One of the very best natural ways to regulate blood sugar levels is using mustard. Mustard is an herb that comes from tiny seeds that contain loads of antioxidants that can help speed up your metabolism and help regulate your blood sugar levels so they are not all over the place. It is even excellent to take for lowering high blood pressure and increasing your appetite when you are not so hungry, but know you need to eat something healthy and good to nourish your body.
The reason why mustard can be used to help regulate blood sugar levels is because it contains magnesium which is a mineral that helps keep blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels normal. Mustard also contains many other antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in it that are essential for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels such as vitamins C, omega -fatty acids, fiber, iron, niacin, and zinc which help keep the body healthy and functioning properly so it doesn’t become ill making you not want to eat a healthy meal when you are suppose too.
The best way to get mustard into your diet is by eating it on a sandwich, or adding it to a salad dressing. You may also add mustard powder and seeds to your cooking to receive the health benefits of mustard. Some people even like to drink a mustard tonic by soaking mustard seeds in warm water over night and drinking the mustard tonic that was made from the seeds in the morning. However, I prefer adding mustard to my food because it has a strong spicy taste to it that doesn’t taste good in a tonic. Adding mustard to a sandwich is much easier and more pleasant. Heck you can even make red meats taste fabulous by marinating them in a dressing containing mustard seeds in them. Either way you need to make sure you get mustard into your diet to receive the health benefits from it that help regulate your blood sugar levels.
Some side effects you may experience from using mustard will be overactive thyroid, diarrhea, upset tummy, gas, sneezing, coughing, and eye irritations, These side effect usually only occur when you eat too much of mustard. 1 tablespoon or 2 a day of mustard should cause any side effects at all, but everyone’s body reacts different. However, it would be wise too talk to your doctor before using mustard in your diet to make sure it is the right way to help your naturally help regulate your blood sugar levels.
Anyways, I hope those of you who end up trying mustard to help naturally regulate your blood sugar levels get the results and health benefits you are looking for. I know it has worked well for me and I wouldn’t recommend trying it if it didn’t work at all. I wish you all the best with getting your blood sugar levels under controls.
