Glucose, our body’s main source of energy, is a product of the foods you eat and is the main sugar found in your blood which is then carried to all of your body's cells for use as energy. Typically, the pancreas then releases the hormone insulin to help regulate blood sugar levels. When you eat, what you eat, and other factors cause the blood sugar levels to vary throughout the day.
According to the American Diabetes Association, there are many factors that may change your blood sugar levels.
These could include but are not limited to:
- Not enough or too much food
- Inactivity or too much physical exertion
- Hormonal changes
- And more
Healthy food choices, regular exercise and taking daily nutritional supplements may help maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range. Some of these supplements may include:
- Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
- Green Tea
- Bitter Melon
- and more
