While this sugar is used for many things such as sweet tea, cocktails, and french toast, this sugar is being known for causing major health issues in adults.

Agave nectar is the sugar in question. Agave can destabilize the liver after consumption over a long period of time due to the high amounts of fructose. Fructose cannot be used by the body like glucose so instead it is sent to the liver for it to break down. Too much Agave can harm the liver due to build up of the sugar.

This sugar could also raise the risk of heart disease over time due to the high density of sugar. This causes high blood pressure and low levels of “good” cholesterol which can cause further damage to the body.
