Gluco-Beta Stimulator provides nutritional support to assist beta cell function Gluco-Beta Stimulator combines select nutrients and herbs to help regulate blood sugar levels in people with elevated blood sugar, as found in pre-diabetes and diabetes. Hyperglycemia is problematic over time because it can cause organ, nerve, and cellular damage. Excess glucose in blood vessels reduces nitric oxide, which increases the risk of high blood pressure and can contribute to narrowing of blood vessels and cardiovascular disease. High glucose harms both blood vessels and nerves. This results in reduced circulation to the extremities as well as to vital organs. Impaired blood flow to the arms, legs, and organs results in increased risk of infections, stroke, blindness, heart problems, kidney disease, impotence, and loss of feeling in the hands and feet, and even amputation of feet or legs.
Diabetes is rising both in the USA and worldwide, with the World Health Organization calling diabetes a global health problem. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death. There are 23.6 million people in the USA struggling with diabetes and it is found in all races and ages.
Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin that is a coenzyme. In the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbohydrates Biotin is necessary to process glucose and may help reduce elevated glucose in people with diabetes. Biotin may also prevent the development of insulin resistance in skeletal muscle and can help improve symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, including reducing pain.
Chromium is a trace mineral with a wide variety of applications. Medical reports from 1853 indicate that brewers yeast, a substance rich in chromium, was effective in treating diabetes. Modern research corroborates this usage with studies demonstrating that chromium can improve blood sugar levels in people with glucose intolerance as well as gestational, type 2, and steroid induced diabetes. Chromium apparently works by increasing sensitivity to insulin. Additional benefits of chromium include reducing triglycerides and total LDL cholesterol along with raising HDL. These benefits are especially important for people with diabetes, who have a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
Gymnema is a tropical plant that is native to southern and central India. Its Hindu name is gurmar, meaning destroyer of sugar. When chewed the leaves of Gymnema can inhibit the ability to taste sweetness. Not surprisingly, this plant has been used in India to treat diabetes for over 2000 years. Research shows that Gymnema may stimulate pancreatic function, improving the production of insulin by increasing the number of insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Gymnema may also enhance glucose uptake and utilization by increasing enzyme activity.
This culinary herb has been utilized worldwide as a spice and has a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cinnamon contains the antioxidant compounds procyanidins. This herb has received a lot of attention recently for its ability to lower fasting blood sugar and improve insulin concentrations and signaling. A meta-analysis of randomized, placebo-controlled studies concluded that cinnamon is indeed effective in reducing blood glucose in people with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon also has a broad range of other medicinal uses including menstrual disorders, rheumatism, and diarrhea. Herbalists in the West commonly recommend cinnamon to relieve digestive problems like colic, gas, indigestion and heartburn.
