What Does Sugar Cost You?

In my last post, Sugar: The Nutrient Depleter, I discussed how many vitamins and minerals are depleted during the digestion of sugar.  These nutrients are pulled from healthy tissues and organs throughout your body in order to digest sugar through the Kreb’s Cycle.  Over time, the body’s nutrient storage will become depleted which makes sugar a very costly food.  From Ross Pelton’s book, The Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion Handbook, here are some of the symptoms to watch out for when these vitamins and minerals become depleted within your body:

B1 (Thiamin) Depression, memory loss, weight loss, fatigue, numbness, muscle weakness, edema, mental confusion, indigestion, heart palpitations, neuritis and irritability
B2 (Riboflavin) Dermatitis, fatigue, swollen tongue, vision loss, itching and tearing of the eyes
B3 (Niacin) Skin lesions, anxiety, insomnia, depression, aggression, swelling, diarrhea, weakness,”brain fog,” balding
B5 (Pantothenic Acid) Fatigue, numbness, grey hair
B6 (Pyridoxine) Depression, fatigue, dermatitis, anemia, glucose, intolerance, sleep disturbances, neuritis, elevated homocysteine, nausea
B7 (biotin) Hair loss, loss of hair color, depression, dermatitis, anorexia, nausea, numbness and tingling, muscle pain,
cardiac irregularities
