Three Reasons to Reduce Sugar Intake

Sugar seems to have become a staple of the diets of many people, young and old. Added refined sugar often pops up in some of the most unusual places, making it nearly impossible to avoid without serious dedication. And for many, feeling as if they have to forego some of their favorite treats makes reducing sugar intake a serious struggle. Thankfully, there are great no sugar added products on the market like Koochikoo No Sugar Added Lollipops that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of reducing your sugar intake without giving up the sweetness you crave.

Why Reduce Sugar Intake?

Sugar promotes tooth decay. Everyone’s mouth has naturally occurring bacteria and that bacteria grows and flourishes on sugar. It can build up on your teeth and create acid that causes the erosion over enamel, contributing to tooth decay and other dental hygiene issues. Reducing sugar will naturally reduce these issues.

Reducing sugar intake can aid in weight loss. Sugary foods and drinks are typically very high in calories, which contributes to weight gain. It can encourage the storage of fat within your body, plus the empty calories from sugary foods will leave you feeling hungry even faster than you expect. Cutting back on sugar will only serve to help you along the way to a healthier weight.

White sugar and other refined sugars can cause inflammation in the stomach and digestive system. Our bodies do not digest sugar effectively and it often will ferment in the digestive system, causing inflammation and other digestive issues. Simply put, sugar might taste good, but it is not something our bodies are prepared to process properly. Many with digestive problems find that reducing sugar keeps them at bay. 

How Does Koochikoo Help?

Koochikoo Organic No Sugar Added Lollipops are made without any added refined sugar, making them a perfect addition to your diet when reducing sugar. They are sweetened with tapioca fiber, which is a natural sweetener made from the Casaba plant. The flavor of tapioca fiber is similar to that of a soft honey and it delivers about 60% of the sweetness of sugar without the damage to your teeth that sugar can cause.

At only 10 calories per pop, you won’t be adding excess calories to your diet with Koochikoo Lollipops! Whether or not you’re watching your weight, these yummy pops come in four delicious flavors that will help you fight the cravings for sugar. Choose your favorite from  Blueberry Lemon, Pineapple Orange, Pomegranate Blueberry, or Kiwi Apple! 

Rather than causing the inflammation that sugar does in the digestive system, the 5 grams of prebiotic fiber in each Koochikoo Organic Lollipop actually helps the digestive system! These prebiotic fiber helps to grow the essential “good” bacteria in the gut, which is a wonderful added benefit of these yummy treats. 

Ready to reduce your sugar intake, while cutting the cravings for a sweet treat? You can find Koochikoo No Sugar Added Organic Lollipops at Marshalls, Homegoods, and TJ Maxx. Or you can purchase them online through the Koochikoo Amazon Store. Enter the code lollipower at checkout to get 10% off your purchase of Koochikoo Lollipops!

    Reducing fake sugar is so hugely important – and by fake i mean not encapsulated inside a fruit or veg, etc.

    I want to reduce my sugar habit because in a day I consume too much sugary items. I know sugar is not good for our health so if this aforementioned Koochikoo Lollipops are available in my country, I will sure purchase it.
