Did You Know?

Diabetes is not just about sugar and carbohydrates. The disease is also associated with disorders of protein and fat metabolism. Therefore, individual nutrition plans for diabetics play an increasingly important role. In addition to normal blood sugar levels, with the right nutrition you also achieve optimized blood fat levels, normal blood pressure and a healthy body weight.

Fennel

As we are leaving the summer months behind, delicious produce including fennel are coming into season. Originally from the Mediterranean area, where it is mainly grown as vegetable, it is now commonly found all across the US. Not only is it grown commercially but it is also found in meadows in the wild. You can recognize it by its finely feathered leaves, the typical fennel scent and bright yellow blossoms. As a healing herb, fennel has a lot to offer. The herb and seeds can have many health benefits including relieve menstrual cramps, relieve upset stomachs, aid in digestion, and boost the immune system. From a culinary point of view, opinions diverge regarding the fennel – some people love it and some do not like the taste at all! Stay tuned as tomorrow we will share one of our favorite recipes with you. Even if you normally do not like fennel, give this recipe a try because you will not be disappointed!

Artificial Sweeteners

The debate between sugar and artificial sweeteners has been a long-standing debate ever since the 1900’s. The first artificial sweetener, saccharin, was discovered in 1879 in a lab at Johns Hopkins University. Since then countless others including aspartame, sucralose, and Stevia have been developed. As more sweeteners were synthesized throughout the 1900’s they came under more and more scrutiny. Several studies in the 1970’s based on animal models, suggested a linkage between artificial sweeteners and cancer. These studies have mostly been disputed by follow up studies in humans.

Although a link to cancer has been refuted, this does not mean that artificial sweeteners have no impact on the body. In a recent article published by the New York Times, Marta Yanina Pepino, an assistant professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign stated, “The idea we need to get rid of is that because they have zero calories they have zero metabolic effects.” Various studies have shown that artificial sweeteners can disrupt the gut microbiome, blood sugar control, and influence glucose levels. Consuming artificial sweeteners can actually confuse the brain and the body because their sweetness signals the brain to prepare for an influx of sugar which then never arrives. This can not only disrupt the secretion of hormones such as insulin and cause glucose intolerance but also lead to a craving for sweeter foods.

For thousands of years humans did not consume overly sweet foods very often so sweet foods were actually a way to naturally regulate blood glucose levels. In modern times, sugar and artificial sweeteners have taken over the food industry and thus disrupting this. One of the best ways to get back to natural blood sugar regulation is to limit sweet foods sand avoid artificial sweeteners.
