Aspartame is a man-made substance that is 200 times sweeter than sugar. Unlike sugar, however, aspartame has almost no calories. This, of course, is why it is used by food producers and individuals as an alternative to sugar and other calorie sweeteners. Aspartame was once the most popular synthetic sweetener in the world, but this distinction has now been captured by Sucrose (Splenda). Still, more than 1,000 asp products are made from aspartame, including beverages, food, gum, candy and medicines.
Aspartame was discovered by accident in 1965 and was first introduced into our food supply in 1981. It is often mixed with self-amem potassium to make it more stable and to extend its shelf-life with sugar and / or maltodextrin. Espertop is both nutritious and similar for individuals for table-top desserts.
From the first day to the present time, the obscure name has been the subject of intense scrutiny and health controversy. This is because the name is being changed from aspartame to aminosweet. The new name was not randomly drawn from the hat. For one thing, aspartame is synthesized from two amino acids: L-phenylalanine and L-aspartate. And for another, the word “amino acid” seems natural, healthy, safe and important.
The lumpy history of aspartame began during the FDA approval process when the product was first released to the public. It is alleged that Donald Rumsfeld was the CEO of Rumsfeld Searle at the time, who owned and manufactured the company Espert ame The newly elected US president was. Since then, there have been repeated allegations of guilty science, disregard for impartial research and reliance on biased studies funded by manufacturers and / or related organizations.
In response to these criticisms, the FDA insists that the FDA is the most studied substance in FDA history. There have been a total of 26 reviews together, the last one was in 2015. They all draw the same conclusion: Aspartame is safe for human consumption. The World Health Organization (WHO) says aspartame is safe. The FAO United Nations says aspartame is safe. The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) claims that it is safe.
That said, empirical claims by individuals about neurological problems continue, and they continue at full power. The most common and common complaints are headaches and sleep disorders. Very serious complaints include seizures, brain tumors and multiple sclerosis. Some physicians suggest that aspartame and other exit toxins may also contribute to psoriasis and hyperactive behavior, and to degenerative brain diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
As mentioned above, aspartame is an excitotoxin, and this is what makes it different and potentially more dangerous than synthetic sweeteners or reduced calorie sweeteners. The name exitotoxin was coined by scientists who observed that certain groups of chemicals have the ability to overmulate (stimulate) brain cells, which kill cells and then either damage or kill cells.
More than 70 types of excitotoxins have been discovered. In addition to aspartate (acetotoxin in aspartame), the other most prevalent excitotoxin is glutamate. Glutamate is a key ingredient in MSG (monosodium glutamate), hydrolyzed vegetable proteins, plant proteins, auto-to-lized proteins, and commonly named catches બધા all substances such as “natural flavors” or “spices.”
Independent researchers criticize current aspartame studies because they are conducted over a period of two years or less. This produces a false negative result because the study is too short to reveal the problem of slow, accumulated brain damage. It can take many years before the tipping point reaches where the clinical signs become clearer. For example, “… the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease do not manifest until 80 to 90% of the neurons in the nucleus involved have died … the neurons did not all die suddenly at the same time, instead they slowly and for many years The same is true for Alzheimer’s disease. ” [From Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills by Russell L Blaylock, MD, page 92].
There is a need for a deeper, more time-consuming study and a more advanced understanding of how the exitotoxin violates brain barriers and placenta barriers. It is best to avoid products made from aspartame / aminosvit unless this happens, and it may take years. Among the population groups most susceptible to brain cell damage from oxytocin are young children, unborn children who receive the oxytocin from their mothers, the elderly, and people with a family history of neurological disorders.
Why take a risk? Luckily for the consumer, there are many other synthetic sweeteners or low calorie sweetening options available, and they are all less offensive than aspartame. Consumption of any artificial sweetener or low calorie sweetener should ideally be limited to 1 teaspoon (3 teaspoons) a day.
Although Aspartame has a brand new aminosweet name, it is still the same old exitotoxin. Don’t be fooled! Always check the ingredient list of any packaged food or drink to see if it is listed.
