Mexican Gourd LOWERS Blood Sugar Spikes 35%

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, you’ve probably heard the same one-sided story.

Sitting in your mainstream doctor’s office and listening to him tell you the “diabetes reality”, you’d think there’s only ONE way to get control of your blood sugar…

Taking risky drugs full of awful side effects.

But, as always, nature offers a safe and effective way to stop those crazy blood sugar spikes… and help improve cholesterol levels at the same time.

This Mexican gourd could LOWER blood sugar spikes 35 percent!

And it’s a solution that anyone can do.

Most people have carved a pumpkin around Halloween time.

But what did you do with the “guts” of the pumpkin, that gooey mess that contains the seeds?

You may want to hang on to them this upcoming fall: a recent study shows that these seeds could help tame blood sugar spikes.

Researchers discovered that eating just two ounces of pumpkin seeds a day could help reduce blood sugar spikes by as much as 35 percent.

Not only did the seeds help with blood sugar control, they also decreased cholesterol levels, including LDL and triglycerides, while also improving insulin and HDL cholesterol levels.

Researchers point to the high magnesium content of the seeds for the reason they work so well at decreasing blood sugar spikes. This makes sense because many people don’t get enough magnesium, and other studies have shown that it helps with blood sugar control.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for other ways to keep your blood sugar under control, let me give you a few more tips.

Dr. Scott’s Balanced Blood Sugar Approach

  • Eat well. This means avoiding processed foods, eating good proteins, and getting generous helpings of as many veggies as you can. Staying away from sugar, grains, and starchy vegetables also helps. If you’re going to eat sugar, then do it near a meal—this slows down the absorption of sugar.
  • Exercise. Don’t feel like you have to run a marathon to be in shape. Walking, golfing, or a game of tennis can all help your body deal with sugar more effectively.
  • Inflammation. Buy some cheap “health insurance” by taking supplements that keep your inflammation low. I recommend fish oil, curcumin, or Boswellia.
  • Berberine. This herbal extract is great for the brain and also helps control blood sugar.
  • Chromium. This mineral is blood sugar balancing superstar. Talk to your doctor or a functional medicine practitioner to ensure you get the right amount.
