Nutrients that Support Insulin Sensitivity
Insulin is the primary hormone that controls blood sugar levels in the body. Insulin resistance is a condition where muscles and other tissues do not respond to insulin as expected. Insulin resistance causes the body to make more and more insulin to keep blood sugar in a healthy range. Over time, the body’s ability to produce higher amounts of insulin is exhausted, which can lead to the development of prediabetes and eventually type 2 diabetes.
