Eating Sugar Makes You Deficient of These Important Nutrients

The sugar is the available and approved substitute of poison. Sometimes I feel bad when I talk about sugar. It’s like sucking my mind into thinking about it all the time.

You already know that sugar is the base of many diseases and obesity. People are having trouble digesting sugar, but somehow they still eat it.

I mean, people know that cigarettes are dangerous and an unhealthy habit, but they still smoke.
Sometimes I feel like people are so stubborn and follow those unhealthy habits avoiding what’s good for them in their life.
I have to say that life is too short to be unhealthy.
Aside causing diseases and obesity, there is something else connected to sugar.
It’s a huge problem. The large sugar intake contributes to nutrient deficiencies by displacing more nutritious foods.
Let’s take a look at the most common nutrients that really suffer from large sugar intake.
Let’s dig in.

Eating Sugar Makes You Deficient of These Important Nutrients

Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency is really big during the winter period of time. The sun is not that present and the only way to get this vitamin is through healthy food.
With that being said, when you eat sugar, that deficiency grows even bigger.
Researchers have revealed that the intake of sugar plays a major role in expressing the enzymes responsible for degrading vitamin D. Also, it decreases the expression of an enzyme that helps you synthesize vitamin D.

The result of all this is impairing the ability of your body to synthesize the vitamin D because the sugar enhanced the breakdown into the kidneys.
Right, when you think that it can’t get worse.
The vitamin D and high sugar intake could enter in a vicious cycle. It’s said that the low levels of this vitamin can boost the inflammatory properties of sugar.
Imagine this happening in your body.


The calcium plays a major role in supporting the health of your bones and teeth. It assists the work in blood coagulation and acts as an electrolyte.

As you can see, there are some crucial roles assigned to this nutrient. Just imagine what could happen if you are deficient in it.
You can say that calcium deficiency is a collateral damage from the sugar vs. vitamin D fight.
The working process of calcium largely depends on vitamin D (vitamin D3) and with the lowering effects sugar has on vitamin D, our body becomes deficient in calcium, as well.

When your doctor said that your body is a connected machine, he was right.
Along with the fructose, absorbing another form of sugar, glucose, has shown damage to the kidneys. It’s said that glucose increases the calcium excretion by the kidneys.
That’s really bad.


Another crucial nutrient required for our body. Magnesium does it al. It regulates your muscles and nerve function, helps the procedure of making protein, builds the bones, synthesizes the DNA, and regulates blood sugar levels.
As I said, it does it all!
Can you afford to be deficient in magnesium? If the answer was no, then stop eating sugar.
Here is why:
The high level of sugar intake leads to preventing tubular reabsorption and slowly eats the magnesium reserves in your body. This procedure increases the level of elimination of magnesium by the kidneys.


Same thing goes for chromium, as well. The high sugar intake leads to deficiency. The sugar has the ability to provoke your body to eliminate chromium through the urine.
Refined sugar has insulinogenic properties that directly impact the chromium causing deficiency.
One thing leads to another and the chromium deficiency leads to poor glucose tolerance and higher blood sugar levels.

Vitamin C

You felt really prone to colds for the past few months, right?
Your high sugar intake makes you vitamin C deficient. As you already know, vitamin C shows up everywhere when you search for natural remedies for colds and coughs.
A research shows that sugar can slow down the absorption of Vitamin C. According to Dr. John Ely and his research about vitamin C and sugar, the war between Vitamin C and glucose ends in a slight advantage to the sugar. It restricts the Vitamin C from entering the cells which lead to reduced immune function.
I said slight advantage because many fruits are naturally high in Vitamin C that could help you offset these effects. However, don’t take this for granted because you are ingesting high levels of refined sweeteners like white sugar or corn syrup.
This leads to the final question. Should you avoid sugar?
You tell me.
Don’t forget to share this with your friends. They need to get educated more about sugar and its damaging properties.
