5 Ways to Lower Blood Sugar Levels

5 Ways to Lower Blood Sugar Levels

Are you looking for ways to lower your blood sugar naturally? These 5 tips will help you lower blood sugar levels and boost overall health.

Simple dietary and lifestyle changes to lower blood sugar levels can make a big difference in living well and preventing future health issues. Here are 5 easy ways to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. 

  1. Eat more fiber. Foods that are rich in fiber help to slow the absorption of sugar and improve blood glucose levels. Plus, fiber helps reduce hunger and promotes fullness if you are looking to manage your weight. Fiber-packed foods include beans, avocados, berries, whole-grains, and OWYN’s Protein Shakes! Try incorporating fiber rich foods into each meal to help stabilize your blood sugars.
  2. Exercise regularly. Exercise is a great way to boost your body’s ability to manage blood sugar. It helps regulate your blood sugar and prevent spikes. Physical activity can help muscles use blood sugar for energy and muscle contraction.
  3. Stay hydrated. Drinking more water isn’t new advice but staying hydrated is an easy way to stay in control of blood sugar levels. Water not only helps prevent dehydration, it also helps flush glucose out of the body and lower blood sugar in a healthy way.  
  4. Manage stress. Blood sugar levels can increase when you’re under stress. It can also affect food choices and leave you feeling run-down. Taking time to clear your mind through relaxing activities, such as deep breathing, yoga, or hobbies, can help relieve stress.
  5. Make healthy shifts in your diet. Replace foods and drinks high in added sugars with healthier options. You could eat fruit instead of cookies or cake for dessert, swap sugary cereals for fiber-rich, unsweetened cereal at breakfast, or choose OWYN’s High Protein Shakes with zero sugar instead of reaching for that candy bar in the late afternoon.
