Do you struggle with blood sugar control or poor insulin sensitivity?
In today’s video I’m going to show you how to naturally control your blood sugar and naturally increase your insulin sensitivity.
So first off you might be wondering, what is insulin?
Insulin is a hormone that’s produced by your pancreas that helps you turn sugar from the carbohydrates you eat into energy. It also allows your body to store sugar for future use.
Your muscles and liver take the stored sugar and stored as glycogen which cause your muscle cells to expand. Likewise your fat cells store the sugar as triglycerides and then they expand as well.
What is insulin sensitivity and insulin resistance?
Insulin sensitivity is how receptive your body is to the insulin it produces. When your body is properly sensitive to insulin, it uses our insulin produced and then effectively removes it from the bloodstream by making energy and storing glucose for later. Now you want your insulin to be sensitive, because the more sensitive your insulin is the more receptive your body is to that insulin that produced.
Being more insulin sensitive will allow you to better utilize carbohydrates that you eat for energy, building muscle, and it’s also going to help you store or less fat. What’s even better is that greater insulin sensitivity is actually going to lead to higher testosterone levels in men.
Now what are some signs that you might have poor insulin sensitivity or have developed insulin resistance?
Higher insulin levels can cause weight gain, higher insulin levels can cause aging, higher insulin levels reduced testosterone levels, higher insulin levels increases cravings for sugar and carbohydrate rich foods, and higher insulin levels lead to blood pressure issues.
Now with all this in mind if you’re one of those people that you feel like your blood sugar all day is all over the place depending on what you eat and when you eat and you get hangry and get crazy when you don’t have food, if you needed help with blood sugar control, if you need to increase your insulin sensitivity naturally, you don’t want to go take drugs and that sort of thing I’ve got three natural compounds that you can use today to simply and quickly increase your insulin sensitivity naturally and get control over those cravings.
