Call me controversial but I always think this time of year is the perfect time to start a food regime – note I don’t use the word diet because I could never stick to one – it’s psychological. But at this time of year when there’s going to be pointless canapes and an abundance of sugary treats, if you don’t have any self-control it’s a good idea to get your control in a super clever non-pharmaceutical pill that is manufactured to pharmaceutical standards.
This is essentially a blood sugar management little darling. It controls the bodies need for sugar and therefore for carbs are radically reduced. There are no hunger pangs between meals, there’s no energy highs and lows and the available glucose in foods is metabolised efficiently because of the healthy circulating levels of glucose in the bloodstream. It also helps with fatigue and loss of concentration. In short, it goes everywhere with me.
Pharma Nord is a wonderful company that manufactures high-grade vitamins and minerals often to a pharmaceutical level. The Bio Gluco Control (£18.95) combines Delphinol, an extract from a Chilean Maque Berry and organic chromium. Chromium is a trace mineral that works together with insulin to process sugars efficiently. Delphinol breaks the sugars down and helps to control sharp spikes in blood glucose levels. On the whole, it’s a wonderful tool to help you through the party season and also I love the effect it has on sharpening concentration.
