Sugar Is Not a Sweet Deal for Your Health

Tomato sauce, fat free dressing, tonic water, marinates, crackers and even bread— they all have something in common that is not good for your body. Sugar. Yes, there are surprisingly high levels of added sugar in these products according to the Center for Disease Control which estimates that we get 16% of our calories from “added sugars” in our diets.

At Sunwerks, we care about you and your body.

Therefore, it makes sense that we are concerned about your sugar intake.

Scientific Studies

A 2013 study in the Journal of the American Heart Association put forth powerful evidence that sugar can affect your heart’s pumping mechanism and that could increase risk for heart failure.

A 2010 study presented at The Endocrine Society’s 92nd Annual Meeting in San Diego found that excess fructose intake ( the high-fructose corn syrup in soft drinks and processed foods) in children actually caused “visceral fat cells to mature” — in other words, a big belly and even bigger future risk for heart disease and diabetes.

Regulations Are for Your Safety

At Sunwerks, our “deal” is that we want to give you a healthy tan because we have more control over the ratio of UVB vs UVA rays.

There are safety regulations we follow. We care about your eye safety, so we won’t do the tan unless you wear eye coverings. We regulate the amount of time for each session.

Check out this video from Go Healthy with Stefan to see how you can regulate your sugar intake.

No pun intended, but we hope some of you are seeing the light about sugar. We’ll talk more about it as we accumulate additional info.
