Sugar Robs Your Body of Essential Nutrients

Sugar Robs Your Body of Essential Nutrients


Sugar is known with several names; lactose, maltose, galactose, fructose, dextrose, sucrose, glucose, corn sugar, corn syrup and much more. Refined sugar is one of the most consumed and addictive food items by humans in the daily diet.

Sugar is known as a white poison. Ever wondered, Why? A poison is something, that if ingested gives birth to many diseases inside the body. That’s why sugar is said to be a poison because it doesn’t have any nutrients, vitamins or minerals. Sugar is only refined form of calories.

Foods naturally contain micro nutrients so whenever ingested gets digested easily. The body needs to use vitamins and minerals, in order for the body to consume calories. But sugar does not have any of them, the body has stored these vitamins and minerals in vital organs inside the body structure.

Sugar is a carbohydrate, if we do not digest it completely it transforms into toxic acids that the nervous system, brain, and the red blood cells accumulate. These readily formed toxic acids then disrupt the oxygenation of the cells. This is how a disease is caused.

According to Dr. Keith Nemec the Chiropractor,

In one study, three groups of mice were injected with an aggressive malignant mammary tumor. Prior to injection, the dietary induced blood sugar was altered to three different levels; high blood sugar, normal blood sugar, and lower blood sugar. After 70 days 66% of the high blood sugar group had died, 33% of the normal blood sugar had died and only 5% of the lowered blood sugar group had died. This demonstrates that the less sugar in our system the more cancer and pathogen protective we become.

He says,

“Remember this: Greater Toxic Load + Weakened Immune System (WBCs) = Disease (especially cancer).”

High sugar intake will rob your body of required essential nutrients. Following are the common disorders reported.

Insulin Resistance

Sugar plays a negative role in insulin resistance.  When we eat processed and refined foods like baked goods that are loaded with sugar, our body starts to produce insulin that transfers glucose out of blood and into the cells. In this way, our cells become insulin resistant and stop being productive.

Cardiovascular Disorder

Too much sugar greatly impacts the heart health leading to damaging heart diseases. High intake of sugar-rich foods and saturated fats produce another form of fat called Triglycerides. A high number of Triglycerides triggers heart diseases.

Increased Uric Acid

High uric acid levels can pose some serious risks for heart and kidneys. This occurs by loading up the body with fructose.  Fructose is found in table sugar, fruit juices, and corn syrup. Fructose gets converted into uric acid in the end. Increased levels of fructose cause fructose toxicity.


Products called AGEs (Advanced glycation end) products cause dull and wrinkled skin.  AGEs are formed through a process called glycation, in which proteins and fats are exposed to the sugar inside your bloodstream. This damages both the collagen and elastin, accelerating the aging process of your skin and causing it to lose its firmness and elasticity. The more sugar in your diet, the more AGEs you’re accumulating — and the faster your skin is aging.


We all know too much sugar intake leads to diabetes. Diabetes is one of the most eminent and risky side effects of high sugar intake. High sugar intake causes insulin resistance, which raises blood sugar levels putting you at a risk of diabetes. It is recommended to moderate the sugar intake to minimize the risk of diabetes. Diabetes can take a toll on many organs leading to other diseases as well.
