Surprising and EASY Trick Controls Your Blood Sugar
Take a “stand” against diabetes…
If you have insulin resistance, you’re one step away from type 2 diabetes.
But the good news is that it’s not too late to do something about it.
There are plenty of ways to increase your insulin sensitivity — like losing weight or exercising.
But researchers just identified another way to help stave off diabetes… and this one might be the easiest one yet.
When it comes to preventing type 2 diabetes, insulin is key.
It’s the hormone that regulates your blood sugar.
It works by “unlocking” your cells so that sugar can go from your bloodstream into your cells to be used as energy.
Numerous factors can contribute to impaired insulin sensitivity or insulin resistance, being overweight and sedentary being two of the biggies.
This is what happens when the insulin “key” stops working as well, which leaves too much sugar in your bloodstream.
This dramatically increases your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
For this recent study, researchers looked at the association between insulin resistance and sedentary behavior, physical activity, and fitness in inactive adults with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
They found that the most important risk factor for insulin sensitivity wasn’t physical activity or fitness level… it was body fat percentage.
However, regardless of all of these other factors, standing was independently associated with better insulin sensitivity.
Yes, all of these factors are important when it comes to healthy insulin sensitivity.
But if you’re struggling to lose weight—or if you’re not able to exercise—this study indicates that something as simple as spending more time standing can play a key role in better insulin sensitivity.
And better insulin sensitivity means a reduced risk of both type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Of course, we should all take time to sit and relax.
But your body simply wasn’t designed to do it all day long.
The more you’re on your feet — and off your butt — the better.
