In Episode 100 of the Real World Wellness Podcast, Christine delves further into the science of how insulin resistance and insulin depletion develops and risk factors such as chronic trauma and stress. She also explains how the Glycemic Index/Load applies to carbohydrates compared to the broader Insulin Index. She describes recent research on the Chinese supplement berberine showing that it improves insulin sensitivity and has other benefits.
Exercise should also be a component of any program to improve insulin sensitivity. Christine discusses the latest research on the impact of aerobic, endurance and resistance training on insulin sensitivity.
