Keeping Diabetes at Bay
Timeless Fitness Tip
In a recent study, among more than 500 overweight people with impaired glucose tolerance (high blood sugar levels), the risks of diabetes over four years was about half as high in those who were counseled (and participated in) every two or three months to lose weight, exercise and eat less fat and more fiber.
It did not take much exercise either, and the average person lost only eight pounds but that shed poundage made a difference.
In addition, exercising only four hours in a week cut the risk of diabetes even in people who did not lose a pound.
What to Do
Exercise (any is better than none) and a healthy diet are for everyone but especially for people with elevated blood sugar levels, too much weight or a family history of diabetes.
Consider Chia Seed
Digestive Health Organic Chia Seed creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.
In addition to the obvious benefits for diabetics, this slowing in the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar offers the ability for creating endurance. Carbohydrates are the fuel for energy in our bodies.
The human body is able to digest chia seed easily. Chia seeds are able to absorb more than 7 times their weight in water, and form a thick gel with the result being a slow release of carbohydrates facilitating an equally slow conversion of carbohydrates into glucose (blood sugar) for energy.
