NEVER use Splenda (health warning!)

Hey there, It’s your muscle building coach Lee Hayward here and I have to ask…

Do you use Splenda?

If so you may want to reconsider it after reading this…

I have to admit that I used to use Splenda and other artificial sweeteners thinking that they were a “healthy” alternative to sugar…
But NOT Anymore!

Splenda®, also known as sucralose, is an artificial, chemical sweetener.

Despite advertisements stating “Made from Sugar, so it Tastes like Sugar”
Which attempt to confuse consumers, Splenda® is NOT natural and contains no elements of natural sugar.

You may also be surprised to learn that Splenda® contains chrlorine. Yes, the same chlorine that goes in swimming pools.

And here’s the worst side effect:

Just like chlorine kills off micro-organisms in swimming pools, Splenda® and sucralose kill off healthy bacteria that lives in your gut — healthy bacteria that is VITALLY important to virtually every aspect of your health.

Recently, a study at the University of Duke confirmed this very finding. Not only is sucralose a heavily-processed, chemical artificial sweetener, but it’s also damaging to your gut health, which goes on to affect every other aspect of your health.

Here’s a direct quote from that study:

“Splenda® suppresses beneficial bacteria and directly affects the expression of the transporter P-gp and cytochrome P-450 isozymes that are known to interfere with the bioavailability of nutrients. Furthermore, these effects occur at Splenda® doses that contain sucralose levels that are approved by the FDA for use in the food supply.”


Did you know that over 80% of your immune system finds it’s home in your gut? In fact, there are more than 100 TRILLION living bacteria in your gut that control many aspects of your health, and due to things like the ingestion of artificial sweeteners like Splenda®, most folks have created a massive bacterial imbalance in their body.

But, it doesn’t just stop with the use of Splenda® or other artificial sweeteners. There are MANY other factors that are contributing to the bacterial imbalances that BILLIONS of folks are silently suffering from all around the world.

That’s why Registered Dietician, Brett Hall, has put together this simple “Is Your Belly TOXIC?” quiz to help you determine if YOUR gut is suffering from DANGEROUS levels of toxicity that are silently destroying your insides, your health, and your fatloss efforts to boot.

Further, when you take the quiz, Brett’s also going to GIVE YOU a free copy of his brand new gut-cleansing eBook, The Top 10 Gut-Cleansing Foods, 100% FREE.

  • Yeah Splenda or any other “unnatural Sweeteners” they are all bad news. Most people have no idea what they are putting into there bodies. Most are simply set on getting food that is quick and tasty but if they could only somehow see what this food was going to do to there organs and life later on down the road they would be terrified. I am glad you posted this study and I hope that people take it serious cause this stuff can change lives in the worst way.
