I’m making this post so I can warn others who are sensitive to vitamins/supplements before they end up in the state I did.
I have been drinking 1 huel (2 scoops) every morning for the last 7 weeks and eating as I normally would.
The last few weeks I have become increasingly confused, anxious, depressed, agitated, lethargic, tired the list goes on… I didn’t relate any of this to Huel until I started researching last week…
If you do your research, b vitamins can cause anxiety it lots of people as they stimulate the same pathways as caffeine in the brain which I can’t drink as it does make me anxious. Also look up the side effects of selenium and folate (folic acid). Both can very bad for you but I think also what has had a massive effect is copper.
“ Depending on the severity of the copper toxicity and the susceptibility of the person, copper can affect the mind moderately or very severely. The milder effects are initially positive because it is activating and stimulating and can increase creativity and productivity. I’ve witnessed this myself, as I used to feel as if my chronic anxiety motivated me to accomplish a lot of work. It may be why creative people tend be [ depressed and anxious
But as the toxicity continues and builds up more and more, it becomes increasingly exhausting on the body and the individual can start to break down mentally, leading to an inability to cope adequately with stress. The anxious person’s fatigued body can’t keep up with their overactive mind, and medication often becomes necessary.”
I have experience all of these symptoms first hand I went to the doctors on the verge of a mental breakdown and was given anti depressants which I didn’t take, I stopped drinking huel 7 days ago and am almost completely back to normal apart from some mild anxiety.
In a nutshell overloading your body with nutrients it does not need it a bad idea, well for me it was anyway.
Anybody can try and discredit me and that’s fine but I know how I felt/feel and I’m just telling you be carefu.
