South American Berry SLASHES High Blood Sugar Levels
We’ve all been there before…
You eat a good meal – and then 30 minutes later, you CRASH and feel absolutely EXHAUSTED.
That’s just one of the symptoms of blood sugar spikes.
And they’re more than an inconvenience. They can damage blood vessels and organs, and even put you on the fast track to diabetes.
But there’s a humble berry that can actually help you get these blood sugar spikes under control for good.
The only problem? Most Americans aren’t eating it.
An exciting new study has found that maqui berries can reduce blood sugar spikes – and, ultimately, protect against insulin resistance and diabetes.
Maqui berries are a South American superfood that look similar to blueberries – though they pack a much more powerful nutritional punch.
The study, published in Panminerva Medicine, split volunteers with post-meal blood sugar spikes into two groups.
One group was given 200 mg of maqui berry extract, while the other group was given a placebo.
And the differences were AMAZING.
One hour after meals, the folks given the maqui extract had average glucose levels of 98 mg/dL – a minimal and healthy increase.
The placebo group, on the other hand, saw their average glucose spike to 115 mg/dL.
And their peak glucose levels lasted a full hour longer.
What’s more? The maqui berry group had slower insulin production after an hour, while the placebo group experienced 56 percent higher insulin levels.
That, my friends, is how you avoid a dangerous diagnosis.
You see, higher insulin levels can actually cause insulin resistance where the hormone no longer regulates your blood sugar properly.
That starts a vicious cycle that can eventually lead to diabetes.
High blood sugar has even been linked to cancer, kidney and cardiovascular disease, and plaque buildup in your arteries.
If you or a loved one is struggling with blood sugar levels, insulin resistance, or even major post-meal crashes, maqui berries can help control the root cause of those issues.
