As you know now from reading our recent blog on insulin sensitivity, Insulin is a hormone that’s secreted by your pancreas, and that insulin has many vital roles within the body, but the one it’s probably best known for its storage.

In our video above, we go over insulin sensitivity.

As you know now from reading our recent blog on insulin sensitivity, Insulin is a hormone that’s secreted by your pancreas, and that insulin has many vital roles within the body, but the one it’s probably best known for its storage.

We talk a lot with our clients at OBF about how this can be seen as a double-edged sword, as, on one hand, this can be highly useful, as insulin helps to shuttle nutrients to muscle cells, where they’re stored and used to aid rest, repair and recovery following training.

In that respect, high levels of insulin are good, as they improve your rate of muscle growth and performance.

It can also have a beneficial impact on energy levels, as another of insulin’s main roles is to store any carbohydrate you eat in the muscle cells and liver. Full stores here = lots of energy for optimal performance.

However, this can also be a downside. Watch our video by coach Josh to learn more about your insulin, how it affects what you can and cannot eat and how to control it with sleep!

Again, our recent blog on insulin sensitivity will help you better understand and apply the above video information.
