If you have trouble regulating your blood sugar and you would like to lower it, there are fortunately some effective steps that you can take. High blood sugar can easily be reduced. With just a little willingness and effort on your part and a few proven tips and tricks up your sleeve, you will be able to lower your blood sugar naturally and, avoid more serious health problems.
An easy way to lower blood sugar is to exercise for 20 to 30 minutes every day. When you exercise, your body turns stored sugar into energy and this helps keep your blood levels low.
Brisk walking, running, or biking, are just a few examples of the physical activities you could do without going to the gym.
Eating smaller amounts of food more frequently will give you more energy and help you avoid blood sugar spikes. It is a good way to keep your sugar levels stable.
High-glycemic foods, such as potatoes, rice, and white bread, are quickly digested by the body and rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, They raise your blood sugar levels quickly.
Low-glycemic foods, such as high fiber fruits, oatmeal, cauliflower, peanuts, spinach, tomatoes, beans, peas, granola, etc, are digested more slowly and they do not cause blood-glucose levels to spike.
Refined or bad carbohydrates, such as rice, white bread, cakes, soda, jams, cookies or pasta are bad and they can considerably affect your blood sugar since your body turns them into glucose very rapidly.
Eating good or complex carbohydrates, such as fruits and vegetables, will help keep your blood sugar level stable.
Fiber is found in fruits and vegetables and it prevents blood sugar from rising too rapidly after a meal. Some beneficial sources of fiber are chia seeds, psyllium, flaxseed, beans, oatmeal, Brussels sprouts, carrots, pears, oranges, grapefruit, and peanuts.
Taking natural dietary supplements is also a very good way to lower your blood sugar and keep it at healthy levels.
Salacia oblonga, Gymnema Sylvestre, fenugreek powder, ginseng, pumpkin extract, bilberry, bitter melon, cinnamon, and minerals such as chromium, zinc, magnesium, and vanadium, are some of the best dietary supplements to lower high sugar levels.
