The lower the number, the slower the rate of absorption and the better it is for keeping healthy blood sugar levels.

Lower Glycemic Index diets will help you:
  • Feel fuller longer and reduce hunger
  • Prolong athletic performance
  • Control diabetes
  • Reduce heart disease and cholesterol
  • Control weight loss
  • Improve insulin sensitivities
  • Decrease mood swings
