Blood Sugar Support provides a range of nutrients, vitamins and botanical extracts to support healthy, normal-range blood sugar levels from multiple angles. This offer is relevant to a huge number of North Americans.
Potent Vitamins and Minerals
Biotin is involved in the body’s glycolysis pathway, and it can support healthy levels of blood glucose and ketone bodies within their normal ranges. Chromium has been broadly associated with healthy, normal-range blood sugar. Some research has linked the two as acting synergistically. Other beneficial vitamins and minerals in Blood Sugar Support include vanadium, manganese and vitamins E & C.
Tropical, Traditional Herbals >
Blood Sugar Support includes a variety of traditional herbal extracts such as Banaba, Guggul, Bitter Melon and Gymnema sylvestre. Besides long and fruitful histories of use in wellness practices across the globe, these ingredients have recently been studied in modern science. Each has evidence suggesting support for healthy blood sugar levels within the normal range.
Support for Healthy HbA1c Levels
Some of the ingredients in the Blood Sugar Support formula have been found to support HbA1c levels within the normal range. HbA1c is a long-term marker of blood glucose that binds to red blood cells.
Banaba Leaf & Guggul
Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa L.) has been used traditionally for many years in Southeast Asia. Its support is thought to be because of the naturally present corosolic acid and ellagitannins. There is growing evidence for the nourishing properties of Banaba leaf for the glucose homeostasis system.
Guggul is a type of tree sap that has been used in India for thousands of years. Preclinical studies have shown that guggul can support blood sugar levels already within the normal range.
Bitter Melon & Cinnamon
Bitter melon is a popular vegetable in Asia and Africa. It has been shown in a randomized, placebo-controlled, single-blinded clinical trial to support blood sugar levels within the normal range.7
In trials, cinnamon has been linked to support of healthy levels of HbA1c in the blood, as well as support for healthy, normal-range blood sugar levels after meals (postprandial glucose). Most trials have used a much higher dose of cinnamon, but the coumarin in cinnamon means high doses are inadvisable.1,8
Gymnema sylvestre & Vanadium
Supplementing with Gymnema sylvestre has been associated with support for both after-meal and fasting blood sugar levels. 9,10
Vanadium, a trace metal probably best known for its engineering applications, is yet another nutritional supplement for the support of blood sugar levels within the normal range.11
