Dibaetes is one of the most common diseases in the world. It is spreading like wildfire. The statistics are alarming; estimates show that by 2030, more than 550 million people will be diabetic.
If not managed well, diabetes is an open invitation to a myriad of diseases such as heart failure, kidney disease, eye sight loss etc. Every year, about 1.5 million people succumb to death as a result of diabetes complications. What’s surprising is that a big chunk of the people having diabetes doesn’t even know they have it. It's highly unfortunate that despite the advances in research and availability of inofmration, people are still oblivious of the health risks of diabetes.
There are a lot of ways to prevent, and if you already have it, manage diabetes. One such way is to consume sea moss supplement.
Sea moss is a special seed weed that is a gift from nature to manage an array of health conditions, one of which is diabetes. It contains, iron, zinc, calcium, and other vitamins that fulfil our body’s nutrient deficiencies and enhance immunity. It also improves blood sugar.
Diabetic patients should therefore consider adding sea moss to their diet. Let's have a brief look at what makes sea moss so special for people having diabetic problems.
A few studies have shown positive results. Sea weed contains a brown-colored pigment called fucoxanthin that decreases body weight and insulin resistance in overweight and obese people.
Focoxanthin works by making the body respond to insulin in a much better and effective way. In simple words, it helps our bodies control blood sugar levels on their own.
Sea moss is also believed to be beneficial for diabetic patients as it may prevent their bodies from high sugar levels (spikes) or even crashes. No wonder so many diabetic patients have started consuming it.
Another fact about seaweed is that it’s rich in zinc and little do most people know that there is a direct relation between this mineral and diabetes. People with zinc deficiencies are more likely to suffer from diabetes. So in case there are diabetics around you, you might want to get their zinc levels checked. If they are low, buying a sea moss supplement should be the next thing on your to-do list.
Iodine also helps in keeping our bodies healthy. It does not only help our metabolism but also assists the thyroid functions. In other words, a low thyroid hormone level increases your risk of diabetes in the long run. But you don’t have to worry when an iron-packed formula is around.
Similarly sea moss contains a significant amount of magnesium. Higher levels of magnesium in our bodies means higher chances of our bodies controlling diabetes.
Sea Moss is a great supplement to add to your diet if you have or are at a risk of diabetes. 1-2 tablespoons of a nutrient-packed supplement a day will enhance your immunity, improve blood sugar and insulin resistance and give you energy to go about your day.
