How awesome would that be if you could eat that cookie because you wanted to NOT because if you didn’t eat it you were going to go into a screaming rage not getting your sugar fix? I am finally able to actually enjoy a sweet treat because I know that after I have only one cookie or one piece of cake that satisfies me and I don’t have to eat the whole dozen or whole cake to feel fulfilled. I have eaten healthy for along time; however I do enjoy a sweet treat at times.
You can control your sugar cravings with one simple trick….MINERALS. The reason why we crave sweets and sugar is because we are mineral deficient. Our soils are depleted of these minerals, therefore our foods are depleted, and so are we. Scientific studies have shown that when you take trace minerals, especially chromium and vanadium they assist in balancing your blood sugars whether your blood sugars are high or low. Chromium deficiency has not only been shown to cause sugar and/or starch cravings but also contributes to poor muscle tone which is another reason why people experience difficulty with weight loss or hit plateaus when trying to lose weight. Have a chocolate craving? That often is because of a magnesium deficiency. Did you know that minerals play a key role in metabolism, growth, development, brain function, bone health, eye sight, heart health, the immune system and so much more?
Our body requires a lot of major minerals and a small amount of trace minerals every day to perform optimally. Since minerals work in synergy with vitamins we are not able to utilize vitamins if we don’t have our daily dose of minerals. No wonder we are struggling as a society to lose weight, build muscle, and feel AHmazing!
Can you take just any minerals? Yes you could; however it is really important to get your minerals in ionic form in order for you body to absorb them. Not just any minerals will do. Do your research on the brands to take or ask someone who is educated in that area!
