If you could control blood sugar levels as simply as adding a mushroom to your diet, would you be interested?
According to some information I found while researching another subject, you can change the way you think about blood sugar forever. Researchers say Adiponectin is nature’s secret to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and the mushroom Agaricus blazei contains high percentages of the substance. Can you bring your blood sugar back to normal with adiponectin? Following is what I found.
Keep in mind you’ll never hear or read this information from conventional sources or others that have ties to, or receive money for research from, pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Information about real people, not rats, mice or in a test tube, have shown that you can begin reaping benefits in as little as one week. Some of the information stated: you can eat whatever you like (with the exception of junk food and high sugar fake foods) and you can eliminate mood swings. But, one of the problems for many people is, you have to limit the amount of food you eat to reasonable levels.
It’s been known for years that adiponectin promotes normal blood sugar levels by helping your body use insulin efficiently. Until recently, scientists didn’t realize just how important adiponectin was in the insulin cycle and they had no idea how to increase it.
The first research avenue was pharmaceuticals, since big money revolves around what can be patented. That research found pills and injections didn’t work and nether did diet and exercise. At which point the research was bagged by big money interests. But, a small research group found the mushroom Agaricus blazei to be the secret. Being natural and unpatentable, the research information never made mainstream
The mushroom has been used for centuries by natural healers for stress relief, boosting the immune system and helping to control cholesterol levels. But, no one had ever tested it for controlling blood sugar levels.
The very first study on Agaricus and glucose metabolism occurred about two years ago. As one researcher stated, “The results of the trial were so stunning that I’ll bet scientists everywhere are kicking themselves for not testing it sooner.”
Researchers found the mushroom boosts adiponectin levels, and more adiponectin means your body can clear sugar from your blood more quickly and efficiently. Which translates to: plenty of energy to get through the day, nasty mood swings that always seem to happen at the worst possible time being an unpleasant memory and having complete blood sugar control.
According to the information I found, adiponectin is complimented synergistically by biotin and chromium. The combination not only makes it possible to control blood sugar levels but also experience thicker, more lustrous hair, glowing skin and strong, healthy nails.
Biotin has been used in cosmetics for years to improve hair, skin and nails and in supplements for glucose metabolism. Worldwide research has found biotin increases ACC and PC, two glucose metabolizing enzymes, and to improve the body’s ability to use glucose without effecting insulin levels. Researchers found, over fifty years ago, that chromium could reverse impaired glucose metabolism.
Biotin and chromium are crucial micro-nutrients for burning protein, carbs, and fat. They help you utilize foods for energy, instead of storing it in your midsection or on your hips and thighs.
If you suffer from the afternoon blahs and resort to caffeine fixes, it might prove beneficial to investigate natural ways to solve the problem.
I found a supplement that contains all three but, since I’ve never tried it and prefer to do things more naturally, I can only suggest the reader do an Internet search using all three ingredients and make your own judgments. You might also try a search using Dr. William Douglass MD. I believe I’ve seen adiponectin information in his newsletter. His name is spelled with two S’s.
I’ve heard for years that people who eat a lot of sugar are more likely to be victims of mosquito bites. Observing what most people eat, I would tend to believe that as fact EXCEPT, mosquitoes seek me out. Our yearly sugar consumption can fit in a half cup measure and we don’t keep sugar in the house.
Recently, I found four recent research papers that didn’t even list sugar consumption in the top factors.
Number one was blood type, type O to be specific. Bingo…I’m type O. Carbon dioxide in the breath, body temperature and being pregnant were factors in all research. Pregnant women exhale 21 percent more carbon dioxide and are on average 1.26 degrees Fahrenheit warmer around the belly due to the temperature of amniotic fluid. Alcohol and odorant markers based on blood type rounded out the top possibilities.
Alcohol can change the blood odorant markers as can diet, which takes us back to sugar. Depending on the research funding sources, sugar may play a larger role than shown since, alcohol is a sugar and sugar is in almost every commercial food process.
