Description: Support for Cardiovascular Health.
Key Ingredients: Biotin, An essential B vitamin, meaning humans cannot make their own biotin; therefore, it must be ingested through the diet. Biotin has often been overlooked in the support of healthy blood glucose levels. Biotin has been found to enhance insulin sensitivity and improve glucose and insulin tolerances.
Chromium A key constituent in the molecule known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF). GTF facilitates the uptake of glucose into cells in conjunction with insulin. Research has concluded that non-insulin dependent diabetic patients have a compromised chromium status, when compared to healthy patients.
Gymnema Sylvestr A woody plant that grows in Africa. Its beneficial properties are thought to reside in a group of compounds called gymnemic acids. Gymnema extracts are associated with increased pancreatic function and insulin release.
Lipoic acid Once known as thioctic acid, is considered one of the most versatile antioxidants. Lipoic acid is able to recharge the antioxidants vitamin e, ascorbic acid, and glutathione. Lipoic acid modulates glucose and insulin sensitivities. It also acts as an antioxidant, decreasing oxidative stress, the main stimulus for diabetic complications.
Vanadium has been found to have insulin mimetic properties. It has been used clinically to help manage serum glucose levels.
Cinnamon is widely used for glucose support. The constituents known to give cinnamon its glucose supporting activity are called Type A polymers. In human studies cinnamon has been shown to lower blood sugar and improve insulin resistance. Studies have also found improvements in fasting blood sugar levels after cinnamon supplementation.
