Giving Up Sugar Offers Almost Immediate Health Benefits

sugarDid you know that giving up sugar offers almost immediate benefits for your health?

In a recent study involving children, cutting down sugar resulted in significant health improvements in just 9 days.

According to a professor of clinical pediatrics at the University of California, sugar is toxic and being an expert on childhood obesity, he set out to research the impact of reducing sugar on 43 obese children between the ages of 9 and 18.

Among them, there were children suffering from at least one chronic disorder such as high blood pressure.

Results showed a drop in cholesterol and blood pressure levels, better blood glucose levels and ­improved liver function over a period of 9 days, surprising given the short timeframe.
