Why is "Maltodextrin" in our "Supplements"


Okay people . . . so look "closely" at this label . . .


Everything you see on this ingredient list looks "GOOD"


And "YES" . . . even "ORGANIC" . . .


BUT . . . now look at the "OTHER INGREDIENTS" at the bottom . . . in "small" print.


It says . . . plant based MALTODEXTRIN!!!!!


GMO plant based . . . .


And now . . . after taking this "good" vitamin . . . the body has a "blood sugar SPIKE" from the "maltodextrin" . . . Putting our health on yet another "roller coaster ride".


And even though that "spike" will give you a quick little energy boost due to its "sugar" rush . . .


If you have diabetes or celiac disease . . . this little "rush" to the body can cause health issues.


So why do they put "maltodextrin" in the supplements we take???


Well . . . it functions as a tablet and capsule diluent . . . tablet binder . . . coating agent . . . and a thickener or sticky agent.


And it can lead to extreme ups and downs of "glucose" and our "hormones" . . . which can lead to "CRAVINGS for SWEETS".


Now . . . as I said the other day . . . "maltodextrin" is an additive used as a preservative, thickener and bulking agent . . . and even though the FDA generally recognizes "maltodextrin" from GMO corn, potatoes, rice, wheat and tapioca starch . . . as safe . . . it raises blood sugar levels and is linked to "INTESTINAL INFLAMMATION" . . .


EVEN WHEN IT'S USED IN OUR SUPPLEMENTS!!!!!


So buyer beware . . . and READ YOUR LABELS PEOPLE . . . the "bad" stuff is in the "OTHER INGREDIENTS"


And next week . . . let's talk about that "caramel" we all love in this Western diet.


Stay safe and please be "mindful"
