experience sudden fluctuations. And instead have a much smoother curve. Which leaves you overall feeling more vibrant and far more in control.
4. Healthier Heart
Now your body is off enjoying it’s sugar high … there is often a lot left over that doesn’t get used as energy. These leftovers are converted into fatty acids, that in turn become triglycerides. Triglycerides are a type of fat that circulates in your blood. And which organ pumps our blood?
High levels of triglycerides increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. If you are looking to reduce your risk of cardiovascular problems reducing your sugar intake should be your first step!
5. Improved (or stable) moods.
Now we are coming down off our sugar high from all that chocolate. Our blood sugar levels are crashing, and so is our mood. Your blood sugar impacts hormones in your body, and this interaction can worsen disorders like depression and anxiety.
Now it may be a stretch to say sugar directly causes these issues but it definitely can cause them to worsen. Diets high in sugar impact the bodies ability to properly cope with stress which means you are more likely to suffer from anxiety like symptoms.
Reducing your sugar intake not only helps improve energy levels, but can also help you resist stress and the triggers for depression and anxiety.
