The phytonutrients in apples can help you regulate your blood sugar.
Recent research has shown that apple polyphenols can help prevent spikes in blood sugar through a variety of mechanisms.
The polyphenols in apples have been shown to lessen absorption of glucose from the digestive tract; to stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to secrete insulin; and to increase uptake of glucose from the blood via stimulation of insulin receptors.
All of these mechanisms triggered by apple polyphenols can make it easier for you to regulate your blood sugar.
Jesus commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. Matthew 14:19
Jesus blessed both the bread and the fishes but only gave the loaves to the disciples to distribute. Why?
In several places in the New Testament, Jesus represents bread; Jesus is the living bread that came down from heaven (John 6:51), Jesus is the bread of life (John 6:35).
