Regardless of what eating style you follow or what your body is going through, unstable blood sugar levels often worsen symptoms and can cause continued health issues.
If blood sugar is unregulated and unstable, over time it can cause a depletion in our body’s nutrients, negatively affect the gut, increase stress on our body, and affect our hormonal responses.
Thankfully, proper nutrition, such as adding in Nature's Hydration daily, is a great way to support stable blood sugar levels.
So, here are some top tips for regulating blood sugar from Registered Dietitian Nicole Legler:
1. Don’t Skip Meals or Snacks
Make sure you stick to a consistent fueling routine, eating meals and snacks around the same time each day.
Spread out your carbohydrate intake evenly through the day to keep your blood sugar stable.
2. Have Balanced Meals
Create your plate by filling ½ of it with non starchy vegetables and a serving of fruit, ¼ with lean protein and ¼ with whole grains or
starchy vegetables such as potatoes. Also, add in healthy fats such as nuts and nut butter, seeds, avocado, or olive oil.
3. Snack Smartly
Make sure your snacks contain both a carbohydrate, ideally from a fruit or vegetable, and a protein.
This will help keep your blood sugar stable and keep you satisfied between meals.
You could pair Nature's Hydration with an apple and peanut butter, greek yogurt parfait, or tuna cucumber bites.
4. Fuel with Fiber
Fiber helps to regulate blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of sugar. Fiber is found in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, seeds and nuts.
Each Tiiga stick pack has 3 grams of fiber, helping you to stabilize blood sugar while enjoying a tasty drink.
5. Consume a Diet Rich in Antioxidants:
Plant antioxidants (called polyphenols) protect your body against harmful free radicals and may help to regulate blood sugar.
Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables, spices, and herbs. Baobab has been found to be rich in antioxidants
and some research shows its potential in regulating blood sugar.
At Tiiga, our mission is to provide a drink option that supports your health and wellness.
Our formula is designed to provide you with real fruit, fiber and antioxidants.
To help support stabilizing blood sugar we use baobab as our first ingredient, which has been discovered to have unique nutritional benefits.
