Artificial colors and sweeteners are essentially science experiments that you’re putting into your body. They have no nutritional value, and can irritate your body, especially if you’re sensitive or have allergies.
These artificial products often create inflammation and histamine reactions, and what’s worse, your body tends to store these chemicals in your tissues. It wasn’t made in nature, so your body has no chance of recognizing it. Just what you need, aspartame hanging out longer than you wanted it to!
