dinner for 12 days. While other participants, were given drinks with artificial sweeteners.

The results found that participants consuming sweet drinks have lower cortisol levels during a math test than those who received artificial sweeteners. \”This is the first evidence of the

consumption of high sugar can relieve stress in humans. Although it can reduce stress or anxiety, you should still be careful when eating them, do not go overboard and if there are other health problems, consult your doctor,\” said one researcher, Dr Kevin Laugero of the University of California.
