Amino-Acid-Packed Protein REINS in Blood Sugar

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

I bet I can tell you how almost every trip to your mainstream doctor goes.

You walk into the exam room and sit down. Then, nine times out of ten, you walk out a few minutes later clutching a little slip of paper.

Because if you have a new health complaint… or an ongoing problem that isn’t getting better… the default move for most conventional medicine docs is to write you a new prescription. And that’s especially true if you happen to be diabetic.

Folks who battle blood sugar issues know this dance all too well. Because when you can’t rein in your blood sugar… or you have related complications… out comes the prescription pad.

But what if there was an easy move you could make that would work BETTER to manage your diabetes than adding a new drug to your pillbox?

Well, it turns out there IS one. And it’s tasty too.

I’m talking about amino-acid-rich whey protein.

A new study published in the journal BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care found that people who drink a small (100ml or 3.38 fluid ounces) 15-gram shot of whey protein 10 minutes before eating a meal had significantly reduced after-meal blood sugar levels.

Specifically, the researchers found that the folks who supplemented with whey had…

  • lower blood sugar spikes
  • more balanced whole-day blood sugars
  • no major (too low) blood sugar drops

I’d LOVE to see a drug pull all of that off!

Taking whey right before a meal works because it will help you eat less and feel fuller longer. And those two benefits merge, leading to weight loss and steadier, healthier blood sugars as a result.

You can find whey protein online, in drug stores, grocery stores, and stores that sell supplements. Just make sure you pick one with 15 grams of protein.

P.S. Diabetes is often called the “silent disease” because it can sneak up on its victims unnoticed. Don’t miss these 5 signs of dangerously high blood sugar.
