Fiber Sweet Made Good: Why You Should Choose Glucopro®

For content creator Ninong Ry, food is definitely life. With his relatable personality, witty humor, and insightful cooking expertise, it’s not hard to see why he has become such a well-loved content creator across TikTok, Youtube, and Instagram.

He’s not afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to food, constantly finding new ways to use ingredients people are familiar with, sometimes even while on a budget.

However, too much of the good stuff (see: fried, oily, fatty, salty, and sweet food) can be bad for you as it can lead to health issues like high blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

This is something Ninong Ry, a diagnosed diabetic, knows all too well. Because of his health, his doctor recommended that he eat less fatty and sweet food. And so began Ninong Ry’s journey as an ex-bad boy (at least when it came to his diet).

Aside from changes to his diet, Ninong Ry has since added drinking Glucopro® in his daily routine to help him reach his daily fiber needs.

Discover Glucopro®’s benefits and uses when it comes to controlling blood glucose levels, plus other strategies that can help prevent the effects of diabetes and similar health issues in the long run.

How Does Fiber Help With Blood Glucose Control?

Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar levels, can cause symptoms such as increased thirst or hunger, frequent urination, headaches, and blurred vision. Hyperglycemia has also been linked to complications such as heart disease, stroke, and neuropathy or nerve pain.1 This is why it is important to control high blood sugar early on, and fiber can help manage a person’s blood sugar levels after a meal.2

Fiber assists in maintaining ideal blood sugar levels since the body finds it difficult to absorb and break down this nutrient. As a result, it may not cause increases in blood sugar levels in the same way as carbohydrates.3 Health experts in India have recommended “fiber rich diabetes nutrition” for people with Type 2 diabetes. Benefits include:4

  • Improvements on glycemic control and plasma lipid concentrations
  • Decreases in blood sugar spikes, and instances of extremely high insulin levels or hyperinsulinemia
  • Better weight management

Researchers have also discovered that subjects who drank tea with resistant maltodextrin, the dietary fiber found in Glucopro®, were able to manage their blood glucose levels, while experiencing reductions in their waist circumference and visceral fat area.5 In a separate (and earlier) study, subjects who drank tea with resistant maltodextrin also reported lower blood glucose levels.6

Can Exercise Lower Blood Sugar Levels?

Just because dietary fibers like resistant maltodextrin have been proven to help people regulate blood sugar levels, it does not mean you should rely on them alone if you want to improve your health.

Did you know that exercise and blood sugar levels are inversely linked to each other? According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), exercise can affect blood sugar levels by:7

  1. Assisting in increasing insulin sensitivity, prompting your muscles to better use insulin so they can then utilize glucose before and after exercise
  2. Prompting the cells to use glucose as an energy source when your muscles contract during exercise, regardless of whether insulin is present or not

People with high blood sugar levels who may be at risk for diabetes are often recommended to do moderate-intensity workouts for 150 minutes a week or vigorous-intensity aerobic exercises for 75 minutes a week.

In fact, it is said that combining regular aerobic and resistance exercises with a low-fat diet assisted in weight loss of almost 5 kg for two years and beyond, while lowering the risk for type 2 diabetes, as well.

As such, try to work out for at least 30 minutes each day, five times a week, while making healthy food choices and aiming for a healthy body weight. These strategies can greatly help you maintain ideal blood sugar levels and improve quality of life, especially if you already have diabetes.8

Before you start working out, be aware of your fitness levels and know your limits. Don’t forget to warm up before and cool down after workouts as well. Feel free to consult a physical trainer who can give you other exercise tips to help prevent injuries and lower blood sugar levels.

How to Control Your Blood Sugar Levels Better With These Additional Strategies

Learning how to control your blood sugar levels so they are in a healthy range involves various strategies. If you are committed to maintaining or lowering your blood sugar levels, keep these tips in mind:

  1. Eat fiber-rich food: Ideally, your daily diet should be your main source of nutrients such as fiber. Filipino adults aged 19 years old and above are advised to get 20 to 25 grams of dietary fiber daily9 from sources like whole grains, brown rice, quinoa, apples,10 bananas, carrots, kidney beans, broccoli, spinach, and sunflower seeds.11
  2. Manage your stress: Stress can cause blood sugar levels to rise as it produces hormones like glucocorticoids (GC) and catecholamines). While the effects aren’t acute, if there is too much stress in the body, this may disrupt the glucose homeostasis or balance between insulin and glucagon over time. This may increase the risk of chronic hyperglycemia, leading to insulin resistance and eventually type 2 diabetes.12

    To reduce stress, try practicing tai chi or yoga, engaging in meditation and mindfulness techniques, exercising more, talking to a therapist, or spending time with family and friends.13
  3. Get enough sleep: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults above 18 years old get a minimum of seven hours of sleep nightly.14 It is possible that a lack of sleep may predispose someone to insulin resistance15 that can increase the risk for blood sugar levels and diabetes.16
