Glucose Metabolic Support - 90 Caps
 

  • Superior Formula with GlucoFit
  • Supports Glucose Metabolism
  • Minimizes Sweet Cravings

Glucose Metabolic Support contains GlucoFit, a dietary ingredient extracted from the herb Lagestroemia speciosa. GlucoFit's active component, corosolic acid, has shown in scientific studies to support healthy glucose metabolisim. We have also included an extract from the herb Gymnema sylvestre, a small plant native to India. Extracts of Gymnema have been used for centuries by Ayurvedic herbalists for the support of glucose metabolism.

Chromium is an essential trace mineral that works with insulin to support healthy blood glucose levels and plays an important role in the proper utilization of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Chromium increases insulin sensitivity, leading to increased numbers of insulin receptors and greater binding of insulin to cells. Chromium helps insulin to metabolize fat, turn protein into muscle and convert sugar into energy.

Vanadium plays a significant role in the metabolism of carbohydrates. It also plays a significant role in the transfer of blood sugar, or glucose, to the muscles, similar to the function of the hormone insulin. Aside from its blood sugar lowering effect, it is also seen to increase the sensitivity of the muscles to insulin. Thus, if you have type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance, vanadyl sulfate can be very helpful.

Since vanadium can increase absorption of sugar in the muscles, it can store more energy within the muscles. This means that your body will not have as much glucose to store as fat. Consequently, it can increase muscle mass, vascularity and blood flow, making it popular with Weightlifters and athletes, who find they can achieved better results by taking vanadyl sulfate as part of their program.
