Excess weight

Obesity contributes to the insensitivity (resistance) to insulin. Organism insulin is needed for glucose to get from the blood to supply cells. When you have overweight, blood glucose can’t be absorbed by cells, and elevated blood glucose level leads to vascular damage.


Insatiable appetite (especially for sweets)

Our brain is fed by glucose. After meal blood glucose concentration is increased but glucose during diabetes does not flow to the brain. Glucose aim then is to build fat, so obesity progresses. Obesity increases further insensitivity to insulin. "Starving" brain continues to make a person eat more and more sweets.

The reason for the brutal appetite is hyperinsulinism (excess of insulin in the body).

Having hyperinsulinism glucose is consumed very quickly, so people are constantly hungry. Gymnema, cinnamon, fenugreek restore insulin sensitivity.

Chronic fatigue

Fatigue people get used to explain by the hard work. But chronic fatigue often occurs at the background of a lack of food for the muscles and the entire body. Glucose, a material for energy supply, misses muscles and nerve cells. Therefore, nervous exhaustion is combined with muscle fatigue. Frequent meals can not save the situation, but only increase the overweight.


Sleepiness after eating is a sign of diabetes

The man, who feels sleepy after eating, suffers increased resistance to insulin. Therefore, glucose, once in the body, can not penetrate into the cells and the brain. As a result, the brain does not get the basic nutrient material glucose and "falls asleep".
