It’s All about Insulin Function – Help Make Improvements You Didn’t Even Know Were Possible!
In our regular diets, we often take in sugar and other carbohydrates without realizing the potential adverse effects they can have on our health in the long-term. How often do you consume pasta, bread, dessert, sugary drinks, fruits, or even other carbohydrates? All of these foods can increase blood glucose (sugar) levels. This situation is dangerous, and it's important to recognize this fact whether your health is suffering, or you are simply trying to plan for the future.
Here are a few signs to look for:
- Food cravings—even after you eat, you feel like you always need to eat
- Feel sluggish
- Jittery and nervous (anxious)
- Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
- Headaches and difficulty concentrating
- Frequent urination
- Increased thirst
- Blurred vision
If you experience any of the above or feel fatigue after eating, lack the energy to do basic tasks, and snack to no end, there is a good chance your body is not processing sugar correctly. Maybe you have experienced only one of these conditions; maybe you have experienced all of them. Whatever the case, you want and deserve answers.
It comes down to insulin function. Insulin is responsible for transporting glucose (sugar) to your cells as a source of energy (fuel) to be used by the body (i.e., organs, brain, muscles, cells) to function properly, but over time, excessive levels of insulin can make your cells lose sensitivity to this hormone. From there, your body becomes unable to manage glucose and it ends up accumulating in your bloodstream. Having poorly managed blood glucose levels can lead to fatigue, irritability, dizziness, hunger, and weight gain in the short-term and obesity and other serious health complications in the long-term—all of which, diminish your quality of life.
