differences. you're an athlete. we made a little competition here for you. when you compare the profiles, there are some differences. let's take best for gut health, because we're talking a lot about the gut. if you compare these four different type of sweeteners, honey performs the best. okay, but they all have different profiles. if you go to something like glycemic control, you'll find monk fruit, gives you less of those sugar spikes. if you're only looking for calories because you're really trying to cut weight and really concerned with the cal looric intake, artificial sweeteners are okay. they are low cal. the dentists hate the sugar because they're bad for our teeth. >> how about sugar in the raw? that's what i use. >> it does the same thing. world health organization, read those labels. 37 grams a day for men. 27 of grams a day max for women.
