4.  B Vitamins

Many times, an insufficient amount of B vitamins makes you feel as if you simply must eat more carbs. This is the body’s way of trying to get a sufficient amount. Taking a B vitamin supplement will greatly help improve carbohydrate metabolism, so you make better use of the carbs you are eating. Always consume a B complex, as these vitamins work best in combination with one another. Also, use a fat soluble form, rather than the water soluble form. You will need between 100 to 250mg of the fat soluble form every day. Find out how to fight with Vitamin B2 deficiency.

 

5. Fish Oil

This works in much the same way resveratrol does. Fish oil increases insulin sensitivity. Krill oil is especially effective. It is more expensive, yes, but it’s well worth the cost, as it is better absorbed and better utilized than other types of fish oil.

 

6. L-tryptophan

Firstly, do not consume this if you are taking antidepressants. If the name sounds familiar, yes, it’s the same compound that is found in small quantities in milk and turkey meat and can make you feel relaxed and sleepy after a meal, however, this is also super helpful for reducing those carb cravings. You can often find this in many amino acid supplements. Take between 500 to 1500mg daily for best results.

 

7. CoEnzymeQ10

Sometimes called ubiquinone, this is a vital part of your cell’s energy producing powerhouses and critical if you want to improve your carb utilization. Some multi-vitamins have this already built in, but you can also consume it on its own. You will need between 80 and 300mg daily. Always buy a good quality supplement from a trusted company as this supplement recent popularity has produced some poor quality items that contain little or no CoEnzymeQ10.
