Blood Sugar Control

by Kunal K March 18, 2024 2 min read

Certain foods and supplements can aid in quickly lowering blood sugar levels by enhancing insulin sensitivity, delaying carbohydrate absorption, or directly impacting glycaemic control.

Here are some food items and supplements that can assist in managing blood sugar levels, with Berberine standing out as exceptional.image.png

 


Foods
- Fiber-rich Foods: Soluble fiber-rich foods like oats, legumes, vegetables, and fruits can slow down the process of sugar absorption into the bloodstream, resulting in a gradual rise in blood sugar.


- Vinegar: The acetic acid found in vinegar has the ability to regulate blood sugar levels by decreasing the speed at which carbohydrates are absorbed and enhancing insulin sensitivity. Consuming a small amount of vinegar prior to a meal may positively impact postprandial glucose levels.


- Cinnamon: With compounds that mimic insulin's actions and help transport glucose into cells, cinnamon aids in reducing blood sugar levels. Additionally, it may enhance insulin sensitivity over time.

Green Tea is rich in polyphenols like epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that can impact blood sugar regulation by boosting insulin sensitivity and lowering carbohydrate absorption.

Bitter Melon (Karela) possesses components that mimic insulin's actions, aiding in the reduction of blood sugar levels by increasing glucose uptake and enhancing glucose tolerance.

Fenugreek seeds are abundant in soluble fiber which slows down carbohydrate digestion and absorption. Fenugreek can help lower blood sugar levels after meals.


Supplements
- Chromium: This trace mineral boosts insulin activity and plays a role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Supplements containing chromium can improve glucose regulation among individuals facing issues like diabetes or insulin resistance.

- Magnesium: Low magnesium levels have been associated with insulin resistance- a key characteristic of diabetes. Increasing magnesium intake through dietary sources or supplementing could lead to improved insulin sensitivity and decreased blood sugar readings.

Berberine "The metabolic master switch" which is present in various plants, has demonstrated benefits in enhancing insulin sensitivity and promoting glucose uptake by cells. This can aid in reducing blood sugar levels. Berberine activates AMPK, an enzyme crucial for regulating the body's energy levels. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), an antioxidant compound, can enhance insulin sensitivity and alleviate symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. It aids in decreasing fasting blood glucose levels and improving insulin resistance.

Gymnema Sylvestre: "The sugar destroyer," can help reduce sugar cravings and lower blood sugar levels. It may contribute to better insulin production and regeneration of pancreas islet cells, both of which can help lower blood sugar levels

BIOptimizers Blood Sugar Breakthrough contains ingredients that could help balance blood sugar, support weight loss, reduce cravings, and boost energy.



Blood Sugar Breakthrough Australia

The ingredients in Blood Sugar Breakthrough work by supporting insulin function, enhancing glucose metabolism, promoting fat breakdown, and providing antioxidant protection to improve overall metabolic health.

Magnesium, Insulin Resistance, Prediabetes and Diabetes

by Kunal K April 18, 2024 3 min read

It takes 10-15 years or prediabetes before clinical Type 2 diabetes is typically diagnosed. That is to say, it takes years of overconsumption of simple carbs, processed foods combined with a high stress (sympathetic-dominant) lifestyle. It's a long process with plenty of time to intervene using something as simple as 410mg of magnesium a day, before the body (and mind) break down irreversibly.
