Blood Glucose Support

Blood Sugar Support 

The body receives glucose from the food we eat and utilises it as an important source of energy and nutrients for the body’s organs, muscles and nervous system. Glucose from our food gets into the bloodstream and then the pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, to help get the glucose into the body’s cells, to facilitate all processes in the body, including energy production.  

Blood Sugar Support Nutrients 

  • Alpha-lipoic acid is a universal antioxidant that functions as a co-enzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates to turn glucose into energy. 
  • Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) has research which has shown that his herbal extract contains properties that may have a beneficial effect on supporting and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. 
  • L-Carnitine fumarate is an amino acid complex that supports insulin sensitivity and has a potential significant effect on insulin-mediated glucose uptake, in the body. 
  • Chromium picolinate is a mineral as a specific affinity with blood sugar level support, can support healthy glucose levels in the blood stream and support insulin sensitivity. 
  • Trans-resveratrol has shown to be effective in modulating blood glucose levels in the body while supporting insulin resistance and blood lipid profiles in the body. 
  • Probiotics contain good bacteria in the gut can have a significant effect in the support of fasting plasma glucose levels, as well as supporting the health of pancreatic cells that produce insulin, in helping to regulate glucose levels in the blood stream. 
  • Olive leaf (Olea Europa) has a high amount of antioxidant properties to help maintain blood sugar level stability. 

Blood Sugar Support Tips 

  • Choose foods with a low glycaemic index, as these foods offer a slow and sustained release of glucose into the blood stream. Foods on the low glycaemic index diet include: Breads that are; whole grain, multigrain, rye and sourdough. Other grains; oats, brown rice and bran flakes. Fruits include; apples, strawberries, apricots, peaches, plums, pears, kiwi, tomatoes. Vegetables; carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, zucchini. 
  • The role of fibre in complex carbohydrates is very important, as it helps to regulate blood sugar levels by releasing glucose, slowly into the blood stream. 
  • Manage a healthy weight with exercise as this encourages your muscles to use more glucose. Over time, this can support your blood sugar levels making the insulin in your body work better. 
  • Liver health is vital for blood sugar level health, as it is the liver that produces the insulin to manage and regulate glucose levels in the blood stream. The liver also supplies glucose to the blood, by turning glycogen into glucose, in a process called glycogenolysis. 

FAQ's

What happens when blood sugar is high?

Having too much glucose in the blood stream for long periods of time can cause serious health concerns if it is not remedied as soon as possible. Hyperglycaemia or high blood sugar, can cause health concerns in the blood vessels that supply blood to vital organs, resulting in potential heart and circulation issues, kidney concerns, vision and nerve health challenges. An example of a sample result of a blood sugar level less than 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L), would be considered healthy and normal.

How do you feel when your blood sugar is too high?

Ginseng (Eleuthero senticosus) has been shown in research to help support healthy glucose levels in the blood. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) is high in soluble fibre, which helps lower glucose in the blood stream, by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, resulting in healthy blood sugar levels. Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) contains an active antioxidant ingredient that helps support insulin resistance from the pancreas and healthy blood sugar levels. Gymnema sylvestre helps with sugar cravings, to support healthy glucose levels in the blood. May help to stimulate insulin secretion and the health of the pancreas islet cells, which in turn supports insulin resistance and healthy blood sugar levels. Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) contains specific antioxidants, useful for liver support, supporting insulin sensitivity and healthy blood sugar level support.
