The evening, from 6 p.m., is the best time to exercise if you want to better control your blood sugar level. The study proves that training at the end of the day allows our body to better absorb insulin. One of the reasons is because muscle power is at its peak in the late afternoon, explains Jean-François Gautier, head of the endocrinology department at Lariboisière hospital in Paris. “When it’s done in the afternoon, at the end of the day, we have mitochondrial activity which is much more metabolically interesting.”
“Mitochondria are the engine of the muscle, it’s what makes the muscle work. They have a major effect on insulin sensitivity, so we improve muscle function depending on the time of day. “, he specifies at the microphone of Europe 1. To be even more effective, it is necessary for example to alternate running and sprinting. Jean-François Gautier specifies that the sport practiced in the morning or in the evening remains effective in preventing the development of diabetes.
