Ayurvedic Sugar (Gur Shakkar) Vs Refined Sugar
Used for centuries in India and South America, Ayurvedic Sugar ( Gur Shakkar), Jaggery or Panela, is full of all the essential nutrients that are contained in sugar cane. Ayurvedic Sugar (Gur Shakkar) is made from juice of sugarcane which is then boiled until it solidifies.
Refined Sugar is made from sugar cane or sugar beets, which are then heavily processed to extract sugar. Refined white Sugar contains a lot of calories and no essential nutrients. Refined sugars use your body’s stored calcium, magnesium and B-vitamins to facilitate their digestion. In turn it can lead to various symptoms of fatigue, depression and anxiety. For people who are inactive and eat a largely Western diet, large amounts of fructose from added sugars get turned into fat that is stored in the liver, which can lead to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Using the right kind of sugars for daily use is the basis of a healthy diet.
Un-adulterated foods have formed the basis of our human diet through the ages. Chemical farming inputs and “factory farming” became popular in the middle of the last century as a way to maximize crop yields. Today, our world pays a large price for these practices, which have resulted in environmental and economic imbalances. What happens to the health of the animals, plants, micro-organisms, soil, oceans, and atmosphere, also affects human beings. There is no one who is immune to the effects of an unhealthy environment, no matter how much technology or wealth they may possess. Our children are particularly vulnerable to the dangers of agricultural toxins as they consume a higher percentage in relation to their size. The average child receives four times more exposure to at least eight widely used cancer-causing pesticides found in food than the average adult does.
The foundation for healthy plants and animals is healthy soil. Organic farming practices help protect water quality, prevent soil erosion, maintain and enhance seed, crop, and ecological biodiversity. Organic food is free from the highly toxic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and growth hormones used in intensive farming and they are also free of artificial colorings, flavorings, additives, sweeteners and the thousands of other unwanted and unnecessary chemicals used in food.
