According to a new study, it is said that artificial sweeteners increase appetite and can harm you more.
Researchers identified a new system in the brain that senses and integrates the sweetness and energy content of food.
The test was conducted on animals and it was seen after serving food with artificial sweetener to them, after a while they started eating more.
It was found that inside the brain reward centers, the sweet sensation is linked to energy content.
When sweetness versus energy is out of balance for a period of time, the brain recalibrates and increases total calories consumed, said a researcher.
When researchers investigated why animals were eating more even though they had enough calories, They found that chronic consumption of this artificial sweetener actually increases the sweet intensity of real nutritive sugar, and this then increases the animal's overall motivation to eat more food.
Many people in the world consume artificial sweetener and without knowing that artificial sweeteners increase appetite.
Researchers also found artificial sweeteners promoted hyperactivity, insomnia and decreased sleep quality.
