The body needs sugar as energy to perform its physical and physiological processes. However, this doesn’t mean that you should take it in excess. After all, sugar is readily available in carbohydrates and fresh fruits that you take regularly. We call it natural sugar and it’s rarely a health concern. The biggest concern, nevertheless, is added sugar (sugar added to processed foods and drinks). You’ll find the additive in energy drinks, sodas, juices, cakes, cereals, and desserts.
