What Does Sugar Do to Your Brain?

 

The overconsumption of sugar is increasingly being linked to brain-related health issues such as depression, learning disorders, memory problems and overeating.

Research suggests consumption of sugar and sweets can trigger reward and craving states in your brain similar to addictive drugs. Not all sugars have the identical effects. Fructose has been shown to activate brain pathways that increase your interest in food, whereas glucose triggers your brain’s satiation signal.
