So I was speaking with someone casually today and metioned that I use agave instead of sugar. She told me to be careful because she heard that agave can cause female issues. So I just did some research and was shocked to find out what I saw. Basically it has anti-fertility components. I have been using agave everyday for the last 3 years. I know RE’s say stay away from artificial sweeteners but this is all natural so I never questioned it.
Has anyone heard of this? This is what - found:
“Anordin and dinordin, prepared with steroids derived from the sisal plants Agave sisilana and Agave americana have been used for their antifertility effects. These agents, whose anti-fertility properties have been confirmed by scientists in Sweden and the United States, constitute a potential new family of contraceptives promising the advantage of having to be taken only once or twice a month instead of the 20 times per month necessary with the ordinary pill.”
