    Happy day after Halloween!

    I hope you had fun last night whether you were out trick-or-treating or home handing out candy. I spent my night out with my family and my 2 year old son going door to door collecting leaky gut promoting high fructose corn syrup ridden candy. That Halloween candy is worse for your health than you probably thought.

    Yes, I am quite the health nut but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want my son to enjoy on all the fun holidays or festivities. So last night I wanted to keep my little “organic free-range chicken” up to par with organic standards which isn’t easy on a night where all regards for health are tossed out the window.

    Of course my little chick wanted candy of his own just like all the other kids but I came prepared. To avoid all that high fructose corn syrup, I emptied some wrappers from some of the more popular candies and filled them with more health healthy candy alternatives like organic macaroons and dates which contain only all natural ingredients. When he wanted a piece of candy, I made sure he got one of my special treats. The best part was he never knew the difference.

    Whatever you did last night is in the past (including eating all that Halloween candy!). Do yourself, your kids, and your leaky gut a favor and toss out whatever Halloween candy you might have left and replace it with a healthier alternative like I mentioned above. Halloween or not, you should cut all processed candy out of your diet.

    6 Reasons Why You and Your Leaky Gut Should Stay Away From High Fructose Corn Syrup

    1. It travels straight to the liver where it is metabolized directly into fat. In fact it converts to fat more than any other sugar.

    2. A recent study found evidence that it contributes to the development of diabetes.

    3. It causes you to eat more, consume more calories, and gain weight because it does not stimulate production of the hormone leptin which works to regulate your appetite and signal to your brain that you are full.

    4. It is highly processed and contains no enzymes, vitamins, or minerals. Instead it strips your body of these much needed micro-nutrients.

    5. The fructose in high fructose corn syrup is not the same as fructose in fruit. It is chemically altered and the body doesn’t even recognize it as a food. Also, it is almost always made out of genetically modified corn.

    6. It has been shown to increase osteoporosis, tooth decay, anemia, osteoarthritis, and many other leaky gut symptoms.

    Do yourself a favor and ditch the Halloween candy filled with high fructose corn syrup. There are tons of healthier alternatives that will leave you more satisfied and healthier in the long run.
