Brain 1/13

Sugar has a myriad of effects on our brains. Excessive consumption can trigger an intense reward response which, once overstimulated, can induce symptoms of addiction. It can also exacerbate depression and anxiety by causing energy spikes followed by crashes, as well as messing with the neurotransmitters that help regulate our mood. Sugar has even been linked to dementia, as high blood glucose levels can lead to memory loss.
