Processed sugar creates oxidation within the body and increased oxidation ages you faster. Quitting processed sugar means decreasing oxidation and actually looking and feeling younger. Not only will you look younger but that excess weight you’ve been carrying around will fall off of you without all of that processed sugar dampening your metabolic potential.
- Improved immunity
Sugar dampens the immune system in a big way so when you cut it out for seven days, your gut (the site of 80% of our immune system) is given a chance to repair itself. By putting in nourishing foods, it gives your gut a chance to do its job and provide protective immunity against disease. Dr. Nancy Appleton has connected sugar to 144 different diseases and conditions so by giving up sugar you are automatically decreasing your chance of getting these diseases.
