An alarming growing number of people worldwide are becoming less sensitive to insulin, the hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. Elevated blood sugar levels over a prolong period of time, can lead to a cascade of chronic health issues, including nerve damage, vision problems, cardiovascular disease, kidney problems, poor circulation, and diabetes. Increasingly sedentary lifestyles, obesity, and diets rich in refined carbohydrates contribute to elevated blood sugar levels. While healthy lifestyle and diet are key factors, several nutrients are known to be exceptionally effective in supporting healthy blood sugar levels and protecting cells from the damaging effects of oxidation and glycation. Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels as we age is critical to promoting good health.
