Relevant not only for diabetics, but for everyone who wants to feel energized and fix cravings.

Did you know that 80% of non-diabetics are likely to experience glucose spikes, with everyday foods such as morning smoothie or breakfast cereal? Today we will explore the cutting edge science and tips from a biochemist and founder of the Glucose Goddess movement Jessie Inchauspé, who believes that flattening our glucose curves is the most powerful place to start for better health. Then, we will share how ORA can become your best friend among Jessie's tips.

"With flatter glucose curves, we enjoy fewer cravings, better energy, more restful sleep, slower aging, improved fertility and sex hormones, better skin, fewer wrinkles, healthier heart, less cognitive decline, fewer menopause symptoms, easier management of gestational diabetes and type 1 diabetes, and less risk of type 2 diabetes."

What Happens During a Glucose Spike?

  1. Free radicals are produced, which harm our cells, mutate our DNA, lead to oxidative stress and inflammation. Inflammation is the root cause of most diseases.

  2. Each glucose spike leads to glycation, which is the process of aging of our body. Glycation leads to many age-related issues, from cataracts to Alzheimer’s. When we slow down glycation, we live a longer, healthier life.

  3. Insulin gets released, so that excess glucose gets stored as fat.

How to Lower Glucose Spikes? Biochemist's Miracle Hacks:

  1. Eating foods in the right order

  2. Adding a plate of vegetables to all your meals

  3. Have a savoury breakfast

  4. Only eat fruit whole

  5. If you want a snack, have a savoury snack

  6. Have dessert over a sweet snack

  7. Incorporate vinegar into your routine – for example 1 tablespoon of it diluted in water before meals

  8. Use your muscles for 10 minutes after your meals

  9. Avoid naked carbs
