Q. I like to get some nutrition informations

to live a healthy life
A1One thing more! Dear Tester, be careful about what you hear from universities, pharmaceutical industry, FDA and company. Test everything and tell us your conclusions. My parents ate during more than 40 years artificial sweeteners. Now, my father has Diabetes type 2 - the one known as the diabetes for older semesters. My mother had several heart attacks. He is a chemical engineer, but he is not open-minded to the article I gave you above. He will till this death remain diabetic, because he doesn't want to change his habit of life concerning sugar and co. Sugar is not like sugar and you have to test it! White sugar gives caries but biological unrefined brown sugar gives NO CARIES!!! Even your dentist don't know it. Test your dentist! Test your doctor and check out people about her life what kind of sugar or sweeteners they ate before they became diabetics. Here you can learn how you test your doctor:
A2Hi tester, I love your name, because I think you do what you say. I would advice you to take one step after another. So start to know about sugar and the other sugar. You don't know the difference? This is the point. So please read this speech of Dr. med. S.P. Moritz and ask me if you have difficulties to understand.

Thank you for testing me!

A1You got it.

It gives energy to the body and makes you active and helps you to think and so is the main constituent of your diet.
A3They are called organic compounds- with saccharides being the most important, and include starch, celluose, and glycogen. Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for all bodily functions, as well as are necessary to metabolize the nutrients from the food you eat. If you are low on carbohydrates, you will be fatigued, depressed, and your heart will act weird from lack of electrolytes.
