Chromium regulates blood sugar levels, while in insulin-dependent patients can reduce the need for medicines and insulin.
To prevent the development of diabetes, a key role plays chromium, which the body does not produce, but needs to be injected with food.
This mineral regulates blood sugar levels, while in insulin-dependent patients it may reduce the need for medicines and insulin.
People with sugar at blood border values can be prevented from becoming insulin-dependent, while those with blood sugar levels have dropped to help them return to a normal level.
Chromium is found in broccoli, meat, beers and beer, wine, barley, wheat.
Also in chicken, nuts, fruit, and mushrooms. It has been found, for example, that one cup of broccoli contains 22 micrograms of chromium, ie five times more than any other food.
The recommended daily dose is from 50 to 200 micrograms.
This should be taken into account because if overdrawn, it can cause toxicity.
We all know the sugar rush feeling after a particularly indulgent meal or beverage—a brief sensation of hyperactivity quickly followed by a sugar crash.
That bone-weary exhaustion that makes you just want to crawl in bed.
If this sounds familiar, you’ve had a glimpse into the roller coaster effect that sugar can have on our energy levels and how hard our body must work to keep it all in balance.
You see, we quite literally run on sugar—every cell and organ in our body requires glucose.
The food we eat gets broken down into glucose for ready absorption into our bloodstream and insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas.
Helps our body take glucose out of the bloodstream and put it into our cells to be converted into energy or stored for later use.
If we eat too much sugar or high-glycemic carbohydrates (think cakes, crackers, bread, and cookies), we experience a rapid influx of blood sugar.
Our body must rush in to compensate with a spike of insulin to take care of the sudden overabundance of glucose, leaving us tired and irritable from the yo-yo effect.
