I use bother xylitol and stevia. when baking I combine them. xylitol is a little spendy.
I use stevia on yogurt. Stevia can have an after taste, thats why I combine them. On fresh strawberries I use xylitol like sugar,, it has never bothered my stomach
Please be advised
I advocate all health blogs linked to NMT.
Read them and explore MMS and CS.
It may be the best chance that you have to heal yourself
@ op: the least refined sugar you can find. brown sugar, turbinado, raw sugar. really, it's all sugar though... the best thing you can do is buy a length of sugar cane and boil it in some water, then reducing to appropriate consistancy. it can even be crystallized this way. this will make a consistancy that is similar to maple syrup, but it is sugar. this method is going to the most beneficial in terms of nutrients.
I use only Stevia - the Dal brand. Try a good health food store if you have one. No after taste of any kind.
I found one called Trivia at Kroger one time.
I do use a bit of brown sugar on sweet potatoes though.
May you always have..Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!
Basically i will go out and look for Xylitol and Stevia, if i find both i will buy the first one and try it, if i like the taste and everything i will stick with than, if not than i will get the second one, try that too, compare and than decide which one i will stick with...
ophiuchus i dont want to go through that ''procedure'' really, i asked here to see whats the healthiest alternative out there on the market, i got my 2 answers so now i will decide and pick one out of those 2 that i will like more...but thanks anyway good to know
Truestorytotell, since you may be concerned about Candida and other problems you have, you should avoid sugar, including honey. That's why I mentioned those substitutes. Otherwise molasses and maple syrup are really the best for their mineral content. Honey is best for its healthy enzymes. However, in your case for the present, avoid sugar. Do yourself the favor.
Yes its true but for 21 years up to 1 year ago i used to eat SO MUCH more sugar, chocolates, 3-4 spoons in every cup of coffee, i mean i used to live off it and i really mean that, im not exagerating really...
And now i just consume the bare minimal, but tell me please isnt sugar the food that our cells need? like fuel for a car...
Thats what im unclear about, the cells in our bodies need sugar, i mean fructose glucose insulin whatever just sweet...so if i deprive them of that completely, isnt that gonna have a bad effect on my whole body?
my reasoning is just to balance it, use whatever sweet in moderation, and so feed my cells with the food they need, but give it to them in healthy amounts and just healthy (like honey instead of white sugar, for example)
please straighten me out bcuz as you can see im a bit confused about this...
Ok here it is, as far as im concerned the sugar(fructose and glucose) found in honey and fruits is the healthy kind of sugar...
But even that can cause insulin spikes if taken in large amounts, so its not that sugar feeds lets say cancer or candida directly, its just the insulin spikes which cause the problem, so by me consuming only healthy sugar, and in moderation, i think its the right thing to do because it will keep the insulin in my body on normal levels...
p.s i dont have cancer, i have what i consider the beggining of cancer,mini-cancer, cancer's children (HPV, Herpes) so dealing with that is what started me on this whole healthy lifestyle road, but for now i just want to live as healthy as possible, and im talking radically...i dont use plastic anymore at all now thats an example of radicalism, when i say to people i dont use plastic they just stare at me with their mouth open hahaha
Fructose is not good sugar. There are posts on NMT supporting this.
You do not need to eat sugar to get glucose. Your body will get it from the foods you already eat, like protein and various fats. Probiotics will even make glucose from fiber. Glucose is the food for the cells. Honey has a lot of glucose, but other sugars too. You do not need to eat sugar of any type.
