Diabetes is one of the most common concerns in the western world. Type 1 diabetes, which involves insulin deficiency, is usually diagnosed in adolescence, while type 2 diabetes is the most common form among the elderly.
In diabetes, various factors such as obesity, inappropriate diet and genetic predisposition cause individual cells to fail to react to the body’s blood sugar levels. As a result, the body's ability to absorb glucose from the blood is disrupted, and it is no longer able to supply its cells with this important nutrient. In the long term, resulting high blood sugar levels may also cause permanent damage to the vascular system and the organs.
Diabetichron® can help maintain blood sugar levels within normal ranges to promote a healthy insulin response and healthy glucose metabolism. Diabetichron® was formulated according to the principles of chronobiology, to provide the correct nutrients at the optimal time of day for optimum efficacy and absorption.
Diabetichron®, with its wide array of effective nutrients, helps support healthy glucose metabolism in a number of ways:
Maintenance of blood sugar levels already within normal ranges: Extracts like that of the banaba leaf help facilitate the healthy flow of sugar from the bloodstream into cells. In combination with plant extracts of fenugreek, bitter melon and gymnema sylvestre, which act at an early stage to help reduce the absorption of sugar molecules from the intestines, the overall absorption of sugar is reduced and the utilization of sugar is optimized, resulting in maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels within normal ranges.
Supporting optimal functioning of insulin receptors: To maintain healthy blood sugar levels, the sensitivity of insulin receptors must be maintained. Nutrients like vanadium sulfate have been shown to support the functional capacity of these important insulin docking sites. Furthermore, supplementing with chromium, particularly in its most active biological form, chromium polynicotinate, can help promote the effect of insulin once deposited at the receptor site. In combination, these nutrients support efficient and healthy functioning of the insulin receptors.
Healthy fat-burning: Healthy utilization of blood sugar in the body is necessary for healthy fat metabolism and utilization. L-carnitine supports healthy fat metabolism, while enzymes like lipases, proteases and amylases help support better digestion and utilization of nutrients, processes which are also supported by extracts of fennel or other plants rich in bioflavonoids.
Antioxidants: When blood sugar levels are not optimal, oxidative processes begin to produce large quantities of free radicals. Free radicals are the degenerative products of many metabolic processes and are highly reactive, causing general destruction of cells and tissue structures. For these reasons, adequate levels of antioxidants are an essential compliment for anyone desiring to maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within normal ranges.
One of the most well-known antioxidants is alpha lipoic acid, which is frequently dubbed the “universal antioxidant” because of its ability to regenerate vitamin C and coenzyme Q10, two other important antioxidants.
Alpha lipoic acid is produced in the liver and in other tissues, where it serves as a natural co-factor of multi-enzyme complexes like pyruvate dehydrogenase. Alpha lipoic acid plays an important role in the healthy generation of energy from glucose at a mitochondrial level. Alpha lipoic acid is also important for healthy nerve function. However, as you age, production decreases and the body becomes increasingly dependent on obtaining this valuable nutrient from the food you eat. Because the only food containing significant quantities of alpha lipoic acid is red meat, many people must supplement.
Vitamin C, vitamin E and biotin (also known as vitamin B7) are three substances also known for their antioxidant effects. Biotin also plays a special role in supporting healthy metabolic processes, including the metabolism of fatty acids.
Bilberries contain special pigments called anthocyanins, which also act as antioxidants. Bilberry extract provides anthocyanins to support healthy vision and help protect against eye conditions like age-related macular degeneration.
Optimal pH balance: Coral calcium helps to maintain optimal pH levels, encouraging greater absorption and utilization of active ingredients.
Diabetichron® is a chronobiologically-formulated supplement created to help maintain blood sugar levels within normal ranges, while also supporting healthy glucose metabolism. The carefully-synchronized day and night formulas ensure the desired levels of each ingredient are delivered at the optimal time of day for ultimate efficacy and absorption.
