We’ve all heard the narrative. Carbs are bad. Carbs will raise your blood sugar and lead to an energy crash later. Carbs should be avoided at all costs.
But the truth is, carbs are hard to avoid—and not just because many delicious foods are full of them. Aiming for perfect self-control with carbs simply isn’t a realistic goal. And our bodies do need some carbs to function.
So how do we strike a healthy carb balance? Is it a lost cause?
With Unicity Balance, it doesn’t have to be.
How Our Bodies Process Carbs
Before we talk about how Unicity Balance can help manage the carbs we eat, let’s do a quick overview of what happens when your body processes carbohydrates.
As carbs are digested, our bodies convert them into glucose, or sugar, which is then released into the bloodstream. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, helps our cells access that glucose for energy.
Insulin is designed to keep blood sugar levels steady, but over time our bodies can stop responding to insulin. Insulin resistance can lead to fatigue, weight gain, and other health conditions.
It is for these reasons that we’re told to limit our carb intake.
Just Add Fiber
All is not lost, though. You don’t have to cut out carbs to maintain your energy and healthy glucose levels.
You simply need more fiber.
Nature intended fiber to come paired with carbohydrates. Fiber keeps you feeling fuller for longer so you’re less tempted to snack on sugary foods. It slows digestion so glucose is better regulated.
However, the modern diet makes it difficult to get the fiber we need alongside our carbs. Most of the global population only gets about half the fiber they need each day. Too often fiber is stripped out by food companies. Why? Because fiber is counter to their goal. Without fiber to keep us satiated, we want to eat more food, more frequently.
Make Up the Difference with Balance
Now that we understand the importance of fiber in our daily diets, it should be easier to prioritize it. But simply eating more fiber probably won’t be enough.
This is where Unicity Balance comes in.
Balance makes it easier to get the fiber we need each day. Furthermore, when taken with food, its special blend of soluble fiber helps slow the rate of glucose absorption in the body, and keeps you feeling fuller, for longer. Which means you won’t have to rely on willpower alone to avoid that afternoon doughnut you don’t need.
Balance also promotes a lower and slower rise in blood sugar, which prevents the energy roller coaster than can happen with blood sugar spikes. When you take it before your two largest meals, it’ll help you maintain a steady supply of energy throughout the day. With today’s busy lifestyles, who doesn’t want that?
That’s not all Balance does, though. Its unique Bios Cardio matrix contains phytosterols, which are natural plant compounds that slow the absorption of cholesterol, thus supporting healthy cholesterol levels in the blood when you take it with food. Balance also contains a special vitamin complex designed to support proper digestion and optimize the conversion of food into fuel.
In short, Balance provides vital nutrients and helps keep your body functioning efficiently.
A Life with Balance
Unicity Balance helps reduce some of the unwanted effects of the modern lifestyle—the blood sugar spikes, energy crashes, and lack of fiber in our diets. It helps us maintain our body’s systems and keep things running as they should—even if we’re not perfect at avoiding refined carbs like sugar and white flour.
With Balance you can still enjoy the occasional bowl of pasta or slice of fresh bread without guilt. Visit shop.unicity.com today to try Balance for yourself.
