How Less Sugar Leads You to a Sweeter Life

      You hear it whenever someone sits back to take stock of how they’re managing their health, or maybe you’ve seen a hundred social media posts on New Year’s Day: Time to cut out the sugar! Maybe that’s you right now as you’re reading this. A common motivator for this resolution is weight loss but reducing your sugar intake by replacing some of your old candy store standbys with low sugar candy like CandyCan can have a wide range of positive effects.

      Let’s start by talking about your health. Too much sugar in your diet can lead to high levels of triglycerides, a type of fat that moves through our vascular system. This can increase your risk of a heart attack, stroke, or other cardiovascular diseases! But even baby steps can make a huge difference. A 20% reduction in sugar intake can significantly lower triglyceride levels. Try swapping out some of those high-sugar junk foods for a low sugar gummy candy like CandyCan and you’ll have taken the first step to protecting your heart health. Another effect of high sugar intake is lower levels of HDL, the “good” cholesterol. Reducing sugar intake raises your HDL levels, and HDL in turn reduces your levels of “bad” cholesterol – another win for your heart health. That’s two huge benefits of cutting your sugar intake!

"If you find yourself reaching for a sugary snack in the afternoon to give you a boost, that’s just a short-term sugar rush and when the crash comes, you’ll likely feel even more lethargic than you did before."

      We all want to safeguard our health, but just as many of us are also concerned with maintaining our appearance. After all, if weight loss is a motivator for a lot of people looking to switch to healthy candy to substitute, they might be looking for a boost in confidence. There are two other benefits to reduced sugar intake they should keep in mind, one you already probably know, and one you might not:

  • Better teeth! This is the one your dentist has been telling you since you were a kid. If you want a healthy smile, cut back on the sweets and the soft drinks. And nothing says confidence like a healthy, bright smile.
  • Better skin! High blood sugar levels cause glycation, which hinders your skin’s ability to repair its collagen. Collagen is what helps keep your skin maintain its elasticity and reduces wrinkles. Research has shown that high-sugar diets can lead to premature aging of the skin.

      How about how you feel? Ready to get off the daily energy roller coaster? If you find yourself reaching for a sugary snack in the afternoon to give you a boost, that’s just a short-term sugar rush and when the crash comes, you’ll likely feel even more lethargic than you did before. High-protein foods like almonds can help give you a steady supply of energy. Remember also that there is a difference between the sugar in whole foods like apples (which is offset by other nutrients that help your body manage the sugar in a healthy way), and the added sugars in many processed foods.

      If you’re really craving something sweet, healthy gummies like CandyCan use natural sweeteners that won’t make your blood sugar spike. You don’t have to completely deprive yourself to start making healthier choices. The benefits discussed above are only some of the positive effects of reducing sugar intake, and those are already pretty big! It’s also easier to do than you think. You’ve got this.
