Blood sugar regulation (pancreas)

The pancreas and endocrine system controls blood sugar regulation. Making sure insulin is released from the pancreas, transported and used appropriately to put glucose into cells can be supported with nutrients such as magnesium, chromium, vanadium, b vitamins.

To decrease the demand on insulin and the pancreas (which may be overworked with sugary or processed foods), include low GI ( glycemic index) foods. These foods usually contain the nutrients we need to support this process.

  • Protein foods (lamb, beef, chicken, small white fish)
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Whole grains (barley, oats, rye, spelt, buckwheat)
  • Fats (coconut oil, organic butter, avocado, goats or sheep’s dairy)
