Possible Benefits of Sugar Balance, a Dietary Supplement
One Capsule Contains:
Niacin .......................................... 10 mg
As a dietary supplement, 1 capsule three times daily before meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Sugar Balance Formula is a unique formula-tion to support blood sugar within normal levels.* It utilizes vitamins, key minerals, and a proprietary mixture of herbal extracts and nutraceuticals to enhance the uptake, transport and metabolism of glucose in the body.*
Chromium is a trace mineral that plays an essential role in normal carbohydrate metabolism and glucose tolerance.* Chromium supports insulin receptor formation, insulin receptor phosphorylation, and insulin binding.* The result is the potentiation of insulin and increased insulin sensitivity.* Chromium may also support glucose tolerance by decreasing hepatic extraction of insulin.* Chromium polynicotinate is the preferred form of chromium because Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) is generally considered to include chromium bound to nicotinic acid.* Vanadyl sulfate is a biologically active form of vanadium, a trace mineral that mimics the action of the hormone insulin. Studies suggest that vanadyl may support blood sugar within normal levels.* Niacin is involved with the functioning of hundreds of enzymes. It facilitates the production of cellular energy, and plays a role in cardiovascular health.*
Gymnema contains active glycosides that compete with sweet substances for receptor sites.* Fenugreek contains steroidal sapoge-nins and coumarins, but its most prominent component is its gelatinous mucilage. Studies suggest that both gymnema and fenugreek may enhance endogenous insulin activity and support blood sugar within normal levels, as well as generally support healthy circulation.* Gymnema may also have dental-health-supporting qualities.*
Cinnamon and Bitter Melon have been studied extensively for their support of blood sugar and glucose metabolism within normal levels.* Both also have antioxidant activity.* Cinnamon contains a water-soluble polyphenol compound called MHCP, which activates insulin receptors and works synergistically with insulin in cells.* By enhancing insulin function, cinnamon supports healthy circu-lation and blood lipids within normal levels.*
Banaba (Lagerstroemia speciosa) leaves contain corosolic acid, a triterpenoid that helps regulate blood sugar within normal levels by supporting glucose metabolism and activating glucose transport and uptake.* Recent studies suggest that corosolic acid alone may not account for the glucose transport effect of Banaba, and a study reported in Planta Medica (Feb. 2002) identified at least three other active components.* White kidney bean extract contains an alpha-amylase inhibitor that has undergone randomized clinical tests at the University of Scranton, PA, and demonstrated some starch-blocking ability.*
Jambolan seeds contains jamboline, which potentially may inhibit the excessive conversion of starch into sugar.* In animal and human studies jambolan supported blood glucose within normal levels.* Neem contains bitters, quercetin and ss-sitosterol. It has microbial balancing activity, and studies suggest it may support blood sugar within normal levels.*
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is the "universal" antioxidant, being both fat-soluble and water-soluble. ALA provides antioxidant protection throughout the body, and enhances the effectiveness of other antioxidants, regenerating vitamins C and E. ALA also facilitates the production of energy in cells, and provides powerful support for the detoxification processes of the liver, the function of the eyes, and support of blood glucose within normal levels.* Green Tea contains polyphenols that can enhance the strength and permeability of blood vessel walls.* Green tea has antioxidant properties, and also supports the immune system.* It potentially may enhance the function of the liver, kidney, circulatory system, and support dental health.*
Cayenne Pepper has found use as a gastrointestinal and circulatory tonic. It contains capsaicin, known to have antioxidant properties and effects on nerves.* Guggul tree resin contains diterpene compounds, gugulsterones and guggulsterols. Studies and clinical use suggest guggul supports healthy circulation.* Bilberry is well known for its support of eye function, especially night vision.* Bilberry contains bioflavonoid anthocyanosides, which help regulate vascular permeability, support capillary wall strength, and provide antioxidant protection.*
Turmeric contains antioxidant curcuminoids, which can both neutralize existing free radicals in the body, and reduce the formation of new oxidants.* L-carnitine is required to release energy from fat, transporting fatty acids into mitochondria.* Black Pepper contains piperine, a natural bioavailability enhancer that has been shown to improve the uptake and utilization of nutrients.*
No adverse side effects have been reported.
Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.
