Healthy sugar levels with supplements

After considering the symptoms of Syndrome X, we will identify some of the nutritions supplements that have proven useful in improving insulin activity

Nutrients improves glucose metabolism
Cinnamon: It has demonstrated 18-29% reductions in blood sugar, cholesterol 10-25% and 20-30% in triglycerides in diabetes II. These effects are due to improvements in the response of insulin receptors and are sustained, remaining 20 days after taking it. It also slows gastric emptying, which generates a smaller increase in blood sugar levels after eating. This is interesting for weight loss programs by making glucose levels are sustained over time and better control hunger.

For a relevant dose of cinnamon, you must use a standardized extract equivalent to 2000-2500 mg. cinnamon bark.

Alpha Lipoic Acid: Antioxidant ideal, active in both aqueous and lipid environments and able to regenerate other antioxidants like vitamins C and E. The antioxidant effect improves the response to insulin, increasing the presence of glucose transporters in cell membranes, especially in adipocytes and muscle cells.

Often improves microcirculation is impaired in diabetic patients, which increases the risk of disease and peripheral neuropathy vascualar. In diabetic patients has improved the dilation of blood vessels by 44% and has proved a powerful protector in diabetic neuropathy. It is antiatherogenic, for its anti-inflammatory capacity, highly localized to endothelial level, and its lowering effect on triglycerides and very low density lipoproteins. The recommended dose ranges between 250 and 500 mg. day.

GTF Chromium: This is the nutrient for sugar control better known. Factor Glucose Tolerance (GTF), or chromium polynicotinate, including niacin and chromium along with three amino acids: glycine, glutamic acid and tankers. Stimulates insulin release and enhances its activity to increase the number of insulin receptors. It also helps maintain the health of pancreatic beta cells responsible for insulin secretion. The level typically used is 200 micrograms. GTF chromium.

Magnesium: component of several enzymes involved in the breakdown of glucose. Serves as secondary messenger for insulin activity at the cell membrane, improving its response. A significant level ranges between 300 and 450 mg. day.

Zinc: Constituent related insulin synthesis and storage. It is a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, which fight free radicals caused by high glucose levels. The amount used is about 15 mg. day.

Copper: It is suggested that glucose intolerance may be secondary to low levels of copper. Deficiency is associated with Syndrome X and diabetes often show low levels. 500 micrograms is recommended. day.

Vitamin C: antioxidant addition, it also improves the transport of sugar and lower levels of biomarkers associated with poor glucose uptake. 100 mg. iari can be useful.

Thiamine (vitamin B1): Vital to the breakdown of dietary carbohydrate, via activation of enzymes involved in these reactions. Usually used 25 mg. day.

Niacin (vitamin B3): The factor is a component of Glucose Tolerance (GTF), a deficiency of vitamin B3 may affect the synthesis of this important molecule. The amount used is usually 50 mg.

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) reduces the levels of a biomarker (glycosylated hemoglobin) associated with poor glucose uptake in non-insulin-dependent diabetes (type II diabetes). 25 mg. can be useful.
