Insulin resistance is a silent killer.

Insulin resistance is a silent killer.
If undetected, it can lead to type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease.
Here are 7 warning signs you might be insulin resistant:

1) Excess Belly Fat
When insulin is chronically high, the body stores fat around the abdomen.
This type of fat, visceral fat, is dangerous because it wraps around the organs.
This leads to an increased risk of disease and insulin resistance.

2) Constant Hunger
Constant hunger may be a sign of insulin resistance.
When insulin levels are out of balance, your body can’t effectively use glucose, leading to fluctuating blood sugar levels.
And when blood sugar levels rise and fall rapidly, it causes feelings of hunger.

3) Low Energy Levels Insulin resistance causes chronic fatigue. When your body can't clear glucose timely, your blood sugar elevates and then eventually falls off a cliff. That crash an hour after lunch is a sign your nutrition needs adjusting.

4) High Inflammation Insulin resistance often creates an inflammatory feedback loop. Chronic inflammation blocks insulin signaling pathways, leading to further insulin resistance. This perpetuates the inflammatory response, and so the cycle continues.

5) High Blood Pressure Insulin resistance is associated with hypertension for a few reasons: • Inability to dilate blood vessels • Inflammation then causes constriction of blood vessels The kidney’s inability to regulate sodium balance leading to excess sodium retention

6) High Triglycerides Excess glucose is stored in the form of triglycerides. Poor blood sugar control leads to increased levels which is strongly associated with cardiovascular disease. Improving your metabolic health will lower triglycerides and risk of disease.

7) Brain Fog While there are other causes of brain fog, it can be a sign your body isn't metabolizing food well. Either the quality of the food is low or the body cannot properly process nutrients after years of abuse. Brain fog can be a sign of a compromised metabolism

Probiotics such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium have beneficial effects on the metabolic profile and insulin resistance biomarkers,  Consumption of prebiotics for modulating the gut microbiota results in the production of microbial metabolites such as short-chain fatty acids that play essential roles in reducing blood glucose levels, mitigating insulin resistance, reducing inflammation, and promoting the secretion of glucagon-like peptide 1 in the host, and this accounts for the observed remission of metabolic diseases.

Avincia Gut Fuel is packed with both Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
