USE: supports normal glucose function
Diabetics and others with impaired glucose tolerance are highly susceptible to the tissue-damaging effects of advanced protein glycation, a process that occurs when blood sugar reacts with body proteins. This results in various accumulated destructive effects on blood vessels, nerves, and the lens of the eye.
To minimize the potential for such reactions and provide focused support for insulin function, this Diabetic Formula supplies a potent mix of nutrients and botanicals that aggressively and most efficiently support normal glucose metabolism, interrupt the glycation process, and provide antioxidant protection against tissue damage. Use with one of the multiple vitamin/mineral supplements for expanded benefit. Biotin- supports blood sugar breakdown (metabolism) and slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream. In several studies, biotin supplementation has been shown to enhance the performance of insulin, the hormone that plays a critical role in helping your body incorporate blood sugar.
Chromium polynicotinate- promotes formation of Glucose Tolerance Factore (GTF) needed for proper insulin function and control of blood sugar and fats. Vanadyl Sulfate- encourages normal blood sugar metabolism by supporting liver function and insulin release. Regarding Vanadium - Type 1 diabetics had decreased insulin requirements during the treatment period. Hemoglobin A1c levels were decreased by 10% on average in both groups. Alpha- Lipoic Acid- assists safe disposal of excess blood sugar and helps prevent formation of damaging effects of elevated glucose. Several studies suggest that treatment with ALA may help reduce pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in people who have nerve damage (called peripheral neuropathy) caused by diabetes.
Alpha-lipoic acid has been used for years for this purpose in Europe. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine- reduces oxidative stress (toxic effects)and helps prevent damage to the pancreatic cells. Glucosal- helps maintain proper transport of glucose into cells. Gymnema Sylvestre- assists regeneration and repair of pancreatic beta cells and helps reduce intestinal glucose absorption In a study conducted by Diabetes Educators, under the protocols established by Diabetes in Control and Informulab of Omaha, NE, the makers of Beta Fast GXR, Gymnema Sylvestre was found to lower HbA1c from 10.1% to 9.3% Gymnema Sylvestre (Beta Fast GXR) supplementation also lowered the 2-hour postprandial plasma glucose concentrations, by 13 percent (207 vs. 180mg/dl).
