It’s all about having the right levels
Blood sugar. Triglycerides. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Blood pressure. Waist circumference. When all of these are at the right levels, you’re considered to be in good metabolic health. When these levels are out of whack, it can lead to diabetes and coronary disease.
So, how do antioxidant-rich wild blueberries impact your metabolic health?
A Low Glycemic Food
The Glycemic index ranks carbohydrates in foods according to how they affect blood glucose levels. Carbohydrates with a low GI value (55 or less) are more slowly digested, absorbed, and metabolized. They cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose and insulin levels. With a glycemic index of 53, wild blueberries are considered a low glycemic food and can help you maintain healthy blood sugar or insulin levels.
