Aspartame Withdrawal

Suffering Through An Aspartame Withdrawal

Aspartame withdrawal is very real, just as any other addictive product.  Despite the millions of people that have to struggle to clean their body from this harmful substance, the FDA still allows it to be used in an abundance of food and drinks.  The phenylalanine that is found in aspartame significantly lowers your threshold for seizures and it depletes serotonin from your body.  With less serotonin, manic depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, mood swings and rage are all triggered and you can't control any of these feelings.  Aspartame is an extremely dangerous product.  It can cause you to have an irregular heartbeat and it can interfere with cardiac medication.



Products With Aspartame

Sugar-free gum is the worst thing that you can indulge in that contains aspartame because the small molecules enter your mouth's mucous membranes and travel directly into your bloodstream and straight to your brain.  You might as well just give yourself an IV of it.

Other products that you could end up with aspartame withdrawal from are soft drinks, certain prescription drugs and over the counter medications, vitamin and herb supplements, instant breakfasts, yogurt, breath mints, candy, cereal, coffee beverages, cocoa mixes, frozen desserts, gelatin desserts, laxatives, juice beverages, shake mixes, mild drinks, tea beverages, table top sweeteners, wine coolers, topping mixes and the list goes on.  It is important to note that many manufacturers get away with not listing aspartame on their ingredients by adding the words “contains phenylalanine' which not everyone even understands.
