Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism—the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates—sugars and starches found in many foods—into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. With the help of the hormone insulin, cells throughout the body absorb glucose and use it for energy. Diabetes develops when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.
Eating balanced meals and snacks as well as getting the right nutrients is important for staying healthy and maintaining good glycemic control.
Vitamin D3 - has a number of benefits for your health. Produced by the body in response to sun exposure, it is thought to help boost insulin sensitivity, which is vital for blood glucose regulation.
Greens - Chlorella, spirulina and barley/wheat grass can significantly help diabetes due to their high chlorophyll content, detoxifying properties and lowering blood sugar levels
Vit B Complex- According to research, administration of vitamin B Complex can prevent blood vessel problems in diabetics.
Super pH Balance - Research shows that keeping the body in pH balance helps boost the metabolism, the physiology and the immune system and may help diabetics have better control over their blood sugar levels. It also helps lower weight gain and cardiovascular diseases.
Co-Enzyme Q10 - is a compound that occurs naturally in the body, and may be able to help with carbohydrate metabolism. It is has been proven that animals suffering from diabetes are co-enzyme Q10 deficient.
Zinc - Zinc itself may be a crucial element in insulin metabolism. Zinc is well-known as a powerful guardian against viral infections, and may also act to protect beta cells from destruction. Type 1 diabetics are often zinc deficient, and supplements have been shown to lower blood sugar levels in some type 1 cases.
