What the ingredients do:
Biotin: a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme in the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates.
Chromium: an essential trace mineral that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels. Chromium plays a role in the metabolism of glucose, and is necessary for energy production. Since this mineral assists in the production of insulin, it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and can be beneficial both for people with hypoglycemia and diabetes. It is also critical to the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and proteins.
Gymnema Leaf Extract: Gymnema has been used in India for the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes for over 2,000 years. The hypoglycemic (blood sugar-lowering) action of gymnema leaves was first documented in the late 1920s. This action is attributed to members of a family of substances called gymnemic acids. Gymnema leaves raise insulin levels which may be due to regeneration of the cells in the pancreas that secrete insulin or by increasing the flow of insulin from these cells. Other animal research shows that gymnema can also reduce glucose absorption from the intestine, improve uptake of glucose into cells, and prevent adrenal hormones from stimulating the liver to produce glucose, thereby reducing blood sugar levels.
Lipoic Acid (Alpha Lipoic Acid): As a coenzyme for energy production, alpha-lipoic acid helps transport blood glucose into the cell, thus promoting normal blood sugar balance. This broad-acting water- and lipid-soluble antioxidant uniquely provides intra- and extracellular protection throughout the body. It also helps regenerate other antioxidants, such as vitamins C, E and glutathione. Internal production of alpha-lipoic acid may be insufficient in those with diabetes, liver conditions, and high exposure to toxins. Each tablet is scored for convenience in adjusting the amount taken.
Cinnamon Bark Extract: Studies suggest a beneficial role of cinnamon in blood sugar, insulin, and cholesterol metabolism.
Vanadyl Sulfate: Research suggests that Vanadyl Sulfate plays a unique role in the metabolism of glucose, lipids and bone.
