Glucose Optimizer 120 tablets - alpha lipoic acid, bitter melon, eucalyptus, green tea, gymnema, resveratrol | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Glucose Optimizer is a comprehensive combination of nutrients that improve glucose metabolism and antioxidant protection.
who can benefit from Glucose Optimizer?
Glucose Optimizer is designed for people whose blood glucose and insulin levels fluctuate. It may also be used by people interested in enhanced carbohydrate metabolism and antioxidant protection against aging and daily stress.
how does each active ingredient function in Glucose Optimizer?
• Alpha Lipoic Acid facilitates reduction of blood glucose and supports general metabolism by its effects on energy production.
• Banaba, Gymnema, Bitter Melon, and Eucalyptus are herbal extracts that have glucose regulating properties.
•Glycostat Wild Bitter Melon Extract, a proprietary extract produced from a wild genotype, promotes a healthy blood sugar level.
• Green Tea Extract (50% Polyphenols) supports the strength of capillaries and other blood vessels.
• Magnesium is involved in the metabolism of glucose and production of energy in the form of ATP.
• Resveratrol protects cardiovascular function by inhibiting LDL oxidation, upregulating nitric oxide synthesis and supporting the integrity of the capillaries
what distinguishes Glucose Optimizer?
• synergistic combination of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and botanicals
• resveratrol - comprehensive antioxidant
• blood sugar health support EasySolv tablets for fast, easy digestion and absorption
• alpha lipoic acid clinically-documented re insulin action
• 3+ glucose modulating herbal extracts: Gymnema and bitter melon
More than 16 million people in the U.S. have difficulty maintaining healthy glucose levels. Our Westernized diet is high in sugar and refined starches that are quickly converted to glucose once they are ingested. This causes rapid fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin levels, putting stress on the body. Also, an increasing number of overweight adults and children in the U.S. are developing impaired glucose tolerance and other metabolic conditions.
Glycemic control: key to healthy life
It is important to have well-balanced blood glucose and insulin levels. A growing number of scientific studies suggest that proper glycemic balance can significantly enhance cardiovascular, immune and bone health, energy production, metabolism, and overall well-being.
Following a healthy diet and a daily exercise program can help maintain glucose balance. Adding certain vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals complements diet and exercise in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
Vitamins, minerals, and botanicals for healthy blood sugar levels
Chromium is one of the trace elements required for glucose metabolism. Scientific research has shown that chromium deficiency is linked to compromised glucose tolerance, lipid metabolism and weight management. Chromium supplementation has resulted in enhanced insulin sensitivity, improved fasting and postprandial glucose levels, and a decrease in fatigue, thirst, and frequent urination.
Magnesium deficiency is common in people who have difficulty maintaining healthy glucose levels, and it may have negative effects on the brain, eyes and cardiovascular system. Magnesium plays an important role in glucose transport and metabolism. Clinical studies have suggested that magnesium may improve insulin secretion and sensitivity as well as peripheral glucose uptake.
Vitamin B complex
The vitamin B family is critical for healthy carbohydrate metabolism and cellular functions. For example, vitamins B1, B5, and B12 help in the release of energy from carbohydrates.
Niacinamide enhances the survival of beta cells, which is to say, the cells that are responsible for secretion of insulin. It also protects the peripheral organs and blood vessels from oxidation and other damage caused by excess sugar metabolites.
Vitamin B6 and biotin are known to enhance insulin secretion and sensitivity while maintaining normal blood glucose levels by regulating the production and storage of glucose.
Powerful anti-oxidantas: vitamin C, E, alpha-lipoic acid, resveratrol
When blood glucose levels fluctuate above the normal range, free radical activity in the body increases. The powerful antioxidants, vitamins C, E, alpha-Lipoic acid, and resveratrol can reduce oxidative damage by minimizing protein glycation and lipid oxidation as well as by enhancing glucose metabolism and insulin secretion and sensitivity. Alpha-Lipoic acid also can directly improve glucose transport across cell membranes and regulate glucose storage in the liver to maintain the healthy blood glucose levels.
Botanicals for glycemic control
This Indian/Ayurvedic herb has been used for more than 2000 years for healthy glycemic balance. Gymnema sylvestre stimulates regeneration of the islets of Langerhans, beta cell function and growth, and maintenance of healthy blood sugar and insulin levels.
Multiple clinical studies have shown a signifi cant improvement in blood sugar balance compared to the placebo groups.
Banaba leaf and wild bitter melon extracts
Banaba leaf and wild bitter melon extracts contain potent bioactive compounds. Banaba includes corosolic acid, lagerstroemin, flosin B, reginin A, and lectin. Wild bitter melon includes compounds that exhibit both insulin-mimetic and insulin-sensitizing properties while also activating the metabolism of fats for energy. The active components of these ingredients maintain healthy blood glucose levels by stimulating glucose uptake and metabolism.
Eucalyptus leaf extracts
Eucalyptus leaf extract contains many antioxidants that can positively affect glycation and oxidation of proteins and lipids, both of which are observed more frequently in the presence of high blood sugar levels. Recent scientifi c research suggests that this biologically potent extract may enhance glucose transport and glucose metabolism.
Eucalyptus leaf extract can stimulate insulin production, both actions contributing to balanced blood glucose levels.
Jarrow Formulas Glucose Optimizer is a unique blend of the natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutraceuticals that are described above in detail. These ingredients have been scientifically well-documented to promote healthy blood sugar levels and total well-being.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.
