ProactiveLife (http://www.proactivelife.com), the maker of Diabetes Support, was founded in 2011 to help people take a proactive approach to better health.
Diabetes Support contains ten ingredients including alpha-lipoic acid, magnesium, turmeric, cocoa, cinnamon, omega-3, vitamin D, L-Arginine, creatine and chromium. Along with lifestyle changes including diet and exercise Diabetes Support is a new proactive approach to better health.
Type 2 Diabetics who consumed pure cocoa witnessed a 30% increase in arterial blood flow according to the Journal of American College of Cardiology June 3rd addition. Additionally, a presentation presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2011 Congress showed that people who consumed the most chocolate had a 29% lower risk of stroke compared with people who consumed the lease amount of chocolate.
Cinnamon can be useful in reducing A1c levels for people with Type 2 Diabetes, this according to a study published in the Journal of the American Board Family Medicine.
A study published in Nutrition and Metabolism is the first to show how omega 3 fatty acids play a role in metabolic processes with respects to blood sugar and fat processing; reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Professor Brier leads an international research team and indicates omega 3 fatty acids improve carbohydrate and fat metabolism. A diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids helps to burn metabolic fuels (glucose and fat) better, and can regulate energy storage across different tissues.
“These findings are important because the ageing process is closely linked with a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome – a clustering of risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and obesity,” says Professor Breier, Chair of Human Nutrition at the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Human Health at Albany.
“In several studies, alpha-lipoic acid appears to help lower blood sugar levels. Its ability to kill free radicals may help people with peripheral neuropathy, who have pain, burning, itching, tingling, and numbness in arms and legs from nerve damage,” according to University of Maryland Medical Center
In the June 2011 issue of Clinical Nutrition researchers from Brazil studied 51 type 2 diabetics and measured their magnesium levels. What they found was a clear association between magnesium levels and blood glucose levels. Of the people studied 77% were deficient in magnesium and the lower their magnesium level the higher their glucose levels measured.
In a study released by the journal Diabetes Care on March 7, 2012 it concluded optimal vitamin D levels lowered all causes of cardiovascular disease mortality in people with metabolic syndrome. “We observed a 75% and 69% reduction in all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality, respectively, in those with optimal levels compared with those with severe 25(OH)D deficiency.”
Along with lifestyle changes including proper diet and exercise Diabetes Support Supplements is a proactive step towards better overall health.
