Strategies to increase insulin sensitivity: diet, exercise and supplements
Sep 3 17
In Episode 100 of the Real World Wellness Podcast, Christine delves further into the science of how insulin resistance and insulin depletion develops and risk factors such as chronic trauma and stress. She also explains how the Glycemic Index/Load applies to carbohydrates and how the Insulin Index applies to all macronutrients. She describes recent research on the Chinese supplement berberine showing that it improves insulin sensitivity and has other benefits. Exercise should also be a component of any program to improve insulin sensitivity. Christine discusses the latest research on the impact of aerobic, endurance and resistance training on insulin sensitivity. Christine will take a break from podcasting this month to devote more time to writing including her blog posts.
