Blood Sugar Supplement
The body works hard to maintain the right levels of glucose (sugar that fuels the cells' activities) in the blood. When you eat, the body releases insulin, a chemical that tells the cells to open and allows glucose into the cell. Modern diets high in fats and sugars weaken the body's ability to regulate itself. Over time, the body can become resistent to insulin or may stop producing insulin, both of which can imbalance blood sugar levels. OptimHealth Blood Sugar Supplement helps the body maintain blood sugar balance in three ways. It has ingredients that:
- Support normal blood glucose levels
- Support healthy pancreatic cell function
- Supports healthy insulin action
Gymnema Sylvestre extract
This ingredient helps manage sugar cravings, which helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. It also provides nutritional support for pancreatic cell function, which supports the production of insulin.
With 32 active constituents, numerous vitamins, high levels of calcium and beta carotene, bitter melon helps support a healthy insulin response. Bitter melon also contains polypeptides, which are chemically similar to insulin and support healthy blood sugar regulation.
Gotu Kola & Butcher’s Broom
These ingredients improves blood circulation and helps purify the blood.
This ingredient helps support insulin sensitivity, which allows more glucose into the cells. This helps maintain blood sugar levels within the normal range.
This spice helps support normal levels of glucose, triglycerides, LDL and total cholesterol.
Alpha lipoic acid
This antioxidant is found in every cell of the body and has been shown to support healthy glucose levels.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does diet play a role in the ability to stabilize blood sugar? Answer »Yes. Diets high in fats and sugars weaken the body’s ability to regulate glucose levels. Over time, poor diet can make the body resistant to insulin and it can refuse to respond to insulin signals. Poor diet can also reduce the ability to produce insulin, which may result in blood sugar imbalance.
What’s the link between blood sugar and insulin? Answer »Your body fuels your cells with glucose. Glucose travels through your body in the blood stream, but it needs insulin to opens the cells so the glucose can enter them. Minerals, such as chromium, enhance the effectiveness of insulin by allowing more glucose into the cells.
Why is it important to maintain blood sugar within normal levels? Answer »When the body can’t maintain normal blood sugar levels, insulin resistance increases. This causes the body to generate even more insulin in order to get the glucose inside the cells where is can be used as fuel. However, an insulin increase is often interpreted as a threat and the body becomes even more resistant. OptimHealth’s Blood Sugar Support contains gymnema, cinnamon and chromium, which work together to increase the body’s sensitivity to the insulin. Increased sensitivity reduces the need for extra insulin production and helps support healthy blood glucose levels.
Will Type 2 Diabetics benefit from taking OptimHealth's Blood Sugar Support product? Answer »Adults with Type 2 Diabetes have higher than normal glucose levels in their blood and often have decreased sensitivity to insulin. The nutrients in OptimHealth's Blood Sugar Support help the body regulate the amount of glucose in the blood and help the body retain normal insulin sensitivity.
