Eight Best Foods and Supplements to Control Type-Two Diabetes

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 3:18:20 AM America/New_York

Eat a healthy breakfast in the morning, check. Do your daily exercises, check. Test your blood sugar, check. Take your medication, check, check, check. Living with diabetes can be exhausting. Very rarely can a diabetic drop the ball. Their body depends on them to keep them as healthy and as level as possible.

Diabetes affects millions of people, 29.1 million in the United States alone, according to a Healthline article, over eight million of them are undiagnosed. Type-two diabetes is the most prevalent form of diabetes and continues to rise. While type-two diabetes can be prevented, we have listed the eight best supplements and natural ways to control your type-two diabetes.


 A spoonful of cinnamon helps the sugar go down! Well actually it helps your blood sugar levels go down. If cinnamon or cinnamon extract is taken daily, your cells become sensitized to insulin. This allows cells to convert sugars into energy easier and keep your lower levels of sugars.

 Green Tea

The antioxidant EGCG found in green tea stabilizes blood sugar levels by keeping blood vessels flexible. EGCG also prevents the sharp rise in meals, especially after consuming carbohydrates.  Green tea has endless health benefits and is shown to be effective in areas were diabetics may need help, like blood sugar levels and weight loss.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

This supplement will aid in the body’s absorption of sugars while slowing down the process as well, this essentially will decrease appetite and cravings. Chia seeds are another option for an Omega-3 Fatty Acid. They have calcium, phosphorus, manganese and are great for heart health.

Vitamin C

Diabetics tend to have lower levels of vitamin C in their body, so it is a good idea to equalize their levels by consuming more vitamin C than normal. This vitamin also stops sugar attachment to lipid proteins, which has caused some diabetic complications in patients. Berries, citrus fruits, peppers, tomatoes and some dark-green leafy vegetables are a good source of vitamin C.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

A small study conducted in 2007 with type-two diabetes patients showed that those who took two tablespoons of ACV before bed lowered their sugar levels in the morning up to six percent. ACV can be diluted with water and consumed as a drink. The same vinegar has been shown to trim belly fat, revitalize damaged hair and skin and reduce cholesterol.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is a good substitute for vegetable oil and also has another effect on the body. It contains Omega 9 and Omega 3, these maintain good blood flow through the body. Oil does not contain carbohydrates so it keeps from raising blood glucose levels as well.

Green Vegetables

Mama always said to eat your greens and boy was she right. There are many benefits to doing so, but in the diabetic area greens can increase insulin sensitivity and help regulate blood sugar levels. Among a huge list of qualified greens you will find best results in lettuce, cabbage, spinach, green beans, artichokes and asparagus.

Red Apples

A study conducted in Finland found diabetic men who ate foods high in quercetin has 20 percent less diabetic deaths as well as fewer heart complications. Red apples, red grapes, tomatoes, onions, green vegetables and berries are a good source of quercetin.

Each of these natural ways help control side-effects from diabetes and blood glucose levels. They will affect each individual differently, so it’s recommended to try out each method and see what works best for you. Adding these foods and supplements to your diabetes checklist may not be something you want to do, but will have a significant impact in the long run and also improve your daily quality of life, which may be worth it. These natural foods and supplements have a number of health benefits for diabetics, but are also important to consume for those living without diabetes. These methods could prevent diabetes from developing in the future for you and could take you off the pre-diabetes list if you are already on it. It is simple, you are what you eat. The better you eat, the better your health will be, so start making the right decisions now.

Metabolism Type and How to Activate it Naturally

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 3:11:33 AM America/New_York

Like people, there are metabolisms of many types. Ever notice how your friend Jane can eat all sorts of junk food and stay slim, while if you ate the same food you would gain weight, your mood would change and your stress and anxiety levels might fluctuate?  Jane says “Your metabolism is slower, that’s all.” Well that could be, but a better answer is you have a different metabolism type. According to an article found on the Dr. Oz Show website, each metabolism is affected by food, individual activity and lifestyle differently. It’s important to eat and exercise in favor of your specific metabolism type to control your weight, stress and anxiety levels.


The three generic metabolism types are A, B and C listed below. The metabolism type is determined by the types of food you crave, your body’s general feeling; fatigue, aches and pains, anxiety, etc. and your personality type.


TYPE A: Potato Chip Lover

This type of metabolism has a strong appetite and generally craves salty foods. Occasionally they may find themselves feeling anxious or fatigued. They tend to be talkative and outgoing people, all of this is because of the foods they give their metabolism.


TYPE B: Glazed Donut Lover

With this metabolism, the body is craving healthy carbs. Many times your body translates that into sugar cravings instead. Usually this type has a weak appetite and is dependent on caffeine to get through the day. They struggle with weight and have a sensitive and stressed-out personality, but are generally an organized person.


TYPE C: Anything Lover

The final type of metabolism is a mixture of A and B. Type C’s crave sweet and salty food. Their appetite fluctuates and they have a slight problem with weight control. They feel fatigue anxious and nervous and may suffer with aches and pains in their body.


The metabolism types listed above are summarized from Dr. Oz article Eat Right for Your Metabolism Type, more information of the metabolism types can be found at the corresponding link below, with tips on how to eat for your metabolism type.


Whether your metabolism is A, B, C or neither, your metabolism can be fast or slow. What this means is that if you and Jane have the same metabolism type and eat the same foods Jane’s metabolism might convert the calories into energy and burn fat faster than your metabolism. Some people say that slow metabolisms are the reason for their excess weight, but this isn’t true. A majority of the time the excess weight exists because they aren’t eating the correct food for their metabolism type. People can increase their metabolism through a number of ways through the foods they eat and their daily lifestyles. Increasing your metabolism helps your body burn more calories, replace fat with muscle and increase your daily energy levels, which can bring your metabolism up to the speed of Jane’s. There are many ways to activate or speed up your metabolism. The more effective ways to naturally activate your metabolisms are water, lean meats, green tea, spicy foods, cardio intervals and strength training exercises.


Drinking more water a day is important for your diet and your metabolism. It is such a simple thing to do with countless proven benefits, but is often neglected. Water helps your metabolism because it keeps it active. By drinking eight to 12 glasses of water a day, your metabolism is constantly active even when you’re at rest. According to a Popsugar article, a study done at the University of Utah supports this claim. Along with your glass of water, eating lean meats can boost your metabolisms too.


Lean meats are a great way to get the calories burned. The little extra energy it takes to eat chicken and other healthy proteins can help burn calories and build muscles to burn fats. They also take longer to digest which helps you feel full longer.


Green tea seems to be the cure-all and end-all when it comes to weight loss. In a study published in the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition drinking about 4 glasses of green tea a day shed the pounds in a matter of weeks. Drinking green tea before bed is also a good way to burn fat while you are sleeping and decrease your morning appetite. More about this subject can be found at our article, Drink This to Win the War on Fat.


Turning up the heat in the kitchen will spice up your metabolism. Cayenne pepper, ginger, jalapeños, cinnamon and spicy mustard all give your metabolism the extra kick to burn fat. Some spicy mustards can boost your metabolism up to 25 percent because they increase the production of fat-burning hormones.


Lastly, the type of daily exercises you do can affect your metabolism greatly. Cardio interval workouts and strength training are the best for your metabolism. Cardio workouts combined with intervals of high intensity training keeps your muscles working harder through the different levels of exercise, according to a study done at Colorado State University. Between intervals make sure your body has enough time to recover so injuries don’t occur. Strength training is another way to build muscle fast which ultimately burns fat fast. It also compensates for muscle loss that comes with aging which is one of the main reasons why metabolism slows with age, according to an article from the Mayo Clinic. Building muscle is a key factor to activating your metabolism and weight loss.


There are many steps to boost your metabolism so you can get the body, energy levels and muscle tone it seems everyone else has except for you. The first step is figuring out your metabolism type. If you don’t figure this out, your efforts may be targeted in the wrong area. After you find your type, figure out what foods will make your metabolism happy and then give it the extra boost with these five natural ways to get your metabolism active, your body healthy, and your energy up.

Drink this to Win the War on Fat

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 3:00:50 AM America/New_York

We have all heard the old wives’ tale to drink a glass of warm milk before bed if your ghosts are keeping you up at night. Whether or not this works for you, it may be doing something unexpected. What the wives didn't know at the time, was drinking milk before bed does more than make you rest easier, it actually makes your dreams come true. Well, one dream in particular, to burn body fat while you are sleeping. Now, I know this seems like another wives tale but it’s true, I’ll prove it.

According to the Huffington Post, there is a particular protein found in most dairy products, the casein protein that works the magic. This little miracle is a slow-digesting protein, which means it takes about six to seven hours to digest. If you are lucky enough to get that amount of sleep, you could drink a glass of milk and wake up a tiny bit thinner and a lot happier. The science of it all is simple. While you’re dreaming of your next vacation, your body is hard at work digesting this protein for hours, burning calories and increasing your metabolic rate. Because your metabolism is active throughout the night, when you wake in the morning your body is energetic and your hunger is kept at bay. There are other benefits to the casein protein as well.

Not only is the casein protein working your metabolism, but also it has an effect on your muscles. The protein provides amino acids to your muscles throughout the digesting time, six to seven hours, which repairs and strengthens muscles to help burn fat. The more muscles you have, the more calories are burned throughout your daily activities.

Consuming a food or drink with casein protein, such as milk or cottage cheese, can fine-tune your body’s appearance while you’re sleeping. This method has been proven effective in two cases, a Dutch study and a case at Maastricht University, according to the Huffington Post. But what if you can’t drink milk or eat dairy? That’s fine, there are other ways to achieve the same results.

Green tea or green tea extract works too. A major component in green tea is a flavonoid called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This component has major health benefits, including boosting metabolism rate and burning fat. EGCG can be consumed either by drinking green tea or green tea extract or by taking an EGCG supplement. Its effects are similar to the casein protein, because it boosts your metabolism, burns fat and decreases appetite, according to research found in an Intelligent Medicine article. A study conducted at the University of Chicago’s Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research noticed that rats lost just over 20 percent of their body weight when injected with EGCG daily and ate 60 percent less then they did without the injections. So if your body disagrees with dairy, you can still lose weight and curb your appetite with green tea or EGCG supplements. The casein protein and EGCG flavonoids are strong weapons to fight the war on fat, but they are even stronger when you get a full-nights rest.

The amount of sleep you obtain has a significant effect on the presence of two important hormones, leptin and gherlin. Both of these hormones target your appetite and the way your body handles energy. Leptin regulates energy levels and reduces the cravings to eat, while gherlin does the opposite. A study found in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that people who received more sleep had higher levels of Leptin in their system and ultimately weighed less than people who slept less.

Each of these methods will work on their own, but there is strength in numbers. Let’s say you had a bowl of cottage cheese with a cup of green tea. You lay down at 8:30 PM and fell asleep at 9:00 PM every night for a month.  By doing this, you would burn more fat through the night, have more energy in the morning and less food cravings through the day than if you only did one of the methods for a month. If you arm your body with the correct weapons like a full night of rest, casein proteins from a dairy product and EGCG flavonoids from green tea, you can win the war on fat and find a slimmer, stronger you while you are sleeping.
