I haven't looked into it much, but I thought there were some recent studies showing that artificial sweeteners didn't effect the gut biome. I remember Suppversity having a post on it.Makes my stomach hurt. I'm not sold that the level to which it alters gut bacteria is good at all. Stevia is less potent in this regard, has blood sugar benefits, and doesn't upset my stomach.
Is this the study?I haven't looked into it much, but I thought there were some recent studies showing that artificial sweeteners didn't effect the gut biome. I remember Suppversity having a post on it.
http://suppversity.blogspot.com/2015/07/anti-microbial-effects-of-artificial.htmlEventually, the data in Figure 1 shows us only one thing: The gut microbiome is like a finger-print. It's different for all of us and despite changes due to artificial sweetener consumption, there's no clear pattern in any of the artificial sweetener groups that would allow us to predict negative or positive effects based on what we know now.
Against that background I would try not to freak out about the fact that aspartame and acesulfam-k can affect your gut microbiome. There is no, and I repeat, no convincing experimental evidence in humans that would remotely confirm that any potential changes of the gut microbiome that occur in response to the consumption of artificial sweeteners would entail ill health effects.
Have you tried the KAL brand white stevia? If not don't close the door just yet. I have tried upwards of 30+ stevia products over the last 20 years and this is the one that most haters actually like. Of course it has to be added to something not used straight. It also is the most potent one I have ever come across. A 3.5oz bottle has 2381 servings to give you an idea. DO NOT BUY THEIR RAW GREEN ONE.i absolutely loathe stevia. tastes so bad.
You can buy potassium nitrate caps for very cheap if you know where to look (<$0.20 per 750mg). SNS also has Vaso6 caps, but they’re a bit more pricey than the nitrates. Bulk citrulline powder also works well, but I’m not sure if you want unflavored powders. I often just use one thing for pumps, but two would be plenty for just about anyone IMO. Rhodiola caps would also be solid for endurance and also affordable.Pumps and endurance/performance increases.
