A new study reveals exactly how inactivity affects health. They found that inactivity raises people’s blood sugar levels, which spikes after each meal.
How exactly does inactivity affect ill health?
It’s harder to figure out how because most inactive people tend to have other bad habits like smoking, drinking, eating junk food, etc.
To figure out the researchers devised a novel approach – they stopped a group of active people from exercising. They got them to cut the number of steps they took each day by at least half and the question the researchers asked was will this physical laziness stop the body from being able to control blood sugar – the key disease-inducing factor for diabetes and heart disease. Volunteers were fitted with glucose measuring devices so that their blood sugar could be checked continuously through 24 hours.
They were asked to move about as little as possible but eat normally, the Mirror reported. To examine their basic blood sugar control, these healthy people were told they could walk and exercise normally for three days. During this period their blood sugar did not spike at all after eating, a sign that they had perfect control over their blood sugar and they were ideally sensitive to insulin.
For the second part of the experiment, the volunteers became virtually sedentary and the time spent exercising fell to about three minutes. The researchers found that during those three inactive days, blood glucose levels spiked after every meal with the peaks being 25% higher than during active days.
In other words, blood sugar went out of control, the longer the subjects remained inactive, but if being inactive is your way of life, this experiment shows that the knock-on effect is your insulin loses its effect and you’re on the slippery slope to ill health.
Control Blood Sugar Levels (whether active or inactive)
By taking the Manna Blood Sugar Support caplets with each meal, you can help your body to control blood sugar levels, because the product causes the glucose from the food you have eaten to be slowly absorbed into the blood stream.
If you are diabetic, you can use the Manna Blood Sugar Support with your current medication, but just be careful that your sugar levels don’t drop too low.
