Cravings are your bodys way of telling you your hormones are out of sync. Particularly, insulin which regulate your blood sugar. •
Symptoms of a blood sugar imbalance include brain fog, fatigue, poor memory, afternoon slumps, weight gain and cravings for sugars.
This can happen in two ways........
• (1) from eating too much carbohydrates, refined and sugary carbohydrates and
• (2) stress
Essentially the body releases glucose (sugar) from these sources triggering insulin, when we eat too much of the wrong carbohydrates or allow stress to take over our bodies this can cause insulin to rise and fall too quickly.
It is this rise and fall that contributes to the symptoms of a blood sugar imbalance and the feeling of fatigue, brain fog and poor memory. •
This is one of many things you can do to support brain health and memory. •
