Two Minute Trick Tames Dangerous Blood Sugar Spikes
Managing your blood sugar levels isn’t as easy as popping a handful of supplements.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that you don’t have to overhaul your diet or spend all your waking hours working to keep dangerous blood sugar spikes in check.
In fact, doing this ONE simple thing for just TWO minutes after every meal can help you maintain steady, balanced blood sugar levels.
In as little as six minutes a day, you could slash your risk of ever developing type 2 diabetes.
Staying diabetes-free is all about managing your blood sugar levels, of course.
But as simple as that sounds at first, it’s actually a multi-step process.
It starts with the beta cells in your pancreas releasing insulin which works like a key to unlock your cells. This allows glucose to exit the bloodstream and enter the cells, where it can be used for energy.
If your blood sugar spikes too fast, like after a carb-heavy meal… or is constantly too high (think a bagel for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, pizza and soda for dinner, and some ice cream for dessert) … it’s hard for your pancreas to keep up.
When glucose isn’t shuttled into the cells where it can be useful, it stays in the bloodstream and wreaks havoc.
Over time, that excess sugar can cause your arteries to inflame, thicken, and stiffen. This puts your heart under more stress, eventually leading to damage that can trigger to heart disease.
Eating less sugar is the best way to keep your blood sugar levels low. However, it’s not just WHAT you eat that matters—it’s what you do after you eat.
When researchers reviewed the results of seven studies, they found that taking a walk after a meal lowered blood sugar and insulin levels and significantly reduced diabetes risk.
These studies showed that people who got moving within 60 to 90 minutes after a meal had more gradual changes in their blood sugar levels. Meanwhile, the couch potatoes had the kind of glucose spikes that can be so harmful.
Avoiding blood sugar spikes is vital for diabetics and non-diabetics alike. So adopting this simple habit can help ALL of us get, and stay, healthy.
Best of all, you barely have to break a sweat to make a difference. In fact, a two to five-minute walk can do the trick.
One study showed that just two minutes of moderate movement could be as beneficial at preventing blood sugar spikes as 15.
In other words, no excuses!
P.S. Diet and exercise are key for keeping blood sugar in check. But they aren’t the only way to get your numbers moving in the right direction. You can pick up this powerful blood sugar solution in the supplement aisle.
