How the Sugar Industry Managed to Dupe the World for Decades 
  
Thousands of studies over many decades show excess sugar damages your health, yet the sugar industry successfully buried the evidence and misdirected the public with manipulated science. According to the sugar industry, sugar is a harmless source of energy and may even be an important part of a healthy “balanced” diet. 
  
“In order to continue sweetening the world’s food supply, thus securing continued profits, the sugar industry turned to the very same deceptions and tactics lifted from the tobacco industry. Using big sugar’s own internal documents on this strategy, ‘Sugar Coated’ reveals the well-oiled tricks of the trade to confuse the public about what is really driving the global pandemic of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.” Dr. Mercola   July 21, 2018

Literally thousands of studies over many decades show excess sugar damages your health, however the sugar industry has successfully buried the evidence and wrongly misdirected the public with manipulated science. 
  
Yikes! Seventy-four percent of packaged foods contain added sugars, which hide under 61 different names, many of which are unfamiliar. The truth is that in the past three decades, obesity has doubled and Type 2 diabetes has tripled. How did this happen? Evidence implicating sugar has steadily mounted. 
  
According to a 2014 study,10 percent of Americans consume 25 percent or more of their daily calories in the form of added sugars, and those who consume 21 percent or more of their daily calories in the form of sugar are twice as likely to die from heart disease compared to those who get 7 percent or less of their daily calories from added sugar.  
  
sugar diabetesThe risk was nearly tripled among those who consumed 25 percent or more of their calories from sugar. That means at least 10 percent of the adult population in the U.S. are in this tripled-risk category. 
Heart disease and Type 2 diabetes are not the only health problems because of a high-sugar diet. Excessive sugar consumption drives virtually all chronic diseases, including nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer and dementia. Research shows even mild elevation of blood sugar — a level of around 105 or 110 — is associated with an elevated risk for Alzheimer’s. 
  
HOW COME NOBODY TOLD YOU? 
  
boy looking at sugar and sodaRemember when the sugar industry blamed saturated fat as the villain? Well, that when processed food industry had to figure out how to remove the fat while maintaining taste. The solution was to add sugar. The ill-advised low-fat craze is a major reason why processed foods are loaded with so much added sugar. 
The results? Of the 60 studies, the 26 that found no link between sugary drinks and obesity or diabetes were all funded by the beverage industry; of the 34 that did find a relationship only one had received industry funding. In conclusion, they noted that: “This industry seems to be manipulating contemporary scientific processes to create controversy and advance their business interests at the expense of the public’s health.” 
  
Sugar causes very real damage to your body and cells, and the addiction to the substance is also very real. There are several things you can use to reduce or eliminate your intake of added sugars, while still enjoying your meals and feeling satisfied after eating.

LOTUS ROOT -An excellent source of dietary fiber, which slows the digestion of carbohydrates. Lotus root also contains many essential vitamins and minerals. 
  
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 
Q: How does VitaTaste work? 
A: Some of the molecules in the VitaTaste formulation are similar to that of glucose molecules. These molecules fill the receptors located on the external layers of the intestines, temporarily blocking the absorption of the sugar/ carbohydrate molecules. By blocking these receptors, VitaTaste stops the absorption of sugar and processed carbs, which can then be excreted by the body as waste before it can be stored as fat. 
  
Q: How does VitaTaste help keep me from gaining weight? 
A: In short, blocking sugar and processed carbs from being absorbed by the intestinal walls lessens the amount that gets stored as fat. For best results in maintaining a healthy weight, use VitaTaste in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise, and don’t go overboard with carb intake. 
  
RECOMMENDATION 
Take 2 capsules, 10 minutes before meals OR before eating sugar.
