We here at ActiDiet decided not to use Aspartame in our range of products for a number of reasons but having recently read a report wanted to make more people aware of the potential hidden dangers of this sweetener
Aspartame is used in over 6,000 products worldwide, and is consumed habitually by millions of people every day.
There are over 92 health side effects associated with aspartame consumption. Because aspartame can dissolve into solution it can travel throughout the body and deposit in any tissue.
The are a very large and growing number of persons who are experiencing chronic health problems similar to the side effects of chronic methanol poisoning when ingesting aspartame-containing products for a significant length of time.
Aspartame side effects make up more than 75% of all the food reactions reported. Some, like seizures and death, are serious. Symptoms include heart palpitations, insomnia, nausea, migraines, breathing trouble, vertigo, memory loss, depression, muscle spasms and vision problems amongst others.
