    Glucose metabolic combo for health blood sugar levels

    Glucose Metabolism

    Glucose Metabolic Support herbal combo for healthy blood sugar levels

    Glucose Metabolic Support combines the best glucose-controlling herbs and nutrients which support glucose metabolism as a means of reducing excess weight and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels for the prevention of:
  • type 2 diabetes
  • insulin resistance (Metabolic Syndrome X)
  • age-related loss of insulin sensitivity
  • obesity & body fat storage
  • mood & appetite instability ("carb cravings")
  • Glucose Metabolism & Blood Sugar levels: Glucose is the body's fuel. Without glucose, or without being able to convert it into energy rapidly and efficiently, we cannot survive in good health. So it's very important that our energy-metabolism system works in balance to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. In diabetic conditions, blood glucose levels are elevated due to defective insulin action or production

    Insulin: In response to the rise in blood-glucose levels (say) such as after a meal, the pancreas releases insulin which "mops up" the glucose and carries it to cells that need extra energy, such as muscles and the brain. Without insulin, glucose can’t be absorbed by the cells and remains in the blood at too high a level. Excess glucose is normally stored as glycogen (an "energy reserve") for later use.

    Glucagon: Glucagon is another hormone produced by the pancreas, which serves as a counter-signal to insulin. When the blood sugar begins to fall below normal, glucagon is secreted, to stimulate glycogen breakdown into glucose, even when insulin levels are abnormally high.

    Glucose Metabolism & Weight Loss/Energy: Controlling blood sugar levels may also help support a healthy weight loss diet because of the way it helps the body to handle glucose (the glucose transport activator). Reduction in blood sugar levels causes a natural release of the hormone glucagon. Glucagon stimulates the break down of fat cells to free fatty acids. In addition reduction in blood sugar levels helps prevent fat storage.

    Glucose Metabolic Support & Blood Sugar: Glucose Metabolic Support ingredients have been specifically selected to include only those nutrients, at the highest effective dose, which have been shown scientifically to have beneficial effects on blood sugar levels

  • GlucoFit® (formerly GlucoTrim™) is a patented extract of Crepe Myrtle (Lagerstroemia speciosa L) or banaba leaves containing corosolic acid. This triterpenoid active ingredient is effective in reducing blood glucose levels. Research results indicated that the higher the daily dose of corosolic acids, the greater the drop in blood glucose levels.
  • Gymnema sylvestre: Gymnema is a small plant native to India from Gurmar, which means"sugar destroyer." The leaves of gymnema are thought to increase insulin secretion and extracts of gymnema have been used for centuries by Ayurvedic medical practitioners for glucose metabolism.
  • Chromium Picolinate: Working together with insulin, chromium is a vital part of the body’s natural mechanism for controlling blood sugar levels
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): may help the body establish more healthy blood sugar levels while countering some of the neurological side effects of diabetes. ALA supplementation may also help to prevent the development of hyperglycemia
  • Vanadium: one of its most important actions involves its insulin-like properties and its possible role in supporting diabetes. Some studies have suggested that vanadium compounds help to normalize blood glucose levels in people with both type I and type II diabetes.
  • L-glutamine: one of its most important functions involves the support of cellular energy, growth and repair and may help lower blood sugar levels in diabetics whilst improving nervous disorders associated with diabetes
  • Magnesium: is required for metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats and is also used to support health in people with diabetes
  • Thiamine: Vitamin B-1 plays a major role in converting blood sugar to energy for cells
  • Pantothenic acid: Vitamin B-5 has an important role in metabolism
