- Diet Drinks May Negatively Affect Hormones
Balanced hormones are one of the most important aspects of a healthy body and mind. Hormones imbalances are dangerous and often lead to further ailments and disease. Diet drinks and the ingredients that make them up can affect hormones in unhealthy ways.
Our bodies aren’t able to understand or process the fake chemical sugar in diet drinks. Drinking diet drinks regularly conditions the body to not process these sugars. When real sugar is consumed, the body is still confused and doesn’t send the correct hormones to process the sugar. This leads to issues with insulin and blood sugar. While research is still being done, you can see one study on this subject here.
