Splenda Essentials Sweetener Review – Updated Review – I know longer believe this product should be consumed by any human or animal ever

Today I received a free sample from Splenda. They sent me 4 free packets of their new sweeteners that have added antioxidants in them. Also available is the sweetener with fiber or B vitamins. I chose the antioxidants for my free sample. Splenda also sent me two free coupons for $1 off any Splenda Essentials No calorie sweetener. I plan on using them ASAP!

Review of Splenda Essentials No calorie sweetener:
I made a nice sweet tea for myself and tried the Splenda with Antioxidants for the sweetener. I thought that the Splenda essentials tasted just like regular Splenda. I didn’t notice the extra added good for you ingredients. That is a good thing! I think I will use my coupon and get the Splenda essentials with the B vitamins for more energy! Maybe one of each packet, fiber, B vitamin, and antioxidant for a more healthy me! If you use Splenda already, these Splenda Essentials products are a no brainer!! Use them and get added benefits for yourself and your family!!!

UPDATE 4-25-2013
I no longer believe in this product.  I was so wrong about Splenda having “extra added good for you ingredients”.  I have since wised up and know better.  Splenda is just a brand name for Sucralose.

This information is from Dr. Mercola’s website:

The Web site www.TruthAboutSplenda.com lists a variety of consumer complaints from Splenda consumption, many of which mimic other health conditions. Some of the most commonly reported adverse effects include:

  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Seizures, dizziness, and migraines
  • Blurred vision
  • Allergic reactions
  • Blood sugar increases and weight gain

But that’s not all. Now, an in-depth scientific review 12 of sucralose published in the The Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health 3 reveals an extensive list of safety concerns, including toxicity, DNA damage, and heightened carcinogenic potential when used in cooking.
