The spike-crash-crave cycle... ever heard of it?
If not, you've probably experienced these unhealthy blood sugar spikes and crashes without even knowing it.
This is how it goes:
*Typical snacks metabolize (digest) over a 1-2 hour period, causing a rapid rise in blood sugar (spike).
*The body reacts by sending an overabundance of insulin into the bloodstream.
(Insulin moves blood sugar into the body's cells for energy. Excess blood sugar can be stored in the form of glycogen in both the liver and muscles. Insulin also plays a role in fat storage.)
If you only eat simple carbs, this metabolic response causes blood sugar levels to drop (crash).
*The blood sugar crash leads to fatigue and food cravings, which tends to lead to unhealthy snack choices, restarting the vicious spike-crash-crave cycle.
Unlike typical snacks, Extend Nutrition products are low gi snacks, meaning, they won't spike your blood sugar, and therefore don't cause an insulin response (for people who produce insulin naturally). With no blood sugar spikes or insulin response, you'll avoid the old spike-crash-crave cycle and regain control of your blood sugar.
The snacks are supported by peer-reviewed clinical studies using continuous glucose monitoring, and protected by 17 international patents.
Only the Extend Nutrition formula is proven to be effective in helping to control blood sugar for up to 9 hours.
