LEVELS AND HORMONE BALANCE
One of the fundamentals of the PeakBio
model is the constant control of insulin and blood sugars.
Today most people's diet consists of far too many refined sugars and other carbohydrates
and this in turn puts a tremendous load
on the body’s hormone system as it
works to maintain balance.
When blood sugars go unchecked, the body responds with stress hormone
and the adrenal glands are taxed.
line is designed to support and enhance thecornerstones of optimal body function
(glycemic control, hormonal control, detoxification and digestive health)
with the best nutrients known to support these key cornerstones.
GLUCOSE is specifically designed to aid the body in controlling blood sugars
while simultaneously limiting the amount of hormonal imbalance. You will notice
a positive difference in energy stability when these synergistic nutrients are working
to control insulin and cortisol levels.
Over time, chronically high or heavily fluctuating blood sugar levels can inflict
enormous hidden damage as the excess glucose combines with proteins, collagen,
and enzymes, and reacts with cellular DNA. This can trigger serious negative long-term
effects that can shave years or even decades off life (Cerami at al., 1987; Gillery
et al., 1991).
GLUCOSE'S KEY SUPPORTING FACTORS
Vandium Krebs† is a most important mineral with unique activity within a
number of physiological systems including glucose, lipid and bone metabolism. Studies
have shown that Vandium can help maintain blood glucose, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
It has also possesses the ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels and blood
Gymnema sylvestre has been used as a naturopathic treatment for diabetes
for nearly two millennia. It has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels when used
for an extended period of time and reduces the taste of sugar when it is placed
in the mouth, thus supporting the fight against sugar cravings. Extracts of Gymnema
are known to curb sweet tooth and are also beneficial for treatment of hyperglycemia,
obesity, high cholesterol levels, anemia and poor digestion.
Momordica charantia (Bitter Melon)
Naturopathic medicine has it that bitter melon helps to prevent or counteract Type-II
diabetes. A recent scientific study in India at the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate
Medical Education and Research has proved that bitter melon increases insulin sensitivity.
Also, in 2007, the Philippine Department of Health issued a circular stating that
bitter melon, as a scientifically validated herbal medicinal plant, can lower elevated
blood sugar levels. The study revealed that a 100 milligram per kilo dose per day
is comparable to 2.5 milligrams of the anti-diabetes drug Glibenclamide taken twice
The herb E. senticosus contains the constituent lipophilic which can fit
into hormone receptors. It is useful when the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
(HPA) is depleted. Symptoms of this condition include fatigue, stress, neurasthenia
and sore muscles associated with the hypo-functioning of the endocrine system and
Cinnamon bark is known to have remarkable pharmacological effects in the treatment
of Type- II diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance. Cinnamon contains a flavanoid
that can mimic the action of insulin and work synergistically with insulin in your
body to help regulate blood sugar.
Corosolic acid is an active compound that is isolated from the leaves of a Southeast
Asian tree commonly called banaba. The leaves of this tree have been used by Filipinos
for centuries to treat diabetes and kidney conditions. A study published in the journal Planta
Medica in 2001 compared a whole-leaf extract of banaba with insulin in cell cultures.
The researchers concluded that the whole herb has a glucose lowering effect. Another
study reported that banaba leaf extract contains at least three active ingredients
that positively affect blood sugar.
