Blood Sugar Support
Diabetes is a growing epidemic in North American with far-reaching health consequences when it is not adequately controlled. Providing your body with proper blood sugar support can help protect you from developing diabetes in the first place. There are effective blood sugar support supplements that can be used in combination with lifestyle adjustments that can help achieve this. One of the most important blood sugar support supplements is a Vitamin B complex.+ Read more >
Vitamin B6 levels in particular drop after the age of 50, which is often when people are diagnosed as pre-diabetic or diabetic. Other members of the vitamin B family including B1, B3 and B12 have also been shown to help regulate and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. There is increasing research that shows Vitamin D is helpful in preventing both Type I and Type II diabetes, making it important to include it as part of your blood sugar support supplements program. Essential fatty acids, Omega-3 fatty acids in particular, help to improve glucose tolerance in addition to helping lower cholesterol and support the cardiovascular system. Chromium picolinate is an essential trace mineral that helps insulin function more effectively in metabolizing blood sugars. Taking blood sugar support supplements that include chromium can help prevent a chromium deficiency, which contributes to age-related diabetes onset. Cinnamon extract is a nutritional blood sugar support supplement that works as an antioxidant as well as supporting healthy blood sugar functioning. Adding a low-sugar protein supplement helps slow the digestion of carbohydrates, creating more even sugar levels in the body over the course of the day. With depleted soil for farming and increased consumption of fast foods contributing to poor diets, many people do not have enough fibre in their diets. Consider adding a fibre supplement, along with increased water intake, to help stabilize blood sugar fluctuations. Reducing the amount of red meat in your diet, focusing on lean poultries and a whole food diet with balanced fruits and vegetables will also help provide the body with the nutritional support it needs to prevent diabetes. There is also evidence to show that avoiding food that you have intolerances to helps reduce inflammation that can result in destruction of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Combining healthy lifestyle choices with blood sugar support supplements can help you to avoid developing diabetes and lead to better overall health.

Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
R(+) SR is the natural form of this vital antioxidant. It is the sole form produced in the body for use in the mitochondria. All lipoic acids including conventional "lipoic acid" or "alpha lipoic acid" supplements are only 50% R(+)-lipoic acid; the other half of such supplements is the artificial S(-)-enantiomer. The one feature limiting all lipoic acids is the extremely short plasma half life of around 22 minutes. R(+) SR is specially formulated with a more bioavailable salt form than the conventional "alpha lipoic acid" or R+ Lipoic acid and is more stable to heat and moisture making it more resistant to polymerization. In addition, R(+)SR is formulated in a special matrix to provide a sustained release guaranteed for 8-10 hours. Two to three capsules of R(+)SR provides a 24 hour coverage of this important and versatile antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an extraordinary antioxidant. Unfortunately, its effectiveness has been limited on two fronts. Firstly, supplemental lipoic acid has been manufactured with the R+ and S- enantiomers - two molecules with the same chemical formula but with different structures. The R+ form is naturally occurring and the beneficial effects of alpha lipoic acid come from the R+ isomer. The S+ form however is artificial, a byproduct of the manufacturing process and is harmful because it is thought to prevent the utilization of the R+ enantiomer. This is especially detrimental with ALA because the molecule has a very short half-life in the body, estimated at 22 minutes; the second shortcoming of this molecule. The solution is, in theory, simple. To reap the full benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid, an R+ sustained release formula would be ideal and would offer continual resistance against free radicals and prolonged insulin sensitivity in diabetics.

Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid that offers exceptional protection to the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation. It is 550 times more potent than Vitamin E in this role, and 40 times more potent than beta-carotene in quenching singlet oxygen free radicals. Studies have shown astaxanthin to be effective for ocular, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.

Chromium Picolinate is trivalent chromium in a bidendate chelate with picolinic acid, an intermediary in the biosynthesis of nicotinamide from tryptophan. Research suggests that chromium picolinate - rather than a polynicotinate form or an ill-characterized niacin-containing "Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF)" - is the natural chelate of chromium in living things. Chromium picolinate supports healthy glucose metabolism in persons with impaired insulin function.

Glycine is the simplest of all amino acids required for protein synthesis in the body. Research supports a role for glycine in supporting a wide range of bodily structures and functions, including release of somatotropin (human growth hormone), memory function, healthy thought patterns, collagen synthesis, normal cell growth and development, glucose metabolism after a carbohydrate load, and preventing unhealthy angiogenesis (blood vessel formation).

Pantethine, a biological metabolite of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), is a precursor to Coenzyme A, a critical factor in cellular energy production, Phase II detoxification, and the biosynthesis of numerous important orthomolecules (including sex and adrenal hormones and some neurotransmitters). Extensive research supports a role for Pantethine in supporting healthy lipoprotein balance.
