The Harmful Side Effects of Artificial Sweeteners (Aspartame)Feb 25th, 2011 |
Have you ever suffered from a nagging symptom like blurry vision, eye pain, frequent headaches, or extreme sensitivity to noise? Do you get occasional dizziness and have no idea why?
What is Aspartame?
Aspartame is the scientific name for the artificial sweetener contained in NutraSweet, and Equal.
It is made of three chemicals, aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. The book “Prescription for Nutritional Healing,” by James and Phyllis Balch, lists aspartame under the category of “chemical poison.”
Let’s take a look at the three chemicals that make up this artificial sweetener
Aspartic Acid (Makes up 40% of Aspartame)
In the book Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., over 500 scientific references are used to detail how excessive aspartic acid ingestion from aspartame can lead to neurological disorders and hundreds of other acute symptoms.
Aspartic acid raises the level of aspartate and glutamate in your blood. These chemicals acs as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating transmission of information between neurons. Through a complex process, this can lead to excess free radicals in the brain, killing the cells.
As the asparate and glutamate in slowly destroy neurons, people generally don’t display chronic illness until 75% or more of the neural cells in a particular area of the brain are already dead.

- Headaches / Migraines
