Are Artificial Sweeteners Helpful In Losing Weight?

Nonnutritive sweeteners such as those used in diet pop were associated with weight gain, a higher risk of Type 2 diabetes and other health problems, according to researchers from the University of Manitoba's George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation.

However, it's possible this evidence review is blaming artificial sweeteners for health problems attributable to an otherwise poor diet or other unhealthy lifestyle choices, countered the Calorie Control Council.

"Evidence that sugar consumption is fueling this epidemic has stimulated the increasing popularity of nonnutritive sweeteners, including aspartame, sucralose and stevioside". And in general, more Americans are ingesting artificial sweeteners than ever- one study, for example, suggested that American children's consumption of artificial sweeteners went up by 200% from 1999 to 2012.

The conclusions of a new systematic review by Azad et al. that low calorie sweeteners might be linked to risk of weight gain and heart disease on the basis of findings from observational cohort studies are not supported by the collective evidence from well-designed human intervention studies and previous thorough systematic reviews and meta-analysis.

The term "artificial sweeteners" encompasses a shortlist of chemicals sold under commercial names.

As for insulin? Yes, studies have shown increased insulin release from consuming sweetners (bad news for avoiding diabetes, ) but again, only in studies conducted on rats.

The report analyzed 37 studies that followed the use of artificial sweeteners.

"People consume artificial sweeteners and diet beverages and think they can eat cake". While more research needs to be done, from what we know now, "there is no clear benefit for weight loss, and there's a potential association with increased weight gain, diabetes and other negative cardiovascular outcomes", says Azad.

Both types of studies have their pluses and limitations.

However, the use of sweetener did not prevent this result, and did not limit the ability to lose weight.

When we also consider that a 2006 study by the National Cancer Institute of over half a million older adults concluded that there was no increased risk of cancer between those who drank diet drinks and those who did not, the evidence against the safety of artificial sweetners doesn't really stack up. The metabolism and fauna, and gut may also be affected by these sweet products that do not contain calories.

The other school holds that artificial sweeteners might influence the body itself in some as-yet-unknown way, Azad said. She offered this advice: "I'm going to say that you should drink water".

"It's many factors together that make up a healthy diet and lifestyle".

In the meantime, Azad thinks the lack of proven benefit and questions about harm should give pause to people who choose sweeteners because they think they're healthful substitutes for sugar.

"The caution that the long-term effects of sweeteners are well understood", she stated through a press.
