Satisfy your thirst without spiking your sugar: The lowdown on lemonade

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Lemonade is a refreshing drink most-liked among many people, especially during hot summer days. But if you are conscious about your health and blood glucose levels, think twice before indulging in this sweet beverage. Lemonade can cause glucose spikes if it has sugar syrup or other sweeteners.

How to optimise lemonade?
• Try to avoid adding sugar to your lemonade.
• Experiment with natural sweeteners like agave nectar, maple syrup, stevia, honey or coconut sugar to find your preferred source of sweetness.
• Try to make your lemonade at home.
• When ordering at a restaurant or cafe, you can ask for a salted lemonade instead of a sweet one.

High blood glucose levels can harm your health, especially if you are a pre-diabetic, diabetic or fitness enthusiast. Avoid added sugar in your lemonade and lower your risk of experiencing glucose spikes. This will help prevent insulin resistance and weight gain. A salted lemonade can be a refreshing drink even without the added sugar.
Enjoy lemonade without the sugar crash!
