Some Sweet New Facts About Sugar and Crohn's Disease That Will Surprise You!

Much of what you hear today about Sugar is that it is a public enemy number, as it relates to our health. The media in our country constantly likes to beat the drums about how bad sugar can be to us and our children, because it makes us fat, and unhealthy for us to eat as a whole. Some experts recommend that sugar be removed from our diet, suggesting that popular restaurants like McDonald's are mandated to replace their milk with apples and carrots. With that said, how much do we all know about sugar actually, and do these people just make a sweeping claim about it?

I find that there are many different types of sugar available to sugar lovers, sugar that is not harmful to Crohn's, Colitis and IBS sufferers. Not only are many sugars harmless, but they are certainly beneficial for us to consume, they contain valuable healing properties in them, essential to our good digestive health! Not only are these sugars harmless to our bodies, but they have healing properties in them too!

True, bad sugars, so-called "table sugar" that contains corn syrup, are bad for all of us, and should be avoided at all costs, especially if you are a Crohn's, Colitis, or IBS sufferer. This is especially true if you are taking steroids for your condition. If you take steroids and have a high sugar diet, you will have serious problems. Corn syrup is one of the most toxic foods in the digestive tract and is not tolerated by anyone suffering from indigestion. The most cheating part of sugar is that it does not cause pain or intestinal obstruction such as nuts or high fiber foods. As a result, many people do not connect sugar to their stomachs, and as a result, suffer from ignorance.

So, why is Sugar so bad for Crohn's disease and such? Sugar completely removes the gut of healthy bacteria and replaces it with bad bacteria, leading to a condition known as Candida. The use of sugar also leads to serious PH imbalance in the body which makes it harder for us to recover from a recent flare. The side effects of sugar in the intestine, are gas, bloating, diarrhea, and even mouth ulcers (even in those who do not have indigestion). To make matters worse, Sugar is obviously addictive (just ask for millions), and it's hard to break it. It can be difficult for kids and teens with Crohn's of sugar as they watch their friends eat all the time without the same side effects. In addition to avoiding table sugar, even artificial sugars, such as NutraSweet and sorbents should be avoided as they are proven to interfere with digestion of almost everyone, even those who do not have Crohn's. Alcohol acts like sugar too, when in the body and should be consumed only in moderation, if not at all, depending on the severity of your digestive state.

So, what are the good sugar alternatives for Crohn's disease and what are their positive effects on your body? This type of sugar is found naturally in fruits, and vegetables, even honey. Although honey can cause allergic reactions in some, and trigger attacks on people with ADD / ADHD, it's not dangerous for most people and is healthy to eat. Honey is actually easier to digest than normal sugars, can promote wound healing, kill bacteria, indigestion and even reduce allergy symptoms. The sugar found in wolfberry fruit contains complex sugars called polysaccharides or complex sugars, which are clinically shown to help support your pancreas, boost immunity, build and tone muscles, and actually help you lose weight! In addition, this fruit improves your metabolism, boosting the immune system, causing bettors and faster healing of Crohn's caused by your flare. Sugar polysaccharides provide actually proven to break tumors, and fight free radicals in the body. This is the toxins we take from polluted air, pesticides and carbon monoxide gases from petrol and diesel vehicles to several sites.

Another alternative healthy sugar that you can use in your Crohn's Disease Diet, which also has no adverse effect on traditional blood sugar, is Xylitol. Like the polysaccharides found in Wolfberry, Xylitol is also natural, derived from fatty vegetables and fruits, as well as corn starch and various wood-like sticks. In fact, Xylitol is actually produced naturally in our body ... up to 15 grams daily. It occurs daily as a natural metabolism of human and animal glucose as well as several plants and microorganisms. Meanwhile, Sugar Corn derived from sugar fades the digestive system, Xylitol actually helps cure and repair it. It does this by building up our immune system, allowing abusers to protect us from the chronic degenerative diseases we experience such as Crohn's, Colitis or IBS. Xylitol is considered a five-carbon sugar, which means it is antimicrobial, inhibiting bacterial growth. It actually makes the cell wall of our digestive system smooth, to viruses and germs, which allows them to slip and clean. Xylitol is also not known to be toxic. Xylitol is also credited with helping to slow down the aging process! But most importantly, the taste of Xylitol is incredible and looks like sugar and does not leave an unpleasant aftertaste! It is available in many forms. In the form of crystals, it can replace sugar in cooking, baking or as a sweetener for drinks. It is also included as an ingredient in chewing gum, mint and nasal spray. It was actually approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1963.

Another good sugar on the list is Acetylglucosamine. The most common name for this saccharine is glucosamine, which is found in supplements to reduce arthritis-related joint and muscle pain. Arthritis is a by-product of many suffering from Crohn's. Glucosamine actually improves cartilage and reduces swelling in the joints. This is just another sugar up against critics claiming that we should eliminate sugar from our diet.

So, while there are sugars (processed sugars) that we really should avoid from Crohn's sufferers, there are many sugars, natural sugars, some of which are not included in this article, that we would be foolish to not educate ourselves, especially with access great thing that we have on the internet nowadays. We were able to cook the cake and eat it too, having all the benefits of good sugar, which is good taste, but still not to blame for the food we suspect was bad for Crohn's disease.
