Why you need to stabilise your blood sugar
Did you know that 90% of us are suffering from excess glucose in our system, yet most of us are unaware of it?
- The Glucose Goddess
At Avea, we want you to be fully aware of the dangers of glucose spikes. These sharp fluctuations in blood sugar are caused by diets high in carbs and sugars, but also become more common as we age.
As a result of glucose spikes, our cells lose their ability to process glucose efficiently. It might shock you, but glucose spikes are the actual root cause of many diseases!
If you want to dramatically improve your life and keep away from illnesses, discover why you should immediately start balancing your blood sugar to avoid glucose spikes.
Glucose - Our Main Source of Energy
Our cells need energy to survive. While plants can generate energy from photosynthesis, most of our body's glucose come from our diet.
Fact: Every second, your body burns about 8 billion, billion molecules of glucose.
Carbohydrate is an umbrella term for starch, fibre, and sugars, including glucose, fructose and sucrose.
Starchy foods include beets, potatoes, carrots, yams - usually roots, or even seeds, including rice, corn, oatmeal, peas, lentils, and beans. On the other hand, trunks, branches and leaves contain the most fibre. Fruits are usually high in fructose which is also responsible for their irresistible taste. Sucrose is the scientific name of your table sugar.
How Your Body Processes Glucose
As you eat, your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin to carry the sugars through your bloodstream into your cells for energy production. Insulin production declines once blood-glucose levels reach fasting levels again.
Too Much of a Good Thing Is a Bad Thing
An excess of glucose intake results in glucose spikes, which are sharp rises and falls in blood-glucose levels.
This triggers the pancreas to release more insulin to counter the excess glucose. The more glucose spikes and insulin levels, the worse your overall health will be.
How Glucose Spikes Affect Your Health
1. Constant Hunger and Cravings
With more glucose spikes, more insulin is produced.
Ghrelin - our hunger hormone - takes over, whilst Leptin - the hormone that tells us we are full – is deactivated.
We feel constantly hungry and crave more high-calorie foods .
We start gaining weight.
The more weight we put on, the hungrier we get, and a vicious cycle takes over.
2. Chronic Fatigue
The mitochondria uses glucose and oxygen to create a chemical version of electricity to give each cell the power they need to execute their distinct functions.
When it is overloaded with glucose molecules, the mitochondria becomes dysfunctional. Cells starve due to lack of energy and we constantly feel tired .
Solution: Flatten your glucose curves to decrease your insulin levels, cravings, chronic fatigue, and much more.
Natural leaf extracts like White Mulberry Leaf have been shown to reduce absorption of sugars by around 40% in humans.
The Avea Stabiliser is a revolutionary blood sugar stabilising formula consisting of the White Mulberry Leaf extract with 2 other natural ingredients that work in synergy to reduce glucose spikes, boost metabolism, heart health and weight loss.
Other short-term effects of glucose spikes include:
Poor sleep quality
Hot flushes and night sweats
Memory and cognitive function issues
Type II Diabetes
An impaired immune system
Fact: A recent study showed that people with elevated glucose levels are more likely to die from Covid-19 than those with normal glucose levels (41% vs. 16%).
When our cells die, part of us disappear; our bones waste away, our immune system becomes weak, our heart pumps blood less efficiently, and brain diseases start appearing.
In the long run, glucose spikes result in oxidative stress, inflammation and glycation - the predominant causes of ageing and cell death.
3. Oxidative Stress and Inflammation
Oxidative stress is a trigger for
Type II diabetes
neuroinflammation and cognitive dysfunction, including Alzheimer’s and dementia.
It leads to the formation of free radicals, which are harmful molecules that destroy everything they touch.
Fact: Alzheimer’s and glucose levels are so closely connected that it is sometimes called Type III Diabetes or Diabetes of the brain. People with diabetes are 4x more likely to develop Alzheimer’s.
Acne and Skin conditions
Starchy and sugary foods set off a chain reaction that results in acne and red skin. It’s not only the dairy products .
Wrinkles and Cataracts
Free radicals also destroy collagen, leading to saggy skin and wrinkles, inflammation in joints, rheumatoid arthritis, degradation of cartilage and osteoporosis (brittle bones).
Glycation also occurs in our eyes where the damaged molecules start clumping with each other, leading to cataracts [4,5].
Scientific studies demonstrated how repeated glucose spikes can also result in:
Depressive episodes like mood swings
Gut Issues like leaky gut syndrome, food allergies, and autoimmune diseases
Infertility and PCOS
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
Fact: ¼ people around the world have NAFLD, which can lead to liver failure or cancer.
Flattening your glucose curves is a great way to reduce the risks of acute and chronic diseases by significantly decreasing your:
amount of free radicals
oxidative stress and inflammation
