Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of frequent urination, increased thirst and increased hunger.
Calcium AEP, Magnesium, zinc, selenium, glutathione, Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C, Garlic and Stevia.
Each tablet provides a full 300mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), making this one of the most potent products on the market. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a vitamin-like substance and there has been considerable research and interest in the use of ALA. Our bodies are able to make ALA although a dietary source is still important, and it is found in almost all foods, especially in kidney, liver, spinach and broccoli.
Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
Glucose Control Formula 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.*
Improves the structure of brain cells*
Recent scientific research has pinpointed the nutrients that can maintain neural network function.* Slowing of brain cells is a normal part of aging, but you no longer have to just give up and accept age related memory loss.* Scientists have discovered key growth factors that can nourish and stimulate your brain cells, improving their ability to communicate with each other.*
Jarrow Formulas® Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) 30:1 extract is standardized to contain 80% total Milk Thistle seed flavonoids, including the important Silymarin fractions isosilybinins A and B, silybinins A and B, silychristin and silydianin. This particular group of flavonoids, collectively known as Silymarin, supports liver function by raising protective glutathione levels.
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.
