Low Carb Diets can Improve Brain Function
Following the American Diabetes Association’s change of position on the effectiveness of low-carb treatments to manage diabetes, research published this week in Neurology further supports the importance of lowering blood sugar levels overall, and has suggested that a lower blood sugar level may improve brain function.
The study by Charite University Medicine in Berlin looked at memory function and blood sugar levels of individuals with an average age of 63. The results obtained showed that individuals who had a higher blood sugar level exhibited a shorter memory span than those who had blood sugar levels within the normal range. This research builds on from previous studies which have also established the link between high blood sugar levels and impaired brain function.
With the rise in diabetes and pre-diabetes diagnosis, this new evidence further proves the importance of managing blood sugar levels via diet.
Here at The Natural Low Carb Store we understand the importance of managing blood sugar levels via the diet whilst still enjoying real food. Our food is not about avoiding carbohydrates but about choosing the right types of carbohydrates to help manage blood sugar levels effectively.
