Wondering how Perfect Sweet xylitol can help manage your blood sugar levels? 

Read on…

In 2018, 1 million Australians have type 2 diabetes and up to 500,000 people may have type 2 diabetes without knowing it.  Type 2 Diabetes is often referred to a lifestyle disease because the causing factors have resulted from unhealthy choices including a high sugar diet and not enough exercise. Take responsibility for your health and take action today.

Perfect Sweet xylitol is a healthy sugar free alternative for people with Type 2 Diabetes, where the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or the insulin it does produce doesn’t work as well as it should.  Insulin is a hormone released by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar and convert your food to energy.  Insulin helps regulate your blood sugar levels and keeps them from getting too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia).    

Perfect Sweet xylitol has the same sweet taste as everyday sugar but far fewer calories and importantly, a low glycaemic index (GI) of 7.  This basically means that xylitol, unlike refined and hidden sugars, doesn’t cause the sharp spike in blood glucose levels which gives you that tell-tale instant high followed by a crashing slump, that can leave you tired and irritable.

Type 2 Diabetes is on the rise globally because of our diet and lifestyle choices and our cravings for refined carbs and sugar.  Prevention or keeping the disease at bay has meant that many people have turned to various artificial sweeteners to get their sweet fix. However, apart from the bitter after taste these artificial sweeteners have, there are very serious concerns about the long-term health consequences of these lab made sugar alternatives.

Perfect Sweet xylitol is a healthy, sugar free alternative with no nasty after taste and is perfect for tea, coffee and baking.

Anyone who thought giving up sugar meant giving up on the sweet things in life can now enjoy their favourite treats and desserts with Perfect Sweet…..but remember everything in moderation.
