Clinicians Blood Sugar Balance. A powerful scientifically based formula to support healthy insulin and blood sugar levels, weight management and energy levels. This unique formula was designed with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes in mind. Perfect for those at risk of developing insulin resistance. The ingredients have been proven to have a positive effect of glucose and insulin metabolism. Contains ingredients such as chromium for healthy blood sugar regulation, cinnamon bark extract, green tea extract, grape seed extract and milk thistle extract for antioxidant protection and better blood sugar control, curcumin to help reduce inflammation and magnesium and zinc, important co factors in glucose and insulin regulation.
Carbohydrates are the body's preferred source of energy. Once broken down into simple sugars and absorbed, they enter the bloodstream where they are taken up into cells for use in the metabolic processes important for cell energy production.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. It binds to the cell walls of certain types of cells, allowing them to take up sugars and glucose from the bloodstream. These cells are called insulin sensitive cells. We all rely on this insulin sensitivity for our cells to utilise energy sources. In many individuals, this insulin sensitivity may decrease. Cells stop responding to the presence of insulin, which results in a continuous over-production of insulin but very little sugar or glucose can be taken up into the cells. Blood insulin levels increase together with blood sugar levels. This is known as insulin resistance. It is also referred to as glucose intolerance/syndrome X metabolic syndrome.
Chronic insulin resistance can lead to diabetes. Causes of insulin resistance include high consumption of carbohydrates and sugars over an extended period of time, hormonal changes (especially in women), excessive alcohol consumption, high consumption of saturated fats (red meat, butter etc.). In some individuals, this can lead to diabetes. Chronic insulin resistance has been linked to the development of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), cardiovascular disease, accelerated aging, male pattern baldness, polycystic ovary syndrome, high cholesterol and fatigue.
One can help to prevent insulin resistance naturally through:
Diet: Reduce the amount of carbohydrates (especially refined carbohydrates and simple sugars). Reduce intake of fried fatty foods replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats (omega 3 fish oils, flaxseed oil and olive oil).
Exercise: Regular exercise (both aerobic and isotonic) may prevent and reduce insulin resistance. A nutritional supplement designed to assist the way the body uses insulin may also benefit those with signs and symptoms of insulin resistance.
Clinicians BloodSugar Balance is indicated as nutrient and antioxidant support for disorders of glucose and insulin metabolism. Vitamins are supplementary to and not a replacement for a balanced diet. Always read the label and use as directed.
Clinicians BloodSugar Balance is recommended for both sexes in at risk populations particularly where a person's health may be influenced by genetic factors. Diabetes is more prevalent among Maori and Pacific Island populations and becomes more prevalent with age. There is a strong genetic relationship within family groups. BloodSugar Balance is useful for type 2 diabetics and those with Insulin resistance, Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome.

Keep out of reach of Children. People taking insulin replacement therapy should consult their practitioner before taking this product. Blood sugar and insulin levels would need to be monitored carefully in these people. Insufficient safety information for pregnant and breastfeeding women, so avoid use during these times. Curcumin can be a problem for those with gall bladder problems.
