How have your holiday parties been going? Have you been hovering near the top of your daily caloric intake? Or indulging a bit too much? I know how it goes, with all the festive treats that seem to surround us all this month. 3 ways you can help stave off cravings for extra sweets, keep yourself full enough to steer clear of extra portions, and avoid extra digestive upsets are by retaining normal blood-sugar levels, making sure you get enough fiber, and ingesting enough healthy gut bacteria. As part of our December GIFT OF HEALTH exploration, I am sharing Shaklee products that address all our needs for Blood Sugar and Digestive Health. 136. Along with achieving a healthy weight through diet and exercise, “Glucose Regulation Complex” is a unique blend of scientifically supported ingredients that promote efficient glucose utilization and help keep blood sugar levels steady.
