Choose Low Glycemic Index Foods for Improved Energy

One modern and effective measurement tool is the Glycemic Index (GI). The Glycemic Index measures how a carbohydrate-containing food impacts your blood glucose levels during digestion. Foods low on the GI scale release glucose slowly and steadily, while high GI foods release rapidly.

This rapid release of glucose from high GI foods spikes blood sugar and insulin levels and leads to an inevitable crash that will leave you tired and groggy. By choosing low GI foods, you can manage your blood sugar more effectively and find sustained energy. Not only that, but a low GI diet has also been shown to lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes, reduce inflammation and aid in weight loss.

While most bars and snacks on shelves are filled with added sugar and high GI grains, Wild Zora products use only low GI carbohydrates such as healthy, high-fiber, organic fruits and vegetables to provide you with longer lasting energy, without the sugar high and crash.
