Sugar Is More Addictive than Cocaine!
Studies show that sugar affects our brain pathways just like addictive drugs, and research on rats has found that sugar is more addictive than drugs like cocaine!
Not only sugar that food manufacturers add to their products to increase flavour or extend shelf life, but foods like refined carbohydrates (carbs) such as white rice and white bread are just as bad. These simple carbs are converted into sugar very quickly, producing a spike in blood glucose, triggering the release of hormones like insulin, cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones can be detrimental to health when their levels are imbalanced.
If you are always craving for sugar and carbs, lack of chromium may be the cause.
Our body needs chromium for its key role in processing carbohydrates and fats. This mineral helps regulate blood sugar by working with insulin to transport glucose into cells to be burned as fuel. Chromium plays a role in keeping your mood and appetite stable. It also promotes lean muscle mass and optimizes energy output.
Chromium deficiency can lead to impaired insulin function, glucose intolerance, inhibition of protein synthesis and energy production, which may lead to type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Numerous studies also show a strong association between chromium deficiency, high blood insulin, and elevated Wood cholesterol levels.
Where to Get Chromium?
Natural food sources include whole grains, bran cereals, green beans, broccoli, prunes, nuts, peanut butter and potatoes. However, it is hard to estimate exact amounts of chromium in foods because it can vary based on the minerals in the soil where they were grown. Therefore, chromium picolinate supplementation is one sure way to ensure your intake.
Supplements containing 200-1,OOOmcg chromium picolinate a day have been found to improve blood glucose control and reduce sugar and carb cravings.
Control Your Blood Sugar Levels, Naturally!
Once the body is diabetic, changes in diet alone may not be able to reverse the condition depending on the severity of insulin resistance that has developed and this can result in a life-long sentence of prolonged medication to control your blood sugar.
Prevention is better than cure. Make sure you are getting enough chromium before it is too late!
