Do not buy or eat anything with Aspartame, NutraSweet, Splenda or other excitotoxin sweeteners in it. Excito-toxins are very stressful on brain function, and much more so with MTBI. For beverage sweeteners, use liquid or powdered stevia—no carbs there! For baking, use crystallized Xylitol. Use 1/4-cup to every cup of sugar called for in a recipe. This product is low-glycemic and very sweet.
