Diabetes Support Supplements, a new product from ProactiveLife, contains chromium to help lower blood sugar levels. It has been known for sometime that approximately 90% of American diets are low in chromium. Chromium is an essential mineral that plays a role in how insulin helps the body regulate blood sugar levels and is now found in Diabetes Support Supplements. Insulin is a hormone that your body uses to change sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. There is evidence that for those with diabetes, taking a chromium supplement may help lower blood sugar levels.
People with diabetes either do not make enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin that their bodies make. As a result, glucose or sugar builds up in the bloodstream.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, people with type 2 diabetes who took chromium picolinate had better HbA1c values -- used to measure long-term control of blood sugar levels -- than those who took placebo. The group taking chromium also had better fasting blood glucose levels, a measure of short-term control of blood sugar levels.
Another double-blind, placebo-controlled study looked at a combination of chromium and biotin. Half the people in the study took chromium picolinate and biotin, and the other half took placebo. Those who took chromium and biotin had better fasting glucose levels as well as HbA1c values.”
ProactiveLife was founded in 2011 to help people take control of their health. The approach incorporates community, lifestyle changes and natural supplements which have been proven to assist people with blood sugar and energy regulation.
Diabetes Support contains ten ingredients which may lower blood sugar levels including chromium, turmeric, cocoa, cinnamon, omega-3, vitamin D and others. Along with lifestyle changes including diet and exercise Diabetes Support is a new proactive approach to overall health management.
