alcohol and excess sugar

Excess sugar

According to what we think, Suffering from diabetes does not necessarily mean that our diet is too rich in sugar. This is because his pancreas no longer secretes or secretes a small amount of insulin, a gland or hormone that will regulate blood sugar to a normal value. A diet that is too high in sugar raises blood sugar, which in turn wears out and causes the pancreas to work, which may not work normally, leading to diabetes.

It is the same during the consumption of our natural products, we demand a total restriction of the sugar during a treatment with our natural treatments for fear of creating interactions which could affect its efficiency in the organism.
