Blood Sugar Formula

by Alisa Princy (2019-11-24)

Along with following a low GL Blood Sugar Formula Review diet, introducing other dietary compounds such as cinnamon and chromium has been found to aid blood glucose control. Cinnamon contains an ingredient called MCHP, which mimics the action of insulin, and therefore increases glucose metabolism. Studies have shown that just 1g of cinnamon per day (1/2 a teaspoon) is enough to lower blood glucose and levels of 'bad' LDL cholesterol in type 2 diabetics, with some volunteers even achieving normal blood sugar levels. Chromium is the other key nutrient in reducing or reversing diabetes. This non-toxic mineral is essential for insulin regulation and glucose control. Chromium's role in insulin regulation was first proven in the 1970s. We now know that the essential mineral increases insulin binding, increases the number of insulin receptors and also increases insulin effectiveness; all of which lead to improved glucose transport into muscle, fat and liver tissue, and therefore better glucose control. In fact chromium has been shown to dramatically decrease the need for medication in many diabetics and in some cases eliminate the need for drugs completely Thirteen out of fifteen studies have shown that chromium, usually at levels of 400mcg to 600mcg a day, is remarkably effective - in fact so much so that, if you are diabetic I recommend you monitor your blood sugar carefully and inform your doctor since you may need to reduce your diabetic medication (especially sulfonylurea medication). The answer therefore seems to be to combine a low GL. If you intend to take a low GL diet, I recommend Patrick Holford's Book - The Holford Low GL Diet. It contain the essential information you will need.
