Many people are affected by high or low blood glucose levels. According to studies conducted by the CDC, 37% of adults in the US aged 20 or older were prediabetic. Based on the population counts in 2012, that's around 86 million Americans who are prediabetic. Those statistics don't factor in the people who have been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The same study showed that 9.3% of the population, has been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
But blood sugar problems can affect everyone, even people who aren't prediabetic or diabetic. Hyperglycemia is considered high blood sugar. High blood sugar symptoms can include: blurred vision, increased thirst, trouble concentrating, increased urination, fatigue and headaches.
On the flip side, low blood sugar (known as hypoglycemia), can also cause problems. Hypoglycemia symptoms include: heart palpitations, shaking, anxiety, sweating, hunger, irritability or pale skin.
Since glucose is the main source for energy in the body, it is important to keep it balanced. Too much glucose can have just as many adverse effects on the body as not enough glucose. In order to combat the effects of poor glucose levels, many people focus on changing their diets. However, simply changing your diet is not always enough. A lot of factors play into glucose levels, including genetics and outside stimuli like exercise and sleep.
Glucose Support Formula by BLUESPRING has been created to not only help with healthy glucose levels, but to also make your daily life more simple. Every day diet doesn't always contain the necessary vitamins and minerals required for the body to maintain proper nutritional balances. That's why BLUESPRING is committed to you and the best balance your body can have.
Each ingredient was chosen with glucose health in mind. BLUESPRING searched for the most effective ingredients through various scientific studies to find which ones would be the most effective, while still maintaining their commitment to natural ingredients. The result was Glucose Support Formula, which is an all-natural over-the-counter supplement which contains vitamin E, magnesium, chromium, bitter melon extract, and Jerusalem artichoke extract, and other natural ingredients. Combined, these ingredients provide a significant and beneficial balance to glucose levels within the body.
As always, it is important to check with a doctor if you are unsure about taking Glucose Support Formula. BLUESPRING wants to help you contribute to healthy levels of blood sugar, increased energy levels and overall body balance. Taking the steps to bolster your wellness by taking an all-natural supplement will put you a step ahead in the battle for total body health.
In Glucose Support Formula, 16 natural ingredients are specially formulated to give you the amazing benefit of balancing your blood sugar level. Each ingredient is carefully chosen and tested based on evidence based studies which reveal the highest quality.
There are many Blood Sugar Products on the market with substandard ingredients that simply do not deliver on their promises. They waste your money and give you false hope. Invest in quality and protect your health – your most valuable asset.
Studies show that vitamin E may have a positive effect on insulin for individuals struggling with diabetes. A 1993 study found that diabetics taking vitamin E supplements experienced better glucose clearance, which reduced overall blood sugar levels. In addition to glucose clearance, their muscles metabolized glucose better. Furthermore, non-diabetics also received the same positive effects. Results of another study published in 2008 suggested that regular vitamin E supplements could improve blood sugar clearance and insulin response. This study had participants taking 1,000 milligrams of vitamin E every day for four weeks. At the end of the study, blood glucose and insulin levels had fallen (I don’t want to make up a stat here, but we should finish out the study. Example: insulin levels had fallen to a more healthy level).
Magnesium is an important part of keeping the body functioning properly. It maintains muscle, regulates heart rhythm, boosts the immune system, and so much more. Furthermore, according to a 1987 study, magnesium regulates blood glucose levels and can even normalize blood pressure. Besides being used to manage diabetes, magnesium is also used for high blood pressure and heart disease. Magnesium has a balancing effect on blood sugar, so both diabetics and those who are hypoglycemic can benefit from supplements containing magnesium. A recent study has also been released showing that magnesium is an important factor in controlling blood sugar levels.
L-OptiZinc®, A Patented Form of Zinc
People with diabetes consistently have lower zinc levels than those free of diabetes; the connection is undeniable. Studies show that zinc lowers blood glucose levels and has the added bonus of regulating cholesterol levels. Glucose Support Formula is made with a patented form of zinc called L-OptiZinc®. This particular type of zinc is combined with methionine, an amino acid that has been shown to be more easily absorbed by the body. It is also retained much longer than other forms of zinc. Retaining zinc is very positive for diabetics who can easily lose it. L-OptiZinc® has the added benefit of promoting a healthy nervous and immune system.
Manganese is a mineral found in trace amounts throughout the body, particularly the bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. It plays an important role in many of the body's day to day functions. Manganese deficiency is considered rare. However, too little manganese can affect bone formation, cause high blood pressure, infertility, poor vision, hearing loss and more. On the flip side, an excess of manganese can cause neurological disorders. It has been suggested that manganese is helpful in treating many disorders, including diabetes. Researchers have observed that diabetics have low levels of manganese, but it is unclear whether diabetes depletes manganese levels, or if low manganese levels contributes to diabetes. More research into the matter is needed, but what is known is diabetics with higher levels of manganese are more protected from bad cholesterol levels. Manganese has also been shown to help control blood sugar levels and regulate glucose metabolism in the body.
ChromeMate®, a Patented Form of Chromium
Chromium is a metal that is necessary in trace amounts in order for the body to function properly. It is hard to be chromium deficient, yet many Americans have chromium levels that are lower than is considered healthy. Athletes, pregnant women and the elderly are especially likely to be low in chromium. Researchers have done several studies over the years regarding the effects of chromium on type 2 diabetes. Some research has discovered that chromium could lower blood glucose levels and possibly the amount of insulin diabetics require. One study found women with gestational diabetes had more normal blood glucose levels taking chromium supplements.
Glucose Support Formula by BLUESPRING uses a patented form of chromium called ChromeMate®. This product has been marketed in the United States since 1987. ChromeMate® is niacin-bound which makes this brand the safest and most effective form of chromium available. It has been extensively researched and has been found to be the only chromium supplement with proven biological activity. This chromium complex is very important to proper insulin function. ChromeMate® helps to keep healthy insulin levels normal and promotes a healthy body weight. It can also be used to help increase the effectiveness of insulin. Insulin activated by chromium has a positive effect on the amount of blood glucose available to produce energy. ChromeMate® is instrumental in making sure insulin is metabolizing fat, converting protein to muscle and converting glucose to energy.
GlucoHelp™ Brand Patented Lagerstroemia Speciosa Extract
Lagerstroemia speciosa extract, also known as Banaba extract has been a folk remedy for diabetes in Southeast Asia for many, many years. The first published study was conducted in 1940. In the study, the constituents were isolated from the leaves and tested individually. It was found that corosolic acid, one of the isolated constituents and a unique phytonutrient, may decrease blood sugar levels in humans within an hour. Since the 1940’s, many other studies have been conducted exploring the effects of lagerstroemia speciosa extract on diabetic patients. Many positive effects have been recorded with non-existent side effects.
The lagerstroemia speciosa extract used in the Glucose Support Formula is a version patented by the brand GlucoHelp™. This brand of Banaba extract is guaranteed to be potent due to a standardized 18 percent level of corosolic acid, the highest available. This natural supplement controls blood glucose levels by enhancing the metabolism. Corosolic acid activates glucose transporters on a cellular level, which causes the cells to let glucose in. There is also research that enforces the claim that it assists your body to better create, and use insulin. It also improves glucose tolerance and helps the it get around the body to better nourish the cells. Banaba leaf may also ease the symptoms of diabetes, including thirstiness and excessive hunger. It has also been proven to aid pre-diabetic patients in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels without inducing hypoglycemia or causing blood glucose levels to drop dangerously.
Bitter Melon Extract
Bitter melon is a plant grown in Africa, Asia and South America for both food and medicinal purposes. Bitter melon has many desirable effects on the body. It is used to treat many digestive issues including: constipation, worms, upset stomach and colitis. It has also been applied to wounds and infections to aid healing. Bitter melon extract is also useful in fighting psoriasis, liver diseases, kidney stones and diabetes. Bitter melon works in the body to fight against diabetes by utilizing a certain chemical within it that mimics insulin, which reduces blood glucose levels.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract
Gymnema sylvestre extract is made from the leaves of a climbing shrub that is native to India and Africa. Gymnema sylvestre extract is still being studied to ascertain all the effects it may have on the body. However, it has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for a very long time. It has many different uses. In fact gurmar, another name for the extract, means "destroyer of sugar." There are certain substances in gymnema extract that decrease the amount of sugar absorbed into the intestines. Furthermore, it can also increase insulin levels, as well as promoting cellular health in the pancreas, the organ which manufactures insulin. The leaves have been used to treat malaria, counteract snake bites, stimulate the digestive system and suppress the appetite. Gymnema sylvestre extract has also been used as a laxative and a diuretic, as well as to treat coughs and metabolic syndrome.
Vanadium is a trace mineral found in certain foods. There have yet to be enough studies on humans to solidify the facts, so nothing is certain yet, but research so far suggests vanadium could be necessary to the human body in small amounts and may promote normal bone growth. It is used to treat syphilis, edema, anemia, tuberculosis, heart disease, high cholesterol, hypoglycemia and diabetes. Studies indicate that vanadium may be useful in lowering blood sugar levels and increase the effectiveness of insulin for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Some evidence points to the possibility that vanadium may act similar to insulin within the body.
Jerusalem Artichoke Extract
The Jerusalem artichoke is a misnomer since it is not related to the artichoke normally enjoyed at dinner, nor is it native to Jerusalem! The medicinal extract made from the plant has a high concentration of specifically useful chemical compounds. The extract is useful in many different cases, but the most common use is as a supplement for diabetics, to give the pancreas a boost. Jerusalem artichokes reduce the blood glucose levels in the body causing it to use less insulin. The Jerusalem artichoke has a high amount of inulin (not insulin, this is something different), which causes it to have a very low glycemic index and possibly mimic the function of insulin. Additionally, this keeps blood sugar levels stable. Inulin also relieves constipation, improves the way the body absorbs calcium, reduces bad cholesterol and triglycerides and fights cancer.
Fenugreek is an herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for millennia. Traditionally, it is prescribed to aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, promote lactation, and lower cholesterol. Evidence suggests, it may regulate blood glucose levels and could be used to treat diabetes. Studies have shown that the chemical compounds in fenugreek kept blood sugar from being absorbed, increased insulin production in the pancreas and created more insulin receptors. In a study conducted in 1990, the subjects who took the fenugreek power ended up with lower blood glucose than the control group. A study in 1999 showed certain compounds of fenugreek increased insulin production in diabetic animals, as compared to the animals given a placebo. Larger trials are needed, but the results so far are promising.
Milk thistle is a flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. It is presumed to protect the liver and also reportedly helps the liver regulate blood glucose levels. Milk thistle has a component called Silibinin that is responsible for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies conducted on rats showed reduced glucose levels in both healthy and diabetic groups after just a single dose. In a study using human participants similar results were found and it was decided that silimarin (this or Silbinin?) was an effective treatment for type 2 diabetes and improved glycemic health.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract
Ginkgo biloba extract is an antioxidant made from an old species of tree which can live up to 1,000 years. Traditionally, it was used to improve the sharpness of the mind and memory, as well as treating disorders of the blood. There are studies that support these beliefs, showing that ginkgo biloba improves the circulation of the blood. Some studies suggest it may be useful in treating dementia and heart disease. Additionally, Ginkgo biloba extract may protect adult memory. It has also been suggested that it may affect blood glucose and insulin levels. In a study(do we know which study?), healthy patients experienced increased insulin levels, while diabetic patients found their insulin levels had decreased. Because the effects of ginkgo biloba on insulin levels are not fully known, it is suggested that ginkgo biloba supplements should only be used under the supervision of a licensed medical professional to avoid strange interactions with the body or other medications, especially if you are diabetic or hypoglycemic.
Bilberry is a cousin of the blueberry and native to Northern Europe. It is an antioxidant rich fruit and has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. Very few studies have been done on the medicinal properties of the bilberry. Of those that have been conducted, even fewer have involved humans. Bilberry is mainly utilized for vision, atherosclerosis, inflammation, hemorrhoids, chronic venous insufficiency and diabetes. Bilberry leaves are a traditional remedy for controlling blood glucose levels in diabetics.
Research has been done showing all berries can assist in reducing the body's glucose response after eating something with a high amount of sugar in it. Certain studies indicate that bilberry may be an effective way to manage blood glucose levels. However, due to the lack of research in this area, it is not an officially recognized method for managing diabetes. Bilberry fruit is a food and thus is considered safe, but not enough research has been done on bilberry leaf to comment on its safety.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant your body makes. Every cell in your body contains it and uses it to convert glucose to energy. While most antioxidants work only in water or only in fatty tissue, alpha lipoic acid is both fat and water soluble making it able to work easily anywhere in the body. Alpha lipoic acid has been shown to protect brain function and ward off strokes. It may even be effective in managing diabetes. Several studies show alpha lipoic acid aiding in lowering blood glucose levels. As an antioxidant, it is capable of killing free radicals and this may be useful for easing diabetic peripheral neuropathy and the associated pain, burning, and itching from nerve damage. In Germany, it has been used intravenously for years to treat peripheral neuropathy. A healthy body makes alpha lipoic acid on its own, but it is also available in prescription pill form. Alpha lipoic acid may also aid in another condition associated with diabetes called autonomic neuropathy.
Citrus bioflavonoids are also known as blond psyllium which is a plant. Medicine is made from the seed and the husk of the blonde psyllium. Citrus bioflavonoids have many common uses, from aiding with hemorrhoids, dysentery, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues, to reducing cholesterol, blood pressure, heart disease, weight and more. It is even used in some frozen dairy desserts! It can also be used for treating bruising, nose bleeds, venous insufficiency, and it may even hold benefits for people with diabetes. However, research is currently in the most preliminary stages. Much more research into the benefits of citrus bioflavenoids is needed before any definitive advice on using it to treat diabetes can be offered.
Certain kinds of bioflavenoids have been successfully used to treat diabetic complications such as cataracts, peripheral neuropathy and retinopathy. Bioflavenoids may also enhance insulin production, protect the pancreas and stop platelets from aggregating.
