S ugar is a nutrient-depleting substance, devoid of its own nutrients. Thus, when consumed, our body will pull nutrients from other sources within our bodies in an attempt to make worth of digesting it, and thereby taking away from our own precious storage. Those who regularly consume even small amounts of refined processed sugar need additional supplementation of vitamins and minerals for two reasons:
1) so they can replace any depleted nutrients
2) such supplements as the B vitamins, vitamin C, the amino acid Glutamine and chromium and other minerals may help to balance out the fluctuating blood sugar levels that result when eating sugar. Better balanced blood sugars will help reduce further cravings for sweets, helping to break the vicious cycle.
