Elevated blood sugar levels are associated with inflammation, tumor proliferation, decrease in immune function, and angiogenesis.
Angiogenesis plays a critical role in the growth and spread of cancer. A blood supply is necessary for tumors to grow beyond a few millimeters in size. Tumors can cause this blood supply to form by giving off chemical signals that stimulate angiogenesis.
Thankfully, there are many foods that help lower our blood sugar. There are also tactics you can use to keep your blood sugar in check:
1. Avoid refined, low fiber carbs and sweets
2. Choose whole grain foods that offer more than 1-gram of fiber for every 10-grams of Carbs (the Good Carb Formula.)
3. Avoid eating carbs alone especially on an empty stomach! Add a protein or healthy fat to balance blood sugar (almond butter, coconut oil, sardines, light meat tuna, almond cream cheese,etc.)
