Is Aspartame Sweetener in Your Food? Here’s How to Avoid It

dreamstime.com
Aspartame is an artificial super sweetener that some food manufacturers use to cut cost on sugar. Just a little of it makes food so sweet because it is said to be 200 times sweeter than sugar.

Problem is, the little you get becomes super dangerous when accumulated in your body. Aspartame is made of two amino acids which are building blocks of protein. That’s supposed to be healthy, right? But they are held or bonded together using methyl ester bond—or methanol.

Aspartame releases methanol (or wood alcohol) in your bloodstream. Then it gets converted into formaldehyde which experts say is an embalming fluid, or something equivalent to that. Imagine embalming fluid running in your bloodstream and reaching vital organs, especially the brain and the nerves.

I wonder--is this why Parkinson's or Alzheimer's is rampant today and experts can't explain why?

Now, watch this video on aspartame..


You see, aspartame is mostly in your so-called "sugar-free" food and beverages, making you think they are healthier and diabetic-friendly. You may not get sugar from them but they'd give you other health problems--probably even more serious than diabetes. 

So stay away from artificial juice drinks, powdered juice drinks, "sugar-free" softdrinks and sodas, and the like. Better yet, always look at the labels of food and beverage products you buy. I have developed that habit. I've become a food label detective.

Much better, consume less (or zero) artificial food and beverage products. I prefer making my own natural juice drinks with zero sugar. Sometimes I use honey or brown sugar. And definitely no softdrinks. That's definitely cheaper for you--for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. Save the money and invest it later--you get healthier and rich!

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
