Did you know that using garlic for reducing blood sugar and maintaining it in a healthy level is efficient? This is what you will find in this post:
Today, I’m going to talk about a very dear subject to me, it’s the topic of garlic and blood sugar.
I know that most of you are going to think that garlic isn’t very efficient when it comes to diabetes and limiting its symptoms, by I completely disagree!
- The first thing you need to understand about garlic is that it’s amazing for reducing inflammations.
Yes, you cannot substitute insulin or diabetes medications when it comes to garlic and blood sugar, you need to always consult with your doctor before attempting to do anything, but garlic is really efficient when it comes to reducing high blood glucose levels while also maintaining your blood sugar in healthy levels.
However, the first and most important thing you should get from this post is the fact that garlic alone can never reduce your blood sugar to healthy levels completely!
In order to get amazing results, you need to change your diet and add better foods that are whole and unprocessed.
Indeed, most people are going to think that their blood sugar level is caused by lack of exercise!
Well, this is completely wrong; you have high blood sugar levels because you are eating foods that are saturated with proteins and most importantly, fat!
Yes, too much protein and fat is going to cause a spike in your blood sugar which is also going to cause a spike in insulin production in your body.
So, the best way for you to limit your blood sugar and to maintain it at healthy levels is to increase your whole foods consumption, for example, instead of eating meat, why don’t you enjoy potatoes, of course, with no butter and no fats.
Beans, lentils, and lots of whole grain products, especially brown rice, they are fantastic and they will reduce your blood sugar levels tremendously.
- The second thing to do is to cut down on dairy in general.
Stop believing that milk is good for you, stop thinking that you need the extra calcium in cheese and other dairy products, it’s not true, what’s better for you is to cut down on dairy, after all, you are not a calf, you don’t need milk to grow, it’s just advertisement!
- Now, let’s talk about how you can use garlic for reducing blood sugar:
It’s very efficient, and of course, you need to first change your diet before attempting to do this, because relying only on garlic is a losing battle and you are not going to get amazing results.
So, here is how to apply garlic and how to take it for reducing and maintaining your blood sugar in healthy levels.
Every day, at lunch, I want you to do this: peel two garlic cloves, mince them, and then swallow with lots of water, in the middle of your largest meal preferably.
This way, you will certainly maintain your blood sugar levels healthy all day long which is amazing for reducing diabetes symptoms, however, before attempting to do this, I highly recommend that you check with your doctor first, he or she alone can direct you on the right steps and the right medications to take or avoid, especially knowing the fact that garlic can interact with some pharmaceutical molecules, especially blood thinners, so, better check with your doctor first.
