How Psyllium Husk Can Help Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Did you know that national nutrition surveys show that the average American eats 22 teaspoons of sugar per day?

That’s more than double the recommended daily amount! Along with the high amount of sugar, the average American is also consuming only 15 grams of fiber per day, which is only about half of the daily requirement.

The fiber gap in our diets has become so wide that the USDA recently listed fiber as a “nutrient of concern.” The sugar surplus and fiber gap in today’s typical diet is a real problem - high intake of sugar with low intake of fiber can make it difficult to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. With high sugar and low fiber in almost every processed food we eat closing the gap can be difficult. Adding a natural fiber supplement like Bellway into your diet can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and close the fiber gap.

Why are healthy blood sugar levels important?

Sugar absorbs into your bloodstream rapidly, and over time this can impact your blood sugar levels. According to the American Diabetes Association 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes, which is a concerning statistic given how life-changing diabetes can be. If you are concerned about maintaining your blood sugar levels, adding Bellway to your daily routine can help!

How can Bellway help maintain healthy blood sugar levels?

After you eat, carbohydrates like pasta or bread are broken down into simple sugars, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. Typically, most sugar absorption occurs early in the digestive process. Bellway forms a thick gel that traps some of the sugar and carbohydrates. This delays the absorption of the sugar so that some of it is absorbed later in the digestive process.
