12 Signs You Are Eating Too Much Sugar
Most of us think that only people with diabetes have high blood sugar levels. That isn't necessarily true. Anyone can suffer from this and they will likely not notice the harm being done to nerves, blood vessels and organs as a result of this condition.
To prevent complications, you should be aware of the major symptoms that could indicate you are eating too much sugar.
Symptom number one is constant hunger. You’ve just eaten lunch and perhaps even dessert, but still you look for more food. That is probably a sign you are eating eat too much sugar.
High blood sugar prevents glucose from entering your cells and as a result your body is not getting the energy it needs and asks for food again and again. It’s a vicious circle. Try cutting off creamy desserts, carbonated drinks and don't put sugar in your tea or coffee. Eliminate sugar from your diet and you'll see results very soon.
Symptom number two is increased fatigue. Are you familiar with this feeling? Before you even get out of bed, or perhaps you’re out of bed and you're not quite awake yet and you already feel tired. There’s a simple explanation for this. When your blood sugar level is elevated, your body can't store and absorb glucose properly. Energy is used inefficiently and your body’s cells don't receive the fuel they need. That’s why you often feel tired for no reason.
It you simply can't cut sugar all at once, at least replace it with honey and we are talking about using a small spoon, not a whole jar.
Symptom number three is frequent urination. When your blood sugar is too high, your kidneys cannot reabsorb fluid, so your body attempts to bring the concentration of glucose to normal by diluting your blood with intracellular fluid. This results in frequent urination. In other words you run to the bathroom almost every five minutes. The only way to stop this annoying situation is to say no to sugar, candies, ice cream, muffins and other sweets you love. At least give it a try.
Symptom number four is dry mouth or excessive thirst. A dry mouth and thirst are responses to severe fluid loss. Your hypothalamus causes you to be thirsty by sending a signal to your brain. Of course, when that happens you are typically going to drink something. The problem is that most people are consuming beverages that are dehydrating, rather than hydrating. Replace your sweet drinks with water and if you want the water to get inside of your cells, add some ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops to your drinking water.
Avoid drinking juice drinks. A lot of junk foods and drinks are dressed up to look like something healthy when they are just the opposite. Juice drinks contain a lot of sugar. If you don't like the taste of plain water, add a piece of lemon, or some mint or perhaps some organic strawberry slices to your glass. This simple trick will make your water more appealing.
Symptom number five is sudden weight loss. If you happen to lose weight within a short period even though your meals contain a lot of calories, this could indicate high glucose levels in your blood. Here is why this can happen. Fluid loss leads to dehydration in your body, which obviously results in weight loss. If your insulin level is insufficient to metabolize all of the glucose in your blood, your body will start burning fat faster in order to produce energy. A large amount of urine when glucose levels are high makes your body spend a lot of calories. In this way your body tries to dump the excess glucose. This is not a healthy situation. In short, raising glucose levels leads to fluid loss and dehydration.
Symptom number six is infectious diseases. Urinary tract infections and yeast infections can occur in both men and women, however they occur more often in women with high sugar levels and diabetes. A significant amount of sugar creates a favorable environment for yeast and bacteria growth. Want to prevent UTIs and other infections? Eat as little sugar as possible and better if you can cut it out altogether. Try doing it for a week, then for a month and so on. This will result in a natural and healthy change of eating habits without stress.
Symptom number seven is dry skin. Did you know that dry skin is connected to high blood sugar levels? Here are the reasons. Excessive urination dehydrates your body to such an extent that your skin begins to dry out. Skin problems on your legs are a sign of narrowing of the arteries and poor blood circulation. High blood sugar also damages the nerves, disrupting the normal function of the sweat glands, which also affects the moisture levels of your skin.
Symptom number eight is difficulty concentrating. We all know the phrase that our brains need sugar for better work, however high blood sugar actually prevents glucose from entering your brain cells. This results in reduced energy inside your brain, which reduces the speed of thinking and decision making.
Symptom number nine is blurred vision. Blurred vision is often caused by dehydration of the eyes due to high blood sugar. Dehydrated cells lose their shape and become deformed, resulting in the inability of your eyes to focus properly.
Symptom number ten is slow healing of cuts and wounds. Have you noticed that your cuts and wounds are healing slower than usual? That can be due to vascular damage caused by high sugar levels, which leads to poor blood circulation, especially in your limbs, which in turn causes insufficient nutrition to the extremities of your body.
Symptom number eleven is Impotence. Difficulties maintaining an erection can be caused by high blood glucose. A normal erection requires healthy nerves, good blood flow and proper balance of hormones. An excess of sugar in your blood can affect each of these systems.
Symptom number twelve is irritability. According to research, people with high blood sugar are more anxious. The brain depends on a level supply of glucose and abrupt changes in this level affects the brain negatively. As a result your mood suddenly gets worse. Sugar also affects the absorption of another nutrient responsible for mood and that is the mineral chromium. Chromium is needed to maintain proper insulin levels. Insulin is the hormone that removes excess glucose from the blood. Lack of insulin is a condition called Diabetes.
So what can be done to alleviate some of these symptoms?
First is to get well hydrated. I personally add 6 drops of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops to a gallon of distilled water and try to drink 2-4 liters per day. That is going to help dilute the sugar in the blood, make the blood flow better through the blood vessels, improving circulation and of course it will help carry more nutrients to the extremities of your body.
Sugar and or carbohydrate craving is a sign that you have an overgrowth of Candida.
The signs: You can't get through the day without bread or sugar.
Some of the causes: You have had more than your fair share of antibiotics or antacids, which could have triggered an overgrowth of bad bacteria.
Antibiotics kill "good" bacteria in the gut, while antacids neutralize the stomach acid that normally tackles bad bacteria. Yeast feeds on sugar. It triggers cravings for sugar and bread because the body quickly converts these to glucose.
Eating sugar makes the yeast multiply, thus intensifying cravings and creating a vicious cycle. Steroids and stress, which increase your body's secretion of the hormone cortisol, can suppress your immune system, allowing yeast to run wild, making sugar cravings constant.
The solution: Cut back on all forms of sugar, flour products, canned fruits and caffeine. Take ShopFreeMart Activate to kill off excess candida and to increase the number of good bacteria in the gut.
ShopFreeMart Sugar-D can help normalize blood sugar levels. It provides the important minerals chromium and vanadium which are both important in regulating insulin and blood sugar. Sugar-D can also reduce the food cravings and make you feel more satisfied if taken with a glass of water at least 1/2 hour before a meal.
ShopFreeMart PureCopper can help increase energy levels. Copper is essential for the synthesis of ATP, which is the main source of energy for the body. Copper also strengthens the veins and capillaries which improves circulation and helps prevent weakness of the eyes. Copper is also the mineral to take that helps wounds heal more quickly. Copper is also needed for sugar metabolism.
If you are diabetic or on your way to becoming diabetic, magnesium is one of the most important minerals you can take. Lack of magnesium actually causes diabetes. ShopFreeMart PureMag crosses the blood-brain barrier, which can help improve concentration and brain function, whereas many of the popular brands do not, so PureMag is effective at getting to the remotest parts of your body.
Siaga supports clean blood, healthy blood sugar levels and the removal of toxins from the cells. This can help wounds to heal faster. Siaga also promotes oxygenation of the blood and increases availability of nutrients to the cells, which is the foundation of good health.
ShopFreeMart Vitalize helps improve sugar metabolism, energy, sleep, muscle strength and overall repair of damaged cells. It also helps improve libido. I was talking with one of our members recently who is 70 years old. His wife is 25 years younger than he is and he told me that she really loves our Vitalize product. I asked him to tell me more and he told me that she had not started taking Vitalize yet herself, but that his libido has gone through the roof, which makes her very happy. She now tells him, you are still 70 years old from the neck up, but now you are 45 years old from the neck down.
ShopFreeMart PureSilver can help keep bacteria levels under control that cause urinary tract infections and other infections as well.
ShopFreeMart Natures Nutrients is pure bovine colostrum is also one of the best products to help restore the gut. It has over 700 natural nutrients that benefit all functions of the body. In fact all of the ShopFreeMart products have their place. Some of them you should not miss a day without taking them. Others may greatly improve some of your functions by taking them only 2-3 times a week.
So spend some time getting to know all of the products and some of the symptoms that may show up when they nutrients are lacking and then you will be able to take control of your own health and you may never need to see a doctor unless you have a serious accident or something like that.
