One of the things that I’m passionate about is to share & teach others what I know with as much clarity as possible. So, I’d like to share why Plexus Slim works so well beginning with support for healthy glucose metabolism. Because of the name Slim, most people think it’s just for weight loss. However the health benefits that result from consuming this pink drink are numerous. In this post I’m going to talk about chromium, one of the ingredients in slim & explain why it works & in subsequent posts I will talk about the other ingredients in Slim.
Chromium is One of the Ingredients That’s in Plexus Slim. Why is it important? Chromium deficiency is a wide spread problem. Many people such as athletes, diabetics, pregnant women, and the elderly are especially at risk because of chromium deficiency leading to impaired insulin function.
We know that carbs get broken down into sugar by the digestive system & is then transported into the blood stream. For glucose to be moved from the blood stream into the cells, it has to go through a process.
Insulin has to attach itself to the cell wall before the gate (receptor sites) of the cell wall will open and allow glucose to enter in. When we have enough chromium floating around, chromium binds to the cell wall which allows insulin to attach itself to the cell wall.
Here’s a Great Analogy. Imagine that Chromium works like a piece of Velcro. One side of it attaches itself to the cell wall, & the other part of it attaches itself to insulin. As soon as this happens the gates of the cells open & glucose enters the cell, which can then be converted into energy.
Here’s the thing, if we don’t have enough of chromium, insulin has a really hard time binding to the cell wall, preventing glucose from getting into the cells. Now glucose has no place to go & so it stays in the blood stream & that’s why we have high blood sugars.
Our bodies are meant to have energy & when we have an energy shortage we get tired, moody, anxious & stressed out. These are all symptoms directing us to check out the root cause which is causing the disease.
Looking forward to connecting with you soon.
Love & Blessings,
