Blood Sugar Support
Is Your Blood Sugar Well Controlled?
There isn’t anything more important for your health than proper blood sugar control. Without it many bodily systems malfunction -- proper digestion doesn’t occur and the immune system isn’t able to ward off infections. In addition, without good blood sugar control you cannot protect yourself from advanced glycolytic end products (AGEs). AGEs are proteins or lipids (fats) that attach to a sugar after exposure to sugar (glycolation). The amount of glycolation depends on the amount of sugar present, and the amount of time it takes to utilize blood sugar. AGEs are the basis for Alzheimers, Parkinson’s and most cancers, so reducing their production is important for a long and healthy life!
Why Doctor’s Optimum Superior Blood Sugar Control?
If you want the healthy outcomes of excellent blood sugar metabolism – healthy nerve function, kidney function, vascular health, and reduced AGEs – this product is for you. Doctor’s Optimum Superior Blood Sugar Control was formulated with some of the top nutritional ingredients to support AGE inhibition.
The main ingredient is the fat-soluble vitamin benfotiamine. While other forms are not fat-soluble, ours is, which means it is more bioavailable to be quickly activated for blood sugar support. Benfotiamine supports the body by blocking the biochemical pathways through which high blood sugar damages cells. In Europe, benfotiamine has been utilized for decades to reduce the negative impacts of high blood sugar.
In select studies benfotiamine has demonstrated the following:
- Helps support normal peripheral circulation;
- May reduce discomfort and dysfunction, helping to maintain a healthy nervous system while protecting against the oxidative stress in the brain caused by AGE’s;
- Supports normal kidney function;
- Maintains normal endothelial function by reducing AGE’s, and aids in overall cardiovascular health.
B6, ALA’s, & Proanthocyanidins
Doctor’s Optimum Superior Blood Sugar Control also has several other key ingredients that make it one of the top nutritional products for blood sugar. This proprietary formula includes Vitamin B6 and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), grape seed extract, MegaNatural BP and pine bark extracts. The latter three ingredients belong to a group called proanthocyanidins. These powerhouses neutralize free radicals, support blood sugar metabolism, and help support blood vessel strength and structure. They have also been shown to decrease inflammation, support healthy nerve and kidney function, and increase peripheral circulation. MegaNatural BP extract contains over 90% proanthocyanidins to help maintain normal arterial function and endothelial function.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) has been shown to ease peripheral nerve pain, especially in those individuals with pyridoxine deficiency. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) is the active form of pyridoxine that your body utilize directly.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is one of the most researched products for blood sugar regulation, especially a product for peripheral nerve function. ALA can help stabilize nitric oxide to support increase endothelial nitric oxide levels and maintain elactacity and pliability of the arteries and smaller vessels, arteriols. ALA also plays a role in the reduction of peroxidized lipids.
Recommended Daily Use: Take one capsule, twice daily, or as recommended by a healthcare professional. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children.
More About Blood Sugar
What is hypoglycemia?
Hypoglycemia is known as low blood sugar where the blood sugar, glucose, decreases below normal. This can lead to a variety of symptoms such as confusion, clumsiness, trouble talking, loss of consciousness, seizures and death. A feeling of hunger, sweating, and shakiness may be present. Because of this, most people with hypoglycemia return to normal with an influx of sugar foods. The result often is in higher glycemic levels leading to AGEs. The blood test known as hemoglobin A1C is required to see it significance and use for blood sugar stabilizing nutrition or medication.
What is hyperglycemia?
This is opposite of hypoglycemia and a condition where there is a higher concentrate of blood sugar the normal in the blood plasma. The American Diabetes Association considers A1C test above 7 to be diabetic and can produce organ damage. Over a period of years this can lead to kidney, neurological, and cardiovascular damage. Frequent hunger, thirst, fatigue, blurred vision, poor wound healing, dry mouth, itchy skin, tingling in the feet or heels, erective dysfunction, recurrent infections, cardiac arrhythmia’s, and seizures are some of the symptoms associated with hyperglycemia.
