In this video, we’re going to talk about why diet soda can cause a fatty liver.

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener in most diet sodas that can cause many health problems.

The byproducts of aspartame in the body are phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and methanol. Methanol then turns into formaldehyde. Together, methanol and formaldehyde deplete your glutathione.

Glutathione is one of the primary antioxidants that protect your body. It protects the brain and liver and promotes detoxification.

The depletion of glutathione when drinking diet soda happens in your liver, red blood cells, and brain. In turn, many problems can happen, including:
• Increased liver enzymes ALT and AST
• Hyperglycemia
• Liver lesions
• Liver inflammation
• Liver necrosis
• Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Additionally, diet soda can alter your gut microbiome, which can lead to many other health issues on its own.

In summary, if you are drinking diet sodas with aspartame, make sure you switch to a healthier sweetener like stevia.
