BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT
Advanced Blood Sugar Regulation Formula Synergistic Minerals, Herbs, and Vitamins
BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT (formerly Diabetes Support Formula) is recommended on NaturalNews.com, the health education site of the “Health Ranger” Mike Adams!
BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT is an advanced, next generation blood sugar regulation and reduction formula providing a synergistic blend of nutrients proven to help the body control blood sugar.
Blood Sugar Support contains Gymnema sylvestre standardized extract, Pterocarpus marsupium standardized extract, bitter melon extract, alpha-lipoic acid, whole grape extract, magnesium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1, Vitamin A, zinc, manganese, biotin, vanadium, chromium, copper, and Bioperine® (black pepper extract). Blood Sugar Support is contained in a vegetarian capsule and contains no dicalcium phosphate or magnesium stearate.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
Gymnema sylvestre extracts have shown positive clinical results in both Type I and Type II diabetes. Evidence from animal and human studies indicates that Gymnema sylvestre extracts accomplish glucose control by regeneration of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. In a study on Type I diabetes patients given Gymnema, insulin requirements and fasting blood glucose were reduced and blood sugar control improved. A study done with Type II diabetics demonstrated improved blood sugar control and either reduced or eliminated need for oral hypoglycemic drugs.
Pterocarpus marsupium demonstrates cell protective and regenerative properties, as well as blood glucose lowering activity. These effects have been reproduced in numerous animal and human trials. In these studies, Pterocarpus marsupium reversed damage to the beta cells. The result was the almost complete restoration of normal insulin secretion. Pterocarpus marsupium has an insulin-like activity that is completely separate from the stimulation of insulin production from the repair of beta cells.
Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) contains several components with confirmed anti-diabetic properties. Charantin is a hypoglycemic agent composed of mixed steroids that has insulin-like properties similar to oral hypoglycemic drugs. Oral administration of bitter melon extracts have shown good results in clinical trials with Type II diabetes patients.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid functions as a coenzyme in the body's processes that convert blood sugar into energy and has been used at high levels (i.e., greater than 100 mg) with diabetics to control blood sugar levels. Alpha-lipoic acid also reduces the protein damage caused by high blood sugar due both to its antiglycation action and its powerful antioxidant properties. It has been used for more than 35 years to control the secondary complications of diabetes, including damage to the retina, cataract formation, and nerve and heart damage.
VinCare® grape extract (from seeds, skins, and pulp) provides for connective tissue strengthening (e.g., of blood vessels), and is an anti-inflammatory substance, and a powerful antioxidant. It thereby can help prevent many secondary complications of diabetes.
Magnesium plays a critical role in cellular energy production and utilization and has been shown to be deficient in diabetics.
Vitamin B6 offers significant protection against the development of diabetic nerve disease, inhibits the glycoslyation of proteins, and synergistically works with magnesium.
Vitamin B1 plays a key role in the conversion of blood sugar into energy. Biotin is an important cofactor in the conversion of glucose into energy and at higher levels has resulted in the significant lowering of fasting blood sugar levels.
Zinc is involved in virtually all aspects of insulin metabolism, including synthesis, secretion, and utilization, as well as exhibits a protective effect against beta-cell destruction.
Manganese is a cofactor in many enzyme systems involved in blood sugar control and energy metabolism.
Studies have found that when people with diabetes were given Vanadium, they developed an increase in insulin sensitivity and could decrease their insulin requirements.
Chromium is needed to make glucose tolerance factor, which improves insulin function.
Copper appears to offer some help against diabetes and may also improve wound healing.
Vitamin A is needed for eye support and therefore may help to control secondary complications of diabetes.
Bioperine® is a black pepper extract that enhances the absorption of nutrients by 30-60%, thereby increasing the uptake and synergy of the nutrients in this very unique formula.
Blood Sugar Support will be most effective when taken in conjunction with foundational core supplement formulas supporting metabolism, including Multi Two and Mighty Multi-Vite!, Omega Plus and Essential Fats Plus E, Complete E, and PRO-C™ (our Vitamin C antioxidant formula).
