3 Nutritional Supplements to Help Stop Sugar Cravings
Sugar has been shown to affect the brain in similar ways as addictive drugs. If you simply cut it out of your diet ‘cold turkey’ you may suffer withdrawal symptoms including depression, headaches and muscle aches.
Fortunately, the supplements below help to give your body what it’s looking for when it craves sugar, but without the bad side effects.
- L-Glutamine – Whether it’s due to stress, an ailment, an inadequate diet or environmental factors, you may be deficient in certain amino acids, the building blocks of every cell in your body. The deficiency has been linked to triggering sugar cravings. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in your body. While your body produces L-glutamine, it doesn’t produce enough, so you need to get it from your diet and/or supplements, like Ultra L-glutamine.
- Chromium – When you eat sweet foods, your body releases insulin to keep your blood sugar levels in check. Sometimes too much insulin is released, which can trigger your body to crave sugar. Small doses of chromium, like those available in Ultra Fibrachrome, have been shown to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce cravings.
- B-Vitamins – B-vitamins help to metabolize carbohydrates, including sugar. If they aren’t properly metabolized, it could cause a craving. Levels of the B vitamins in your body dip when you eat sugary foods and other carbohydrates. Supporting adequate levels of B vitamins in your body with Ultra B-Trim can help stop your sugar cravings.
