What are some benefits to reducing sugar intake, and some natural supports for sugar overconsumption? This week, on A Different Perspective, Dr. Bryce Gallagher breaks down sugar’s health risks and its impact on five areas of the body. These include:

  • Effects of sugar on the liver
  • Kidney health and sugar
  • Sugar’s impact on the nervous system
  • Nutritional deficiencies associated with sugar – what’s the impact it has on your vitamins and minerals?
  • Sugar and weight

Sugar affects the whole body. What is the normal function of each of these five, and how does sugar impact it? Is there some day-to-day evidence that you may be eating too much sugar? What are some benefits to reducing sugar intake? Dr. Bryce lines them up, side-by-side, to make it clear why there is such a thing as too much sugar – and why it’s bad news for your body.

Dr. Bryce also covers a few ways to counteract too much sugar. The one surefire way to diminish the effects of too much sugar is to stop eating sugar. What are a few other ways of managing sugar in your diet? Dr. Bryce goes into:

  • Coleus
  • Ashwagandha
