Artificial colours, artificial food dye or food colouring, whatever name it’s called, seems pretty harmless? Wrong. Here at Raw Gear, we’ve done extensive research into artificial colours, and why it is bad for you. Artificial food dyes are unfortunately found in quite a lot of processed foods. Not only do artificial colours add absolutely no nutritional value to the food that we are eating, it also has been linked to long-term health risks. It has been linked to eczema, mood swings, hyperactivity, sleep disturbances, increased risky behaviour, ear infections, headaches, hypersensitivity, obesity, asthma, diabetes, cancer, and possibly hypoglycaemia. They also can cause an increase in hyperactivity in children. Shocking right? We know. At Raw Gear, we’re constantly reviewing our shakes to improve the nutritional content. We can proudly say that all of our products are completely free of artificial food colours. Try our products without exposure to any artificial colours. At the end of the day, you will have peace of mind knowing that there are no artificial nasties.
