Hi this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we're talking about what is an ideal blood sugar level. So, there's, our blood sugar is basically how much sugar we have in our blood at any given time. And, we want to keep it in a moderate place, so we don't want tons of sugar flowing through our blood. We get high blood sugar, or hyperglycemia. And at the same time, we don't want no sugar in our blood, because sugar is what helps us bring us energy and it helps our brain, so we feel alive and awake. If our blood sugar was very, very low, we would go into hypoglycemia, and we would end up in the hospital just like hyper. So the levels that we want keep between at all times throughout the day and night if possible, is between 80 and 120, and I believe it's milligrams per deciliter of blood. So, some foods that will help modestly raise blood sugar are your fruits, and I really recommend choosing fruits that are lower in sugar like blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, basically your berries, versus your high sugar fruits like dried fruit or bananas or even more refined carbohydrates. This is Rachael in Miami Beach, Florida.
