Chromium (as chromium dinicotinate glycinate):
Chromium is a naturally occurring mineral that our body uses to enable the insulin hormone to function properly. By helping insulin bind to cell receptors, it can promote energy storage and regulate blood glucose.
Results revealed that fasting blood glucose level significantly reduced in the subjects consuming chromium by an unbelievable 48%! In this study, subjects went from average of 197.65 to 103.68. In addition, A(1)C values improved significantly from 9.51 to 6.86 indicating better glycemic control. The recommended daily value of chromium for an adult is 120 micrograms (mcg.) and rarely is this amount achieved through an average diet (most adults consume between 20-35 mcg.). There is 120 mcg in your daily serving of Diachieve Sugar Defense.
D-Xylose has been shown to increase the rate of glucose entry into skeletal muscle cells in a non-insulin-dependent manner. During digestion, your body breaks down carbohydrates and simple sugars into glucose, which enters the cells where it can be used for energy. Most common sugars used in virtually all foods today are six carbon sugars, which require insulin for transport into cellular structures. Since people with diabetes are not able to produce enough insulin, the glucose stays in the blood, eventually causing serious health complications. Recently a groundbreaking discovery was made that d-xylose, a five-carbon sugar found in certain fruits actually helped increase the rate of glucose entry into skeletal muscle cells in a non-insulin-dependent manner. Derivatives of d-xylose are being studied for further development as blood sugar lowering drugs for type 2 diabetic patients.
Alpha-Lipoic acid (ALA):
Alpha Lipoic acid was shown to enhance insulin function and glucose transport. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant, naturally produced by the body, whose key function is to neutralize free radicals. This process enhances insulin signaling, helping the body turn glucose into energy. The result is lower blood sugar levels. Another placebo-controlled study confirms previous observations of an increase of insulin sensitivity in type-2 diabetes after administration of ALA. The results suggest that oral administration of alpha-lipoic acid can improve insulin sensitivity in patients with type-2 diabetes.
Gymnema sylvestre (leaf):
Gymnema is a powerful nutrient that can help normalize blood glucose levels and reduce your craving for sweets. Gymnema has been used to treat diabetes for over 2,000 years. It has the ability to enhance the body’s natural production of insulin, and some evidence shows it can decrease cravings for sweets by blocking sugar receptors in the tongue. Clinical research has shown Gymnena to help some patients with Type 2 diabetes be able to reduce their conventional drug dosage and approach their diabetes management with more natural methods. Studies have demonstrated Gymnema to successfully reduce blood sugar in diabetic mice by up to 60% and helped maintain a normal blood sugar level. Other reported benefits from the use of Gymnema are antioxidant properties, cholesterol control, and weight-loss, as well as help with digestion.
Scientists have uncovered the therapeutic properties of bitter melon, a vegetable long used in traditional Chinese medicine, that make it a powerful treatment for Type 2 diabetes. People with Type 2 diabetes have an impaired ability to convert the sugar in their blood into energy in their muscles. This is partly because they don't produce enough insulin, and partly because their fat and muscle cells don't use insulin effectively, a phenomenon known as 'insulin resistance'. Certain compounds in bitter melon appear to activate the enzyme AMPK, a protein well known for regulating fuel metabolism and enabling glucose uptake. Scientists involved in the project, Drs Jiming Ye and Nigel Turner, both stress that while there are well-known diabetes drugs on the market that also activate AMPK, they can have side effects. "The advantage of bitter melon is that there are no known side effects," said Dr Ye. "Practitioners of Chinese medicine have used it for hundreds of years to good effect.".
Banaba Leaf Extract (corisolic acid):
Recent studies have shown that banaba leaf extract can help reduce blood sugar levels by up to 32% in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. It can also effectively help with weight loss and control. In a recent U.S. study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, type 2 diabetic subjects taking 48mg daily (which is also the amount in the recommended daily dosage of Diachieve Sugar Defense) of a 1% corosolic acid formulation exhibited reduced blood sugar levels by almost 32%. It can also effectively help with weight loss and control.
Some of this research has shown that cinnamon may lower blood sugar by decreasing insulin resistance. Studies show that cinnamon can help reduce fasting serum glucose by as much as 29%. When you add Diachieve Sugar Defense to a recommended diet and exercise program, you can effectively lower your blood sugar levels without the harsh side effects associated with medications. If you are already taking medication, your physician can help you add Diachieve to your existing plan. If you have just recently been diagnosed with high blood sugar.or are pre-diabetic, now is a great time to try Diachieve Sugar Defense and possibly avoid ever having to take medication. Start taking control of your blood sugar levels naturally!
