#Bloodsugar, or glucose, is our main source of energy. It dictates how hungry and energetic we feel. ✳️Blood sugar is produced when we break down any carbohydrate—from 🥔quinoa to 🎂cake. The key idea 💡with respect to blood sugar is ⚖️balance. We feel best 🏋️and lose fat when our blood sugar is balanced: not too high, not too low. ✳️Our pancreas creates a hormone called insulin that is released into the bloodstream to regulate blood sugar. ✳️The normal range for blood sugar is between 80 mg/ml and 120 mg/ml. ✳️Insulin is like a small ⛴ferryboat: It picks up blood sugar, then transfers it to our bloodstream and into our cells. This regulates and maintains blood sugar levels within the normal range. ✳️When we eat 🍡sugar (or other 🍞carbohydrate-rich foods that are quickly processed into blood sugar), the pancreas goes into overdrive to produce the insulin necessary for all the new blood sugar to be stored. This insulin surge tells our body that plenty of energy is available, and that it should stop burning fat and start storing it. ✳️Low blood sugar (reactive hypoglycemia) occurs when the insulin surge causes too much blood sugar to be transported out of our blood. This can leave us feeling 😔tired, hungry, weak, shaky, lightheaded, and anxious. 🆘As a result, we crave sugar and carbohydrates, thinking they will pick us back up. In reality, they start the cycle all over again. And, in the process, our body stores more fat. ❌❌❌ ✳️High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) occurs when the insulin is unable to transport enough blood sugar out of our blood. This has its own set of mast side effects like fatigue, brain fog, mood changes and sleep issues. ✳️We all eat imperfectly and put more processed sugary foods in our diets than we should. ✳️An average American eats 75 lbs of sugar yearly. What if there was something to help balance our blood sugar and could help avoid the highs and lows and side effects of unbalanced sugars? What if because you could kick your soda habit, sugar habits or just crave better foods?
It's your lucky day...#PlexusSlim will do just that.
