How to Stop Sugar Cravings with Nutritional Supplements

Do you have a strong sweet tooth? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and crave chocolate, candy, cookies, or ice cream? Are sugary foods part of your daily diet? 

This is a familiar story to many people, no matter how healthy and fit they are. Sugar cravings can indicate an underlying problem with your physical and mental health. Here’s what you should know about sugar cravings and how to beat them. 

Why We Want to Eat Sweets

Why do so many people find cookies and cakes irresistible? Instead of reaching for fruits and veggies, many people choose sugary desserts and candies to get them through the day. Don’t feel ashamed of your frequent sugar cravings. There’s plenty of science behind why we do this. 

Sugar releases a hit of dopamine — a neurotransmitter involved in reward-seeking and pleasure — in your brain. When you eat something sugary, your brain registers it as pleasure overload. You start to seek out more sugary foods to get the same release of feel-good brain chemicals.

During human evolution, we sought out high-calorie foods to fuel our bodies in times of starvation. We had to keep up enough energy for hunting, fighting predators, and reproducing. Sugary foods tend to be higher in calories, so we developed a biological preference for the sweet stuff. 

If we are so hardwired to eat sugar, why shouldn’t we? What are the downsides to consuming excessive amounts of sugar? Here’s what we know about sugar’s impact on your overall health. 

The Problem with Sugar

Unfortunately, processed sugars can be harmful to your health. There are numerous cons to consuming high amounts of sugar and very few benefits. While it may feel good in the moment to eat a sugary snack, you can damage your health quickly this way. We will explore the health consequences of eating too much sugar. 

Weight Gain

High-calorie sweet foods can lead to weight gain more quickly than whole, plant-based foods. When you eat a cookie or a piece of chocolate, you can consume several hundred calories at once. 

These foods don’t have much volume, so you will not feel satisfied after you eat just one cookie or piece of candy. This leads to eating more sugar, and therefore, more calories. Excess calories add inches to your waist and can ultimately shorten your lifespan. 

Cavities

Your dental health can suffer if you eat too much sugar. Sugar is not good for your teeth and can lead to cavities and tooth decay. 

When you get a cavity, the inside of your tooth begins to rot and become infected. A dentist has to drill a hole into your tooth and fill it with an artificial tooth-like substance to fix it. Cavities become expensive and uncomfortable very quickly. 

Poor Mental Health

Studies have shown that eating too much sugar can lead to brain fog, sadness, and anxiety throughout the day. Your mental health may start to decline when you don’t fuel your body with nutritious foods. 

Most foods that are high in sugar are full of empty calories and don’t have essential vitamins and minerals. High sugar consumption is linked with poor mood and lower cognitive function. 

Beat Your Sugar Cravings with PureBalance™ Serotonin

Now you know the problems sugar can cause for your physical and mental health. You want to stop eating it, but how do you crush those intense cravings for sweets? 

PureBalance™ Serotonin is our premium serotonin supplement that can help curb cravings for sugar.* This supplement improves your mood and boosts feelings of happiness, which leads to fewer sugar cravings.* Here’s how it works. 

Stress and Sugar

When you feel overwhelmed, agitated, or stressed, you are more likely to reach for unhealthy sweet snacks. Sugar makes us feel good, so naturally, we want to eat it when we experience stress. PureBalance™ Serotonin promotes a positive mood and feelings of happiness so you can relax and de-stress naturally.* 

Serotonin is known as the “happiness neurotransmitter” in your brain. When you don’t have enough serotonin, you can feel sad, stressed, and on edge throughout the day. PureBalance™ Serotonin boosts your serotonin levels to fight feelings of nervousness and stress.* When you feel better, you are less likely to consume lots of sugar.

How It Works

PureBalance™ Serotonin contains 5-HTP, the chemical building block for serotonin molecules.* Your brain needs the raw 5-HTP provided by this supplement to boost serotonin levels. With more serotonin circulating in your brain, you can feel happier, less stressed, and more relaxed.* 

Stress-Reducing Ingredients

We also added relaxing ingredients to PureBalance™ Serotonin, including Rhodiola rosea. Rhodiola rosea is a natural herb found in cold parts of the world. This adaptogen helps your body respond to stress in healthy ways so you can fight feelings of frustration and relax easily.* 

PureBalance™ Serotonin contains vitamin D3, an important vitamin for immune system function and happiness. Vitamin D3 deficiency can make you feel sadder and less positive overall. This supplement boosts your vitamin D3 levels when you cannot get enough sunlight to synthesize it yourself.*

Tree bark extract might be a surprising ingredient, but it is effective.* We’ve included Relora®, a proprietary blend of bark extract, to curb cravings and stress eating.* 

Relora® lowers your levels of cortisol, the hormone that’s released when your body is in distress.* Cortisol can make you crave unhealthy foods and gain weight. This ingredient will help you fight your sugar cravings and protect your health.*

L-theanine is a fast-acting stress reducer that promotes relaxing brain waves.* We added L-theanine to boost the relaxation effects of PureBalance™ Serotonin.* L-theanine is a natural compound found in green tea and black tea. This natural ingredient will help you relax quickly and stay stress-free.*
