Too much sugar or corn syrup can stress the digestive system and can interfere with the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Sugar can also upset your metabolism. A large intake of sugar can give you an energy rush that can spike your insulin and create imbalance in your body...this can lead to forgetfulness, confusion, depression and ADHD.

Consuming less sugar or using an alternative sweetener can reduce the symptoms.
