363: The Science Behind Glucose Control, Diabetes, and Gut Health with Pendulum’s Kristin Neusel


What the heck is Akkermansia and what does it have to do with gut health, and diabetes? That’s what I aim to find out on today’s episode of Food Heals with my guest, Kristin Neusel.

Kristin is a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist and is the dietician at Pendulum. The mission of Pendulum is to empower people with products and nutritional information that help them live healthy, well-balanced lives. (Sounds like we have a lot in common, huh?)

It can feel like an uphill battle to keep post-meal blood sugar and A1C levels where you need them. That’s where Pendulum Glucose Control comes in.

If you’ve struggled to manage these levels with diet and exercise alone, your gut microbiome might need attention. Pendulum Glucose Control helps fill in the gaps between diet and exercise.

Pendulum Glucose Control is designed to lower A1C and after-meal blood glucose levels to help you manage your Type 2 diabetes.

With Pendulum, you can feel in control of your levels—not the other way around.

Pendulum’s team of scientists, doctors, and innovators isolated the unique strains of beneficial gut bacteria that help people with Type 2 diabetes manage their blood sugar levels.

Pendulum is the only place to purchase a newly-isolated, highly sought-after strain called Akkermansia! Use code FOODHEALS at www.PendulumLife.com to get 20% off your first month!
