Contains nutrients to support the digestion, nervous system and energy levels. Also provides vitamins and minerals to help reduce cravings. Starflower Oil and True Food® Natural Vitamin E are also recommended.
For healthy glucose & lipid metabolism
When blood sugar runs low, appetite is generated and, when it is high, the body lays down more fat. Here we provide the full organic molecule of bio-transformed™ GTF (glucose tolerance factor) Chromium, plus co-factors which support insulin action and maintain healthy carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. A True Food® Supernutrition Plus multivitamin is also recommended.
Blood sugar control nutrients
Multi-Guard® Control has been formulated specially to help the body maintain a more even balance of its energy reserves between meals. The formula provides 26 nutrients at relevant levels including per daily dose, 200µg of GTF chromium which is probably the better known of all the blood sugar (glucose) control nutrients. Also included is magnesium since it is a component of many enzymes involved in the breakdown of blood sugar and acts as a ‘secondary messenger’ for the activity of insulin at the cellular membrane level.
(Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation)
The element chromium is a naturally-occurring mineral. Chromium picolinate is a nutritional supplement, formed by the combination of chromium and picolinic acid. Chromium picolinate has been found to be helpful in enhancing insulin function, helping with fat loss by reducing food cravings and appetite, aiding with muscle mass production, reducing cholesterol levels and helping to combat acne. This nutritional product has also been enhanced with its own synergistic complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods, called MAGNIFOOD. Magnifood ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body's biochemical environment, in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product's ingredients.
A synthetic fat-soluble form of thiamine (Vitamin B1)
Benfotiamine (technically known as s-benzoylthiamine-o-monophosphate) is a synthetic fat-soluble form of thiamine (Vitamin B1). It is highly effective at increasing plasma and cellular levels of thiamine diphosphate (TDP). TDP is the metabolically active coenzyme form of B1. Human, animal and cell studies show that benfotiamine reduces formation of advanced glycosylation end products. (AGEs) that crosslink body proteins such as collagen, rendering them structurally and functionally ineffective. AGE’s increase with high blood sugar and aging, and are involved in the pathogenesis of many of the diseases of aging, including atherosclerosis, arthritis, and cataracts.
Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
GluControl™ is a clinically formulated blend of nutrients designed to be used along with a balanced diet to support healthy blood sugar levels.* Vitamin C (fat and water soluble forms); natural vitamin E (both d-alpha and mixed tocopherol); N-acetyl-cysteine, the ‘ready-to-work’ form of the amino acid cysteine and the proven plant favorite, quercetin, provide widespread cellular protection. These antioxidant nutrients protect healthy blood vessels and promote circulation and capillary integrity. The standardized herbal extracts of cinnamon (CinSulin®), bitter melon and goats rue, help maintain metabolic balance. These herbs have been used for centuries and, more recently, boast positive results in clinical research trials. And vanadium, from vanadyl sulfate, continues to be investigated for its metabolic role as a trace mineral.*
Developed with assistance from Dr. Richard Anderson
CinSulin® is a water soluble cinnamon extract, developed with assistance from noted cinnamon researcher Dr. Richard Anderson. The makers of CinSulin® recommend a total daily intake of 250mg.
A CUTTING-EDGE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT
Resveratrol is a phytonutrient found in the skin of red grapes, in red wine, in Japanese knotweed, and also in cocoa powder, baking chocolate, dark chocolate, peanuts, and mulberry skin in low levels. It occurs naturally in two forms: cis-resveratrol and trans-resveratrol. Trans-resveratrol is much more bioactive and clinically beneficial than cis-resveratrol. As a cutting-edge nutritional supplement, resveratrol has seen great success in a number of studies in mice and rats; it has anti-inflammatory properties, supports healthy blood sugar levels, and greatly benefits the cardiovascular system.
Supporting immune function & blood sugar
Samento is a proprietary extract of Uncaria tomentosa, also known as Cat’s Claw, in an easy-to-take, full-spectrum liquid extract. It’s the pentacyclic (POA) form of Cat’s Claw that has been shown to support immune function, and Samento delivers these pentacyclic constituents, certified free of TOA (tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids).* Samento also contains a variety of triterpenes and polyphenols, which demonstrate powerful immune modulating and blood sugar-balancing abilities. Liquid Samento Extract has also been proven to be an effective inflammation balancer in a number of studies.
L-Glutamine Easy-Solv® Tablets. L-Glutamine - the most abundant amino acid in the human body - is involved in many metabolic processes, including the synthesis and protection of muscle tissue, the production of glycogen, as well as immune support during periods of immune and muscular stress.
A formula designed to support glucose homeostasis. Provides Glucevia™, a patented extract from the seeds/fruits of European Ash (Fraxinus excelsior), which safely supports healthy blood sugar levels. The formula is enhanced with berberine, chromium, milk thistle, resveratrol, and biotin.
Blood sugar can surge to high levels following meals. Chlorogenic acid has been shown to inhibit excess activity of glucose-6-phosphatase, thus supporting healthy after-meal glucose levels. Neutralizing excess glucose-6-phosphatase is essential for most people to achieve optimal glucose control.
Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine), can easily penetrate into the inside of cells. It is also more bioavailable than the water-soluble thiamine. Overall, benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and promote healthy blood glucose levels in those already within normal range. Benfotiamine also helps maintain healthy endothelial function and supports the health of the nerves, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels, and heart.
