Here are 5 of our favourite ingredients to say goodbye uncontrollable sweet tooth and hello boosted metabolism!

Cinnamon 

The magical spice! Cinnamon helps to regulate glucose levels and improves resistance to insulin. What is insulin? It’s a hormone made in the pancreas that controls the amount of sugar in our blood. 

Gymnema

Did you know that Gymnema has a beneficial impact on the maintenance of blood sugar levels, stabilises sugar cravings and supports your pancreas? This herbal extract is used in supplements to support weight balance and healthy cholesterol levels. It also helps slow down glucose absorption, which means you won’t experience that spike in blood sugar levels. 

Chromium

Chromium is an essential nutrient needed for metabolising sugar and fats. It helps improve blood glucose, insulin and lipid levels in the blood. Eating a diet that is predominantly high in sugar can create stress in the body and can actually result in lower levels of Chromium. This coupled with a low dietary intake, may lead to a deficiency.

Magnesium

Our bodies require Magnesium to produce insulin. This precious insulin is vital for regulating our blood sugar levels. Oh Mg!

Zinc

Zinc is an antioxidant that helps to reduce free radicals formed in the body. It assists the body to metabolise glucose, proteins and carbohydrates, which ultimately supports healthy blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar levels are stable, you may notice that cravings reduce and are less intense.
