The Supplement That Can Cut Your Sugar Addiction
Hey Guys! Dr. Nathan Byard with Health Dallas Chiropractic. Now obviously, we do chiropractic care, but we're more than just a chiropractic center. We're a whole body health and wellness center! Where we really care about making sure everything is healthy and one of the biggest issues that we see on a daily basis, is sugar addiction!
The title of the video probably got your attention, "the supplement that can cut your addiction." The supplement that we're talking about is called, "Gymnema" in the medical world it's known as the sugar destroyer, but it's actually an herb from the milkweed family. So how it works is when you put this on your tongue, it's gonna cut the sugar receptors so you won't be able to taste sugar. At the same time at the intestinal level it helps block the intestines from absorbing sugar. There are a lot of ways that you can use this herb, you can take it every day and it will help promote healthy blood sugar balance and and decrease your cravings over time, but for most of us we need something that's gonna help now.
So I like to use it more as an intervention, because to me that's more effective. So the question is, "where do you need an intervention?" For me, it's after dinner. That's when I know I have a sugar craving and I need a little bit of help to avoid eating dessert that night. For you, it might be in the morning on the way to work, you want to stop by get a Starbucks, or sugary drink. Those kind of things, so once we identify where that intervention is needed, then we can effectively use the tool. Gymnema comes in two different forms: there's a liquid form and there's a tablet form. I like the tablets because we're gonna be using this as an intervention and they're easy to carry around with you. You can pop a few in your purse or in your pocket, and when you need it as an intervention, when you have that sugar craving, that's when we're gonna implement it.
So you're gonna pop it in your mouth, you're gonna suck on it like a lozenge, the longer it's in your mouth the more effective it's gonna be at cancelling those sugar taste buds.
