Caffeine is found obviously in coffee, but also in tea, soda’s, energy drinks and chocolate. And YES, caffeine most certainly raises blood sugar levels, but it does a lot worse actually.
Calories In Drinks
First, most caffeinated drinks that people have, also contain additional calories and added sugars, so that alone will increase your blood sugar levels. Even if you used an artificial sweetener, that ALSO causes a negative change in your blood sugar levels.
Caffeine & Glucose Levels
Duke University did a study and discovered that on average, caffeine increased blood sugar levels by 8% in those with type 2 diabetes. Basically, caffeine increases blood glucose by as much as oral medications DECREASE it. So it negated any of the positive benefits of the diabetic drug.
Caffeine & Stress Hormones
Another problem is that caffeine increases the stress hormone, Cortisol. When cortisol levels are elevated, your become insulin resistant and thus, you require more insulin to lower your blood sugar levels. So, that’s another negative with caffeine.
“So What Are My Options?”
I would suggest switching to decaffeinated organic coffee or green tea because some studies have shown that they can actually help improve your blood sugar levels.
But if you just can’t seem to live without your daily “caffeine fix”, you should definitely consider what my private clients have done.
First, don’t drink your calories.
This means if you’re going to have coffee, please just have it black – don’t add in sugars and creams. Don’t have high calorie energy drinks, soda and similar products because the carbohydrates in these drinks will definitely shoot up your blood sugar levels.
The Fastest & Easiest Solution
Secondly, taking an all natural remedy such as Blood Sugar Optimizer™, is probably the fastest, easiest and safest way to manage your blood sugar levels.
Making dramatic life-style changes — such as eating much better, eliminating lots of different foods and exercising daily — is very important, but for many people can be difficult to start and it takes a longer time to see results.
Because of this, I wanted a solution that worked fast and was easy. So I created a simple, effective and proven “all-in-one” solution called Blood Sugar Optimizer™… which is a small pill that helps:
- Lower blood sugar, HbA1c & glucose levels.
- Improve insulin sensitivity.
- Prevent cravings, mood swings & energy crashes.
One major reason Blood Sugar Optimizer™ is better than other options is because it’s doctor formulated and clinically tested to work.
The feedback has been amazing and since the product has been around for almost a decade, so you know it works and it’s safe!
