By controlling blood sugar and insulin levels you control your body weight and body fat percentage. The two main organs that play a major role in this process are namely the liver and the pancreas. Sweeteners can have a direct and indirect influence on the pancreas. As soon as we eat something sweet the pancreas pours out insulin. This is one way in which aspartame affects the pancreas.
It can also cause considerable stimulation of the exocrine part of the pancreas that involves the pancreatic juices. Aspartame and glucose can release almost the same amount of insulin. Something to think about if you are a diabetic patient.
The absorption of Aspartame from the intestines immediately passes to the liver where it is metabolized aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methanol. 90% of Aspartame are amino acids (Phenylalanine and Aspartic acid) which are normally used in the synthesis of protoplasm when supplied by eating. However they can become neurotoxic when accompanied by other amino acids. This puts a lot of stress on the liver and drains the liver of energy. As a result less fat burning in the liver cells which will lead to storage of fat. The end result: a fatty liver that makes it extremely difficult to loose body fat/ weight.
