicago in 1965 by a chemist from a subsidiary of pesticide manufacturer Monsanto. Aspartame is now found in more than 9000 "foods" and is responsible for the artificial sweetness of many sweets and other products. In the past, the active ingredient was repeatedly sold to us by various corporations as a harmless additive, but since In recent years, more and more studies have come to light that have proven the complete opposite. In this article you can find out exactly what aspartame does in our body and why you should avoid this substance.
A chemical poison with serious consequences
The chemical name for aspartame is "L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester" and it has 200 times the sweetening power of sugar. At that time, the American company GD Searle & Co. developed a process in which phenylalanine was produced inexpensively using genetically manipulated bacteria. Originally, aspartame was also to be used by the CIA as a biochemical weapon of war, but the decision was made for reasons of profit and this toxin found its way into the supermarkets (the reason for this was the sweetness and the inexpensive production).
Many people consume small doses of aspartame every day, but the effects of aspartame are serious. Various studies have found out over the years that this chemical poison causes massive physical damage. It damages cell DNA, is responsible for the formation and growth of cancer cells, promotes chronic diseases, allergies, Alzheimer's, depression, triggers circulatory disorders, leads to fatigue, arthritis, weakens short and long-term memory, etc. There are over 92 documented symptoms in total triggered by aspartame.
3 basic chemical substances are responsible for the side effects
As soon as aspartame is absorbed by the body, it breaks down into 3 very toxic basic substances (phenylalanine, aspartic acid, methanol). Phenylalanine is converted by the body into phenylpyruvic acid, which causes stunted growth and mental imbalance. In addition, a high phenylalanine content in the blood leads to a reduction in the body's own serotonin level.
Serotonin is a so-called "feel good" hormone and is essential for our well-being. A low serotonin level is expressed in the fact that we are often in a bad mood, anxious or even depressed. The second basic substance is the dangerous aspartic acid. In higher doses, aspartic acid causes severe chronic neurological disorders. Normally, the blood-brain barrier prevents excessive levels of aspartame in the brain. However, excessive and daily intake overloads the natural barrier and triggers severe neuronal damage. The insidious thing about aspartic acid is the fact that 75% of the brain cells are already damaged before clinical symptoms of the disease appear in the organism. The consequences are hearing loss, epilepsy, hormonal problems, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and other diseases.
The third substance is called methanol, chemically methyl alcohol, and is at least as harmful as its predecessors. Even small amounts of methanol damage all nerve cells, especially the optic nerve and brain cells. Methanol is also broken down in the body and converted into formaldehyde, also known as formalin. Formalin is a neurotoxin that damages the mucous membranes, causes irritability and, above all, accelerates the growth of cancer cells. In addition, formaldehyde can cause nasopharyngeal cancer if inhaled.
Soft drinks are aspartame bombs
Today, aspartame is found in countless foods. Especially soft drinks or rather light products are packed with aspartame. Products such as diet coke, light lemonade and other light drinks should therefore be avoided. Aspartame is also found in countless desserts, confectionery, spreads, jams, canned fruit and shellfish, dairy products and chewing gum. At the end of the day, it's not us who benefit from our carelessness, only billions of corporations.
Corporations like Coca Cola and Co. are not interested in our health, but solely in our money, because these corporations are stock market-oriented companies that have to remain competitive. Of course, these products are talked up to us with nice advertising and fake studies, but the truth cannot be swept under the table. Too many people now know about the individual toxins and scams of the corporations and are beginning to boycott these products, with success. Anyone who banishes this poison from their daily diet will feel much more life energy and mental clarity after a short time. The body's own functionalities improve and well-being increases enormously. In this sense stay healthy, happy and live a life in harmony.
