Do you have sugar cravings? Did you know too much sugar in your body causes depletion of the mineral -chromium? And chromium deficiency in turn will cause more sugar cravings…a vicious cycle! Doctors have known for a long time that chromium increases the action of insulin in your body. You need insulin for transporting sugar inside your cells and for maintaining proper blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Cholesterol affects the metabolism of your blood sugar. That’s why many people having cholesterol concerns also suffer from blood sugar problems. A pleasant side effect of increases chromium is lowered LDL cholesterol as well as triglycerides levels.
Biotin, a member of the B vitamin complex, stimulates liver glucose activity, increases insulin production, and enhances the amount of glucose your muscle cells can absorb…according to a report of US Pharmacist in 2006.
There are other natural nutrients that help with blood sugar, such as cinnamon, gymnema sylvestre (an Indian herb in Ayurvedic medicine), olive leaf, Spirulina, hawthorn berries, garlic and chickweed.
Instead of taking toxic drugs that don’t really work, you can actually increase your intake of these nutrients to naturally correct your blood sugar problems.
