If you’re overweight, obese, pre-diabetic, or already diabetic, then it’s a daily concern of yours to worry about your blood sugar, and you probably already know that too much blood sugar…
Diacetinol™ Contains Chromium for a Very Good Reason!
90% of Americans are Chromium deficient. Chromium is needed to make insulin work right. Balanced blood sugar, fewer sugar cravings, and fewer energy crashes. That’s why chromium has been added.
Chromium is known to enhance the action of insulin, a hormone critical to the metabolism and storage of carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the body. In 1957, a compound in brewers’ yeast was found to prevent an age-related decline in the ability of rats to maintain normal levels of sugar (glucose) in their blood. Chromium was identified as the active ingredient in this so-called “glucose tolerance factor” in 1959.
Chromium also appears to be directly involved in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Understand, trace amounts are needed and 67 mcg to each capsule to aid in the blood glucose balancing act. Chromium in large quantities are known as “industrial pollutants”. Buy Now.
We added Banaba Leaf extract to Diacetinol™
Know for thousands of years to the peoples of the Philippines, India and the people of south Asia. Scientists say that the high concentration of corosolic acid stimulates glucose transport to the cells. Type II Diabetes occurs when the body loses sensitivity to insulin and the sugar remains in the blood instead of moving into cells to be used as energy. Corosolic acid moves the blood sugar out of the blood and into cells. Oh, there is a side effect I should tell you about: Banaba Leaf extract helps you lose weight. Banaba has been used in the Philippines for blood sugar control for millenia. Buy Now.
Guggal is contained in Diacetinol™
We’ve added Guggal an ayurvedic herb from India that has been used for thousands of years for heart ailments. Produced from the resin of the Indian Myrrh tree, it also has been shown to reduce cholesterol. High cholesterol, being an indicator in and of itself for heart disease also complicates the metabolic systems dealing with the utilization of blood sugar. Buy Now.
Bitter Melon is contained in Diacetinol™
Three independent studies have shown that bitter melon, used in South America and India has a positive effect on blood serum glucose levels. And helps to “balance” insulin in your body.
In fact, there are 20 proven ingredients in Diacetinol™
There is a profound synergy in the blend of herbs and vitamins that will give you the results you are looking for.
Finally, science is revealing some of the best nutrients for blood sugar support: Doctors have discovered that in addition to diet and exercise, there are certain nutrients that can help to support your blood sugar levels. This formula provides comprehensive support for healthy blood sugar.
- Increases risk for heart disease. Diabetes makes larger blood vessels more susceptible to heart attacks and strokes. “Seventy percent of people with diabetes die of cardiovascular disease,” says Hertzel Gerstein, director of the division of endocrinology & metabolism at McMaster Universtiy in Hamilton.
- Makes it almost impossible for you to lose weight: diets and exercise seem to have little or no effect.
- Drains you of energy, always feeling tired, sluggish, unable to focus for more than a few minutes at a time.
- Causes anxiety and stress, affecting memory, mood, relationships.
- New medical research warns that too much sugar reduces your immunity by up to 92 percent.
That’s a big problem for most people. But it doesn’t have to be for you. Why? Doctors and scientists have unlocked nature’s secrets for promoting healthy blood sugar, glucose and insulin—and boosting your health to new heights.
Whether you are overweight, obese, pre-diabetic or diabetic, Cinnamon helps–a lot! That’s why we added it to Diacetinol™.
A high blood glucose level raises the risk for diabetic complications. The best way to avoid diabetic complications is to maintain a normal blood glucose level. A healthy Diabetes blood glucose level is below 110 mg/dl or 6.1 mml/l depending on whether you are using the US scale or international scale. An acceptable blood glucose level is 140 mg/dl (US) or 7.8 (international) two hours after eating.
Diabetics have to be concerned with more than just high blood glucose levels. Diabetics also have to be concerned with a diet to lower cholesterol. High cholesterol raises the risk for heart disease. Diabetics are at much higher risk for heart disease than the general population. So it is important to include food to lower cholesterol. A good diet to lower cholesterol should also be one to lower high blood glucose levels. Cinnamon as been shown to be a food that lowers cholesterol, and helps lower high blood glucose levels.
Type 2 diabetes arises when the body loses sensitivity to insulin, a hormone that shuttles the sugars from food into body cells to be used for energy. As a result, the amount of sugar, or glucose, in the blood remains high, leading to fatigue and blurred vision. Over the long term, high blood glucose level can increase the risk of heart disease, kidney failure and blindness.
For people with diabetes, the less glucose level in blood, and cholesterol in the body the better. You can see why it is so important to maintain a normal blood glucose level.
In the study done by Dr. Richard A. Anderson of the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center in Maryland, diabetics who incorporated one gram (equivalent to less than one-quarter teaspoon) of cinnamon per day for 40 days into their normal diets experienced a decrease in high blood glucose level, cholesterol and blood fats. That means cinnamon is also a way to lower cholesterol naturally According to study author Dr. Richard A. Anderson, “Diabetics could add a dash of cinnamon to their morning servings of coffee, orange juice or cereal. You can also make a cinnamon tea by simply boiling water with stick cinnamon.” The current findings suggest that a small amount of cinnamon can help protect diabetics from these and other potential complications of their condition. Cinnamon may also help stave off the onset of type 2 diabetes in people at risk of the condition.
During the study, Anderson and his colleagues at the USDA Agricultural Research Center asked 60 people with type 2 diabetes to consume 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon each day for 40 days, or the equivalent amount of wheat flour, as a placebo. Both the cinnamon and wheat flour were administered in capsule form. Reporting in the journal Diabetes Care, Anderson and his team found that all cinnamon-takers experienced a drop in blood levels of glucose, fats and cholesterol by up to 30 percent. No change was seen in the people taking placebo capsules. Anderson explained that cinnamon contains compounds that help make insulin more efficient, improving the hormone’s ability to bring glucose to the cells that need it.
As an added bonus, cinnamon contains virtually no calories, allowing diabetics to add zest to their meals without adding to their waistlines. Cinnamon contains less than 3 calories per gram, negligible in the total dietary intake. Previous research has shown that cinnamon appears to help fat cells recognize and respond to insulin. In test tube and in animal studies, the spice increased glucose metabolism by about 20 times.
We added Gymnema Sylvestre to Diacetinol™
Gymnema sylvestre R.Br. is a herb native to the tropical forests of southern and central India where it has been used as a naturopathic treatment for diabetes for nearly two thousand years. Literally, the Hindi name Gurmar means “Sugar Destroyer”
Sanskrit Name : Meshasringi, Madhinasini or madhoolika,
Tamil and Malayalam Name: Sirukurinchaan, Amudhapushpam, Chakkarakkolli.
Gymnemic acids have antidiabetic, antisweetener and anti-inflammatory activities. The antidiabetic array of molecules has been identified as a group of closely related gymnemic acids after it was successfully isolated and purified from the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre. Later, the phytoconstituents of Gymnema sylvestre were isolated, and their chemistry and structures were studied and elucidated.
Use as herbal medicine
While it is still being studied, and the effects of the herb are not entirely known, the herb has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels when used for an extended period of time. Additionally, Gymnema reduces the taste of sugar when it is placed in the mouth, thus some use it to fight sugar cravings. From extract of the leaves were isolated glycosides known as Gymnemic acids, which exhibit anti-sweet activity.
This effect, however, is short-lived, lasting a mere fifteen minutes. Some postulate that the herb actually reduces cravings for sugar by blocking sugar receptors in the tongue, but no scientific studies have supported this hypothesis. It is currently being used in an all natural medication for diabetes with other ingredients such as cinnamon, chromium, zinc, biotin, banaba, huckleberry and bitter melon.
The active ingredient is thought to be gurmenic acid which has structure similar to saccharose. Extracts of Gymnema is not only claimed to curb sweet tooths but also for treatment of as varied problems as hyperglycemia, obesity, high cholesterol levels, anemia and digestion. According to the Sushruta of the Ayurveda it helps to treat Madhumeha ie glycosuria.
In 2005, a study made by King’s College, London, United Kingdom, showed that a water-soluble extract of Gymnema Sylvestre, caused reversible increases in intracellular calcium and insulin secretion in mouse and human ß-cells when used at a concentration (0.125 mg/ml) without compromising cell viability. Hence forth these data suggest that extracts derived from Gymnema Sylvestre may be useful as therapeutic agents for the stimulation of insulin secretion in individuals with T2DM. Buy Now.
