M & # 39; there is no convincing evidence to support the health benefits of & # 39; sweeteners without sugar, And potential damages can not be excluded, according to an analysis of the study published in the magazine. The British Medical Journal.
growing concerns about the health and quality of life has prompted many people to adopt styles & # 39; & # 39 with more life, health and avoid foods with & # 39; high sugar, salt or fats. Therefore, foods and beverages containing sweeteners unsweetened common sweetener instead of sugar have become increasingly popular.
Although many unsweetened sugar sweeteners are approved for use, less is known about the benefits and their possible damage within acceptable daily intake, because the evidence is "a & # 39; often limited and conflicting", indicate those responsible for this study.
To better understand all this, team & # 39; European researchers, from countries such as Hungary, Germany and France, analyzed 56 studies comparing any borrowing or lower consumption & # 39; sweeteners without sugar & # 39; higher consumption in adults and children with & # 39; health. They mkejlu weight, the blood glucose control, oral health, cancer, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, mood and behavior. The studies were evaluated for bias and certainty of the evidence.
generally, The results show that, for most of the results, there appears to be differences statistically or clinically significant among people exposed to sweeteners sugar free and not exposed, or between different doses of & # 39; sweeteners without sugar.
For example, adults results from some small studies suggested small improvements in body mass index and blood glucose levels fasting sugar without sugar, but certainty of this evidence was low. The lower consumption & # 39; sugar-free sweeteners were associated with & # 39; increased slightly smaller weight (-0.09 kg) from higher consumption, but other again & # 39; certainty of this evidence was low.
In children, a smaller increase was observed in the score of body mass index with sugar without sweetness compared to sugar, but taking & # 39; sweeteners sugar unsweetened did not differ by body weight. In addition, not enough evidence gathered so far & # 39; & # 39 some effect; substances sweeten without sugar in adults with & # 39; overweight or obese or have children who try to lose weight by & # 39; actively.
