There is no “Sugar Rush” of energy

I feel pretty validated this morning, as I read through my news feed.

Researchers are telling us to give up on the “sugar rush” theory that we all grew up with.

It’s bunk.

“The idea that sugar can improve mood has been widely influential in popular culture, so much so that people all over the world consume sugary drinks to become more alert or combat fatigue,” says co-author Dr. Konstantinos Mantantzis, from Humboldt University of Berlin, in a media release. “Our findings very clearly indicate that such claims are not substantiated – if anything, sugar will probably make you feel worse.”
