Simple carbohydrates are poison for the brain. When it gets used to eating sugar in excess all the time, it becomes lazy. Sugar is a “sweet death,” and this is partly true because if you exceed the daily intake of this product, you can get a number of serious health problems. Neurologist Derya Uludyuz advised abstaining from sugar for at least two weeks to feel a noticeable improvement in your health.
How much sugar can you eat per day?
Nutritionists recommend that healthy people limit their sugar intake. You can consume no more than 25-30 grams per day, but we eat much more.
Derya Uludyuz said in an interview with a Turkish newspaper that the daily sugar intake is found, for example, in half a banana.
Sugar is harmful
The expert claims that after eating sweets, the feeling of fatigue increases, because with excessive sugar consumption, the hormones endorphin and serotonin are produced less.
Sugar causes premature aging and dullness of the skin, as well as the formation of more acne. In men, an increase in insulin leads to a decrease in testosterone.
In addition, excessive sugar consumption causes plaque formation on the walls of blood vessels and leads to joint pain.
“Simple carbohydrates are poison for the brain. When it gets used to constantly eating sugar in excess, it becomes lazy because it uses the only source of energy,” the neurologist said.
The expert advises eating any dessert with protein sources such as yogurt, milk or almonds, or hazelnuts.
“This way, you will avoid a sudden spike in blood sugar and then the production of insulin in large quantities,” she said.
