We can supply many natural formulas as detailed below to support blood sugar levels and diabetes. Consider Chromium as this is shown to promote healthy energy levels as will as promoting healthy glucose tolerance. Optimum D, a multi-nutrient blend, is also specially formulated with an emphasis on nutrients to help support healthy blood glucose levels
Zinc is essential for many vital enzymatic processes
Research shows that zinc is one of the most important nutrients involved in maintaining skin, hormonal, immune and reproductive health. BioCare’s Zinc Citrate utilises the well absorbed citrate form of zinc to enhance absorption. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, pregnant women & breastfeeding mothers.
Key nutrients involved in managing glucose levels
The low GI diet aims to reduce or regulate blood sugar levels for sustained energy and fat metabolism. SucroGuard® is a blend of key nutrients involved in managing glucose levels and ensuring the cells are provided with energy. Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.
Chromium levels may decline with increasing age
Nutrisorb liquid minerals are ideal for those with absorption difficulties or for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. Nutrisorb Chromium is a bio-available yeast-free form of chromium. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, children, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers & veterinary use.
May assist in maintaining normal cholesterol levels
Cholesterase provides vitamin B3, bromelain and beta sitosterol. These nutrients in conjunction with a low fat diet, may assist in maintaining normal cholesterol levels. Cholesterase also contains chromium which is involved in glucose metabolism. Suitable for vegetarians.
A simple non-invasive test
Zincatest® is a simple non-invasive test, which gives an indication of zinc status. It can also be given as a zinc supplement and because it is in liquid form it is ideal for those who find zinc in tablet or capsule form difficult to swallow.
PreMenstrual Complex provides nutrients that work together to help maintain balanced hormones and healthy glucose metabolism in the days leading up to menstruation. 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.
