Smoothies can be quite beneficial for the body, especially if you put the right foods in them. The video above shows how blended smoothies with berries can help you regulate your blood sugar levels. Instead of fruit juice, I would recommend adding coconut water, coconut milk, or home-made hemp milk into your smoothies.
Why is Controlling Blood Sugar Important?
A healthy blood sugar level is important to the body’s overall function. It affects how much energy is available for the body to use. As well, the brain works normally when our blood sugar is within a certain range.
When our blood sugar is not maintained within an acceptable range, it is possible to develop long-term complications. These include kidney problems, cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, cerebrovascular disease such as stroke, and eye disease.
