Glucose Support provides Glucosol™, Gymnena, Bitter Melon, Vanadyl & Chromemate® and more to support healthy glucose levels.
Vitamin E- This powerful antioxidant may prove helpful in the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Studies show that vitmai E may play a role in the body's ability to process glucose.
Magnesium- People with diabetes often have low magnesium levels. Magnesium is required for carbohydrate metabolism and influences the release and activity of insulin. An increase in blood glucose levels causes an increase of magnesium reduction in the urine. Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity.
Zinc- This mineral plays a key rols in the regualtion of insulin production by pancreatic tissue and the ability of muscles and fat cells to effectively use glucose. Those deficient in zinc may have impaired insulin secretion and impaired glucose utilization.
Manganese- This mineral is needed in small amounts for a healthy immune system and blood sugar regulation. Manganese deficiency results in abnormal glucose tolerance and impaired insulin metabolism.
Chromium (as polynicotinate)- This essential trace mineral improves the efficiency of insulin, which lowersblood sugar levels and regulates glucose activity.
Glucosol™ (Lagerstroemia Speciosa Leaf Extract)- The active ingredient in this plant is Corosolic acid, a glucose transporter. Glucose transporters are important in regulating the level of intracellular glucose, resulting in lower blood sugar levels in those prone to elevated blood sugar ( diabetics and pre-diabetics).
Bitter melon Fruit Extract- This herb regulates blood sugar levels and improves glucose tolerance. It has been found that a chemical compound in bitter melon called charatin may be more effective that tolbutamide (Orinase), a commonly prescribed drug for diabetes.
Gymnema Sylvestre Stem Extract- This Indian herb regulates blood sugar levels by supporting pancreatic function.
Vanadyl Sulfate- This trace mineral regulates blood sugar levels and corrects blood sugar deficiencies.
Jerusalem Artichoke Fruit Extract- This herb may decrease the need for insulin in diabetics by creating a naturla insulin effect in the body and stabilizing blood sugar. Jerusalem artichokes contain inulin (fructose oligosaccharides), which may be helpful with diabetes. Inulin is the carbohydrate present in Jerusalem artichokes instead of starch.
Fenugreek- This herb reduces cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Components of fenugreek slow the travel time of glucose through the bloodstream, stimulate the pancreas to secrete insulin, and help the body to respond to insulin more effectively.
Milk Thistle- Liver damage may result in some types of diabetes, Milk thistle stimulates the liver so it can take excess insulin out of the bloodstream in type 2 diabetes and diabetes from alcoholic damage. this removal of excess insulin can counteract diabetic mass gain. Milk thistle also decreases ketoacidosid, a complication where the body uses fats, not glucose, for fuel, which may produce severe toxic effects on the central nervous system.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract- Studies hsow that this herb increases pancreatic production and decreases platelet hypersensitivity, a condition found in diabetics. ginkgo has been shown to be useful in treating diabetic neuropathy, the nerve damage resulting from poor circulation to the extremities, which is common in diabetics. Ginkgo also may prevent diabetic retinopathy, an eye disease that can lead to blindnedd.
Bilberry Fruit Extract- This herb is a remedy for diabetes if taken for a prolonged period of time. Bilberry is a source of anthocyanidins, which dilate the blood vessels, and may help with circulatory capillary problems in diabetics.
Alpha Lipoic Acid- This compound, also known as thiotic acid, helps control blood sugar levles and treat preipheral nerve damage in diabetic patients.
Citrus Bioflavonoids- Prevent diabetic-related vascular problems by maintaining strong capillaries. read more below...
