Ethical Nutrients Chromium Sugar Balance may in normal, healthy people help maintain blood sugar levels, support normal healthy blood sugar and assist normal carbohydrate metabolism.

Low Blood Sugar = Low Energy

Poor energy levels, sugar cravings, a “foggy” head, headaches and mood swings… Do any of these symptoms sound familiar? If so, perhaps you need to consider what is going on with your blood glucose (sugar) levels. The term “blood sugar levels” refers to the amount of sugar floating around in your blood at any given time. These levels tend to fluctuate throughout the day based on the type of food you consume and how often you eat. If these levels become too high or too low, they can produce a myriad of undesirable symptoms; if this goes on unchecked for a long period of time, abnormal blood sugar levels can lead to more serious complications, such as weight gain and an increased risk of chronic health conditions.

Unfortunately, due to our modern dietary and lifestyle habits, properly managing blood sugar levels is becoming a greater challenge than ever before, however the pay-off is worth it. Maintaining blood sugar levels within a normal range can lead to many other general health benefits such as increased energy, better concentration, easier weight loss, stronger immunity and improved mood – who wouldn’t want that? To adequately support healthy blood sugar levels, it helps to first understand exactly how the body controls them.

The Body’s Control over Blood Sugar Levels

The bloodstream acts as a vehicle to carry oxygen and nutrients, including glucose, to cells and organs around the body. Glucose is the primary fuel used by the body to create energy, and as such, there will be some glucose travelling around the body at all times. After we eat, glucose from the breakdown of food, specifically carbohydrates, is absorbed into the bloodstream through the wall of the intestine. This leads to a subsequent rise in the levels of glucose in the blood following meals. To counteract this increase, the pancreas produces the hormone insulin. Insulin acts like a key, opening the way for glucose from the blood to enter cells where it can be used for energy production or stored for later use.

The amounts by which our blood sugar levels fluctuate depend on what, and when we eat. For instance, if we eat a meal high in sugar (such as white pasta, white bread, and many cereals to name a few examples), this causes a rapid increase in the amount of sugar present in the blood. This prompts the body to produce more insulin in a bid to overcome hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar levels). When refined carbohydrates and sugary foods are consumed on a regular basis, year after year, a dangerous cascade occurs. Insulin levels remain chronically high, and cells become less responsive to the effects of insulin. As a consequence, the body has difficulty adequately managing blood glucose levels.

Diet - the Cornerstone of Health

The key to achieving well-balanced blood glucose levels is healthy dietary and lifestyle habits. With the current Western-style diet, that is rich in refined and processed foods and sugar, it is no surprise that blood sugar-related illnesses are on the rise. Eating healthy foods and exercising regularly is the most effective way to sustain healthy blood glucose levels for long term health.

Keep Blood Sugar Levels in Check

Whilst diet is a key factor in managing blood sugar levels, the fact of the matter is, we are all human and our diet will never be 100% perfect, 100% of the time. Occasionally, we need a little extra help getting our body into our desired state of health. The very nature of blood sugar irregularities can make it difficult to get into that initial pattern of healthy eating habits; particularly when sugar cravings leave us hankering for sweet, refined carbohydrates, which only perpetuate the whole process. For this reason, Ethical Nutrients have recently released a product for those suffering from the effects of uncontrollable blood sugar levels, who need a little kick-start to get blood sugar levels into a healthy pattern. Ethical Nutrients Chromium Sugar Balance contains a combination of carefully selected herbs and nutrients to assist carbohydrate metabolism and maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Chromium and cinnamon are two key ingredients that may help to maintain healthy blood glucose levels. Both chromium and the antioxidant, alpha lipoic acid, are required for normal carbohydrate metabolism. Additionally, the herb gymnema has a long history of traditional use in Ayurvedic medicine to support blood glucose levels. At just 1 tablet twice daily, this formula is easy to take and ideal for people suffering from symptoms of blood sugar irregularities, or those on a weight loss program wanting to reduce diet blowouts caused by sugar cravings.

Sugar Cravings be Gone!

Blood sugar irregularities can produce an assortment of uncomfortable and undesirable symptoms, which you may have come to accept as part of your daily life. They can also cause sugar cravings, which are perhaps preventing you from sticking to your diet and shifting excess weight. Either way, these symptoms can easily be minimised through healthy dietary practices, and support with a supplement such as the Ethical Nutrients Chromium Sugar Balance. Through maintaining healthy blood glucose levels you can both look and feel better— and possibly fit into those pants that you haven’t been able to wear for years!
