A Sweet Treat Never Hurt Anybody
They say that a sweet treat never hurt anybody. In most cases that is true, especially when it comes to generally healthy individuals. However, if you’re craving sweets there might be more to it.
A Little Bit is Good for the Belly
It’s absolutely true that a little sweet treat can help with digestion. Chocolate is acidic, but something cool happens when eating a bit of chocolate after eating. It can churn those stomach acids in your favor and help with digestion. So, if you crave something sweet after eating, you might need natural help digesting your meal.
Sweetness for Your Soul
Sugar gets a pretty bad wrap, but sugar is good for your body’s insulin production, which helps the body store energy. Too much sugar can result in a sudden drop in blood sugar. However, a little sugary snack can have benefits in quick energy boosts.
Just be careful because the higher the sugar rise, the harder the fall.
When to Absolutely Avoid the Sweets
Obviously, avoid sugary things if you have a medical condition where sugar can hurt you. Diabetic comas are real and life-threatening, so be certain to follow your doctor’s orders when it comes to diabetes.
No Sugar When Your Body is Off Balance
Another time to avoid sugar is if you have a yeast infection. Eating sweets can hurt more than you think when your body’s balance is in turmoil. Yeast can affect women and men, internally and externally. It can also be transmitted back and forth through bodily functions. Hence the reason not to share undergarments. It’s best to avoid engaging in any sexual activity until the infection has passed.
Women will have more symptoms than men, so it’s best to know the signs.
Yeast feeds off sugar, and just like out of a scary story, if you feed them, they will grow. Yeast can affect everything in your body if it crosses the line and enters your bloodstream.
So, if you have a yeast infection, be sure not to give into that craving of sugar. By the way, that also includes fruits. Fruits have a high natural sugar content that can feed the yeast.
If you think you have a yeast infection, seek medical treatment and drink plenty of water, and save the desert for another time.
