Yep, it’s that time of year again. I’m not talking about fall or football. I’m talking about the three-month siege on your blood sugar that begins with Halloween’s treats, runs through Thanksgiving’s pumpkin pie and culminates with December’s seemingly infinite sugary temptations.

Now, you may think today’s column is only for diabetics. It’s not. The truth is there are many health experts that believe our overconsumption of sugar and the toll it takes on the body is a primary factor in developing heart disease, cancer, dementia and of course type 2 diabetes. Today, I want to give you some information on what you can do about it.

The first step in balancing blood sugar is to understand the role of insulin. Every time you eat sugar, your body uses insulin to push glucose (sugar) into your cells to convert it to energy. However, if your cells are constantly bombarded with insulin, they can become resistant to its effects. Instead of getting into the cell, now the glucose remains in the bloodstream. This causes your body to produce even more insulin and the cycle repeats. This process wreaks havoc on your whole body.

While proper diet is the best strategy, supplements can play a major supportive role. One that has worked very well for many is Glucose Support. Glucose Support is quite possibly the most comprehensive formula I’ve seen and features some of the most well researched natural blood sugar regulators available, including chromium, vanadium, gymnema, bitter melon and alpha lipoic acid among others. These remedies work with your body to process glucose more efficiently. We’ve heard numerous success stories about this product.
