If you have high blood sugar levels you are 50% more likely to be at risk from heart disease, it also can be a factor in poor energy levels.

Obviously avoiding food with high in refined sugar in will help but by adding 2 nutrients to your diet you can vastly help to reduce blood sugar levels and improve the body’s response to insulin.

Cinnamon is the first one and so easy to include in your diet.  Cinnamon contains a compound called methylhydroxy chalcone polymer (MHCP). It works with the insulin in your body to help properly process sugar. All you need is just one teaspoon of cinnamon per day in your diet, cinnamon powder is the best way to take it and bear in mind that a cinnamon stick doesn’t have the same effect.

Chromium is the second nutrient, it is essential for healthy insulin function.  Chromium helps to move blood sugar from the bloodstream to cells for energy and helps to mobilise fats, carbohydrates and proteins for energy too

We only need small amounts of chromium and it can be found in whole grain breads and cereals, lean meats, cheeses, and some spices, such as black pepper and thyme. Brewer’ s yeast is also rich in chromium. You could also supplement your diet with added chromium, found in health stores but always check the dosage is right for you.
