National Diabetes Awareness Month

November

Diabetes is a disease millions of people battle on a daily basis in the United States. If we don't take action to better our health, we raise our risks of contracting the disease. That's why making smart choices to stay active and eat a healthy diet are essential in today's world.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • 29.1 million US adults have diabetes—and 1 out of 4 don't know they have it.
  • At least 1 out of 3 people will develop diabetes in their lifetime.
  • Medical costs for people with diabetes are twice as high as for people without diabetes.
  • Risk of death for adults with diabetes is 50% higher than for adults without diabetes.

ENLIGHTENED make diabetic friendly-snacks.

At Enlightened, we know that what you put into your body matters. That's why we make low sugar snacks that are actually GOOD-FOR-YOU. We know that cutting desserts you love out of our diet is challenging, but controlling blood sugar is an essential part of managing diabetes. That's why we use erythritol, a sugar alternative that has no impact on blood sugar, to sweeten our ice cream bars! Now you can have the frozen treat you love, without the high glycemic load. We even have a bunch of recipes featuring our products so that you can have the goodies you want, without the worry of how sugar is going to impact your health. According to the CDC, "More than a third of American adults—around 86 million—have prediabetes, and 9 out of 10 don't know it." But with the rights tools, preventing and managing diabetes is possible. We can eat and exercise smarter and lower the risks of being diagnosed with diabetes.

Check out our blog post on erythritol to read more about this natural sugar-alternative!
