  • It's AumSum Time.

  • Why do we crave sugar?

  • Coz sugar contains all the essential nutrients.

  • No.

  • Sugar is found in many food items like chocolates, cakes, ice-creams, etc.

  • Dude.

  • They are really tempting.

  • Indeed.

  • But, when we eat such sugary foods, the sweet-sensing taste buds in our tongue send signals to the brain.

  • In the brain,

  • These signals activate the reward system due to which neurotransmitters like dopamine are released.

  • Dopamine gives us pleasure and makes us feel good.

  • As it makes us feel good, we tend to eat more sweet-sugary foods to get the same feeling.

  • Thus, sugar acts like a drug, making us addictive and thus, causing cravings.

  • However, note that excess sugar is not good for mental as well as physical health.

  • Hence, we can use natural sweeteners like jaggery and honey which don't cause harm and satisfy our cravings.

It's AumSum Time.
