Aspartame contains the amino acid phenylalanine. Research shows that this acid can build up in the blood preventing other chemicals from reaching the brain.

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on a new study that outlines how the controversy surrounding sugar and aspartame continues to contribute to health epidemics.
As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/diabetes-2/the-sugar-epidemic-how-it-is-killing-more-than-your-diets/) the FDA has said, and the recent PubMed report also outlines, how people who crave sugar often have sweet treats in place of fruits and vegetables depleting their bodies of proper nutrition. Although it is not the only cause, sugar is also a big contributor to diabetes. Diabetes can lead to a long list of health complications including blindness, heart disease, digestive problems and kidney problems. The dangers of sugar don’t end there.
When the sugar warnings went out many years ago, the food industry responded with artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame. Aspartame is a sweetening agent in literally thousands of sugar-free products including soft drinks, chewing gum, baked goods, candy, fruit juice, and even ice cream.
As the Bel Marra Health article and the PubMed Study both report, artificial sweeteners seemed like a savior to consumers when they first hit the market. This was the answer to the dangers of sugar. These new sweeteners after all came with zero calories. In the years since they were first introduced though, there has been a lot of research conducted on what is in the substitute and how it impacts our bodies.
The FDA has established an acceptable daily intake for each type of artificial sweetener. Despite assurances from the FDA, the Environmental Protection Agency placed aspartame on its list of potentially dangerous chemicals in 2011.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “Aspartame contains the amino acid phenylalanine. Research shows that this acid can build up in the blood preventing other chemicals from reaching the brain. As well, claims have been made that aspartame is related to headaches, dizziness, digestive problems, seizures, and mood changes. As a precaution, health practitioners suggest consumers follow the FDA daily intake limit.”
