Sugar/Glucose Metabolism Factors™
Supports sugar metabolism and the production of insulin by the pancreas. Provides ingredients for the nourishment and protection of the cardiovascular system, the liver and the pancreas and to help balance acidity in the bloodstream. It also provides support for the thyroid and adrenal glands.
Thiamin and Niacin – B vitamins that help the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats; both are needed as catalysts for important energy molecules.
Vanadium – animal studies have shown that vanadyl sulfate can potentiate insulin.
Chromium – A mineral humans require in trace amounts.
Gymnema – Asian herb used for supporting glucose/sugar metabolism.
Vitamin C is a cellular antioxidant and this function is protective at the cell membrane level. Insulin also mediates the transport of Vitamin C into cells. Along with niacin, helps chromium to be better absorbed.
Manganese – The antioxidant enzyme system Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) located in mitochondrial membranes uses manganese at its active site.
Calcium and Magnesium – both help to neutralize acidity in the body.
Zinc – helps in the synthesis, storage and secretion of insulin and proper function of pancreatic islets cells.
Nopales – (Opuntia, Prickly pear cactus) contains fiber and pectin, a soluble fiber and complex carbohydrate.
Cedar Berry and Blueberry Leaf – Traditionally used for support of the pancreas.
Liver Function Support
Milk Thistle – helps to stimulate liver cells.
Pantothenic Acid – supports the adrenals for good communication with the liver.
Iodine – supports thyroid for all energy processes including the basal metabolic rate (how fast or slow a person’s metabolism operates).
Acidity – sugar can over-acidify the tissues.
Glutamine – the main small intestine gluconeogenic (glucose producing) substrate is glutamine; provides glucose for the nourishment of the small intestinal cells and also for the cells of the kidneys. May help eliminate craving for sugar.
