Blood sugar management: There are ways to naturally help pre-diabetes, insulin dependence, or type II diabetes.

Sugar is one of the most addictive substances on earth.

Our bodies need sugar to function- but too much sugar is detrimental to health. Sugar both gives life and takes life. Sugar naturally occurs in fruits and vegetables. The brain and nerves have to have sugar to function properly.

Getting too much sugar increases your risk for diseases like diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease, and eye disease. Too much blood sugar increases inflammation, weight gain, and the risk for neurologic disorders like Alzheimer's and dementia.

The average person consumes 17 teaspoons of sugar per day. That’s 71 grams each day. 1 gram = 4 calories, which adds up quickly. And remember these are empty calories with little to no nutrient value. Empty calories are in things like fast food, candy, and even granola bars.

The healthy daily recommendation for sugar is 150 calories/ 38g/ 9 teaspoons per day.
