Low Sugar Lifestyle

Leaning Into a Low Sugar Lifestyle

You’ve probably noticed that we mention ‘low sugar’ more often lately. We started Miss Mary's because we care about what we're putting in our bodies. It's no secret that healthy living includes limiting sugar consumption. 



Excess sugar consumption has been linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, premature aging, irritable bowel syndrome, and has even been tied to depression.¹

Still, Americans consume 11 Billion Tons of sugar each year.² 

It is estimated that 68% of processed foods have added sugar,³ so it can really add up fast.

If you’ve tried to reduce your sugar intake, you know what a struggle it can be.

Sugar is Out, But What is In?

“Sugar-free” usually means artificially sweetened. 

It's easy to assume that ingredients approved for use in food and drinks are safe, right?

Research continues to reveal the negative effects of ingredients like saccharin, sucralose, and aspartame. In fact, these artificial sweeteners cause ironic results like sugar & carbohydrate cravings and elevated cortisol levels (think belly fat).

Even more seriously, artificial sweeteners cause disruption of the digestive microbiome and can increase anxiety, depression, migraines, and insomnia.⁴ 

Living a low-sugar lifestyle shouldn't have negative side effects!

Once we learned what artificial sweeteners were doing to our bodies, we felt guilty anytime we ate or drank something with them.

Better ingredients taste and feel better.

From our first Morning Elixir to our latest Sinless Syrups, using quality ingredients and natural sweeteners is a core value at Miss Mary's Mix.

The result is great-tasting, naturally-flavored cocktail mixers, elixirs, and syrups that checked the low (or NO) sugar box.

We use a special combination of natural sweeteners like monk fruit, erythritol, and organic stevia to deliver the classic flavor you want, without the high sugar content you don’t.

These natural sweeteners don't impact blood sugar levels.

Instead, they have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, you aren’t denying the natural craving for sweetness that can sometimes result in a binge. 

We've worked tirelessly to perfect the balance of our natural flavors and natural sweeteners so you can ditch the sugar, not the fun.
