Blood Sugar Maintenance

The most common type of diabetes is Type 2 (also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes). It is a chronic condition where the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body ignores the affects of insulin, which causes less sugar to move into your cells. When this takes place, it is called insulin resistance. Consequently, your blood sugar remains chronically high; eating a high-carb, high sugar and high-fat diet usually the root causes. 

Some of the most common symptoms of elevated blood sugar are frequent urination, excessive thirst, fatigue, blurred vision and headaches. I highly suggest a low glycemic diet, loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables, along with proper amounts of protein and healthy fats. Check out all the education provided in my Low-GI Based Program

This program centers on food quality, because wholesome food produces lean, energetic people. Controlling the GI of your foods promotes normal blood-sugar levels and enables the body to stay in a fat-burning mode. Blood sugar imbalance is extremely dangerous to every body system and it increases the risk of heart disease, poor circulation, and diabetic retinopathy. It is critical to help your body come back into balance with the proper diet and supplementation.

Along with coaching my patients to eat a low glycemic diet, over the years I have personally seen amazing results with using key supplements that have been clinically studied to help bring blood sugars into a normal range. Below are my favorites and why.

Dr. Sheryl Recommends These Natural Supplements For Blood Sugar Maintenance

  • “I’ve been using the Isochrome and OPC-3 per day to control my diabetes since June 07. Before I used the MA products, I used to take two 1000MG Metformins and one Avandia for my diabetes, but still they couldn’t really help me to control my blood sugar level, my HBc test result then was 7.5. After I started taking the Isochrome (1 capful) and the OPC-3 (2 capfuls) per day, my sugar level gradually went down. 3 weeks ago, I went to have a blood test. My HBC result was 6.6, which is very good for people with diabetes. Now I only take 1 1000 MG Metformin per day just for cautions. I am thinking when my blood sugar level becomes stable, I may stop taking medicine. The Isochrome combines with OPC-3 work for me. If your client wants to try it, please remind the person that, it might take a few weeks before the blood sugar level starts to go down, please be patient to allow the supplement to work its way out. Hope this helps.”

  • “My cousin, Beth Ann, has diabetes. She was on 3 doses of insulin shots a day. Her sugar levels were never under 500 even with insulin. The doctors did not know anything else to do. They had tried everything they could think of. She also has a pancreas problem. Her triglycerides would get as high as 5000 and they would put her in the hospital to try to level them out and get them to drop. In January she was again put in the hospital. They finally got her levels down enough that she could go back home. She had to stay in bed even at home. When she got home, we started her on OPC-3™, Isochrome, Digestive Enzymes, Isotonix Multi-Mineral ® and Ultimate Aloe® right away. Now her sugar levels are stationary between 140 and 170 without taking insulin. She is losing inches; she has gone down two dress sizes. In addition, her stomach does not hurt all the time from the pancreatitis. She would not be without these products.”

nutraMextrix Isotonix® OPC-3
Pycnogenol® has been shown to reduce the amount of glucose in the blood stream by slowing the absorption of carbohydrates. It significantly delays uptake of complex sugars such as starch and potentially inhibits the digestive enzyme -glucosidase in the duodenum. Other glucosidase inhibitors such as green tea extract, pure catechin and the oral antidiabetic medication Acarbose (Precose, Glucobay) are dramatically less potent. Pycnogenol® delays the uptake of glucose from a meal 190 times more potently than prescription medications, preventing the typical high glucose peak in the blood stream after a meal for those with blood sugar issues.

More than half the people suffering from diabetes will eventually develop retinopathy, an eye disease caused by capillaries leaking blood into the retina, leading to gradual vision loss. Five clinical studies with over 1,000 patients demonstrated Pycnogenol® strengthens retinal capillaries and preserves eyesight. Recent research on Pycnogenol® and a proprietary bilberry extract shows the ingredient combination normalizes intraocular pressure which significantly reduces the likelihood of developing glaucoma.

Isotonix® Isochrome by nutraMetrix
Chromium is an important mineral for regulating blood sugars. It is critical to insulin control which regulates hunger, supports metabolism, and builds and retains muscle and vital organ tissue. A deficiency in chromium can cause insulin resistance. Chromium aids in supporting healthy metabolic rates and muscle performance. Due to the lack of minerals in growing soils, 90% of Americans are deficient in chromium.

It is important to note that in the typical pill form it is difficult to absorb chromium because chromium is a naturally occurring mineral (or a rock). In the patented isotonic delivery system this essential trace mineral has been ionized, or broken down, into a form ready to be absorbed into the body. The body is able to absorb this form of chromium more efficiently and at a higher rate due to the isotonic delivery system.

nutraMetrix Advanced Level 90®

nutraMetrix Advanced Level 90 is a very powerful combination of vitamins, trace minerals and herbs that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and promotes optimal uptake and use of blood glucose. Maintaining healthy, normal blood sugar levels is important to overall health because of the negative impact that high blood sugar levels can cause on the body

This formula really does and amazing job at combing key ingredients that works so synergistically together to help stabilize blood sugar.

One of my favorite ingredients in this formula is Alpha-lipoic acid which is a powerful antioxidant. Alpha-lipoic acid has been shown to support normal insulin sensitivity. Alpha-lipoic acid promotes the production of energy from fat and sugar, which promotes the normal elimination of glucose from the blood and supports normal insulin function. A clinical study shows Alpha-lipoic acid supports healthy glucose uptake by the muscles and promotes normal glucose oxidation. 

Conclusion: Alfa lipoic acid is an effective in the treatment of diabetic distal sensory-motor neuropathy and its therapeutic effect is more effective in patients with good glycemic control, meaning eat a low glycemic diet.

Recommended Complementary Products For Blood Sugar Maintenance

Ultimate Aloe Juice®
Ultimate Aloe contains over 200 nutrients, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, including 13 of the 17 essential minerals needed for good nutrition, a strong immune system, and digestive comfort and healing.

Several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of aloe for blood sugar management, with fasting levels of glucose in one group decreasing by 17 percent within two weeks and 57 percent after six weeks of treatment with two tablespoons of aloe juice taken daily. Other studies consistently display drops in fasting blood sugar near this 50 percent mark, and in all cases these results are accompanied by a corresponding decrease in triglycerides.

Taking a tablespoonful of aloe juice twice a day helps to regularize insulin flow and lower blood glucose levels naturally aiding in combating vascular disease that can accompany diabetes.

Typical Western diets are low in minerals especially Magnesium (55% of Americans don’t get enough magnesium)

Your Pancreas needs magnesium to secrete enough insulin. Magnesium is also needed to sensitize cells to insulin in order to allow sugar into the cells.

Low magnesium levels are associated with insulin resistance. If you are dealing with type 2 diabetes and uncontrolled blood sugar. It is absolutely critical to eat plenty of dark green vegetables and foods high in magnesium. It is also important supplement with a bioavailable magnesium.
