Insulin is often referred to as your body’s no 1 “Storage Hormone“.

Insulin is a hormone that is produced in the beta cells in the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas and is released by time the brain sense blood glucose levels on the rise.  Certain type of protein can spike insulin quickly, but this primarily happens after you consume any type of impact carbohydrate.



To determine the “impact” a carb has on insulin simply take the total carb grams and subtract the fiber grams.  This is why higher higher carb foods such as potatoes, carrots, parsnips, or white rice can quickly increase insulin, while high fiber-low carb veggies such as broccoli, asparagus, green beans, etc do not.

In other words, “impact” carbohydrates will break down faster in the body releasing glucose quicker and thus, raising blood glucose levels faster, which in turn creates a higher overall insulin spike.


Whenever glucose molecules begin to make their way into the blood stream, insulin is released to take those glucose molecules to a safe place (which in the body is either the muscle cells as Glycogen or inside FAT CELLS as triglycerides).

Maintaining high blood glucose levels is not healthy so the body muscle do everything in its power to normalize the situation and have blood glucose return back to healthy levels.
