Glucose Spikes

February is usually recognized as heart month. This month our friends at Life Extension Foundation have included many articles in their magazine about cardiovascular health. One article that caught my attention had to do with glucose spikes. That is the blood sugar response coming from your body after you eat a meal. Your blood sugar usually spikes between one and two hours of food consumption. What scientist are finding out is that if your blood sugar spikes to high it is very damaging to your cardiovascular system. This is been of interest to me ever since I witnessed something that took place at an airport.

Many years ago, in another life, I used to work at the airport. One day while I was on my way to work I noticed a huge pipe that had busted. The workers had taped off the area and there seem to be this goo oozing from the pipes. Since it was not an extremely cold day I asked one of the workers what caused the pipe to bust? He said to me, “you see that goo oozing from the pipe”? And of course, I said, “yes”. He said, “that is coming from the sugar drinks that have been poured down the drain and have blocked the pipe.”

That got me to thinking. If sugar could do that in a large drain pipe, what is it doing to our bodies? The answer, of course, is it is doing a lot of damage. This is being seen in what is called glucose spikes. Glucose spikes, or sugar spikes, along with insulin spikes are very damaging to the lining of our arteries. Not only are they damaging to the lining of our arteries, but they also cause our blood to become thick as well.

What is causing these glucose spikes? Well of course it is eating too much sugar. Having a high carbohydrate diet and eating foods that have a high glycemic value. What is a glycemic value? It’s how quickly a particular food will raise blood glucose levels after it is eaten.

Not only are glucose spikes harmful to arteries in tissues it also promotes weight gain and can make you insulin resistant. This is where you have plenty of insulin, but your cells just cannot use it. Therefore, your blood sugar remains high and the cells can I get the sugar they need for fuel. All of this is coming from foods and drinks that have a high glycemic value. The solution is, of course, eating foods with a low glycemic value and keeping the linings of your arterial cells healthy.

There are supplements that are showing promise with regard to controlling insulin levels. Some of those supplements include chromium picolinate, green tea, and green coffee bean extracts.  Of course, they are no substitute for a healthy diet.  Diet is the first place to start when we are talking about health.  Learn how to cook and prepare healthy foods that have a low glycemic index and are beneficial for your health.

Arginine is vital for endothelium health. Arginine helps the body produce nitric oxide and nitric oxide keeps the inner lining of our arteries healthy.
