When you eat foods high in carbohydrates ( sweets, refined carbohydrates)you trigger insulin production from your pancreas. The overproduction of insulin causes a rapid and drastic reduction in blood glucose for a short period of time. This is often experienced as drowsiness and fatigue, following the consumption of a high carbohydrate containing meal.

So what comes to the rescue when your blood sugar takes a dive? CORTISOL. Low blood sugar triggers the adrenal glands to produce more cortisol in order to stimulate the cells to produce more glucose. When this cycle of HYPOGLYCEMIC stress is repeated over and over again, it places a constant burden on the HPA Axis and in your Liver and Pancreas and can initiate a vicious cycle of chronic inflammation the root of many diseases.
