There is no doubt this approach can benefit South African children, too – particularly in light of the unique set of challenges with which many are faced, both at school and at home.

  38. 4 Supplements to Balance Blood Sugar Levels & Cravings
    4 Supplements to Balance Blood Sugar Levels & Cravings
    by Wellness Warehouse
    Your body needs blood sugar ' in fact your brain runs on it. Take note though: the sugar your brain needs isn't the same sugar you put in your tea ' it's the glucose created when food is broken down in your system. When blood sugar is low, you tend to feel a bit fuzzy, battle to concentrate and can be irritable. Because humans are geared for survival, low blood sugar levels lead to cravings ' your body knows you need an injection of sugar, fast. Your brain will often look for the quickest source of energy, and that might be an unhealthy high-calorie doughnut. With this quick sugar injection, you'll just as quickly get the low ' meaning you'll crave another high energy snack and it can become an unhealthy cycle of cravings and sugar slumps.
