Sometimes we wonder if we sound like a broken record to our clients here at EnergyFirst. Why? Because we always stress the importance of stable blood sugar levels.
When your blood sugar remains stable, the release of insulin is under better control. This helps you prevent cravings, sleepiness, and moody behaviors. It is also critical to getting and staying lean because it helps you burn fat efficiently. It also guarantees you will feel physically and mentally energized.
Our EnergyFirst Protein Shakes provide all the nutrients your body needs for optimal energy and health. One shake will keep you energized for at least 4-6 hours because of its blood sugar-stabilizing effect.
Recent research has shown another great benefit of keeping your blood sugar levels under tight control. A study published in the journal Neurology found that higher blood sugar levels can increase the risk of memory problems.
The participants that had lower blood sugar levels scored better on different types of memory tests. Also, the hippocampus, a part of the brain that plays a major role in memory, was larger in people with lower blood sugar levels.
Is this only relevant to people who have diabetes? No, the study did not include people who have diabetes or pre-diabetes, people who were overweight, people who were diagnosed with memory or cognitive problems, and people who drank more than 3.5 servings of alcohol a day. This suggests that high blood sugar levels can impair memory in the absence of diabetes, weight problems, excessive alcohol drinking, and diagnosed memory or thinking problems.
Clearly, a stable blood sugar level is a protective strategy against memory decline.
