One More Post About Insulin

I know that lately it seems like I’ve gone off on a tangent about insulin and blood sugar – but its something that has fascinated me lately as I keep learning more about it. Today during one of my YouTube watching streaks, I came across an amazing Ted-Ed video that explains carbohydrates and their effect on our blood sugar levels and insulin. The video is easy to understand and with the help of graphics, does a great job at illustrating the way excessive carbohydrates ultimately can cause Metabolic Syndrome (which is steadily on the rise in our population!). I encourage you to watch this short video when you have a chance – I’m sure you’ll find it as enlightening as I did!
