5 Powerhouse Nutrients to Help Maintain Balanced Blood Sugar
Blood Sugar – BioTRUST, OCT 27, 2022 1:00 PM
Do you sometimes struggle with any or all of the following:
If YES, there are five key nutrients you need to be aware of and will want to make certain you’re consuming properly.
To understand WHY these 5 nutrients can make all the difference for you, though – especially if you’ve tried other approaches for the energy, brain fog, and other issues and it feels like “nothing really helps” -- it’s first essential to know…
WHY IT’S MISSION-CRITICAL FOR YOU TO MAINTAIN BALANCED BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
52.9 MILLION adults over 45 years of age in the U.S. may struggle with blood sugar issues – that is, they have poor “glycemic command.”
In other words, over 60% of American adults 45 and up are metabolically unfit… and many don’t even know it!
This means that, on a daily basis, they struggle with the ability to properly metabolize carbohydrates, which is how the body breaks down carbs to produce the right amount of sugar it needs.
This poor glycemic command can have very noticeable and detrimental effects on how you look, feel, think and act – including in terms of your energy, brain clarity, appetite issues, and irritability.
And the problem only seems to get worse over time, as the prevalence is greater with increasing age, with 80% of adults over the age of 65 being in a similar boat.
No matter your age, it is vital that you maintain healthy blood sugar levels, in other words, and so a little more explanation on why is important…
YOUR BLOOD SUGAR – EASILY EXPLAINED – AND THE BIG PROBLEM
Your blood sugar levels are basically the amount of the sugar called “glucose” in your blood.
This glucose is your body’s primary source of energy. This includes being the key source of “fuel” for your brain and your central nervous system!
Glucose is absorbed by cells throughout your body and combined with oxygen inside your mitochondria – the “power plant” inside your cells – to create “ATP.”
And ATP is what powers your cells and promotes your body’s cell growth.
Now, when you consume carbs, glucose enters your blood and the hormone called “insulin” is released to help your cells absorb the glucose they need.
However, here’s the PROBLEM…
When too many carbs and sugars are consumed – which is, unfortunately, quite commonplace with today’s Standard American Diet (SAD) – your body can become less sensitive to the hormone insulin…
…Even more so if you also don’t get enough exercise, have excess levels of stress, and/or you have less-than-stellar sleep habits!
This means not enough of the blood sugar, glucose, is absorbed and it instead remains in your bloodstream.
In other words, your blood sugar is too high.
This can lead to a wide variety of issues and, again, among the most common are feeling low on energy… brain fog… feeling “out of control” hunger… and feeling irritable or too “moody.”
That’s why it’s so important to take smart steps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, such as reducing processed foods and sweetened foods, getting plenty of exercise and proper sleep, and consuming high-quality and effective forms of the right nutrients.
5 SPECIFIC NUTRIENTS ARE AN EASY AND POWERFUL WAY TO HELP (HOWEVER…)
Research shows that consuming the five nutrients below can be quite helpful in supporting balanced blood sugar levels – and all the benefits that come with it, including in terms of energy, brain clarity, healthy appetite management, and more.
An important caveat, however…
You MUST pay very close attention to ensure you’re consuming clean and premium-quality versions of each of these ingredients.
(Because if you consume low-grade versions of the ingredients, of course, you risk not experiencing many or any of the benefits!)
With that noted, here are the “big five” healthy blood sugar support ingredients to make certain you’re getting daily:
CHROMAX® CHROMIUM PICOLINATE
Chromium may be the “superstar” among the five star ingredients and is an essential mineral that enhances the action of insulin in the body. More specifically, it influences the efficient transport of the blood sugar, glucose, into the body’s cells.
And the premier form of chromium picolinate you’ll want to take that is shown to have better absorption is the patented form called “Chromax®.”
Chromax is a clinically substantiated ingredient that may even assist with weight loss while helping maintain lean muscle mass.
And yes, Chromax has been shown to promote metabolic wellness by supporting healthy glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity.
In one bioavailability study, for example, Chromax chromium picolinate showed 15X higher absorption than other forms of chromium, including 2X better bioavailability than two other popular chromium nicotinate complexes.
In brief, Chromax has been shown through clinical research to promote metabolic health in a number of ways including helping insulin function better and improving blood sugar metabolism… and even helping reduce carbohydrate cravings!
Berberine is a powerful plant-derived compound that has been used in Asia for hundreds of years to support healthy blood sugar levels.
And research has shown that supplementation with berberine supports healthy glucose metabolism, and it may do so by activating an enzyme called AMPK, which supports the transport of glucose into cells to be used for energy.
For example, one randomized controlled trial provides poignant evidence of berberine’s potential to help with carbohydrate metabolism. In the study, researchers found that participants who supplemented with berberine daily for 3 months experienced significant decreases in fasting and post-meal blood glucose as well as HbA1c and other biomarkers of metabolic wellness.
CINNAMON BARK EXTRACT
Cinnamon has been used as a healing spice for thousands of years, including in Ancient Egypt where it was regarded as a gift fit for kings.
And multiple studies show cinnamon can, indeed, be beneficial for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels!
A recent systematic review and meta-analysis, for example, found that as little as 120 mg per day of cinnamon may be useful for helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Unlike the other glucose disposal agents mentioned above, cinnamon may affect the activity of certain carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, in turn assisting with healthy insulin function and blood glucose metabolism.
Benfotiamine is a fat-soluble version of vitamin B1 that supports healthy glucose metabolism.
It may even help maintain healthy advanced glycation end (AGE) product activity! AGEs are potentially harmful compounds formed when proteins or fats combine with sugar in the blood and have been associated with early aging and various health issues, so healthy activity on this front is important!
Naringin is a citrus bioflavonoid (i.e., polyphenol) with well-established antioxidant properties.
And yes, research shows this bioflavoid may also assist with healthy glucose metabolism and insulin function.
WHY YOU MUST BE CAUTIOUS WHEN CHOOSING A BLOOD SUGAR SUPPORT SUPPLEMENT
As you can likely tell, it can be quite challenging to get these five nutrients from your diet alone.
That’s why choosing a clean, top-quality supplement that provides them really is so “mission-critical” today!
However, before you choose a blood sugar support supplement it is vitally important to BE CAUTIOUS of those that…
#1. DON’T PROVIDE THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS
Please never merely believe claims made on the front of supplement labels. Instead, turn any blood sugar support supplement around and look closely at the ingredient label. If you don’t see the blood sugar support ingredients covered above – especially the Chromax and the berberine – please think twice about using that product!
#2. DON’T PROVIDE THE RIGHT FORMS OF THE INGREDIENTS
Even if a supplement lists the five ingredients above, there are different forms of these ingredients and you need to make sure they include high-quality and effective forms!
For example, when it comes to the “superstar” ingredient – chromium – as you learned above, you want to be certain it specifically contains the patented, clinically demonstrated and higher absorbing Chromax form.
#3. PROVIDE KEY INGREDIENTS IN INSIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS
A common practice with some supplement providers is to “fairy dust” – providing the right ingredients, but in insignificant amounts that won’t really help you!
Why would they do this? In some cases, unfortunately, it may be to trick you – you may know the ingredient is effective for blood sugar support, but they’re hoping you don’t know how much you should take daily.
Here at BioTRUST, we take great pride in providing not only clean, high-quality ingredients but providing key ingredients in effective amounts so they deliver on their promise!
