Aspartame is in 5 hour energy shots, Yoplait light yogurt, 90% of gum and mints (Dentynne, Trident, Breath Savers), some candy, some ice cream, check labels for fat free or low fat foods (also sugar free food items). It's in Crystal Light and seemingly healthy flavored bottled water (also the small bottles of flavoring you add to plain bottled water). In other words, check all labels. You need to be careful of some detox products, you can quickly become dehydrated or feel very ill from them. Renew Life products are reliable, I have used their probiotics and they are safe. I believe Renew Life makes a detox, you can search their website. Good luck to you. I do hope you find relief and can get back to being a normal teenager (I'm a mom so I related to your comment about wanting to be normal again).
