Artificial sweetener aspartame found to increase anxiety (artificial sweeteners were still bad)
【Popular Artificial Sweetener Aspartame Increases Anxiety, Mouse Experiments Confirm】
・Artificial sweeteners are commonly used in diet foods and beverages, and the amount of artificial sweeteners that people consume from beverages today increased by 36% between 2007 and 2019
・Artificial sweeteners have also been linked to negative health effects, and a new study confirms that aspartame, one of the most popular artificial sweeteners, increases “anxiety” and its effects are even passed on to offspring in mouse experiments.
・RNA sequencing in the nervous system showed significant changes in the amygdala of the brain related to anxiety
・Some studies suggest that aspartame, when broken down in the body, is metabolized into aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol, which may affect the central nervous system
・Anxiety Behavior in Mice Drinking Aspartame-Infused Water Passed on to Offspring for Up to Two Generations
The above is a quote from the article and its contents
Aspartame, an artificial sweetener, is still bad.
Artificial sweeteners are bad for you. It is common knowledge to a little health geek like me that aspartame, the most common of them all, is bad for you.
However, what was quite surprising in this study was that the adverse effects were passed on for two generations.
I think this means that it goes quite deep into the body.
Incidentally, the amount of aspartame ingested by the mice in this study was equivalent to about 15% of the maximum daily intake recommended for humans by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In other words, even a small amount of aspamtail has a significant negative impact? It can be inferred that it is.
Aspartame was approved for use in the United States in 1981.
It has been almost 40 years since mankind began consuming aspartame. Is aspartame one of the causes of the anxiety that humanity is currently experiencing? I am delusional.^^
Well, that is an exaggerated idea,
Regardless, the results of this study are surprising in many ways, even though it is an experiment on mice.
I had thought that I would at least try to avoid taking artificial sweeteners and aspartame as much as possible,
I strongly felt that I should avoid taking artificial sweetener, aspartame, not as much as possible, but never.
See you then.
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame are often used in products that claim to be “diet***” or “zero calorie***.Also, gum, for example. It is impossible to not consume artificial sweeteners at all, but as much as possible, try not to continue to consume them.
