Splenda® is the commercial name and registered trade mark of a
sucralose-based artificial sweetener derived from sugar discovered
and owned by the British company by Tate & Lyle and the American
company Johnson & Johnson. It was approved by the FDA in 1998 and
since its introduction there in 1999, sucralose has overtaken Equal
in the artificial sweetener market in America. Note that Chinese
manufacturers produce copycat versions of Splenda products which are
sold under different brand names.
Despite advertisements stating it is Made from Sugar, so it Tastes

no elements of natural sugar. Splenda is comprised of the
high-potency artificial sweetener sucralose (1.1%) and the fillers
maltodextrin and glucose.

the same chlorine that goes in swimming pools. And just like

sucralose kill off healthy bacteria that lives in your gut — healthy

sucralose levels that are approved by the FDA for use in the food
Did you know that over 80% of your immune system finds it’s home in
your gut? In fact, there are more than 100 TRILLION living bacteria
in your gut that control many aspects of your health, and due to
things like the ingestion of artificial sweeteners like Splenda®,
most folks have created a massive bacterial imbalance in their body.
But, it doesn’t just stop with the use of Splenda® or other
artificial sweeteners. There are MANY other factors that are
contributing to the bacterial imbalances that BILLIONS of folks are
silently suffering from all around the world.
The bottom line; if you value your life and the life of your family,
avoid this product.
